The in-person conference was held March 19-20, 2012 in Berkeley, California, and was open to all eZ Publish users, developers, and partners.  It was the first event held by our Meetup group.  Here is a quick recap of what went on.

The group was small, but the connections made were more than worthwhile and we certainly hope to keep the momentum going in the US, Canada, and the rest of the Americas.

Monday March 19

- Intros: partners, client, developers, eZ representative

- Brainstormed Meetup elements; list is found here:

We're already implementing at least one of the suggestions by starting a regular "quick code share":

- US office team, eZ Publish roadmap discussion led by Jon Henry, Senior Technical Consultant, Professional Services Division, eZ Systems

- Presentation by Joe Briand of Granite Horizon on marketing eZ Publish

- Presentation by Peter Keung of Mugo Web: a case study on common themes and eZ Publish best practices across eZ Publish media sites: The Christian Science Monitor, Computer Shopper, Rasmussen Reports, and The 49th Shelf

- Presentation by Greg McAvoy-Jensen of Granite Horizon on mobile site big picture considerations

Tuesday March 20

- A call with Bård Farstad and Sophie Hill of eZ Systems, discussing: upcoming eZ Publish features; November release (which will not create big backward-compatibility problems); eZ Market extensions (YouChoose, eZ Apps, Odoscope); US office; eZ Publish community board, project innovation board

- New features in eZ Publish 4.5 and 4.6 by Jon Henry of eZ Systems

- Code share session: importing social media data by Brandon Chambers of Granite Horizon; excluding subtrees from fetches by Peter Keung of Mugo Web; an eZ Publish command line tool (eep) by Doug Plant of Mugo Web

All are welcome to join our Meetup group:
