All of the events will offer networking opportunities to enable attendees to deepen their collaboration.
“This is the first time that we’re rolling out such an extensive event program, which replaces our annual Basel Conference this year,” said Dominik Steinacher, Chief Commercial Officer of Magnolia. “Our footprint has been expanding for many years, but we have felt a very pressing need to get closer to our customers where they are. We have really incredible brand names who are using Magnolia to create complex digital experiences, and it’s a great opportunity for them to share their stories, as well as learn from their peers.”
Unconference for the Magnolia community
Magnolia has held an unconference for many years as part of its annual conference, but now the event is ready to take off on its own. Taking place in Basel in June 21, the unconference will provide a forum for around 150 developers to set their own agenda and then work in collaboration to schedule, present and discuss technical topics with one another.
“When we changed the format of our annual events, it was extremely important that we maintain a focus on our developer community,” said Zak Greant, Magnolia’s Senior Technical Evangelist. “The unconference has always been a highlight of the year for developers and technical experts who work with Magnolia, so we’re really excited to run it as a stand-alone event that will deliver tremendous value. It also gives our community the opportunity to learn about our latest innovations and what’s coming next.”
The unconference will also include a networking event that will enable Magnolia users and clients to interact with Magnolia employees and the community.
The workshops will take place on June 22 in Basel, making it easy for participants to attend both the unconference and the workshops. The intensive hands-on workshops will will focus on specific areas of Magnolia development.
