The folks over at Netgen (Zagreb, Croatia) wanted me to make mention of the upcoming eZ Publish Summer Camp being held in Bol, Croatia from September 5th to 8th this year. Besides being supportive of almost any conference that promotes CMSs, I thought if my Croatian grandmother was still alive today she would be quite pleased I was talking about Croatia. This three day conference promises to address a number of needs for eZ Publish developers while also giving you a chance to also spend some vacation time in boat and wine country.
The eZ Publish Summer Camp offers three program tracks during the three day conference. For eZ beginners, the Basic Track offers the opportunity to create a simple web site in eZ Publish. During that workshop all core eZ concepts will be explained in theory and shown in practice. More experienced eZ developers will have the opportunity to follow the CMS Track or the PHP Track. The CMS Track topics cover from the latest tricks with eZ Find and Solr to squeezing out milliseconds with advanced caching and Varnish integration. The PHP track will focus on the new stuff coming in eZ Publish version 5, a new Public API, New REST API and more directly from the eZ Publish Skippers.
If you are an eZ Publish fan that wants to attend this conference, do yourself a favor and don't wait too long to register. Currently there is an Early Bird special with price set to 330€ until June 15th. Once the early bird price expires, the regular fee for this conference is set at 400€ (still not a bad price in my opinion). Don't also forget to reserve your hotel room as well as other needed accommodations to make your conference time and stay in Croatia an enjoyable time.
