Today we’d like to inform you about some upcoming events you should know about.
First off, the site for the OXID user groups was completely revamped and now offers great possibilities to list and search/filter for all upcoming and past user group events as well as to RSVP for these activities.
For this year, the user group NRW has something special in mind: they prepared seven topics for a best practice series when working with OXID. So at the first event this year in Essen the topic will be about virtualization and how to configure development environments for distributed teams and about how to struggle through the deployment process with this technology.
Here’s a list of the user group meetings you might want to join:
- JAN 30th – UG NRW, Essen – Distributed development and deployment
- JAN 30th – UG Switzerland, Kirchberg BE – Optimizing Google Adwords campaigns
- FEB 13rd – UG Munich – initial OXID user group meeting
- FEB 21st – UG Stuttgart – initial OXID user group meeting
Please register for the events so the organizers can plan for the correct number of participants.
From February 14th till 16th the OpenUp-Camp, an unconference under the umbrella of the Open Source Business Foundation (OSBF) will take place in Nuremberg. Like the name of this event implies, this barcamp’s main topic is all around open source in the widest manner, what is the impact of open source and where does it lead us. OXID eSales is a sponsoring partner of this event and will be present on site.
Also in February, you can meet us together with our partners Heidelpay, Nionex, MaPS System and Softengine on our booths at the trade fairs EuroShop (6 / 6F05) from 16th to 20th in Düsseldorf as well as at the Internet World (B1 / D176) on 25th and 26th in Munich. Come along and feel free to contact us for a meeting.
Another event that might appeal to you, if you’re in development or at least close to it, is the annual eCommerceCamp in Jena on March 7th and 8th. This event took place last year for the first time and is open to all e-commerce developers no matter which shopping cart system they use. The topics, by their nature, are heavily technical but also deep into e-commerce. Naturally, OXID eSales is one of the main sponsors of this event again.
Last but not least: The date for OXID Commons in this year is fixed as May 22nd and 23rd – save it! It is already possible to submit presentation proposals, and there are still sponsorship slots available. As usual, on May 23rd, the OXID Commons Unconference will take place for developers around the OXID eShop e-commerce platform.
