Recap of OXID Commons 2012 – A tremendous E-Commerce Conference

OXID Commons 2012

First of all: Thank you all! Thanks for coming to OXID Commons 2012, thanks for the wonderful speeches, for all the great conversations had everywhere, thanks for making OXID a big family. Over 600 people, plus roundabout 300 via live stream, took part in a great event empowered by over 50 exhibitors and sponsors at the fair ground in Freiburg.

Roland Fesenmayr, CEO of OXID eSales AG, opened the schedule, in his keynote he reviewed the last twelve successful months and talked about our focus during the next phase.

All in all, more than 40 lecturers presented the most recent topics about e-commerce and the OXID Ecosystem in two different tracks. The top-notch schedule offered various sessions and discussions about topics like multichannel, internationalization, news in OXID eShop version 4.6, community related projects, semantic web in e-commerce with GoodRelations, how to adjust performance in projects, and many more. Please feel free to watch the OXID Commons archived live streams of both rooms.

The mandatory after-show party was great again with the added bonus of nice weather and supporting live band, which encouraged networking, stimulating conversations and quenching refreshments.

On the very next day, May 25th, the unconference took place. The 77 registered developers came together in a leisure barcamp style to talk about the community project Admin2.0, to discuss the new module system in OXID eShop version 4.6, the language handling (mapping) and what the community expects from OXID eSales. Also, our Chief Software Architect, Erik Kort, gave us an insight into the plans for OXID eShop version 5.
