In the German forums, we’ve been thinking about organizing developer meet-ups in some of the most active German cities for a while. These meet-ups are intended to address all developers working with (or planning to start working with) OXID eShop. They provide an opportunity for attendees to introduce their current interesting projects, get to know each other, and share ideas and experience. Attendees may also find common links for collaboration in certain projects.
Our first OXID developer group meeting will be on Friday, March 11th 2011 at the Geyserhaus e.V. in Leipzig. All are welcome to join. For this initial event, I was also able to persuade Christian Zacharias to hold a half-day OXID eShop training starting at 12 AM, followed by the proper meeting in the evening. Needless to say, I’ll also be there, as this event will give me a chance to answer your OXID questions, and to note your valuable input. The event is free of charge, so if you’re in or around Leipzig on that date, don’t hesitate to register yourself in the OXIDforge wiki.
Later this year, similar events will happen in Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Frankfurt and Cologne. We’re looking for volunteers to organize them (come on, it’s simple!), so feel free to start your own wiki pages to get things rolling. OXID partners, send your developers as well!
