Fifth international TYPO3camp in Venlo, The Netherlands
February 05, 2017
Expect a wide array of seasoned speakers when the 5th TYPO3camp in Venlo kicks off, 9th March, 2017. The two-day event targets newbies and experienced TYPO3 enthusiasts alike.
“This is a camp with very low barriers,” says co-organizer Edward Lenssen. “We hear from participants that this camp is relaxed, also attracting people who are not so familiar with TYPO3.”
The TYPO3camp in Venlo is very international, and participants come from as far away as Romania and France, Belgium and Switzerland. “We expect to see a lot of attendants from Germany”, says Edward. Venlo is situated on the Dutch border to Germany, not far from the Ruhr district of North Rhine-Westphalia, one of the largest urban areas in Europe. “For this event we have also changed location to Domani, a church that is now mostly used for cultural events.”
The camp runs over three days, kicking off with a Pre-party at Café Central. The second day will be a conference and the last day an unconference, barcamp style.
“We have more quality and more diverse speakers than ever before,” says Edward, a co-owner of the Venlo-based TYPO3 agency Beech.it.
The speakers include CEO of TYPO3, Inc., Mathias Schreiber, Sven Wolferman on responsive web design, Björn Jacob on the new form engine, Morton Jonuschat, Petra en Joey Hasenau, Patrick Broens, Richard Haeser and Joost de Valk talking about Yoast for TYPO3, and Daniel Zielinski about localisation TYPO3 projects.
Speakers like Robert Douglass, Michelangelo van Dam, Lucas van Lierop and Gijs Roeffen will talk about general Internet related topics, such as Docker, the PHP roadmap and security.
Edward Lenssen organizes the event together with Patrick Broens, Ben van’t Ende, Maarten Mandemaker and Jacco van der Post.
