TYPO3 East Europe 2015 has been announced and it will be held on the 13th-14th of November. It is now a good time to remember the previous edition, T3EE 2014.
T3EE 2014 was the second edition of this event, initially started in 2013, its goal was to bring together developers, agencies and community members, from all around Europe. Also this year, Arxia is volunteering the organization of T3EE 2015.
Predating the main event, on Thursday we had a workshop at the Casino Urban Culture Center, organized by Arxia in partnership with the Cluj-Napoca City Hall and Cluj IT Cluster. The workshop focused on sustainable software solutions for the public administration, fostering a dialogue between the institutions from our region and our guests from Germany and the Netherlands, who shared their experiences and best practices in e-government, the use of open standards and web accessibility.
In the evening we had a welcome dinner held at the Matei Corvin restaurant, where we indulged ourselves with tasty local dishes and drinks.
The main event started on Friday morning, at the Golden Tulip Ana Dome Hotel. At the entrance, the Halloween atmosphere was given to the participants by a vampire, which offered some “blood”, to loosen up a bit.
After the opening ceremony, presented by Daniel Homorodean, the presentations started with a speech made by Rens Admiraal entitled “The current state of TYPO3 Neos + the short term roadmap”. The event continued with talks about community software, NEOS and TYPO3 CMS.
After the talks ended, everybody prepared for the main party, the Halloween party, held at Casa TIFF, in a Halloween theme decorated cellar. There you could find: witches, clowns, dark angels, vampires, scuba divers, Frankenstein and even Batman joined the party. Like all the others T3EE parties, we had a great time, with plenty of food, drinks (open bar, how else?) and had a lot of fun together till the break of dawn.
The second day started at 10 AM, in the same location, this time on two session tracks. On this day the topics were more diverse, with talks like the TYPO3 Campus Project, Atomic development, WebGL – 3D World in your Browser and so on.
For the afterparty we went out to a brewery, formerly a local beer factory – Fabrica de Bere Ursus – where as usual we had a good time, shared experiences and talk about different things concerning the TYPO3 world.
All in all, it was another great event, where everybody came together, shared their thoughts, opinions and experiences.
We expect to see you all and experience our future T3EE events!
