Umbraco is constantly evolving, but while this continuous development works wonders for its functionality, it threatens to leave us poor developers in the dust!

Here, we’ve highlighted a few events that you can attend to stay right on the cutting edge of your craft:

Events for Umbraco developers to attend

Codegarden – June 7-9, 2017

Billed as the biggest Umbraco community gathering in the world, this year’s event takes place in Odense, Denmark from June 7th to June 9th. The events will include talks and panels of Umbraco experts, workshops, master classes and exclusive announcements from Umbraco HQ. See what’s on here.

Ticket prices are currently €600 (plus VAT), but will rise to €650 from 1 May.  Reserve  yours.

Can’t convince the boss to send you to Denmark? There is something a bit closer to home the same weekend:

Code Slinger 2017 – June 7-8, 2017

This is a 2-day interactive conference that is coming up on June 7th and 8th at the America Square Conference Centre in London.

The event will focus on coding and development broadly, but will doubtless contain a great deal of useful material for Umbraco developers.

Register or find out more.

CodeCabin – TBC

This enigmatic event bills itself as an ‘un-conference’. So let’s go through the looking-glass.

Everything is a bit odd about CodeCabin. It is an ‘invitation only event’ which you can apply for. The location… remains mysterious – or at least undisclosed. There is no schedule or syllabus, and attendees will really be developing their own 3-day retreat on the fly. It actually sounds like a lot of fun.

Think you can sell this to your boss? Apply here. It is limited to only 20 attendees, so perhaps that air of exclusivity and prestige will help you.

UMBX ‘Umbraco workshops on tour’ – April 27, 2017

The next tour date is 27 April in Frankfurt, Germany. Called ‘Bear the Load’, this workshop will focus on flexible load balancing using Umbraco, as well as how to write load balancing-aware code in that context.

They will also present ‘Microsoft Azure with Umbraco & Merchello’, which will show you how to integrate Umbraco websites into the Microsoft Azure cloud, at the same event. Register here.

It is a tour, though, If either April or Frankfurt are inconvenient, the same material will be presented in Amsterdam on 18 May.

So, the next few months really seem like busy ones for the Umbraco community in Europe (and whatever Bond-villain lair or Thunderbirds base CodeCabin takes place in).

Here’s hoping we manage to see you at one or two of them.
