Magnolia just launched Magnolia Now and Magnolia Core

Magnolia, the rapidly growing Swiss CMS vendor, launched an innovative new solution - Magnolia Now™, a cloud-based digital experience platform - at its seventh annual conference in Basel, Switzerland on June 8-9. Magnolia Now takes the hassle out of the deployment and operations of content management and gives companies the ability to go to market fast.

This year’s Magnolia conference was the biggest ever, with over 300 attendees and 30 talks taking place over two days.

With a history of supporting past eZ Publish conferences in Croatia, it shouldn't be a surprise to you that I've come out of semi-retirement to promote Web Summer Camp 2016. This year's event is being held in beautiful Rovinj, Croatia from August 31st through September 3rd.

Web Summer Camp 2016 continues to build on past efforts of hosting a conference which covers both PHP and eZ Publish while adding Design as a new topic this year. Those attending the conference will be able to dive into PHP and Symfony at our PHP topic, learn more about eZ Publish and eZ Platform at our eZ Publish topic, and learn about web design, UX, content, project management, and information architecture in the Design topic.
