Codegarden 2014, Team development on

Monday, March 10, 2014 by Tim Geyssens

BTeXSUBCIAAoYt3Last week we introduced the classroom workshops at codegarden and the first of three workshops  “AngularJS for Umbraco developers”.
This week we are happy to invite you to yet another one, focussing on team development through Umbraco as a Service.

We made Umbraco as a Service to remove all friction when it comes to working with Umbraco, so you can focus on building amazing things and never again worry about installing, upgrades, deployments, hosting and any other infrastructure bits that steal between 8-12% of your time! Getting more productive while doing what you like the most - what’s not to love?


After this half-day event, attendees will have an in depth knowledge of:

  • Creating new projects for your development team
  • Git basics and tools used to run a site locally
  • Deploying between environments (both locally and remote)
  • Advanced debugging and troubleshooting
  • Assigning hostnames and going live
  • Workflow for pushing changes forward and pulling back live-Content

Intended audience

This workshop is suitable for both frontend and backend/.net developers as the focus is on using Umbraco as a service in a team, which consists of different types of developers. It doesn’t matter if you are on a PC or a Mac or don’t have a lot of experience with Git. We aim to bring everyone up to speed on the basics needed to get up and running with Umbraco as a Service.

Workshop materials

While the workshop will start with an in-depth introduction, it will be very much hands on with regards to working on an actual site and seeing what happens when changes occur and how to work with these changes in a team.
We will provide all attendees with a site ready for implementation and a set of instructions on how to proceed with the site. Imagine that the instructions are from your Project Manager and you work in a team to finish a site. This will be as close to real life as possible!


Taught by Morten Christensen, Sebastiaan Janssen and Paul Sterling from Umbraco HQ and main architects behind Umbraco as a service. This workshop will give you insight into using Umbraco as a Service as your main place for running, maintaining and developing Umbraco-based sites.


Workshop registration will open April 1st and will be free for anyone with a Codegarden 14 ticket. It is not possible to get access to these workshops separately.

This workshop has very limited seating, so seats are given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Important: Even though the seats are free, attendees will be charged a no-show fee of €100 if the seat goes unused.

So make sure you have your CG14 ticket(s) by the time registration opens if you want to join the workshop!

    Hello, When will the workshops be taking place? are they during CG14 or on the run up to it? Cheers Tom :)

    They'll take place during the first 2 days of the conference. We will have 2 tracks of sessions as we've always had, and then a 3rd track with workshops on, all 3 running side-by-side

    Will these workshops be recorded ?

    Sounds great cheers Tim :) Looking forward to it

    Workshops won't be recorded since the format wouldn't really work on video, it isn't a show and tell but a half day course :)

    Looking forward to Umbraco as a Service :)
    My host (Surftown) is refusing to install .NET 4.5 - and has been for over two years. So I'm definitely on the lookout for better options and this sounds perfect - with a boatload of useful additions, too.

    @Tim: It would be pretty easy to cut out the 'hands on' parts and just have the "show and tell" stuff. Just like they do on which is pretty awesome.

    Hi Per,

    any chance of these workshops (also Angular JS) becoming online seminars for those that don't have the possibility to go to CG2014?

    @Melvin be there or be square , the workshops alone are worth being there (then 20 session, full day of open space and all of the socializing events), don't miss out!

  10. Gravatar ImageNiels Hartvig Says:

    @Sebastian "pretty easy" still means effort and expenses. The budget for recording and editing videos alone at CG is already over 10.000 USD. We'd like to prioritise the funds for those present - we believe that's the most fair.
