A month. Just a month left until we kick off an event that one of its attendees once referred to as “Glastonbury of tech world”. And while we might not have The Killers or The Cure on the agenda, like this year’s Glastonbury, you will definitely hear some... special music on May 23rd, Codegarden 2019 Day 2. But most importantly, we have a lineup packed with top-notch tech and non-tech talks that will delve into UX, documentation, machine learning, Umbraco package building and privacy, among others. Let’s just say, Codegarden Day 2 will be worth the w8… (you’ll get the pun in a bit)

Sessions by acclaimed speakers, hardcore Umbracians and Umbraco HQ

If you’re coming to Codegarden (and you should!), make sure to stay for the whole event as Day 2 of Codegarden 2019 is surely not a day to miss out on.

Anca Bundaru

Anca Bundaru

Senior Product Marketing Manager at Bitdefender, Anca Bundaru will help you understand Why privacy is the most important service you can sell in 2019. According to Anca, no matter what products or services you offer, what market you’re in, you’re in the privacy game, which makes privacy at least as important as a feature or UX.

Stephan Gay, Shannon Deminick & Claus Jensen

As you may have heard, a couple of months back we let the world see the very newest version of Umbraco - 8. And at Codegarden the turbo trio - 3 brilliant Umbraco core developers Stephan Gay, Shannon Deminick & Claus Jensen will be giving a user-oriented approach to introduce you to some of the new cool Umbraco 8 features, changes and improvements. In short, it will be a talk appropriately called Umbraco 8 - worth the w8.

And these are just some of the speakers who will be inspiring, teaching and motivating you to create even better Umbraco solutions. You can take a peek at the continuously updated speaker list (current count - 33) and talks on Codegarden 2019 website.

The first rule about Umbraco Bingo… you don’t talk about Umbraco Bingo. What is that again..? Umbraco Bingo is a semi-official (arguably) event that happens in the evening of the second day of Codegarden, when the conference sessions finish.

And while the Bingo program as per usual is very much hush-hush, we can say that it is something you simply cannot miss out on. All you have to do is bring an open mind. A very open mind.

For now we’ll just leave you with a photo:

Just a moment - there’s more in the goodie bag

As on other days of Codegarden, Day 2 will have the Dream Corner (fantastic new way for the community to interact and exchange ideas) and the Mindful Corner (learn how to clear your head and prepare your mind for a packed Codegarden agenda).

Plus, in the mornings you will be able to join CG Runners to have that fresh jog around the city of Odense. Sightseeing and cardio, a double-win, if you ask me 🏃‍♀️ 


That’s not all. Kris Deminick will also host yoga sessions in between the talks, so after a stretched mind (do people say this?) you’ll also be able to stretch your body.


Are you coming?

If you are, you just read another blog post to fuel up the excitement and we cannot wait to see you in Odense!

And if you are considering to come, know that we still got tickets; however, the sooner you book, the better - it means cheaper flights, cheaper train tickets, and simply less headache:
