Get out the RV, Umbraco is going on tour! Join Emma and Trine from HQ, plus Callum Whyte from the Community for a whole lot of activities to get involved with this month. 

As you may already know, Umbraco is holding the first-ever U.S. Summit here in September, in Umbraco’s American home - Charlotte, NC! 

The Umbraco U.S. Summit will be a little different from the Codegarden conferences you know and love, with a focus on the business. We hope that this will spread the word about Umbraco in the U.S. and help us grow in this new market. 

But what about you, our Developer Community?


Umbraco is touring the U.S.

Director of Development Relations Emma Burstow and our BAM (Brilliant Activities Manager) Trine Nissen will be coming to Charlotte and beyond to meet YOU! What’s more, Emma and Trine will be joined by Umbraco Community stalwart, 5x Umbraco MVP and umbraCoffee barista Callum Whyte.

This is a fantastic and unique opportunity to learn about Umbraco and the Umbraco Community from the experts - and we are keen to meet you and talk to you! 

Here are some exciting activities that we have planned:


Stop 1. Minneapolis, MN (September 25 - September 27) 

Umbraco Meetup in Minneapolis - September 26, 2022

Meet everyone from hardcore Umbracian to Umbraco-curious in the local Minneapolis area at this upcoming meetup, featuring exciting talks from Umbraco Community representatives Callum Whyte and Kevin Meilander. 

In Callum Whyte’s talk Umbraco Anywhere, he will dive into the limitless possibilities of running Umbraco unleashed by the recent launch of Umbraco 10. If you’re curious about pushing boundaries and running Umbraco in non-traditional contexts, as an embedded platform and so much more, make sure you get yourself over to this meetup!

Kevin Meilander will be showcasing how you can (re)Build with Umbraco, award-winning style. The Kalahari Resorts Website won the “Best Editing Experience” at the Umbraco Awards 2022 - come along 

The Minneapolis Umbraco Meetup is free to attend and open to all.

Loved by developers, used by thousands around the world!

One of the biggest benefits of using Umbraco is that we have the friendliest Open Source community on this planet. A community that's incredibly pro-active, extremely talented and helpful.

If you get an idea for something you would like to build in Umbraco, chances are that someone has already built it. And if you have a question, are looking for documentation or need friendly advice, go ahead and ask on the community forums.
