Umbraco Festival Germany 2018

For the sixth time, byte5 is bringing the German Umbraco festival to Frankfurt!

Written by:

14 sessions given by 17 speakers from 8 countries. Seeing your friends, meeting new Umbracians from all around the world while sipping a tasty Umbraco cocktail before you head to the karaoke stage. Sounds like something you wouldn’t want to miss? Then join us, byte5, at Umbraco Festival Germany! Early Bird tickets are still available till the 28th of February.

Last year, the German Umbraco festival – formerly known as umbOktoberfest – was given a massive make-over: Bearing a new name and with an even stronger emphasis on tech talks - the Umbraco-Festival Deutschland (UFD) was born.

On 27th of April 2018, the German Umbraco festival returns for the sixth time – and it might be the most international one yet. The first European festival of the year is a treat for German-speaking Umbraco fans and international ones alike: Sessions will be held in both English and German. But as we all know, there’s so much more to an Umbraco festival than its fantastic sessions. 

What’s in store for attendees at this year’s UFD?

As the tradition goes, UFD will kick off with a pre-festival party at the byte5 office – from which you can see the sun slowly set over the famous Frankfurt skyline while you enjoy talks with your fellow Umbracians.

The festival day starts with byte5 founder and UFD creator Christian Wendler officially welcoming you and the rest of the Umbraco crowd. Before you dive into your day of interesting sessions, Umbraco veteran Doug Robar gets you fully awake with a good ol’ Level 5 Good Morning.

Get ready to gain insights from leading Umbraco experts! Look forward to the keynote given by Chief Unicorn Mr Niels Hartvig himself. Let Rune Strand and Mads Rasmussen from the HQ tell you more about the newest buzz that is Headless CMS, learn more about Content Commerce from Ucommerce’s Anders Stentebjerg or listen to Carole Rennie Logan from Equator talk about the decisions and challenges you face when maintaining an Umbraco project. These three and many more sessions are awaiting you!

What else can you expect?

The sessions will have to come to an end eventually, but the festivities won’t! Mingle with your Umbraco friends at the after party and have an Umbraco cocktail or two as sun sets again over Frankfurt. And prepare to belt out your favourite 90’s boy band song when the party moves to one of the local karaoke bars!

With a brand new and more spacious venue for attendees to mingle/eat/relax and more speakers than ever before, UFD is well on the way to being Germany’s biggest Umbraco festival to date. If you want to be part of this exquisite Umbraco extravaganza, get your Early Bird ticket at € 99  before they run out on 28 February!

Your festival ticket includes an invitation to the pre-festival party on 26 April as well as attendance at the festival itself on 27 April, along with some delicious catering. So, get out your calendar and pencil in these two fantastic events!
