You can't talk about anything Umbraco related without mentioning our community. They are a massive part of who we are. We often brag about them, calling them the friendliest and most skilled .NET open-source community in the world, and once you get to know them you'll understand why.
The Friendliest Community in the World
We currently have a highly dedicated and active community of over 200,000 “Umbracians” worldwide. We call them the friendliest CMS community in the world, because that’s what they are - always there to share their Umbraco experience and knowledge with others.
One of the most astonishing and admirable things about our community, is that it transcends the online and becomes real gatherings all over the world in the form of local Umbraco meetups and even Umbraco Festivals. Some even sit down and discuss Umbraco packages while eating ridiculously spicy hot wings - just because they feel like it. We ❤️ them for all this.
Codegarden - a (very!) different tech-conference.
Every year we invite all Umbracians - old and new - to participate in our big three day long Umbraco conference, Codegarden. It’s a bit like a massive happy family reunion combined with a big welcome party for all the newbies. It’s one to experience, and definitely one to remember!
It’s a conference that requires a lot of hard work from everyone at Umbraco HQ, but also an event that really ties us all together and is extremely rewarding on so many levels. It’s often at the first Codegarden the penny drops - and perhaps your jaw - when you finally realise that Umbraco is not just a software system. It’s… you’ll see 😉
