How We Modeled a Tourism Portal with eZ Platform

What am I? Serverless Concept Mining

With tens or hundreds of thousands of articles, how do you organize content for your editors? And how do you present it to your users? Concept mining is a technique used to categorize content, and we can use it to solve these problems as well as opening doors for the future. Using the Serverless Framework and a little natural-language processing magic we can quickly and easily annotate our content.

eZ Platform Cloud and eZ Launchpad: Don't Host, Don't Deploy, Don't Install: Just Code!

Extending eZ Platform v2 with Symfony and React (Presented by eZ' Lead Developer and Technical Product Manager)

eZ Platform v2 is out and the UI has been fully redeveloped using Symfony as well as libraries such as React. You'll learn to quickly and simply extend eZ Platform's UI to fit your needs and add your own features to the platform. This session will go through the major extension points in the application and how to integrate your code-be it Twig-based classic web pages or with more modern and more interactive React.js code.

Using eZ Platform in an API Era (Presented by eZ' Lead Developer and Product Manager)

The time for monolithic applications is far gone. Now developers are building solutions by assembling applications and services of all kinds and in all ways. In this session we'll focus on how eZ Platform embraces the modern way of building applications-from interacting its content repository service via the remote API, to integrating third-party services simply within eZ.
