Local Meetups

There is an interest by the Community to organize an eZ Meetup in London (UK). If you are interested in this, do leave a messages in the Slack thread.

If you want to help organize, or just attend. If you have ideas, or think we should link up with existing Symfony or PHP Meetups in the area, we would love to hear from you.

Winner of the eZ Connector May Competition

"We wish that all could win! However, like the World Cup, only one can be left to raise the eZ Connector trophy. The winner of the eZ connector May competition is the Mailchimp connector. MailChimp is an email marketing solution that allows you to build customizable email campaigns as well as automate your email marketing initiatives. Emmanuel, who is working as a senior consultant at our partner Smile, developed the connector on his personal time (and name)."
