This week's news in the eZ ecosystem: eZ Platform v2 reaching beta, to hack or squash bugs at the next eZ Conference and more.
eZ Platform Version 2 Reaching Beta
Exciting news this week as Amit Golan-Gutin, Product Marketing Manager at eZ Systems, announced eZ Platform v2 beta.
"We are on the verge of our upcoming release of eZ Platform version 2 as we have released the first beta of 2.0 this week. We hosted a webinar yesterday to provide a sneak peek of what we have been working on for the past few months, especially for developers."
"If you're a developer in the eZ community, we invite you to do hands-on testing of this new beta release, and eventually contribute with some pull request to help improve it. For that, you can install the beta via composer or get it on https://ezplatform.com/#download-option."
eZ Conference 2018: To Hack, Squash Bugs, or?
eZ Conference 2018 will take place on June 5 to 7 2018 in Cologne, Germany. At previous conferences we (eZ Systems) organized Bug Squashing sessions, an eZ Dev Bar and a Hackathon (London 2017). For the next conference, we'd like to organize something a bit bigger. We want to hear your ideas, and most of all, if you would be interested in such an event.

Contributing to eZ Platform
With eZ Platform v2 announced just this week, we already received contributions by Douglas Hammond (wizhippo) and Jani Tarvainen (janit). Douglas submitted a pull request to add the Object State tab to location view, and Jani's pull request is about making v2 admin sidebar buttons sticky.
A quick reminder to our community: we still have some free PhpStorm licenses available. Read my blog on how to obtain one!
