Starting as a humble intern, Rune has now been with Umbraco HQ for 4 years. He has been working with pretty much anything you can get your hands on in a growing company like Umbraco, ranging from marketing, development, onboarding, documentation, support and more. Today, he has firmly settled into the role as the “Umbraco Coach & Cloud Counselor”, heading the Umbraco training and certification program along with onboarding new clients to the Umbraco Cloud. Rune’s enthusiasm for all things Umbraco is only rivaled by his intense love for pour over coffee.

Previous festivals

This year marks the third Umbraco Poland Festival. If you’ve not been to the festival before or would like a recap of the fantastic talks and sessions we had last year, check out the previous edition!

Take me to 2017
Umbraco Festival


Kraków is a city brimming with history and this year’s venue is no exception. Browar Lubicz, an old brewery dating back to 1840, will provide a unique backdrop to the festival.

Spread across 3 floors (and complete with a steam room to rival HQ’s) it’s definitely worth taking some time to explore it between talks!

ul. Lubicz 17 J
31-503, Kraków

See you there!

By far the best Umbraco festival for bangs for your bucks….from the great talks to the community, I know why Umbraco is called the ’Friendly CMS. If my budget could only stretch to one conference this year, I would pick Poland.

I had an amazing time at the Poland Festival. It’s was a great venue with a lovely group of attendees. It’s clear that Umbraco is set to be a growing force in the Polish web development community. Cogworks did a great job organising a great venue and an awesome pre-meetup social.
