In this session Sebastiaan will will challenge you to actively participate in the Umbraco project through the magic land that is called GitHub. You too can contribute and you don’t need anything else than your brain.
Disclaimer: this session contains some of the best 80s songs in existence 🎵, if you’re allergic you would be well advised to bring ear plugs. Strobe lights will NOT be used for visual effects, in fact there will be a lack of visual effects as Sebastiaan is not very good with powerpoint transitions 🙈.

As we'll already be at a brewery it'd be rude to not grab a quick drink before heading on to the after party!

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
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!

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.
We're looking for partners who are as passionate about the Umbraco community as we are and can help us with spreading the word and delivering even better experience for our attendees than in the past! Get in touch!Contact us
