CMS Garden UnConference 2019

Logo der CMS-Unconference

15. - 17. November 2019

The offical CMS Garden conference will be an UnConference or BarCamp: Any session (prepared or spontaneously) will be announced informally. Whoever would be interested in a certain topic may post this as well. Usually there will be someone willing to hold a lecture on it. We know from many common activities that it need no more organization than this for a fertile sharing of expertise. Let yourself be inspired, educated, enthused!

And we have the perfect location for this event: The Unperfekthaus ("imperfecthouse") in Essen offers a variety of rooms in different size, creative atmosphere, a rooftop terrace, kicker table and many more highlights. The entry fee includes a flatrate for coffee specialties and cold drinks and there's a tasty buffet all day long.
