The development of the Frankfurt-based digital service provider byte5 in regards to its favourite tool, Umbraco, is impressive: since 2010, we have been working almost exclusively with this open-source CMS from Denmark and in 2011, we became an official gold partner. In 2012, we organised the very first Umbraco festival in the German-speaking countries and in 2013, we took on the role of training ambassador in this area. Furthermore, byte5 has been Germany’s largest team of experts since 2015. Anyone who knows us and our enthusiasm for the Danish framework for sophisticated web projects will already suspect that the story is far from over at this point.
Due to the rapid growth we are experiencing this year, our team of experts took another important step when the largest internal Umbraco training week in the company’s history took place in November. Sören Deger, our very own Umbraco guru, trained a total of eight of his colleagues: five of them became Certified Masters, one a Certified Expert and two Certified Professionals. This does not only put us on the official list of German Umbraco developers, but it also internationally, where there are twelve certified Umbraco developers.
For byte5’s chief developer and Umbraco trainer Sören Deger, this is an important step into the future: “Umbraco has been developed in our office for many years because the CMS completely convinces us. Its talents and the basis on Microsoft technology is only one important aspect for us. The other and much more important thing is that it is very important to always be up-to-date with the best practices and new functions and to support Umbraco as a strong partner. I am happy that as a team, setting a good example with having everyone partake in the training courses is a matter of honour for byte5.”
The best practice approach, on which the four official Umbraco training courses are based, means that our developers and designers are equipped with maximum Umbraco know-how and are consequently well equipped for the high requirements our clients have in business-critical web projects. Because expertise alone does not guarantee creativity, but it is the best basis for great results.
