This year, the festival took place on 20 November in the Museum of Communication at Museumsufer Frankfurt. Located right in the middle of the city with a view on the skyline, such a location naturally offers a much better atmosphere than the conference room in a hotel could ever do.
After a short introduction, the visitors experienced an entertaining and informative keynote by Mads and Rune directly from the Umbraco HQ in Denmark.
In classic sessions, Umbraco experts such as Marc Stöcker, Tobias Flügel and Søren Spelling Lund imparted a lot of Umbraco knowledge to the community present. A session by online marketing specialist Marcus Kämmerer dealt with the secrets of “Emotional Commerce”, and Alexander Brückner of LivingData, one of our clients, explained in his show case how to create an industry CMS for the public sector with the help of Umbraco. Videos of all sessions will gradually appear on our YouTube channel in the upcoming days.
Additionally, there were technical hands-on workshops on Umbraco as a Service (Mads and Rune), AngularJS (Sören Deger), Umbraco Load Balancing (Jeavon Leopold), and an FAQ session in an open space format with Mads, Rune and Dennis from Umbraco.
Of course, all guests were entertained in the best umbOktoberfest manner. After the last sessions and workshops the museum closed its doors. After a short walk to the nearest stop, the annual tram party in the legendary Ebbelwoi-Express started with two DJ’s and a not inconsiderable amount of original umbOktoberfest beer.
