Mage Unconference 2018 NL Utrecht, 21th-23th September 2018


The third Dutch Magento Unconference is here. After the success of the 4 unconferences in Berlin and our very own in 2016 and 2017 we're doing this awesome event again. - Follow us on Twitter for more updates.

What's an unconference?

Well, there are talks, a location and people coming together to listen to those talks but that's about where the similarities end.

An unconference is all about sharing knowledge and socializing. There are no speakers and no pre-determined talks. The program as made on the spot by writing your talk- or discussion idea on a piece of paper after which we'll all vote on the best talks.

With 4 rooms and 4 time slots that means 16 talks on both the Saturday and Sunday. In between those talks we'll have coffee breaks and a lunch. We'll make sure there is enough time to socialize, discuss talks and meetup with friends.

For who is the unconference?

We're aiming to attract a wide audience. With both technical and non-technical subjects like marketing and conversion optimization or team management techniques at previous events it made it interesting for anyone working with Magento.

Not used to speaking? This event is perfect to get some experience. With no expectations and an open and welcoming atmosphere you can try out a new talk idea or just bring up a subject you are passionate about.

Not Dutch? Not a problem! The main language at the Unconference will be English. This way we ensure everybody will feel welcome.

The venue is at Fort aan de Klop in Utrecht. Yes, that's right... an actual fort!
It was built in 1852 to defend the city of Utrecht. from 2004 it was renovated and turned into the event location it is today.

We have 45 sleeping spots in the buildings and a hotel nearby or in Utrecht itself.
During the day we'll use 4 rooms where talks and discussions can be held and in the evening we'll use the patio and surrounding grass for drinks, BBQ and entertainment.
