eZ Conference & Awards 2009 in Paris

(PresseBox) (Dortmund, ) The 7th annual eZ Conference, hosted by eZ Publish creator eZ Systems, promises to be as engaging and vibrant as ever. This Web Content Management & Digital Media conference is attended by hundreds of industry leaders and experts each year. It will be held outside of Norway for the first time, in the heart of Paris on June 25 and 26. All web professionals, including the entire eZ Ecosystem, are invited.

This year's eZ Conference will also help to celebrate eZ's 10th anniversary as a company. Years of innovation, a unique business model, and collaboration with an ecosystem of developers and business partners, have made eZ the leading Open Source Content Management company.

eZ Conference 2009 has a wide but focused appeal. eZ's commitment to free and Open Source software means that its ecosystem includes some of the brightest, well-informed professionals worldwide. Past speakers have included Open Source leaders Rasmus Lerdorf ("father" of PHP) and David Axmark (Co-Founder, MySQL), as well as business and technology experts from IBM, Lagardère, Mozilla, and Schibsted.

The target audiences include: developers and customers using or interested in eZ technology (eZ Publish, eZ Flow, eZ Find, eZ Components or PHP in general); Web Content Management professionals looking at best practices as well as new trends; and Digital Media Publishing specialists, as eZ's robust, media-ready solutions are especially counted upon for online magazine and newspaper websites.

The two days of diverse and stimulating presentations are accordingly split into three tracks: eZ Technology, Web Content Management, and Digital Media Publishing. Confirmed speakers currently include James Hewes, Head of International Development at BBC Magazines; and Angela Broer, Director of Business & Strategy at Gruner + Jahr New Media Ventures. Presentation proposals in all three tracks are still being accepted throughout February.

Aside from the presentations, the conference offers many other useful opportunities for attendees. The eZ Systems team will be on-hand to discuss technical or business issues concerning eZ products. Further learning and networking will take place between Open Source experts, developers, implementors, content managers, web hosting companies, and more. There is also the eZ Awards and party, which recognizes the successes of members of the eZ Ecosystem over the past year.

The conference's venue, near the Champs Elysées in Paris, provides endless choices for extra-curricular dining, sightseeing, and culture. It is easily accessible, a central location in Europe, and representative of eZ's widespread reach.
