Magnolia Dev Days 2019 - The full recap

Magnolia Dev Days 2019 - The full recap

Curious about what happened during our two epic days of talks, learning and knowledge sharing?

After coffee, croissants and muffins, our guests joined in-depth workshops with Magnolia experts. From how to build websites quickly without the need to write code in Java, to flexing their pre-sales skills while bridging business and technology gaps, attendees could choose from a wide range of topics.

In the afternoon? On your marks, get set, hack!

The first-ever Magnolia mini-hackathon: three hours to eat pizza, drink beverages, and hack with the helping hands of Magnolia coaches. An esteemed panel of judges then chose the winners: Arne Diekmann, Richard Gange and Leah Staniorski with a project about creating an IDE for Magnolia.

The second day started with a keynote from Yariv Adan (product lead at Google Zurich, working on the Google Assistant) about the paradigm shift to Natural UI.

The second keynote was from Jan Haderka, our Chief Technology Officer, about the latest and greatest from Magnolia.

We had a recap of the most recent developments and an outlook for the future, an exclusive preview of the new Magnolia UI, AI-powered contextual search, content models and many more exciting features.
