Alfresco to Host Worldwide Meetups for Community and Customers
CMIS, Alfresco Product Roadmap, Implementations of Alfresco Share and WCM Sessions Included
LONDON—March 4th, 2009 —Alfresco Software today announced that it will host a series of Alfresco Meetups for Community and Customers in Europe, North America and Australia starting April 21 and running through May 14, 2009. The Alfresco Meetups (formerly known as Alfresco Community Conferences) are informal, full-day events designed to promote the exchange of information, ideas, product design and development plans between Alfresco’s Customers, Partners and Community members and its Product Development team. During these events, Alfresco will also present the Credit Crunch Innovation Awards to winners.
This year’s Meetup series will feature a barcamp-style technical session and customer-led case study presentations from a range of public and private sector users. Alfresco’s Development team will also lead discussions on Alfresco’s product roadmap, updates related to the new Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) and Alfresco Share implementations.
Enterprise Customers, Certified Partners, active Alfresco Community members and developers are invited to participate in the Meetups and to take the opportunity to share feedback on roadmap reviews, prioritization, and design discussions.
The Meetup schedule includes:
• Utrecht, NL on April 21
• London, UK on April 23
• Rome, IT on April 28
• Paris, FR on April 30
• Chicago, USA on April 29
• New York City, USA on May 5
• Edmonton, CA on May 7
• Sydney, AUS on May 11
• San Francisco, USA on May 14
“We are very excited about this year’s Meetups since it is the first time participants from all over the world have the opportunity to discuss and share how they are using Alfresco within their organizations,” said John Powell, CEO of Alfresco Software. “This year’s events will focus on providing our users with valuable information on how to extend the value of Alfresco and open source technology to improve collaboration and worker productivity while keeping IT costs low. Given the current economic climate, we felt it was important that we came to our community and customers rather than requiring them to travel to meet us.”
The events are free to attend, but space is limited so please register early.
