After a quick layover, four movies, an adventure in Danish train ticket buying and riding, and a short walk to an airbnb on a street we cannot pronounce (thank you Google Maps), we made it for our second round of Umbraco’s International conference in Denmark: Codegarden.
The conference takes place in the town of Odense, Denmark, which also happens to be homebase for Umbraco HQ (in case you were wondering, here’s how to pronounce Odense like the locals - good luck.)
Collaborating and Laughing at the Gold Partner Summit
We kicked off the week with the annual Gold Partners Summit which brings together representatives of Umbraco Gold Partners from around the globe. We discussed a handful of the many upcoming updates to the Umbraco platform and had a chance to interface directly with the higher ups at Umbraco HQ to talk about upcoming opportunities and collaborative ideas to make the platform even stronger.
After we got business out of the way, we had a chance to catch up with old friends and partners for a kick-off extravaganza at Umbraco HQ. It is customary each year for partners to ship beers from their native country to HQ for all to taste, so naturally we embraced the culture (we didn’t want to be rude.)
Kyle even got tricked into doing a shot of a hellish mixture of what can only be estimated to be pepper oil and pure napalm at the hands of Umbraco CEO Niels Hartvig, which almost melted his face off (luckily it didn’t, yet.)
