Next week I’m going to CloudFest. CloudFest itself is not easy to describe. It is an event and the successor of the World Hosting Days. Thus a large part of the world’s hosting industry will be “there”. The first time I was there in 2016. I’m writing a weekly blog post for NovaTrend, a hosting company from Zurich, Switzerland and I thought, it’s a good idea to visit the event to get a better idea what this industry is about. And it was a good idea! It was simply amazing, I met many people, learned a lot and to my surprise, I found a booth from CMS Garden and met friends from open source communities like Joomla, Drupal, WordPress, Contao and other systems. CloudFest takes place in Europa Park, Rust, Germany so everything looks a bit strange to me. I’m not used to roller coasters and conference facilities looking like Disneyland but hey – it’s nice 🙂
In November last year, while attending the Joomla World Conference in Rome, Italy, Soren was looking for someone who is willing and able to make Joomla Partners happy. We discussed the topic at length and after the conference I became a member of the new founded Partnership Success Team. The basic idea of the team is to make partners happy. The Joomla project always needs money, so we offer something in the sense of
”Hey, Joomla can maximize your ROI. We have lots of options … let’s talk :)”
Joomla already has some Partners but we want to have more 🙂
Now I come into the game. I am German, I speak German and CloudFest is located in Germany. Remember, my role is to make partners happy. So I will be at the Joomla booth from Tuesday evening until Friday. Lucky me -CloudFest runs a Facebook page for its attendees. I participated in a competition with this post and … won a VIP-Package … woohoo!
So, have a look at the Joomla booth (will update where it is located) and see you soon 🙂
