Umbraco UK Festival

Did you know that The Cogworks founded the Umbraco Festival movement?

It's true! We ran the very first Umbraco festival back in 2010. 

The Umbraco UK Festival is the largest Umbraco community organised event in the world. It's not just a tech conference, it's the "Glastonbury Festival" of the Umbraco community. The event has been so beloved, that Umbraco Festivals have been popping up all around the world, from Germany, to USA, to Australia.

In 2016 our Polish branch ran their first Umbraco Poland Festival in the beautiful city of Krakow.

Conferences

Talking at conferences a great way to test your knowledge.

We're not only attending conferences, but we're often the ones presenting at them. It's not only about showing people some knowledge, but it's also a test to see if you know it as well as you think you do. We've even been invited to some conferences share our knowledge and perform workshops.

Workshops & Hackathons

We're not just leaders, we're learners.

We encourage our team to learn and experiment.  We run workshops, hackathons and learning events to share and gain knowledge. It's a great way to pass on our ideas, and find out how other people are solving similar problems.

Our past workshops included:

  • Continuous Integration & Automated Deployment
  • Azure & AWS
  • Test Driven Development
  • Kanban and Agile methodologies
  • (The World Famous) Umbraco UK Festival Hackathon

Being Social

We believe that being social keeps you happy.

We are so social, that we organise meetups and other social events throughout the year. These events range from technical & educational seminars, to purely social meetups.

We also run regular events at The Finsbury Business Centre, from BBQ's, to meetups and even quiz nights!

Trivia: Cogworks founded the London Umbraco Meetup group (the first of its kind in the UK).
