Lessons learned from BeeCon 2017
My experience at Alfresco Meetup at London (March 1, 2017)

BeeCon at Etopia screen

BeeCon 2017 is the Alfresco Developer Conference. However, despite other product conferences, this one is organised purely by volunteers from Order of the Bee. In fact, no one earns money with this event, even there are some people paying with their own money to provide services or facilites to attendees.

This year keensoft, a UST Global company, was selected as local organiser. Many people from keensoft Zaragoza offices collaborated to make this event real, joining efforts with other relevant Order of the Bee members during four months.

In the end, all these work worth it, as this event has been successful from many points of view:

  • 10% attendees increment
  • 20% sessions increment
  • 50% sponsors increment
  • 81 companies involved from 28 countries

Taking apart these figures, BeeCon has become the place where Alfresco experts share their experience about the product, the ECM market and many other topics that arise during the coffee breaks, the cocktails or the birds of feather sessions.

A week for the history. Last BeeCon was unforgettable for many of us. Let’s face this year with a new toolset of knowledge, experience and good vibrations from Alfresco Community. And thank you all for visiting us, it was a real pleasure to have you all in Zaragoza.
