What we love about the ExpressionEngine Conference
First and foremost, we firmly believe there’s a great difference between networking and creating community. EE Conference creates community, and we LOVE community.
Working with some of the most creative and like-minded people in the tech and digital industry gives us a healthy lead in growth and innovation that we’re excited to bring to our clients here in Omaha.
We asked a few of our EECONF attendees here are Omaha Media Group what they enjoyed about the conference last year.
Steph, our Graphic Designer says, “As a graphic designer it was very interesting for me to get some insight into the non-design aspects of site building. One thing in particular I learned is that there are legal requirements for making sites accessible for disabled persons - something that I had never considered before.”
Jacob, OMG Junior Developer said, “ I very thoroughly enjoyed the workshop on building Add-Ons. It definitely helped me re-imagine how I/we build out our applications.”
John, Lead Developer, “My favorite thing about the conference is interacting with presenters and attendees who use ExpressionEngine and learning the similarities and differences about how they manage and develop projects compared to how we do it. The similarities are an affirmation that we're doing things the best way and that we're not crazy. The differences make me things about things differently and sometimes push me to make tweaks or completely alter my approach going forward. It's a fascinating, and at times, challenging learning experience. I also learn just as much talking to the different groups at the party, not just in the conference hall with the presenters.”
EECONF is a great conference for web developers and designers, graphic artists in the web world, and digital agencies. We’re thrilled to have been a part of this community for many years and really look forward to this year in Nashville!
