FREE CFCamp 2015 ContentBox Beer-Shop

Luis Majano
Sep 30, 2015



Ortus Solutions is pleased to announce that we’ll be bringing a ContentBox CMS 3.0 pre conference Free Beer-Shop for this year's CFCamp 2015.  What’s the point of doing a workshop in Germany if you can't drink beer? Well the answer is simple: none. In Ortus we like to make sense, at least most of the time, so we are giving away free beer during the ContentBox 3.0 workshop, hence the name, beer-shop.

The beer-shop will be led by experienced beer taster Jorge Reyes, who will show you how to install ContentBox in your local machine using CommandBox CLI and create awesome sites with ContentBox widgets, clustering, offline admin deploys, and much more!

Brad Wood
Aug 07, 2015


For the last 3 years, Ortus Solutions has put on a week-long online training extravaganza called ColdBox Developers Week, or CBDW.  These are completely free webinars that you can watch from the comfort of your home or office, and the best part is they're ALL RECORDED for your belated viewing pleasure.  Obviously we've grown to more than ColdBox despite the name  You can expect to learn about ContentBox, our modular CMS; CommandBox, our CLI, REPL, and embedded CF server; or our sweet Lucee Couchbase cache extension.  

This year CBDW will be held the entire week of November 16-20th.  We're still finalizing the schedule, but we'll most likely have 4 webinars a day between 9am and 4pm Pacific time. We're also working on a collection of raffles and door prizes to give away, so please mark your calendars now.  

We'll have signups for the actual sessions later on once the schedule is tightened up.  If you'd like to present on a cool topic that relates to a Box library, please feel out this form here and we'll get in touch.
