In May 2007 the 1st european ADempiere conference in Berlin – organized by the german ADempiere association – brought together developers from all over the world.
Gaining from this succesful first conference, the “ADempiere Bazaar” community met again for the 2nd european conference in 2009; step by step turning from a virtual into a real community.
Starting as only the german ADempiere association, these compelling conferences brought progress and new members into the community, so that the association got the opportunity to open up and rename to be the “ADempiere association” with international orientation. The next step in bringing together developers from all over the world is not the european, but the World Conference.
Now for the first time in September 2011 the ADempiere World Conference takes place at the Beuth Technical University in Berlin.
The conference tries to bring together every party interested in ADempiere: Community members, service providers, users or people solely interested in ADempiere.
Notable ADempiere developers will be sharing their ADempiere know how in talks or workshops with valuable best practice advice and real world use cases.
We can tell from the quickly increasing number of international participants at the conference that the community was desperatly waiting for an event like this.
“The interest and feedback we get for the world conference is just more proof for the global collaboration of community members and the growing network around ADempiere. I’m looking forward to another great experience with this positive and progressive spirit surrounding the community.” – Kai Schaeffer, chairman of the ADempiere association.
Another item on the World Conference agenda is the general assembly of the aossication and the election of a new chairman.
Of course the weekend will also be used to incorporate social events to get to know each other further and to exchange know how and experiences.
