Skrift presents: February's Digest


The best Umbraco festival arranged in Sweden ever. The only one, but anyway ...

by Emma Ekholm

Why should you go to uSweFest?
I’m certain that the 7th of April will be a day to remember. It’s a day for new experiences, learning, meeting new people, eating good food and having a lot of fun at this first Umbraco festival in Sweden. We at Webmind are thrilled to have some of Europe’s most experienced Umbracians as speakers and workshop hosts, and I’m 100% confident that everyone who works with Umbraco will find this day very motivating. The festival will go on from early morning until late at night and the schedule will be packed with sessions, workshops, mingling and popcorn. If you are hooked on Umbraco, don’t miss out on this day!

What else is great about Gothenburg besides uSweFest?
One thing we at Webmind appreciate a lot is beer — preferably a nice craft beer at that. Gothenburg is called the Swedish capital of craft beer because of all its microbreweries and pubs who focus on quality rather than quantity. You can always go to a pub and enjoy a nice cold beer that you never tried before.

As Gothenburg is located near the coast of Sweden, you can get some of Sweden’s finest seafood; we'd love to recommend to you the best places.

If you like wildlife, the Universeum is the largest Science Centre in the Nordic region that brings together animals, nature, technology, and experiments. You begin by a Swedish mountain stream, dive down into the depths of the ocean and much more before you end in an amazing rainforest.

Unfortunately, the amusement park Liseberg won’t be open until the end of April which means that you will miss out on Balder, one of the world’s best wooden roller coasters.

Who are Webmind then and who am I?
Webmind is a six-person web agency, looking forward to the day where we have found the right people to call us a ten-person web agency. We specialize in Umbraco and e-commerce and we are a team who are passionate about building a great web. Among our customers, you’ll find companies such as Volvo, Lambretta Watches, and The Swedish Enforcement Authority. My name is Emma, I’m a co-owner of the company and actually the one that came up with the name Webmind nearly thirteen years ago. I mainly work with our brand uSite — template-based sites for our smaller customers.

Do we want to thank anyone?
Yes, we do! We want to thank all the great people and companies that make it possible for us to arrange uSweFest. Niels Hartvig, Lars-Erik Aabech, Markus Johansson, Anders Burla Johansen, Søren Spelling Lund, Tim Geyssens and Marcin Zajkowski, we are happy and grateful to have you with us as speakers and workshop hosts during this day. And Umbraco and uCommerce, we are very thankful for your sponsoring.

Are you going to buy your ticket later?
If you are thinking of joining us, don’t wait too long. Out of the initial 70 seats, there’re only 20 seats left. Get your tickets today! Looking forward to meeting you in April! I’ll be one of hopefully at least 10 women there.
