As you might already know between the 14th and 16th of November the Romanian TYPO3 Community organizes the first ever major international TYPO3 event in the eastern part of Europe. It is called TYPO3 East Europe and will be held at the Golden Tulip Ana Dome hotel in Cluj Napoca, Transylvania, Romania. While it’s aiming primarily at the Eastern European community we welcome also people from all over Europe and why not the whole world.
TYPO3 East Europe schedule
The event will last for 3 days. The first day is dedicated to universities and the general public. The public will be able to see introductory sessions about TYPO3. This is targeted at people who never worked or even heard about TYPO3 before. We will explain why TYPO3 is the best ECMS out there and how can TYPO3 help them to achieve their goals. Attending on these sessions will be open for everyone and free of charge.
There will be also a workshop with the universities which will focus on the use of TYPO3 in the university world. This is on an invitation only basis. If you want to attend then contact the organizers.
Days 2 and 3 will be the core of the event and here we expect TYPO3 developers and companies that work with TYPO3 to share their experiences and to learn about each other. There will be sessions on a broad scale of topics from general TYPO3 topics to more advanced like Flow/Neos and also case studies, business topics and project management. Of course each of the nights will end with a big social event which will be held in one of the many bars/pubs in Cluj (still to be decided).
Btw you should know that being a university city and a business centre, Cluj has plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants and they have generally speaking much lower prices compared to Western Europe.

Cluj Napoca – the location
Cluj Napoca, Romania is one of the most dynamic cities in Eastern Europe with a very large IT community, some 8000 people work in the IT industry with a growing tendency. It’s located in the north-western part of the country, close to the border with Hungary.
It is a place of legends, being located in Transylvania where according to many legends vampires roam the forests. We’ve seen some and guess what ? They were learning TYPO3!
Also it’s very easy to get here. There are direct flights to many places in Europe (more details on how to get here). I won’t say more about Cluj, i will let you see the video below and if you want you can read more here and find a nice guide here.
That being said, I’m waiting for you in Cluj in November!
