Finally, here is the full #WEBSC program

Can you believe it’s already mid July? :)

That only means that our Web Summer Camp in Šibenik is just around the corner. Today, we bring you the final updates, related to five tracks that you can expect during the event. Plus, for the additional one - for your companions.

This track will be focused on the core skills for any web focused teams - whether they are agency teams or in-house teams of some mid or larger companies. There will be two engaging workshops within this track. Paul Boag, a leader in digital transformation and user experience design thinking, will hold a workshop “Become a user experienced agency/team” that will be very helpful in terms of developing and offering sharp user experience services. This is an absolute must!

The second workshop “Applying Agile in a Web Development Agency”, delivered by certified Professional Scrum trainers Ana Roje and Ognjen Bajić, will focus on the agile workstyle in the everyday surroundings of web dev agencies. The goal of this workshop is to explain why and how modern web development and digital agencies can benefit from implementing agile principles and practices. Prepare yourself for a combination of theory, discussions, and hands-on exercises.

If you are interested in #martech trends, first-hand experiences related to building websites and shops with an increasing number of tools, solutions and architectures that work, you should join this track. This track will gather experts from CMS/DXP, eCommerce, PXM, DAM and similar vendors to discuss how to craft better web projects. 

Janus Boye, a veteran in the CMS/DXP industry and organizer of Boye conferences in Denmark and the US, will join us in Šibenik to moderate a two-day discussion forum. Contributing speakers will be: Steven Pemberton, Chair of Forms and iXML working groups at W3C; Barbara Slade Jagodić, Founder of SEO agency SLADE; Ron Brumbarger, President of Apprentice University; Andy Kaiser, Founder of Ninetailed personalization platform, Robert Petković, Digital Analytics Director at Pro Media Group marketing agency and Ondrej Polesny, Developer Evangelist at Kentico.

All things Javascript will be discussed at the separate track, which will also offer three engaging workshops. Maxim Salnikov, from Microsoft Azure, will deliver a workshop on “Automating a service worker with Workbox”. As a cloud and frontend geek who has been building web applications since the end of the last century, Maxim has a lot of extensive experience and knowledge to share. During his talk, Maxim will give you tips on how to start with Workbox 6, implement typical functionality for an offline web application, and go further by adding your own caching logic.

Milan Rakoš from Netgen and Marko Žabčić from Effectiva will deliver half-day workshops. The focus of Milan’s workshop will be on “How to build a real-time interactive chart with React Native and D3”, while Marko will talk about “Native Web Components for Everyone with LitElement”.

PHP track will focus on PHP related tools and techniques that you can use in real applications and everyday work. Two engaging full-day workshops will be included in this track.

David Buchmann from Liip will deliver a workshop - “Fixing PHP Applications”. During his workshop, David will help you to look carefully to prevent errors, mitigate the impact of errors and track what is going on in your application. There will be a bunch of hands-on exercises with various debugging strategies that help to locate the cause for an error quickly.

Josip Stuhli from SofaScore will deliver a workshop about “Advanced caching practices” that will offer an in-depth overview of caching techniques, from standard usage to advanced setups with strong focus on HTTP cache. The most important part of any caching system is cache invalidation which will be covered thoroughly in this workshop. 

Symfony PHP also deserves its separate track, as there are many related topics to discuss. We prepared two full-day workshops to keep the conversation alive. We will have Łukasz Chruściel joining us from Sylius to deliver a workshop on “Developing headless e-commerce with Sylius and API Platform”. Participants of this workshop will work on building a modern backend of e-commerce API based on the Sylius platform. 

After his previous participation at Web Summer Camp in 2018 and 2019, Nicolas Grekas, from Symfony, will join us once again and will deliver a workshop about “HTTPClient advanced usage and best practices”.

While you are at the workshops improving your knowledge, your companion can take several days off and vacation with us by exploring the surroundings on captivating tours. We plan to keep you companions entertained with plenty of sightseeing tours, sports and relaxation activities. You actually might be a little jealous after :) More reasons to come back to Šibenik!

So, there you go! Don’t forget to bring your sunscreen, because there will be plenty of time for recreational activities and sunbathing on beautiful Amadria Park Šibenik beaches.

Please make sure that you read the Covid-19 info section on our website with the latest updates on this topic. We want everyone to remain and feel safe at Web Summer Camp, so considering there will be local participants coming from Croatia, but also those coming from other countries, we came up with a fair system that should make sure that no one is infected and putting other participants at risk.

Last, but not least - here’s a big thanks to our sponsors - Gold sponsor: Netgen Layouts; SIlver sponsors: CJW Network, Infolox, Q Agency; and Bronze sponsors: SofaScore, Sylius and SensioLabs.

See you soon in Šibenik!
