ExpressionEngine Conference, Special Edition: October 15

A few months ago, the great folks who run the ExpressionEngine Conference asked us if we would participate in a special one-day event focusing on ExpressionEngine 3.0. We were more than happy to, and with the venue they are providing along the River Walk in San Antonio, how could we say no?

Modernize, Stabilize, Move Forward

Warning, tech content ahead!

ExpressionEngine 3.0 will bring tremendous foundational advancements without changing the things you know and love. The upcoming Developer Preview release (v3.0.0-dp.1 a.k.a. “DP1”) will not be feature complete nor will it be ready to run on a production site.
