We won prizes at CodeGarden 2018!

  • Umbraco

This week CodeGarden 2018 took place: the international conference about the open source CMS Umbraco. Our colleagues Tim, Dennis, Jeffrey, Leon and Daniel travelled to beautiful Odense to learn, listen and share. And that's not all, because we've been nominated four times, and we won 2 Umbraco awards! 

Make Umbraco even better

Make Umbraco better by sharing, that is our goal. And that is rewarded by Umbraco: our Perplex colleagues Daniël and Jeffrey received the honourable title 'Umbraco Most Valuable Person' (MVP). For Jeffrey this is the second time in a row! It is quite an achievement, only 20 MVP's were chosen from a community of no less than 220.000 members.

Nomination for Best Package!

Our Security package was nominated as on of the three contenders for the Best Package Award. Jeffrey has a lot of experience on the subject of security, and shared his knowledge during CodeGarden in a session . At his session he discussed security in Umbraco and gave 9 concrete tips to give your security level a boost.
