django CMS Day

django CMS day

The Italian Django community is organising the first conference dedicated to django CMS: django CMS Day, in beautiful Florence.

django CMS Day will take place on the 1st of October 2016 at FabLab Firenze (14 via Panciatichi, Florence), 09.00-18.00.

django CMS’s popularity is growing rapidly, especially amongst users in the Italian community. django CMS Day will bring them together to discuss new developments and best practices and collaborate on its code base.

The event is organised by the Fuzzy Brains open-source association led, with support from volunteers in the django CMS community in Italy and beyond.

The conference will include talks, workshops and round-table discussions; topics will include:

  • best practices for django CMS users and developers

  • lesser-known features of the system

  • what’s coming next in django CMS

  • getting involved in django CMS development

Collaborative activities will include proposals and planning for new features and improvements, involving members of the django CMS technical board, and hands-on coding sessions to share problems and solutions.

The day’s programme

A lot will be packed into this one-day conference::

• morning: dedicated to 4 talks in 40-minutes slots. If you are interested in participating as a speaker please see the call for proposals and send us yours!

• afternoon: dedicated to workshops and round- table discussions: roll up your sleeves and get your hands on the code! We’ll discuss new ideas and problems, and we’ll have workshops led by django CMS experts. Submit your proposal for a workshop, discussion or other activity.

Naturally, there will be coffee and lunch breaks!

Full details of the programme will be published on the django CMS day website in due course - stay tuned for updates.


Tickets are on sale now, for a mere €15, which includes breakfast, refreshments and of course lunch.

About the initiative

Alongside Fuzzy Brains, django CMS Day is supported by Nephila, a Florence-based web agency that contributes heavily to the development of django CMS, and FabLab, where it will be hosted.

Divio is participating as a sponsor: “We’re delighted to be involved in this initiative, which will make a valuable contribution to the development of the django CMS project and the growth of its community. We’re looking forward very much to the first django CMS Day.”

This is just the first django CMS event of its kind - we intend it to form a template for similar events held by other groups to support the international django CMS community in other cities: django CMS Days around the world, to reflect django CMS’s own growing popularity and user-base.

Your own django CMS Day

There are many thousands of developers working actively with django CMS basis, in every corner of the world. If you think that there are enough of them in your town or city, or willing to travel there, and you think you might like to host a django CMS conference - just let us know! We can support your event, and perhaps send a member of the core team to speak or run a workshop for you.

And if you'd like to start with a more modest event, such as a meetup, we can help with that too.
