magnoli conference.JPGIn case you aren't tuned in to the open source grapevine, know that a major Magnolia (news, site) event is just around the corner.

The Magnolia Conference will be held in Basel, Switzerland on September 10th and 11th of this year. Day 1 is Presentation Day, during which participants of the conference can expect  to gain the knowledge to build simple open source content management solutions with Magnolia CMS through expert instruction, hands-on tutorials and case studies.

On day two, Community Day, the whole shebang will close with an "Unconference-style" event run by the attendees. This means that the attendees themselves will be responsible for proposing talks, voting for talks, presentations, questions, etc.

For more information on the event, including a detailed schedule of speakers, head on over here. If you aren't going to be anywhere near Switzerland but would still like to get out and shake some hands, check out our complete list of events for something a little closer to home.
