Creating a website using the latest version of eZ Platform

Workshop abstract

Choose Your Own Adventure with one of our supported installs and follow along with the foundation best-practice examples of creating a website using the latest version of eZ Platform. In this workshop, you will learn practical ninja skills to go from zero to hero by watching a live install and build of an eZ Platform site. This inside look at how eZ Systems uses their own product internally is presented by eZ's Technical Product Manager and covers the most current workflows and steps supported and recommended by eZ.

Setting up a developer environment

Set up the developer environment in 3 simple steps:

  1. Install Virtual Box 5.*
  2. Download the appliance (size: 5GB; username: websc; password websc)
  3. Import the appliance to Virtual Box and run it

The appliance is based on Ubuntu and has all services needed by workshops installed. All code with git repos cloned is also in the appliance, you might need to do a git pull. You will need to reinstall PHPStorm since the demo license was valid for 30 days.

Remember to use a laptop with a processor capable of hardware virtualization and at least 4 GB of RAM (8 GB is highly recommended). Regular hard disk will do, but having an SSD is an advantage.
