The Boost Day is back, and this time it's all about community!

Like the previous edition, there are two parts to this Boost Day: Code and knowledge improvement. You'll work together with our core developers, and you follow Shopware enthusiasts for a full day of coding! Also, we will have our workshop for those who are just starting with Shopware 6. 

This time, there will be a much bigger focus on interaction. We will have workshops, Q&A groups, and videos from Dockware. The workshops, as well as the whole Boost Day, are FREE and full of information. 

The focus on interaction is made possible by the use of Gather Town. It is a tool that brings the feeling of a real-world conference into our beloved "cyberspace". 

New topic: Apps! Shopware Apps are supposed to be the next big thing for Shopware. We want to talk about it. Let's have an open discussion (or multiple), give us your thoughts on the topic.

Ask us anything!

What have you always wanted to know about the company Shopware and the people behind it? What things worry you? Technical or curious questions? About the future or the past? You ask - we answer (or at least try!). 

Please ask your questions or vote via git now: ASK US ANYTHING

The questions to be answered at the next Boost Day will be selected on March 08, 2021. 

How is the day structured?

At the beginning of the day, we have a warm welcome, including our developer evangelist Niklas. Right after that, the different workshops are starting. You can decide whether you want to join the Installation Workshop or the Shopware Basics Workshop. 

The Installation Workshop will show you how to get Shopware 6 up and running on your local machine so you can start developing either contributions or Extensions for Shopware. 

The Basics Workshop will teach you all you need to know about the basic principles of developing for and contributing to Shopware. It will be held twice this day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. You can join the installation workshop in the morning and the beginner workshop in the afternoon. 

Already have a running Shopware 6 instance and ready to start coding? In that case, we have already selected and labeled tickets that you can dive right into. Of course, you can also submit your own issues. Our core developers will be there for you on that day as usual.
