Zheta International at MODXpo


Two and a half years after the first MODXpo in Dallas, Texas, USA, MODXpo took to Utrecht, the Netherlands for the first MODX Conference in Europe, bringing together more than 190 MODX developers from across the globe. On November 10th 2012, Zheta International’s website development team travelled to Europe to gain greater insight and hands-on experience of MODX technologies.

The detailed schedule consisted of a full day with 13 interactive sessions hosted by some of the world’s top experts. The programme consisted of two Keynotes: The State of MODX by Ryan Thrash, who co-founded MODX in 2004, and Why We Built MODX Cloud by Kevin Marvin, discussing the building of the beta MODX cloud. MODX Cloud is a toolset and platform design allowing website designers to manage their websites without worrying about servers, software issues and compatibility. Six informative presentations and three workshops were also held.

The first workshop was held by Susan Ottwell, demonstrating the building of an entire MODX website from start to finish in only ninety minutes. Another session covered the hot topic of responsive and adaptive website design, during which Menno Pietersen discussed responsive and adaptive web design and development and how it can be used to gain a competitive edge. This session provided a practical and comprehensive insight as well as the use of the new Flexibility package.

 Other event highlights included Speeding up your MODX Sites, Developing Extras for MODX, and Evolution to Revolution – A Journey, also presented by Susan Ottwell as she discussed how and why she switched to MODX, what advantages and disadvantages she found along the way. 

As the last event in the program, attendees were invited to take the stage during the MODX Showcase, to show their finest MODX projects. An After Party provided the opportunity for guests, speakers, designers and developers to socialise, share ideas and ask the Experts.
