Beli Manastir, Osijek-Baranja 31300


Microsoft Community Osijek together with Microsoft Croatia® with support from INETA and Hupro are organizing the first regional community conference KulenDayz 2009. Conference is bringing together
leading IT Experts from the region with local IT Community and giving them a chance to spend a weekend filled with 18 attractive sessions presented by top speakers and relaxing at Kopacki Rit Nature Park and enjoying unspoiled nature.


Conference is held at Hotel Patria which is situated in the heart of the beautiful region of Baranja, in Beli Manastir, 20 min. drive from Osijek, on the main road Osijek-frontier of Hungary.


Sessions in conference are organized in 4 parallel tracks:

♦ Advanced Development
♦ Databases
♦ System Infrastructure
♦ Project Management

The idea is to make a conference "a little different", so together with traditional sessions presented
in conference halls there will be a number of unplugged Open Space and Chalk & Talk sessions presented at Gazebos in Ethno-Village. In Open Space sessions all participants are invited to co-create the agenda and pick the discussion topics.
Chalk & Talk sessions are "unplugged", so without powerPoint/laptops/beamers but with good-old flipcharts!

As a part of HEROS happen {here} events, sessions at the KulenDayz 2009 will be mostly technically oriented, level 300/400 , with highlight on the new products and technologies (Visual Studio 2010, Azure, SQL Server 2008, Windows Server 2008, Hyper-V, ASP.NET MVC)


Idea behind this conference is to make an informal event for IT specialist where people will meet, exchange ideas, attend attractive sessions/workshops and overall relax.

On Sunday, we will organize a half-day trip to Kopacki Rit Nature Park where you can choose activity from
Canoeing&Biking, Hiking, Boat-trip, Birdwatching, etc.

There is a Welness center in hotel where you can enjoy in one of the welness packages (relax, anti-stress, manager) with sauna and massage.

We plan to install two XBOX360 in chill-out area and organize Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock tournament.

If there is enough interest, we will organize a fooball match Croatia vs. RestOfTheWorld or even better: Developers vs. DBAs!

On top of that, there are plenty of places where you can sit outside and have a
beer with your friends...


Sessions in conference will be presented by top speakers and experts in technology from:

♦ Belgium
♦ Slovenia
♦ Croatia
♦ Serbia
♦ Bulgaria
♦ Macedonia
