Knowledge

MuraCon is the only user conference focused solely on Mura CMS. You'll get two tracks over two full days of presentations by both Mura Team members and the best the Mura community has to offer.

Community

Yep. Community. The heart of every open source project. From newbies to power users, MuraCon gives you the opportunity to share and learn from all of them.

Networking

MuraCon will be held in Sacramento, CA, and will be attended by Mura CMS core developers, along with other key members of the Mura community.

Venue

MuraCon will be hosted at The Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel, located at 1230 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95814. It's just minutes away from the California state capitol building and everything else Sacramento has to offer. The conference will run from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on both Thursday, February 18, and Friday, February 19, 2016. Continental breakfast and a lunch will be provided on both days, and are included with your registration fee.
