We would like to introduce three fantastic new speakers that are ready to give energetic performances that you will love, plus give you a little more info about the event.

As you know, this year's MODXpo takes place on November 21-22nd in Munich, Germany, at the conference hall of the Munich design agency, Kochan & Partner. The conference is two days, each day offering one track of seminars running from the morning to early evening. Topics include best practices in regards to front-end tooling, back-end best practices in areas of Extras creation and deployment, MODX security, improving your site setup workflow, user and group permissions configuration, and much more.

There will also be plenty of time to meet new people and learn from other MODXers. we've got a room dedicated to code sharing and idea exchanging, while outside we will be offering a pavilion to give attendees a place to take a break and get some fresh air. Less formal socializing is also an important part of MODXpo 2015 and, therefore, we're hosting a "chill and lounge" evening on Saturday night.

We will announce ticket prices soon and special, and very limited, early-bird pricing. So, stay tuned for that!

So, who have we selected to speak at MODXpo 2015? We thought you'd never ask!
