CloudFest 2023 | cPanel Blog

CloudFest is always an event to remember. With representatives from cPanel, Plesk, and WHMCS in attendance, WebPros was not only a sponsor of the event but also out in full force. With over 6,000 attendees, 250 speakers, and over 150 partners from 65 countries, CloudFest truly is the #1 even for the cloud industry.

We gathered at Europa Park in Germany, with partners, enthusiasts, and the cloud community to network and share industry knowledge, best practices, and more. Lets take a closer look at the event.

Hackathon 2023

This year’s Hackathon was a total success. The WebPros team even came together for a hack or two during the event, having a great time exploring our skills and turning big ideas into reality. 

The result was WappSpector, a CLI utility to scan and identify the CMS/top frameworks used in a hosting server’s website. The primary goal of this hackathon project was creating an MVP of the CLI utility, one that will scan the vhost’s folders and display the results for the most popular CMS/eCommerce/framework technologies used in the hosted sites.
