Umbraco 8 with Andrew Barta
Discussing Umbraco 8 with Andrew Barta
Speculations and Wishes
Andrew Barta, Umbraco's own North American boots-on-the-ground, will give us a quick "State of Umbraco" and specific insights into the growth of Umbraco in the US. From there he will cover Umbraco Headless which was introduced at CodeGarden 2018. Come hear about the potential benefits that can be utilized from Umbraco Headless and the differences between a standard Umbraco website and an Umbraco Headless project!
Andrew has recently rejoined the Umbraco HQ after taking a year off in the field implementing Umbraco sites with Umbraco Gold Partner Fyin.com. He started out with the HQ back in November of 2013 updating Umbraco TV videos and answering support questions. Now, he is the first point of contact for partners in North America. His role doesn't stop there, he also runs all of the trainings throughout the US and is working towards growing general Umbraco awareness in the states!
The presentation will be followed by a general discussion where everyone is invited to share about projects they’re working on, questions & problems they’re facing, and favorite tools and processes.
As always, all are welcome! If you’re an Umbraco fan, or just curious about the premier open source ASP.Net Content Management System, come on out to our meetup and hang out with some friendly folks. You don't even need to be a developer - content producers, marketers, SEO-fiends, and others can all find something interesting.
5 pm – Socializing begins
6 pm – Informal presentations begin
7 pm – Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

The world seems to grow smaller as our sense of global connectedness grows. Language is one of the few hurdles between us but even that is getting easier to manage thanks to technology. Let's talk about how you can present your web content in different languages.
