Kentico 8 Marketing Automation Sample Code Snippets

I'm Speaking at Kentico Connection 2014 Prague

I'm very happy to announce that I will be attending and speaking at Kentico Connection 2014 Prague. Yes that's right my passport is fully renewed and airfare is booked to the Czech Republic for September 29th - 30th. Kentico Connection is the premiere conference for Kentico developers, customers, and partners. Attendees can expect to gain deep technical and industry insights into all things Kentico and I am very honored to be a part of it.

My session, Harness the Power of Marketing Automation, will walk through Kentico's built-in Marketing Automation tools. The goal of the talk is to show attendees how the platform can be used to save time and generate more traffic to their website. 

There also is an added benefit that my fellow Kentico MVP's and I will all also be attending the conference in Prague. For the first time ever all four of us will be in the same timezone, same location, and most likely same room. This is a great opportunity to pick our brains on your Kentico issues.

Tonight I retro-fitted the code to work with the new API as well as both versions 7.0 and 8.0 of Kentico. You can grab the download of my Yammer Web Part Pack 1.1 after the jump.
