KenticoCacheDoctor 2.0 Now With Kentico.Glimpse

Today I have a quick update for Kentico developers out there on my KenticoCacheDoctor project. In case you are not famliar with it, KenticoCacheDoctor is my mini open source project for working with Kentico 12.0 and Caching. I'm happy to announce that version 2.0 has been released as an updated NuGet package. A HUGE thank you goes out to Sean G. Wright for his contribution to the project, as this whole update was created by him. 

Not only did Sean clean up some of my lazy coding, he also created an integration into Kentico.Glimpse for KenticoCacheDoctor. That's right, now you can install a slightly different new NuGet package and the information that KenticoCacheDoctor provides is shown as a custom tab in Glimpse, just like the Kentico.SQL tab is shown for debugging Kentico SQL statements.

Keep reading after the jump to see this new integration.

I'm Speaking at Prairie.Code() 2019

I'm speaking again next week, September 13, 2019. This time I will be giving a session at Prairie.Code() 2019 in Des Moines, IA. This is another conference I have not been to before, but it is part of the highly regarded Amegala tech conference series. I have personally heard many good things about these conferences and how good of a job Amegala does in organizing them. 

I am presenting on improving some soft skills that all developers our there can benefit from with my favorite presentation of the year "How to Win Friends and Influence...Better Developer Estimates". I have given this talk a few times now, and the feedback and particiation from the audiences at THAT Conference and Code PaLOUsa have been amazing. As a result, I'm excited to be off and traveling to lovely Iowa to talk about developer estimates.

I'm Speaking at Kentico Connection Denver 2019

In little less than a week from now, October 2nd-4th, Kentico developers, partners, employees, and customers will make the annual pilgrimage the largest Kentico event of the year, Kentico Connection. This year the event is located Denver, CO (again). I'm happy to announce that this will be the 8th time that I am speaking at the conference.

There are a ton of new topics this year, like the re-brand of Kentico Cloud to Kentico Kontent, .Net Standard support in Kentico EMS (and eventually .Net Core), and the rise of #KenticoPhoenix. If you are at all interested in attending Connection to hear about topics like these, I couldn't recommend it more. In fact I recently recorded a podcast episode on why Kentico Connections rocks.

This time I will be giving a session titled the "Best of Both Worlds". That's a pretty brave statement in the context of both Business and Technical worlds. What I really mean here is how do we keep digital and marketing teams happy at the same time as technical teams. I hope to communicate why I feel hitting the best of both worlds is possible. Keep reading after the jump for the full abstract of my session.

Kentico Rocks Podcast Episode 24

Episode 24 of Kentico Rocks features special guests Kyle Mathews, Founder/CEO of Gatsby and the Gatsby open source project, and Ilesh Mistry, Kentico Architect at MMT Digital. I'm very grateful that both Kyle and Ilesh were able to join me to discuss Gatsby, as I am a huge fan of the technology and think that Gatsby and JAMStack in general are the future of where web development is going (especially when you throw in Kentico Kontent to connect your static site to become fully editable). That's why I even presented on it this year at the Detroit Tech Watch.

Our goal for this episode was to let developers out there know why the combination of Kentico Kontent and Gatsby together is such a killer combination (spoiler alert, the performance is amazing). We even talked about a few specific plugins and starter templates to get you started. Listen to the lastest episode after the jump.
