I'm Speaking at Kentico Connection Boston 2014


On November 10th and 11th, just a few short days away, Kentico Developers, Partners, Employees and Customers will be meeting up in Boston, MA for the 2014 version of Kentico Connection. I am attending and speaking again at the best, most informative Kentico CMS conference of the year. 

As always I am truly looking forward to the event. It is going to be a great opportunity to meet and network with other Kentico Developers and Partners, especially Brenden Kehren who won a free a ticket to the conference from my own give away. However, this conference is going to be jammed packed for me. I am pulling triple duty. I will be giving two sessions and taking part in a new event this year, a live CMS-Connected show.


For the technical people out there, the full abstract of my developer track session is:

Upgrade like a Pro
Brian McKeiver has upgraded dozens of websites from one version of Kentico to the next, and experience shows some upgrades are smoother than others. That fact has not changed with the most recent version of Kentico. Attend this session to ensure your Kentico 8 upgrade is a success. You will take away upgrade tips and tricks, learn tools of the trade, and receive well-tested troubleshooting techniques.


For the internet marketers and content admins out there, the full abstract of my marketing track session is:

Harness the Power of Marketing Automation
Automation isn't just for robots anymore. Join my session to see how you can use Kentico's built-in Marketing Automation tools to reach your customers in a highly personalized way. See how you can deliver innovative solutions that save you time, increase traffic to your site, and nurture more leads.


The CMS-Connected show is a new addition to this version of the conference. The hosts have asked me to take part in a panel discussion on Web CMS implementation pitfalls. All conference attendees are invited to join in, plus all you internet readers are welcome to register and virtually attend as well. To register head over to The Common Web CMS Implementation Fails registration page.

I'm also very excited about listening to a few of the other speakers during the developer track. Fellow Kentico MVP, Bryan Soltis, will be speaking on Live Tiles in Kentico 8.1 right after my own developer track session. Bryan has been kind enough to show me some of the Live Tiles that he has been working on, and they are impressive.

Don't miss out this conference if you are a Kentico Developer or Kentico User. Find out the full details at the main Kentico Connection 2014 website. Tickets are still available.
