Extending Sitecore for multisite, mobile, and more

Please join us for an evening of great Sitecore presentations, cocktails, and networking. Sitecore customers will delve into two exciting extensions of the Sitecore platform. Both presentations will have a technical focus, but will also appeal to web managers. 

Agenda
6:00pm Arrival & Networking
6:45pm Welcoming Remarks and Announcements
7:00pm Multisite Presentation, Allegis Group
7:20pm Mobile Presentation, Clinical Care Options
7:45pm Q&A
8:00pm Closing Remarks & Networking

Multisite Implementation, Allegis Group
With 7 brands and 40 unique sites, Allegis needed to consolidate their disparate web systems. Utilizing a common technical framework, reusable code, functionality, and templates – Allegis is able to customize and deploy new Sitecore sites in quick succession. 

Speaker: Jaina Baumgartner is the Lead Web Developer at Allegis Group, one of the largest recruiting companies in the world. Jaina has been a .net developer for the past 8 years focusing on CMS.

Mobile Applications, Clinical Care Options
The destination is mobile, but there are many roads to get there.  Clinical Care Options is a medical education, technology, and medical publishing company, which has been developing sites with Sitecore for almost ten years. Since 2009, CCO has offered both online websites and mobile applications, driven from the same Sitecore instance. The newest versions of these feature real time publication, subscription based access, and ecommerce solutions.

Speaker
Brent Pinkstaff is the Software Architect at inPractice Resources, the software division of Clinical Care Options.  Brent is a long time Sitecore enthusiast, first using Sitecore 4.3 for the flagship CCO website; which has been running since 2005, serving over 200,000 clinicians.


Parking and Metro
District Commons is located two blocks from the Foggy Bottom metro stop and has a parking garage located two blocks away at 2121 K Street. Paid meter parking is also available in the surrounding blocks.

The DC User Group is dedicated to providing a forum for Sitecore users, prospective users, and partners in the Mid-Atlantic and metro D.C. area to share best practices, network, and expand their knowledge of the Sitecore Web Content Management System. The group is open to anyone using or considering the Sitecore CMS, or who has an interest in .NET CMS platforms, regardless of technical proficiency.

    Presentations were very interesting, and presenters were very engaging. My only suggestion would be either to allot more time for presenters, to allow more QnA after presentation, or suggest that presenters present for less time, to allow for more QnA in the same amount of time.

    Brent and Jaina gave great presentations. It's interesting to see how Sitecore can be extended to work in a variety of situations. I wish we'd had a little more time to explore both the multisite and mobile topics.

    Both presentations were quite good. In fact, I would like to see the inPractice mobile application turn into a series of blog posts that cover the particular problem, and solutions that were considered and why they were discarded, and finally how the team felt about the success of the solution selected. Technically speaking, the mobile app, player piano files, manifests, etc are all fascinating.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
