To try something a bit different this month we're going to run a panel discussion. The evening will be broken into 4 key topics as below, each with 30 minutes of discussion. Remember to bring your questions, the evening will require participation from us all.
When: Wednesday 20th March, 7 - 9pm
Where: Building blocks Ltd, 1 Portland Street Manchester M1 3BE (It's moved, we needed more space!)
With Umbraco marching on and new releases surfacing monthly, the talk of v6, v7, v4 being maintained and MVC is the community happy with the direction the platform is taking
How are people getting on with Umbraco in the production environment? Maintaining, upgrading, scaling and enhancing existing sites can be a challenge.
What do you think of the current skillset in the Umbraco space? Is there a shortage? What's missing to train up those who are new to Umbraco or have been sat on an old version? Did someone say documentation?
There's always things we wish we had. What's missing from the platform that would be really helpful? What do you think of the MVC implementation, will you even be using it?
The panel is made up of a number of key people who have very different experiences of the Umbraco space.
