As most of you know (especially if you're a digital business owner in Manchester) the Umbraco Manchester meetup venues are found completely by cheek.
Though not this time…
Blueprint Web Tech has offered to pay for a barge for the next meetup! A proper floating barge from http://www.citycentrecruises.co.uk/ There’s a couple of planned talks (see agenda) and plenty time for a social drink from the on board bar.
The cruise lasts for 3 hours and sets off from Castle Street, near Albert’s Shed at 6:45pm prompt.
There is a maximum of 50 people, so places are strictly limited. If you do reserve a place and find you can’t attend please update your RSVP as soon as possible.
It’ll be one to remember!
Code Garden Recap.
Ismail Myatt has offered to give us a recap from the annual Umbraco Code Garden conference held a couple of weeks before.
How are we selling Umbraco?
More of a forum rather than a led session. Sam Flanagan will lead the proceedings but perhaps have a think about the following beforehand:
• How do we explain to clients the difference between Umbraco and WordPress? The advantages of Document Types over modules.
• Any examples of migrations from competitor systems, e.g., Kentico, Sitefinity, etc
• Any examples of where potential customers have been unconvinced by Umbraco and used a competitor system instead
• What evaluation methodologies are customers using during the CMS procurement process?
• Impact of Concorde
Chance to network and enjoy a drink...
