Episerver is a modern, Microsoft .NET-based CMS and Commerce platform that supports development using MVC or WebForms, and runs in cloud environments or in on-premise web servers. Episerver’s architecture is focused on extensibility, allowing for customized integrations with established third-party systems. Episerver was introduced over 20 years ago, and is strongly rooted in the European and Scandinavian market. With over 30,000 websites and a global community of over 38,000 developers, Episerver is now influencing over $18 billion in omnichannel revenue. The platform is gaining a major foothold in North America, heavily competing with big names like Adobe, Kentico, and Sitecore. In this presentation, Chris and John will introduce you to the Episerver platform by showing you how to build a new Episerver website and deploy it to an Azure environment. They will also discuss how real-world customers have utilized the Episerver platform to meet their business needs. Speaker Bio: John is a senior .NET developer with over 15 years of experience building corporate websites exclusively with the EPiServer platform.
