What we're about

The Manchester and North West Umbraco Meetup is a networking group for Umbraco developers, end-users, technical project managers and business decision makers in the North West.

Come along, have a chat and a beer with other fellow Umbracians. Feel free to bring along your laptop and troubles and we'll try and help out. Find out what's happening in the community and maybe we can get some special guests along occasionally. Any Umbraco newbies will be welcomed with open arms.

We're open to all and sundry who have an interest in web development, Umbraco and/or content management systems (CMS) in general.

What is a Server-side Headless CMS?

WeWork

A new year of Manchester Umbraco Meetups begins with an introduction to using Umbraco as a server-side headless CMS, with Phil Whittaker. We are shortly announcing further dates in advance for the rest of the year. Meetups will now be held quarterly going forward, with a regular format of speaker, followed by round table discussion. As usual, there will also be trips to the pub after for beer and a chat! Phil Whittaker has spoken at the UK Umbraco Festival and at several other events. As well as being an expert on headless, Phil is also the author of the popular Positional Content package. Phil says: "We took the ideas of headless and applied the same principles to server-side Umbraco websites, removing the need for client-side applications such as React, Angular or Vue but retaining all the benefits of complete separation. Why would we do this? Because being headless has many advantages but sometimes using a Javascript framework would either complicate or reduce the effectiveness of a site, e.g. SEO in e-commerce sites. By using Umbraco to do all the engineering; routing, state management, rendering etc, it makes this way of separating very simple to implement and understand. The result is a new and exciting way of working with Umbraco." The round table will also be discussing all the latest news about Umbraco 8 and there will be show and tell opportunities for all!
