This will be a double header with MVP's Sebastian Winter & Justin Laster

You will NOT want to miss this meeting in Denver if you work in any capacity with Sitecore as your chosen CMS OR if you have an interest in SXA with SItecore. Any and all are welcome as we will be informing the community on SXA basics, best practices, pitfalls, and recommendations.

During this time we will demo out the latest from the SXA Habitat Demo site on Sitecore 9.1, which can be picked up here:

SPEAKERS:

Sebastian Winter is a Sitecore MVP and Solutions Architect at METRONOM Germany with a 17 year experience in IT. He joined the Sitecore Community in 2014 and was blown away by the fact how much everyone helps each other, that as soon as Sebastian was able to, he started on Blogs and also having presentation on community Meetings and Symposium to give back and contribute to what helped him so much on getting started. As Sebastian is involved with implementing a larger scale Sitecore installation now being reimplemented using SXA these are the main areas where you can find him. If he’s not doing Sitecore, he’s spending time with his family, organizing a music festival and or touring with his punk rock band.
