02 October: DF20 a Virtual Umbraco Event
On the 2nd of October the team behind DUUGfest will organize a free online event: DF20 a Virtual Umbraco Experience. Although organized by the Dutch Umbraco User Group, this event is entirely in English and will span over 12 hours! The Umbraco Community from all around the world will be able to watch live content in their timezone.
DF20 will be a mix of virtual and live-studio sessions including expert round-table sessions around various Umbraco subjects. Our studio-venue allows for a very limited live audience and presenters. The main focus of this event is development with Umbraco. Keynotes will be by none other than Scott Hanselman (Coder, Blogger, Teacher, Speaker, Author at Microsoft) and, of course, Umbraco Founder Niels Hartvig. The program will start with various sessions by speakers from the Umbraco or .NET community, giving you insights in everything Umbraco and surrounding Umbraco development.
Next to the community sessions there will be round-table sessions. These sessions will be hosted at our studio location and will feature various guests. Each round-table will have at least one colleague from HQ attending, having a discussion with a person at the table and other up to 2 virtual guests at the same time.
As an online attendee of the event you are able to ask questions in the chat and have the panel answer or discuss them. The round-table talks are moderated by a host, who will keep the discussion going and civilized.
The three round table sessions are:
This panel will discuss the current state of the open-source Umbraco CMS, what is going well, what is in the (near) future (.Net Core!), but also the influence of Umbraco Uno and Umbraco Heartcore on our open-source offering.
We have seen more commercial offerings in the last 12 months than ever before. Is Umbraco the right fit for your commercial offering going forward? What about all the open-source and free offerings? How can we improve the Umbraco ecosystem together?
2020 has been an interesting year for Umbraco Community, with lots of positive things happening, but also there was COVID-19 which made it quite tough all around the world to be around people, meetup or host events. What is the role of the community in the open-source world of Umbraco? Does it make sense as an agency to invest in the Umbraco community?
After the keynotes and round-tables there will be another round of community sessions and a time where our US audience can comfortably join in.
