What to Expect at uWestFest 2017: Denver

by Heather Alvis

The fourth annual uWestFest is returning Thursday, March 16, 2017, at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado. This year we are offering TWO packed days of use-case sharing, learning, and other networking activities with fellow Umbracians from North America and the rest of the world.

uWestFest is the North American conference designed for building a strong community of developers, project managers and marketing teams that use Umbraco.

"We are invigorated by the community's enthusiasm every year at uWestFest. Not only is it a time to grow our personal skills and friendships, but it is an opportunity for clients to truly grasp how Umbraco's strengths reach beyond the CMS itself."
- Nik Wahlberg of Scandia

You will hear about new roadmap features not shared anywhere else, see real-life client showcases for big brand implementations, learn about Umbraco Cloud, and witness innovative ways Umbraco is solving problems worldwide. With two tracks of presentations, this year’s event is equally geared toward the technical and non-technical. We designed each day with valuable material for clients who use Umbraco and vendors who build inUmbraco.

The Use Cases promise to be interesting to all segments of a team from marketing manager to developer. Expect to hear a multitude of lessons learned that will be immediately applicable to your upcoming projects.

Come join the community to learn from experts, meet new people, hang with friends, and be inspired and entertained.

Using the Umbraco REST API

This blog post goes beyond the setup and explanation and into how to actually interact with it, including what goes where. Helpful, we think.

Another great package from Skybrud, this image picker is a property editor and a grid editor for selecting a number of images for use in a slider, gallery or similar.

How to kill Umbraco with UrlRewrite.Net

UrlRewrite is a great (and necessary) tool, and we'd venture to guess most people don't have trouble with it. This usecase, however, is a cautionary tale of a few too many redirects.

This simple grid editor for Google Maps not only allows you to visualize your map in the Grid, but the API key can now be configured in the editor config. Handy.
