Sitecore Symposium 2019
This week I attended Sitecore Symposium for the first time. The conference was in Orlando and the weather was excellent. I'm freezing now because it was 90 degrees yesterday and now that I'm back in Indiana, it's 30 degrees outside.
The sessions were organized into several tracks and each day had special keynote speakers. I attended mostly sessions with DevOps or automation topics. There were also sessions on marketing, AI, eCommerce, and everything to do with Sitecore.
My role at the agency is to support over a dozen different brands so anything that makes my daily tasks easier is great. We also need to be ready to deploy features almost daily with a high degree of quality. Sitecore has matured into a pretty cool system.
The speakers that I saw were excellent. I gave everyone 5 stars except for one, that was 4 out of 5 stars. The agenda was a good mix of Sitecore employees, partners, industry experts and consultants. Some of the Sitecore employees would even talk about things that were unofficial or in the works with no official release date yet. There is some really cool stuff coming in 2020.
