DNN Summit 2017 Denver was a successful event. The organizing team has received a lot of positive feedback from conference attendees, sponsors, and speakers via the DNN Summit app, emails, and word of mouth. Now that we’ve all had time to get back and regroup we’d like to share a brief recap with everyone…
One of the sometimes frustrating or stressful parts of going somewhere new is simply finding where you need to be! In hopes of lessening potential frustration and stress we present this blog to DNN Summit attendees with simple instructions on how to get to the DNN Summit hotel from the airport.
DNN Summit 2017 Denver is going to have some great giveaways thanks to the generosity of some really creative DNN Community Members. Ryan Moore of Moore Creative Company and the Southern Fried DNN user group continue to support DNN Community based conferences in multiple ways. This year, along with volunteering on the DNN Summit Committee and assisting at the event, Ryan’s team has done some creative things that attendees will see one of which is having created the first official DNN Summit award!
We are excited to announce that the official DNN Summit Denver 2017 mobile app is available for download in both Google Play & the Apple App Store. In this blog entry we’ll discuss some of the current features, features still to come, and benefits of the app.
Start out DNN Summit with the DNN Summit 2017 code-a-thon, a day-long opportunity to work on improving the open source DNN Platform. If you have ideas on what could make DNN even better then this is just the event for you!
After DNN Summit the community will head west to the mountains in Winter Park for a few days of skiing, snowmobiling, and outdoor fun. We’ve got some great prices on packages for the slopes, but time is running out. If you plan on attending this portion of the conference you should book ASAP.
This year the community has a new element to expect at the conference. In the past there’s always been conference attendees saying things that follow the same common thread… remarks such as “I got a lot of value simply from conversations with others while at the conference”, “I wish there was a session dedicated to running a DNN business”, or “I wish there was just an open discussion session where anyone could ask questions related to leveraging DNN in a business”. If you were one of those people then you will be happy to see the addition of the “Business Roundtable” session at DNN Summit!
If you're looking to learn more about DNN the best way is to attend DNN Summit's pre-conference DNN training. We've got some of the most well known and respected subject matter experts in the DNN Community as instructors and you'll be sure to leave with tons of knowledge, tips, & tricks!
Some of the most creative and unique sessions of conferences past have been the “Ignite Sessions”. The Ignite concept consists of 20 PowerPoint slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds forcing speakers to be succinct. Today we announce the call for Ignite Speakers!
After having the call for speakers out for over a month, numerous (awesome) submissions were received, making speaker selections feel like summiting a mountain. No pain, no gain. It’s going to be a great conference!
Some members of the DNN Summit Leadership Team recently had an interview with Aderson Oliveira of DNN Hero. Aderson has posted the interview to YouTube and allowed us to share around. Catch some inside scoop about DNN Summit from the crew. Will Mitchel Sellers fly his airplane to DNN Summit? You’ll have to watch the video to find out. Thanks again to Aderson and DNN Hero for having us!
There are many perks, benefits, and reasons for attending a DNN Summit. Beyond the knowledge and friendships gained there are always more reasons to attend! With this year’s Summit being held in Denver we’ve really got some nice experiences in store for summit attendees with one of them being “DNN on the Slopes”
The community is what makes DNN awesome and the community is what will make DNN Summit awesome too! That's right, if you're reading this, we encourage you to speak. All conferences need presenters and DNN Summit is no different. So, get your session abstracts submitted, and start learning how to ski.
As technologists we are accustomed to change. Change happens all around us every day. From hardware to software, to coding languages, techniques and patterns, the pace of change is rapid. At this point in time we find ourselves on the brink of more change, but this change is not so much in code or hardware, but rather in organization and identity.
