Content Apps in Depth

With the release of Umbraco V8 a new concept called “Content Apps” was introduced. This talk will get you up and running with Content Apps.

Content Apps are great addition to your toolbox when it comes to providing a better experience. 

In this talk we will take you through

  • What they are intended for
  • Some great examples already available
  • How to build them
  • How to get the most out of them

Page Speed & how to improve it

Performance optimization but by sharing tips, tricks & ‘real life’ examples taken from projects instead of technical models. How to win a Google Hackathon? What does it take to bridge that final 20% in Google PageSpeed Insights? Is PageSpeed still the benchmark?

Jeroen Vantroyen (@Kosstamodjan), Senior .NET Developer bij The Reference, heeft het over performantie optimalisatie. Aan de hand van tips, tricks en waargebeurde voorbeelden uit klantenprojecten, maakt hij duidelijk hoe hij (en het team) de overwinning bij de Google Hackathon (https://www.the-reference.com/en/blog/jeroenvantroyen/2019/google-hackathon) verdiend heeft. Iedereen kent ongetwijfeld de best practices om een site performant genoeg te krijgen om een OK score te krijgen volgens Google PageSpeed Insights, maar wat vraagt het nu echt om die laatste 20% te overbruggen? Is het waar dat 80% van jouw effort als (frontend)developer kruipt in die laatste 20% van de Google rating. En is PageSpeed Insights nog steeds de benchmark? Jeroen bekijkt het pragmatisch en zorgt voor heldere tips die vrij platform onafhankelijk toegepast kunnen worden.

Umbraco at the Council of EU

During this talk, I'll explain how we decided to use Umbraco in the Council of EU, and how Umbraco went from a simple proof of concept to being used in multiple mission-critical systems. This is not a very technical session, I'll squeeze in some lessons learned developing Umbraco in such a big organization, with people coming from many different IT backgrounds.

Your journey into Open Source

At every festival, meetup and in a myriad of blog posts, we are reminded as Umbracians that our contributions are needed. Before I made my first pull request, I doubted I had anything really to offer. It was with help and structured support that I discovered my contributions were not just wanted, they were invaluable. 

Timed especially for the global Hacktoberfest event, this session I will provide support to people who find themselves wondering if they have anything to offer and where to begin. I will begin by showing them how to use the tools they’ll need to begin; including github, a git client, an IDE and more. We’ll look closely at the art of choosing an issue from the issue tracker, the conventions they’ll need to follow when submitting that pull request, the common pitfalls associated with getting the codebase up and running, the need for the careful documentation of that work and much much more. 

This interactive session will take a hands-on approach full of practical advice and actual tuition that will empower attendees to continue to contribute throughout their careers. Attendees can go on to attend Hackathons with confidence and build themselves a personal portfolio of work on github.
