New Umbraco.TV Crew
Umbraco.TV is well-known as the hub for Umbraco HQ produced video tutorials, teaching developers, implementers and editors how to use Umbraco. Here you find step-by-step tutorial videos that teaches you best practises whether that’s setting up a site from scratch or using a features in the right way, so you get the most out of it.
Umbraco keeps developing, so, of course, Umbraco TV has to as well. This is why we are super excited to announce these new initiatives that’ll help make it simpler for you to stay updated on how to use Umbraco in the best way, right from your own screen:
The new crew
As I mentioned, we are a total of three people making up this new Umbraco.TV crew. We’re all part of SWAT (Umbraco HQ Support Warriors And Troubleshooters) which means that we have a bunch of experience with Umbraco but which also means that you might already know us from the Umbraco support channels.
Anyways, let’s do a short introduction:
First up we have Gabriel.
You probably recognize him, as he’s also doing weekly webinars about both Umbraco Cloud and the Umbraco CMS. He’s also doing the online “Extending the backoffice” training course, which means he’s a perfect addition to the Umbraco.TV team, as he has a lot of knowledge about best practises in the Umbraco backoffice.
Next up is Morten.
He’s one of the newest additions to the SWAT team. But “new” definitely doesn’t mean inexperienced. Being a very technical minded person (yes, that's the politically correct way to say nerd - although we see nerd as a compliment!), you can look forward to videos from Morten where he dives into the more code-heavy side of the Umbraco CMS.
Finally there’s me, Sofie.
Some would say I’m an Umbraco Cloud expert, and since I’m already doing documentation about the Cloud, it only makes sense that I do some videos about it as well, right? We definitely think so!
That’s the crew! A great mix of people with experience in different aspects of Umbraco.
Don't worry, we know what we're doing - just wait and see 😉
All the kids are using it …
… the Umbraco community is using it - now Umbraco is finally using it! That’s right!
Umbraco is finally joining the 21st century by setting up an official Youtube channel 👏
Let me just start by saying that this does not mean that we are replacing Umbraco.TV.
On the contrary!
We will keep creating and updating content about the Umbraco CMS and Forms for Umbraco.TV while we will use the Youtube channel to focus on Umbraco Cloud.
Now, what does that mean exactly? 🤔
This means that we are going to make a bunch of short videos for the Youtube channel to show how you can use the various features of Umbraco Cloud and the Umbraco Cloud Portal. This will make it easier to get started using Umbraco Cloud and to learn the workflow.
We will also be making guides on how to work with Umbraco Cloud projects as well as troubleshooting guides and videos about best practices.
We’re already LIVE! 📺
Feeling hyped yet? Well, head over to the Umbraco YouTube Channel and have a look at our first 6 videos. For this big launch day we’ve made the following ‘How to’s’ available for you:
- How to upgrade your Umbraco Cloud project to a new minor version of Umbraco
- How to add an additional environment to your Umbraco Cloud project
- How to add additional team members to your Umbraco Cloud Project
- How to setup an Umbraco Cloud Trial project
- How to rename an Umbraco Cloud project
- How to add a technical contact to your Umbraco Cloud Project
… and there’s much more to come, so stay tuned! Or as a true youtuber would say: “remember to subscribe to our channel!”
The new Umbraco Youtube Channel is not only for tutorials and guides about our product though. We’ll also be uploading other useful and interesting Umbraco material like the Umbraco Cloud Testimonials Playlist which you can already find on there.
Enough said! Now go watch the brand new videos. We hope you are going to find them useful - perhaps you’ll even learn something new 😉?

Sofie's Docs Diary: Codegarden 2018 docs wrap-up
Time flies. It’s already almost a month ago we all attended Codegarden 18 - what a week! Codegarden 18 was really a fantastic year for the Umbraco Documentation. We got a ton of feedback during the week and even more so when we had the Open Space session about how we should work with the Umbraco Documentation going forward. There is so much I want to share with you, so let’s get this show on the road:
