uWestFest 2017

What is uWestFest?

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. This year is expected to have the biggest turnout so far with value packed Umbraco training courses, workshops and presentations. It’s impossible to get this much concentrated Umbraco knowlegde anywhere else on the continent. Anyone serious about Umbraco should come to this conference.”
Nik Wahlberg of Scandia, host of uWestFest

Who Should Come to uWestFest?

We designed each day with valuable material for clients who use Umbraco and vendors who build in Umbraco. You’ll find a good mix of technical, business and use case presentations. This year’s event is equally geared toward the technical and non-technical.

You will hear about new Umbraco 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.

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 of any genre. We’re especially interested in hearing more from the client perspective, which is also a new addition to this year’s line-up.
