So not sure exactly who’s idea it was, but it turned out to be a great one to combine the Milwaukee Sitecore Meetup with the Chicago Sitecore meetup. No Bears vs Packers football was discussed, just Sitecore. There must have been over 30 attendees. Coveo did the first presentation and I was honored to be part of the second presentation of Sitecore Symposium attendees. I can’t wait for the next one. So here is the recap in pictures.
I live in the far west suburbs of Chicago so driving to Kenosha, Wisconsin was about the same time as it took me to get to the Chicago meetups. I enjoyed my view of the country roads and put on some classic hard rock music.
I arrived at the venue. I have never been to the Brat Stop, but I may have to come back for a visit.
Upon arrival it was great to start meeting others in person and seeing people again that I have met at the Symposium, the Chicago meetups and even one of my co-workers in person.
Renee from American Eagle and Isabel from Coveo.
My co-worker Chad from Paragon and Joe from GeekHive.
Like I said a sizable number of attendees.
Look at that food. Not bad for not being Chicago pizza.
I always love Sitecore freebies. I do love Sitecore like the pin says.
So let’s get down to the meetup itself. It first started with all the sponsors telling a little about the company they work for. I talked about Paragon and what we did. Hopefully what I was saying made sense. I am a developer, but I always try and do my best to sell.
Coveo then did a presentation. Coveo has been a huge part of Sitecore searching/marketing and they always impress me. I can’t wait to do another project with their tools.
Now it was time for the Sitecore Symposium panel.
We all gave our best insights and reported things we learned and brought up a lot of subjects. Mark and the audience had some great questions. This was so much fun.
So when is the next one? Not sure, but this one was so much fun. Maybe we can discuss Bears vs Packers at the next one?
