This meetup was a big honor for me. I got to present for the first time ever at a public Sitecore meetup. I was nervous going into it for several weeks, but I did my best to prepare. Special thanks go to Joe Ouimet and Derek Dysart for giving me the opportunity to present and putting the meetup together. Also for Paragon Consulting for the awesome food and drinks and Layer One Media for hosting.
I did my presentation on the Sitecore Data Exchange Framework. My goal was to show the demo of my Reddit feed process and get others thinking about how they could use the DEF. I believe I accomplished that and hopefully I wasn’t too confusing. My code and marketplace module are out there so they can be used as a starting point. Also I will probably do an updated DEF blog series for the latest version.
So here we are in tweets and pictures for presentation 1:

Presentation 2 had me excited. Anything that involves Alexa and Sitecore I am interested in. The topic was “Expanding the reach of your Sitecore Content with Voice-Activated Assistants”. It was presented by Benjamin Adamski and Jeroen de Groot. They did a fantastic job explaining all the benefits and where things are headed.
Well Milwaukee it has been great. I hope to make the next one.
