The Kentico Developer Roadshow is heading to Chicago and Denver!


After having some great events in Toronto and Boston, the 2015 Kentico Developer Roadshow will keep on rolling to Chicago and Denver in August! In this article, I will be detailing the dates and times for the next two events. Hope to see you there!

The first two KDR events were big successes, bringing lots of good information to the Toronto and Boston development communities. As soon as I announced these cities, I was immediately hit with several requests for more cities across the US. Because we have such a large development community in the areas, I am excited to announce that we will be bringing the KDR to Chicago and Denver in August 2015!

The Details (I totally copied this from the last blog)

Following the same format as before, the events will be a 1-2 hour presentation where I will discuss and demonstrate some advanced development techniques and topics. I will use the voting features in EventBrite to allow the audience to decide the topic. The meetings will be held in the evening (6 PM-8 PM) at a central location to make it as easy as possible. Kentico will supply the food, drinks, and speaker (me) so all you will need to do is show up! 

The format for the event is a presentation with discussion. Everyone is ecnouraged to particapte and discusss their thoughts, problems, and challenges. The event will be very casual and comfortable (i.e. the guy from Florida will be in shorts). And who knows, there may even be a giveaway or two.

For the topics, there is a voting option during the registration process. Be sure to vote for you favorite topic! (Hint: The Performance & Scalability presentation in the first round was a big hit and everyone learned some great tips for improving their sites!)

  • Kentico & Azure
  • E-commerce Customization
  • Performance / Scalability
  • Web Farms / Development Scenarios
  • Kentico 9 Roadmap

Dates / Locations
We have selected venues central to each city to make it easy as possible for partners to attend. With the events being in the evening (6PM-8PM), it shouldn't conflict too much with normal business hours. 

While the event is free, it will help us to plan the event if attendees register beforehand. Use the links below to let us know you will be there. I am planning on 30-40 at each location, however, having more than 40 at the event means a lot of developers are interested, which is a very good thing! And remember to vote for your favorite topic during registration!

Hello. I am a Technical Evangelist here at Kentico and will be helping the technical community by providing guidance and best practices for all areas of the product. I might also do some karaoke. We'll see how the night goes...

I was close to reporting that Steelers comment as abuse and I will look into the driving of interest.

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for the suggestion! We are still looking into more cities for later this year / Q1 2016. I will definitely keep Cleveland in mind and see if we have other interest from there. Basically, we are trying to hit cities with lots of partners who can make a user group in the area to keep the conversations going. I know we have 8-10 partners in the Cleveland area so if you want to drive some interest there that would certainly help us in our planning!

Although, you may not want me to come when you learn how big of a Steelers fan I am! :)

Brian, would love one in Cleveland. We are, a Gold Partner with a bunch of developers and a great network of peers that would be interested. What do we need to make this happen?

Thank you.
