I was reviewing my travel schedule today and realized that I will be on the road a LOT in the next 2 months. Conference season is upon us and I would like to take the opportunity to highlight some of the high profile events I will be attending where I will be evangelizing and spreading the word about DotNetNuke.
First stop is DotNetNuke OpenForce Europe, which will be held Monday, October 25th and Tuesday, October 26th in The Netherlands. This is the fourth year that the Software Development Network has included dedicated tracks for DotNetNuke and I am honored to be presenting the keynote once again. This year will be the first time our CEO, Navin Nagiah, will be attending DotNetNuke OpenForce Europe. It will give him the opportunity to meet many of our valued European partners in person. In fact, we will be attending a gathering of the DotNetNuke European Professionals in the afternoon of Sunday, October 24th.
Immediately following OpenForce Europe, I will travel to DotNetNuke Connections, our flagship professional conference co-located with DevConnections. DotNetNuke Connections will be held from November 2-4 at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. I will be presenting the keynote and have invited a number of high profile partners to join me on stage to share their experiences with the platform. DevConnections includes an expansive Exhibitors area where vendors from the broader Microsoft ecosystem can showcase their products and services ( DotNetNuke Corporation has a booth, as do a variety of the high profile vendors from the DotNetNuke ecosystem ). A pre-conference workshop is also available on November 1st led by our very own Director of Training, Chris Hammond.
After DotNetNuke Connections, I get a short break before heading off to KM World 2010 from November 16-18 in Washington, D.C. KM World is a Content Management conference focused on the essential pieces of the information engine that power your enterprise—including knowledge creation, publishing, sharing, finding, mining, reuse and more, which work together to enable business problem-solving, innovation, and achievement. My session is on November 18th from 3:00-3:45 PM and focuses on Open Source Content Management. I will be co-presenting with Aaron Levie, CEO of Box.Net.
My next stop will be the The Gilbane Conference on December 1-2 in Boston, Massachusetts. The Gilbane Conference is an Enterprise and Web Content Management Conference which has 4 tracks covering Customers & Engagement, Colleagues and Collaboration, Content Technology, and Content Publishing. I will be presenting a session on the characteristics an enterprise should look for in an open source content management system. This is the same session I presented at Gilbane San Francisco earlier this spring ( the session was so well received I was invited to share it again ). I will be co-presenting with Kian T. Gould, CEO of AOE Media.
Very busy times indeed… and great visibility for DotNetNuke!
