SUGCON Global 2020

With in-person SUGCON events cancelled all across the world due to the pandemic, the Sitecore community decided to hold a global SUGCON online. This was a great initiative and being global made it open to everyone – either as a presenter or an attendee – without the need for travel.

There was a huge amount of quality content delivered and all available online for free! You can see the videos on YouTube. I’d be hard pressed to pick the best (IMO), but the presentations that had most relevance for me were from Vincent Lui, Alastair Deneys, @sitecorey, Alex Shyba, and the highly entertaining JSS/SXA shootout from Mark van Aalst and Anastacia Flynn, but there are many other good ones in there too. Oh and Jax Baxter’s personalisation one. In fact just watch them all and decide for yourself.

I was also fortunate enough to have the opportunity to present alongside these great presenters, and delivered an updated version of the Marketing Automation customisation session that I took to Sitecore Symposium in Orlando last year: Automate all the things!

The slides are available here.
Kudos and thanks to the organisers who put a massive amount of effort into this event.
