Picking Your Perfect Post-Conference Workshop 

Our post-conference workshops are crash courses designed to take you on a journey from the basics of each topic to a comprehensive understanding once the class ends. Consult our overview of what each workshop will focus on, so you can select the right one that suits your goals. 

Deconstructing DXP: Rethink Content, Data and Experience

Perfect for marketers, business leaders, digital strategists or technical architects interested in reimagining content 

How can marketers and digital strategists deliver experiences that are both consistent and individualized across multiple channels? While traditional marketing tools lump content, data and user display in a single bucket, the future of digital experience is all about learning to create multilayered journeys that deliver content in context.

In this full-day session, learn how to dig through all your data and uncover insights you’ll actually use. You’ll see the best practices for how to model content, segment user data and execute experiences that feel relevant and revolutionary.

With new releases and features constantly appearing on the scene, it can be easy to feel like you’re just out of date. Thankfully, this session will put you ahead of the curve by filling you in on exactly what you can do to future-proof your development teams and processes. 

And for developers and technical architects curious (or nervous) about the upcoming release of Drupal 9, we’ll be providing a handy checklist showing you exactly how to prepare your Drupal 8 sites for the switch to Drupal 9.
