We want a corporate Umbraco platform! Errr.. Sure!

Code Garden 2015 our-codegarden-2015
We want to take you on a journey through our project of consolidating a scattered landscape of dozens of Umbraco websites with different Umbraco versions, with each it's own customization to one multilingual Corporate Marketing platform.

To set up such a holy grail is not easy, due to the many stakeholders within the company such as marketing, several business units, IT operations, design agencies, with each their our opinion, concerns and requirements. Keeping all those parties happy requires a lot of deliberations.

Our main goal was organizing a long term development process that fully supports html-unfamiliar content editors who can quickly setup new websites according the needs of their business unit. Websites that all have a personal look and feel while sharing a corporate branding.

Creating a generic Umbraco platform meant we designed a (pre-grid) widget system to facillitate a flexible page setup while being consistent with the corporate UX guidelines. On a broader level we introduced content classification, instead of many content types, in combination with a Solr integration. This way each website can organize it's own page types (without any IT dependency) supported by an advanced faceted search.

With this platform in place screaming to reap all its possibilities we're now looking at a roadmap that will quickly introduce new features like usage of The Grid, a corporate wide search,...

Selling Umbraco

Code Garden 2015 our-codegarden-2015
We all have to “sell Umbraco”. The CMS itself might be free of charge, but convincing stakeholders to go with Umbraco can be daunting. After all, CMS Matrix lists some 1289 systems to choose from.

As the technical lead of a digital agency, I have “sold Umbraco” more times than I can remember. I have sold it to small companies and multinationals, IT and Marketing Directors, for projects of all shapes and sizes.

We, the Umbraco community, have a vested interest in Umbraco doing well. In this session I want to offer practical tips and share lessons learnt to help spread the word far and wide.

A good content editing experience is as important as a good working website. In this session I will show you how to make the content editing workflow better resulting in happier editors.

I will show some commonly used practices in setting up the backoffice. But more importantly I will show how you can improve them to create a better editor experience.

This will all be done with existing property editors. So no need for angular coding.
Contributing to the core

Code Garden 2015 our-codegarden-2015
One of the best things about Umbraco is that it's open source and you can contribute features and fixes. It's addictive.

Obviously, making a contribution is not only great for your dopamine levels but it is also great for the Umbraco project. There's plenty of things that the core team can use a little help on, making the project better for everyone.

Sebastiaan and Chriztian will tell you all about how you can contribute to the core of Umbraco, even if you don't have Visual Studio installed at all.

They will cover different ways to contribute, how to work with git and github, what if you have a merge conflict and many more topics.

There will be plenty of examples and Seb and Chriztian will inspire you to then join them in the hack room where they will be available for the rest of the afternoon to help you submit your first (and second, and third..) contribution.
Building a global platform to deliver human rights change for Amnesty International

Code Garden 2015 our-codegarden-2015
Code Computerlove recently worked with charity Amnesty International to totally redevelop their global website. It was a particularly exciting project creating a website that could contribute to human rights change at an international level, whilst delivering a solution that could support the organisation on its journey towards digital transformation.

In this session, we’ll be discussing how and why we chose Umbraco to help us meet Amnesty’s requirements and how we turned the first development stage of the project round in the space of just 12 weeks.

Topics include:

- Our approach to website instance scaling using Azure and some of the lessons we learned about how best to implement Umbraco on this platform.
- Our approach to multi-lingual content. The Amnesty site needed to be fully multi-lingual in 4 languages including Arabic with certain content in selected languages. We delivered a 1-to-1 multilingual site using the Vorto package.
- How we delivered a suite of flexible templates and components to support Amnesty’s powerful photo-journalism and campaigning. We needed to develop a creative solution that would do justice to Amnesty’ amazing content across device and bandwidth. Allowing editors around the globe to be able to tell the story of what’s happening on the ground at the click of a button.
Using ReactJS with Umbraco

Code Garden 2015 our-codegarden-2015
Its all been about AngularJS of late, but with the Public Relations disaster that was the announcement of AngularJS v2 another new kid on the block got a look in at Offroadcode HQ.

ReactJS is the javascript templating library that is powering most of Facebook, Instagram and Yahoo mail. One of its main selling points is its ease to understand for new developers and ease of understanding existing React projects for those developers coming in your wake.

We've been pushing it and using it and really, really like it. Find out what it is, why its good and how we've found using it.

Beyond the web

Code Garden 2015 our-codegarden-2015
We all use Umbraco as a website Content Management System. We use it to manage content in various formats and we deliver beautifully crafted HTML templates that our users view through a web browser. Furthermore we have a great UI, a hierarchal data structure and the ability to deliver the output from our templates in a super snappy fashion.

Now let’s just step back a bit. The only tie-in we have to the "world wide web" is that the templates we deliver have a content-type set to "TEXT/HTML" - and we can change this quite easily! So why restrict Umbraco to just website content delivery?

What if we thought of our users as “clients” (as in a 'client / server’) and not just people sat in front of computers and mobile devices, but servers, proxies and services too.
This talk explores the use of Umbraco as a content management system, but not just as a system to manage websites - we explore how we can use it to manage content that powers telecommunications systems, services and apps, with some fun demo’s along the way.
