Back in 2014 the very first uWestFest conference (festival in Umbraco-speak) was launched. At the time it was organized by Mindfly, which later was acquired by Scandia, and debuted in Las Vegas at the Excalibur. Lots of work was done by Erica Quessenberry and team to get it off the ground, and it was a huge success.
The first year was followed by en event in Orlando at Disney in 2015, followed in 2016 by a very successful event in San Diego at the University campus (gorgeous spot and city), and finally in Denver this year for our very first 2-day event (and of course some skiing and snowmobiling!).
It;s an honor to be trusted with the responsibility to organize and host this event. It's a lot of work, but is rewarding when we see the attendees from both the Umbraco community and business come together, share ideas, meet new people, and have a great time in the process.
Thank you, Umbraco, for recognizing the hard work we've been putting in over the years to do this. It means a lot!
