We are pleased to announce that Jon Upchurch, Senior Consultant & Sitecore MVP at Paragon has been chosen to present at the 2014 Sitecore Symposium, this coming September. Upchurch will be presenting a session with Kerry Bellerose, Sitecore VP, Strategic Platform Management titled: Get with the experience! Information Architecture to unlock the full potential of the Experience Editor and Experience Marketing. 

The 2014 Sitecore Symposium Las Vegas, organized by Sitecore will take place from September 8th to the 10th at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Designed for developers and marketers, the event offers two intensive days of strategic insight, technical education, product roadmaps, and networking. Attendees will learn how to deliver unique, personalized, and measurable high-impact experiences across every touch point—all through a single, connected platform, Sitecore.

Upchurch’s session, which will be presented to over 300 attendees will provide insightful best practices for separating content from presentation, allowing you to free your content from the “tyranny of the page”!  Learn how to optimize the editing experience for your content authors, free your marketing users to fully leverage Sitecore’s Experience Marketing, and make development a dream for your developers.  “I’m looking forward to participating in such a highly-anticipated event in the Sitecore community! It’s an honor being chosen to co-present with, Kerry Bellerose, Sitecore VP, Strategic Platform Management,” Upchurch says.

Paragon Consulting will be well represented this year at the Sitecore Symposium.  In addition to Upchurch’s presentation, Paragon is also an Engagement Sponsor as well as host of our own separate happy hour networking event on night two of the Symposium, September 9 from 5:00–7:00 pm. Brent McLean & Josh Jenkins, Sitecore MVPs  among other Paragon employee’s will be the attending the Sitecore Symposium this fall.
