This week, 26th of February, we organized the BUUG event in the offices from the Reference in Ghent. We had plenty of reasons to put in some extra effort:
- Last week Umbraco won the Future Unicorn Awards from Digital Europe as a high potential company
- A few hours before kicking off the BUUG meetup, Umbraco version 8 was released.
After a short introduction to the 26 attendees, Jeroen Vantroyen kicked off by presenting insights on performance tweaking an Umbraco website. Last month he joined a Google hackathon and was able to drastically improve the performance. Starting with the basics he quickly moved to the more advanced topics, combined with do’s and don’ts. The result of all his effort? An increase of 429% in performance score. Impressive!
- Infinite editing is a very nice feature for the system. Umbraco becomes even more user friendly.
- Language variants. Ideal for multi-country/multilingual sites
- The use of content apps, in order to extend Umbraco even further
- No more tabs in the interface ;-)
- And many, many more …
To close up, time for drinks, pizza and catching up with the community. See you next time!
