Sitecore Symposium 2017 is here!!

With Sitecore Symposium 2017 about to kick off, the excitement is building. Everyone and anyone that has ever touched Sitecore knows about the Symposium.  If you haven’t then you are probably only starting out or have recently been introduced to Sitecore.

So whats the big deal? You might ask!!

Well, it’s a probably a bit like what the Oscars are to the Film industry except instead of red carpet we have a red logo that’s instantaneously recognizable. You won’t see any of Hollywood’s celebrities here either… Erm, actually that’s not entirely true!! This year we will be joined by Mark Hamill aka Luke Skywalker who will be sharing an insight on playing his famous Star Wars character, and more recently the Joker, also his career as a voice actor and how he managed to establish a whopping 2 million followers on social media.  Okay, so Mark may be the exception if that are other celebs I don’t think you’ll be that interested!! That’s because the Symposium attracts people in a completely different league.  These are some of the greatest minds and thinkers in business, marketing, and the technology industry today.

The customer is currently running Sitecore 8.1 update 3 (rev. 160519).  So I headed over to Developer Portal Downloads to locate a compatible version of Sitecore Print Experience Manager (PXM):
