Join us in San Diego, California for two days of technical training with Cascade CMS Developers, Engineers, and Trainers. This is a unique opportunity to learn hands-on from the people that built the product and work in the app on a daily basis. There's no one better to share best-practice techniques to improve your Cascade CMS implementation.


Where You’ll Be

For the second stop on the Cascade CMS Regional Training Conference tour, we’re heading to MicroTek Training & Meeting Rooms in San Diego, a city known for its surf, craft beer, Mexican cuisine, world-famous zoo, and vibrant art scene.

MicroTek San Diego is a modern meeting space in the heart of San Diego, with beautiful city views. They are located just blocks from the bay and minutes from the San Diego Zoo.

What You’ll Learn

With two tracks to choose from, you’ll hear content that’s aligned with your current skill set and needs.

Track One - Advanced Velocity & Web Services

On day one, a Hannon Hill team member will cover advanced Velocity tools and tactics. Topics will include when and how to use the Query tool, string replacements, arrays, node structure versus objects, and Velocity best practices.  On day two, we will utilize PHP to introduce users to the Cascade CMS web services API.

Track Two - Cascade CMS Boot Camp (System Administrator Training)

Track Two is for developers and system administrators who never went through formal training with the Hannon Hill team. It’s also for long-term users who need a refresher on best practices. You will learn how to manage Users and Groups, create content, and approve change through Workflow. Then, you will build on that knowledge and learn how to integrate the fundamental assets needed to take full advantage of the product.

What to Expect

Two days of workshop-like sessions will run from 9:00am - 5:00pm on Tuesday, October 29 and Wednesday, October 30. We will provide breakfast, lunch, snacks, drinks, and sufficient break time.

In addition to the two days of hands-on learning with our team, you’ll have plenty of time to network with colleagues and have fun. We will host a social event on the evening of October 29. We’ll share drinks, food, and conversation in a more laid-back setting.
