CQCON, the CQ devel­oper event orga­nized by Unic, that will take place in Basel on June 19–20 2013, is open for reg­is­tra­tions and is ready to offer a great pre­view of the con­tent. I am excited to pro­vide here a sneak into some of the top­ics and to intro­duce some of the speak­ers that will take part to the event.

Reg­is­ter to CQCON from the con­fer­ence web­site.
Seats are lim­ited as this is shaped as a rather small event, to allow par­tic­i­pants to engage in a warm and col­lab­o­ra­tive environment.

Here is a small antic­i­pa­tion of the con­fer­ence topics:

Auto­mated self-testing and health check of live AEM instances
pre­sented by Bertrand Delac­re­taz, Senior Devel­oper at Adobe Basel and mem­ber of the Board of Direc­tors of the Apache Soft­ware Foundation.

Mobile First devel­op­ment with AEM made easy
pre­sented by Bruce Lefeb­vre, Com­puter Sci­en­tist at Adobe Ottawa

Scal­ing AEM
pre­sented by Michael Marth, Senior Engi­neer­ing Man­ager at Adobe Basel

And sev­eral other com­pelling ses­sions and speak­ers are already con­firmed and will be announced shortly in the final pro­gram of the con­fer­ence. Some of the top­ics include:

  • Secu­rity
  • Inte­gra­tion with back­end systems
  • Apache Sling com­po­nent filters
  • Inte­gra­tion with Phone­Gap
  • Inte­gra­tion testing
  • Effi­cient con­tent struc­tures and queries

CQCON is going to be a unique oppor­tu­nity to gather more expe­ri­ence on some key top­ics that make AEM devel­op­ment projects suc­cess­ful and to engage with AEM devel­op­ers as well as with some of the key devel­op­ers of the product.

Book your seat now and reg­is­ter for CQCON!

"Outside-In The Secret of the 21st century leading companies" details many case studies, success stories and more importantly the methods and techniques creating and sustaining Outside-In success. If you would like a complimentary copy of the book published in 2010 drop me a line at steve.towers@bpgroup.org or visit www.outsideinthesecret.com And oh by the way if you know the 'how' it is relatively easy (Go ask Apple, Google, Bestbuy, Zara, Disney, Emirates, Gilead, China Mobile etc.etc.) - Regards, Steve

Hank, I really enjoyed your post. You capture both the essence of the problem, inside-out metrics attempting to drive outside-in thinking, and the solution itself. It frames the point of reference for CEM completely in that it requires a change in mindset rather than a wholesale change in technology as some would advocate. Though-provoking stuff, and like Uzma it would be great if more companies acknowledged this and took note. Cheers, Jamie.


I think the last summary paragraph is brilliant.. and a lot of companies could do with reading this and taking note.
