Learn the ropes of Craft 3 with Ryan Irelan! Ryan runs Mijingo, where he produces video courses on Craft and other web technologies. We’ll be learning about some of the new templating and configuration features in Craft 3, plus walk through the steps to update an existing Craft 2 site to it.
Working on a new plugin for Craft 3, or have a Craft 2 plugin that needs to be ported? The Craft CMS dev team will be here all day, helping developers get their plugins ready for the upcoming Craft 3 Plugin Store.
Brandon will kick off the conference with some exciting announcements.
As a developer, you know how to build structured content, understand relational databases, and make all the pieces come to life. But do you know where it comes from, what it's meant to do, and how authors will interact with it? In this session, we'll go from ideation to launching a site that is useful and usable. Learn what content strategy brings to the process and the questions developers need to ask for a CMS to fully support its content. Leave knowing you can build a system that allows non-technical people to effectively manage content.
Take a technical look at the various considerations and configurations needed to create a RESTful API with Craft 3. We’ll cover resource structure, authentication, authorization, data transformation and much more. Whether you’re building a single page app or require external integrations, creating a REST API with Craft 3 is easier than you think.
We may not all be PHP wizards, but writing a simple Plugin is a vital skill in Craft land. We'll cover how to create your first Plugin and how to do some of the small stuff: creating a Twig filter, storing settings (like API keys and secrets), and creating Plugin functionality within the Craft admin.
You've worked hard to design a beautiful website for your client. Now, learn how to utilize SEO best practices to ensure that its viewed by potential customers. We'll discuss what SEO looks like in 2017, and how to implement it using Craft as an SEO management tool. From basic meta tags, sitemaps and OpenGraph to the more esoteric JSON-LD structured data, A/B split testing and GoogleBot crawl budgets, we've got you covered.
Adding collaborators can mean adding complexity — but it doesn’t have to! This session will focus on strategies and tools for working on a Craft project with multiple contributors. From storing settings in version control to effective client-onboarding, I'll share approaches to small-team collaboration that actually work (and some that don't), using lessons learned during the development of the Yale Environment 360 site as our test-case.
Craft makes building highly customizable marketing sites a breeze. I’ll show you some of my most used Twig features, config settings and more. You’ll learn how to add and modify table columns on entry listings and implement custom redactor formatting. We’ll also dive into how I use matrices as content builders and organize images in an agency setting.
The web is under threat. Information and attention is consolidating under the centralized platforms of our social media overlords. Lucky for us, we have our own weapon to fight back with.

Let's look at how to turn our trusty publishing tool into an art directing machine.
