MuraCon 2018

The premier event for the Mura community just keeps getting better.

The 2018 conference schedule is filling up fast with informative, insightful presentations from some of the industry's most talented Digital Experience and Mura Platform experts, on two dedicated tracks spanning two full days.

In addition to new sessions from some of the Mura community's most popular presenters, we have expanded the DX offering from last year's one-day mini-conference to a full two-day track of its own, showcasing the role content plays in delivering valuable digital experiences. From marketing and strategy to programming and application architecture, to personal brand storytelling, MuraCon offers something for everyone!

Featured speakers

Day 1

Day one will open with a keynote from business storytelling master Park Howell, along with insights on blueriver's own brand story presented by Sean Schroeder, and a word from Docker Captain Bret Fisher about the ways that Docker is changing the face of IT, followed by two jam-packed tracks full of great sessions like:

  • Rest, Swagger and OAuth with Mura with Matt Levine (blueriver)
  • Surviving a Marketing Technology Implementation: How to Avoid Common Pitfalls with Peg Miller (B2B Marketing Academy)
  • Themes and Modules in Mura 7.1 with Steve Withington (blueriver)
  • B2B Content Personalization Case Study with Sean Schroeder (blueriver) & Mackenzie Pedroza (Intuit)

Day 2

Bret and Park will join us again on day two with three-hour "Intro to Docker" and "Personal Brand Story" workshops, respectively, complemented by an array of other useful and important sessions from a host of marketing and Mura development professionals, such as: 

  • Mura AMP'ed Up!  with Paul Denato (blueriver)
  • Automated Testing Strategies with Nick Sollecito (Scientific American)
  • Let's Talk About Sketch: Libraries & Design Systems with Scott Massengale (blueriver)
