The first ever StripeCon Asia-Pacific is shaping up to be an awesome event with talks and speakers confirmed today. This will be a perfect conference for developers and digital business leaders to get informed and inspired on Digital Transformation and open source innovation.
The one-day event will feature keynote speaker Sam Minnée, CEO & Co-founder of SilverStripe. Sam will combine practical advice and crystal-ball gazing to help you understand Digital Transformation and how you can apply the concept to improve digital experiences for your users. Bene Anderson and Paul Murray from NZ Department of Internal Affairs will discuss common challenges facing public sector digital projects and how they overcome these challenges to support New Zealand Government organisations. They will also talk about how the Common Web Platform and open source are making it easier to deliver better online experiences. On the topic of Digital Transformation, Simon Erkelens, Developer of SilverStripe, will show you how it can transform your work as developer — both from an end-user experience, user friendliness and usability, as well as the security issues that they need to be aware of.
For those that are eager to hear about technical developments, there will be a talk on “the future of SilverStripe”, delivered by Ingo Schommer, Solutions Architect of SilverStripe. Ingo will bring you up to speed with SilverStripe 4, as well as all the ins and outs of our favourite framework. Colin Westacott, Director of Strategic Partnerships of Ephox Corporation will talk about Ephox Cognitive — an advanced new editing environment that combines the power of the world's most advanced editor with the power of cognitive computing.
A few case studies will also be shared. Stevie Mayhew, CTO of Little Giant, will take you through a “userless experience” that looks beyond users’ direct interactions with your application and push the boundaries between the digital and physical world. Guy Watson, Software Developer of Internetrix, will give you the key lessons from a multi-region synchronised SilverStripe deployment and how to get SilverStripe to work in China. He said: “It took 14 months to get an Internet Content Provider license in China”. Stuart Gonsal, Director of Wolf Interactive, will be presenting the Ian Potter project case study, which involved the development of 4 websites working off a SilverStripe multi-site setup. He will explore how the project was executed, how SilverStripe influenced and supported this vision, and what outcomes have been achieved.
