> Networking breaks, lunch and a reception so you can meet other attendees and talk with our speakers
We have 2 tracks - so you can find the one that fits you best or go back & forth between them.
Track 1 focuses on website management & CMS and doesn't require a technical background, though knowledge of HTML/CSS tinkering and web CMS is helpful.
Track 2 is a deeper dive into website projects, development and toolsets. You'll be able to understand most of it with a basic understanding of APIs & databases and some exposure to programming concepts.
