EllisLab is participating in this year’s ExpressionEngine Conference in full force. Our entire staff will be on hand and available to talk to throughout the event and we are scheduled for four different sessions:

  • Opening remarks and the State of ExpressionEngine from EllisLab’s Chief Maker, Derek Jones.
  • A Q & A Session with the entire team, moderated by conference organizer Brad Parscale.
  • Gremlins in the Gears: Troubleshooting tips and tricks from EL’s own. The EllisLab Customer Advocate Team (CATs) will present hands on walk-throughs of real world troubleshooting.  Come discuss the tools, techniques and processes you can use to assess and resolve site problems on the fly.
  • Evolving a Large Codebase, presented by veteran Software Engineer Pascal Kriete. How to make sweeping changes quickly without sacrificing stability and backwards compatibility.

In addition to fielding live questions during the Q & A panel, you can submit your question in advance. The most common, popular, and intriguing questions will be answered during the panel.
