It took me a few days, but the Sitefinity 4.0 BETA webinar is now uploaded & available for your viewing pleasure:
Watch this video in its full-sized glory at tv.telerik.com.
Those of you who attended this webinar live know that we experienced a few technical issues during this webinar. The biggest challenge was that the webinar was ended (for everyone) about 8 minutes into the presentation. This forced everyone, myself included, to rejoin. This was definitely a first and I apologize to anyone who didn’t make it back into the webinar.
In addition, I was using a pre-BETA build for the demonstration. This demo build was created minutes before the webinar and, sadly, we discovered issues during the live webinar. The small technical issues seen in the video will be fixed for the BETA.
We were also overwhelmed with questions. During this webinar we received 407 questions. Ivan Osmak went into auctioneer mode to address these questions, but even this wasn’t enough to stem the tide.
All of these factors made the webinar deviate from the pacing and presentation that I had practiced. But that’s the fun of live events. :) Despite the unplanned bumps, there is a lot of great information packed into the video.
Regarding the 407 questions, I trimmed the huge question & answer session from the end of this video. From an editing perspective, it was simply too much. It was also extremely rapid fire and difficult to follow. What we will do instead is organize these questions and answers through the blogs. Internally we’re already collaborating on answers and we’ll get them posted later in the week.
Also, if you’re interested the code and powerpoint slides from this presentation have been posted in another blog post. The BETA will be released later this week and we’re anxious for your feedback!
