Making the Leap from Umbraco v.4/6 to v.7

The Session

Version 7 of Umbraco is out - and hot. But if you've been working in versions 4 and 6 of Umbraco for the last few years, you might be nervous about the transition to version 7. This session will focus on the similarities and differences between 4/6 & 7 - and whether, when, and how you should consider making the switch.

Topics covered:

  • Upgrading a version 4/6 site to v.7 (what to consider, when to start fresh instead)
  • What's changed (New Umbraco service APIs, Angular JS Property Editors)
  • Masterpages to MVC
  • Tools & resources to help with upgrades and getting up-to-speed.
