Episerver Commerce and SignalR Core together can provide real-time synchronization of two shoppers' web browsers, to create a single collaborative shopping session. This is close to the real-time shopping experience of a family or friends in a supermarket. Shoppers could shop together in a joint session, Share products and add into the basket. Shoppers can split payments for their items in the basket also. The site will be recommending products based on the chat between shoppers.

Mention SEO and most people's thoughts will turn to meta tags but times have changed. Modern search engines determine search rank based on over 200 factors, primarily focused on rewarding expertise, authoritativeness and trustworthiness (E-A-T) together with a quality user experience. So how can we ensure the sites we build provide maximum organic SEO performance and empower our editors to produce search engine friendly content? Join EMVP Paul Gruffydd to explore some of the factors search engines use to evaluate a site, and learn how we can build on Episerver's features and functionality to develop search engine optimised sites - whether they are built as a traditional coupled CMS site or take a headless approach.
Speaker: Paul Gruffydd, EMVP, AmazeRealise.

What would a content management system look like if it didn't actually "manage" any content? What if content originated in other systems and was then pushed into a CMS? In the future, we might find that a "CMS" has become a coordination, delivery, and optimization platform for a wide array of backend content sources. In this brave new world, where do we draw the boundaries, how do we architect the big picture, and what is the value proposition?
Speaker: Deane Barker, Senior Director, Content Management Strategy, Episerver.
