Bluesoft highlights from Kentico Connection Brno 2023


We couldn’t miss out on the Czech Kentico Connection of 2023, this time in Brno! This year was quite special, delving into the tech insights and roadmap of Xperience by Kentico (XbK). The experience was enriched by engaging discussions and presentations, establishing a clear path for the future of all Kentico partners and our clients. The best part? We got to share our own real, tech insights about the newest solution for 1. FSV Mainz 05 on the stage!

Xperience by Kentico - the future of web development in practice

Untraditionally, we’ll start this article with the second day of the connection, as we have a more personal experience to share. XbK has been on the market for about a year now and our newest solution has been a part of paving the way for it. Sharing the stage with a solution partner Kuehlhaus, we had the one and only case-study look in Brno, into one of the first and largest websites build on the Xperience by Kentico so far. The football club 1. FSV Mainz 05 was searching for a solution that would help them bring the relationship with their fans on the field, to the digital world. The hybrid headless, multichannel XbK solution was a perfect fit.

Our role on this project was development, so our Principal Software Architect Milan Šůstek took the stage to talk about his insights. He really delved into a more practical comparison between XbK and the previous solution - how incredibly fast it is overall, which features feel familiar and what has changed. He also didn’t shy away from the challenges that come with the new product, explaining how we solved and tackled some of them. For example, we replaced an item linking feature with child-parent hierarchies in Pages application.

The first day set the tone for us, answering the most burning questions, it was packed with presentations flashing out the XbK road map, their vision and how they want to dedicate to future-proofing this product so that our clients can always have the edge on the market. A notable highlight was the introduction of a new feature – an AI-powered email writer, a significant enhancement for client customer care. Kentico's commitment to long-term success is evident, and we're thrilled to be part of it!

Thank you Kentico for making an incredible space for networking, discussion and in-person connection. Looking forward to sharing even more next year.
