What We Learned at the Fourth Meetup of Sitecore User Group Belarus

February 17th Sitecore community in Belarus gathered in Minsk for 4th Meetup. We had 2 guests from Hedgehog development and Sitecore MVP Dmytro Shevchenko and Georgi Bilyukov and presenter from EPAM Vladimir Zaverugo.

Dmytro Shevchenko started presentation with the topic “Sitecore xDB In-Depth: Contacts, Sessions and Clusters”. Dmytro is a Senior Solutions Developer at Hedgehog Development and Sitecore MVP and was previously working in Sitecore. Sitecore xDB usage gained lot of attention from attendees and raised multiple questions among participants and online viewers.
