DNNCon Presentation: Easily Build Customized E-Commerce in DNN Featuring Hotcakes Commerce

DNNCon 2014: Hotcakes Commerce BoothThe past few weeks have been a blur for us here at HotcakesCommerce for quite a few reasons… We were highly involved at DNNCon Palm Beach2014. This is the third consecutive DNNevent that we’ve sponsored and attended. We not only sponsored this time, but we also co-organized, provided atraining track, presented 2 sessions, and emceed the event. It’s always great to participate with the DNNcommunity and this time we took it to a whole new level.

A General Wrap Up

Overall, the trend seems to continue. DNNCon Palm Beach 2014 was the most fun andsuccessful one yet. Registration and attendancerecords were yet again broken. Half theattendees raised their hands when asked if this was their first DNNConevent. Sponsorship was at an all-timehigh both in terms of donations, as well as vendors in booths at the event itself. There were attendees from as faraway as Nigeria and Singapore. Place ofHope had a higher donation than last year. Let’s also not forget that there were also more rum cakes at this DNNConthan ever before! (Thanks to Clint Patterson’s amazing mother!)

If you attended, you definitely felt the vibe and had a great time – from the ice cream social, to the closing ceremony prizes – it was agreat time had by all and we got to learn a lot at the same time.

Our Session

@DavidPoindexter tweeting about the presentation

I gave a session about Hotcakes to show just how easy it isto begin building an e-commerce website with our product. We can’t say that enough… We make thingseasy. For everyone. This isn’t very true both within and outsideof the DNN ecosystem.

I first gave everyone an overview of what Hotcakes is andwhy it exists. I then spoke about how we’renot just another vendor. We are a realcompany, with a real team, and our only focus is e-commerce. From there, I dove into how easy designerscan customize the look and feel of Hotcakes using contemporary webstandards. We had a ton of great questions, so we didn’t complete the final demo, but I think we got the point across.

You’ll find our presentation below, and a video of thispresentation should be available on the DNNCon website in another week ortwo.

Thank You

As a company and a product, we of course participate with one of the goals being to market ourselves and maybe get a few sales out of it at the same time. This is the same for all sponsors.

We just want to thank the overwhelming number of people that were doing our job for us. We definitely felt the love. Not only did we hearpeople talking about us in general, but Tony Carter (Carter Solutions) gave a great session that included Hotcakes, and Cassidi Brickner (10 Pound Gorilla) gave asession that was almost exclusively about Hotcakes. DNN Corp co-founder and VP of Technology gave us a few plugs during the keynote. Thebottom line is this…

We very much appreciate the support you all have provided to us as we make e-commerce something you can do again in DNN. We are very excited to continue to make youproud and even take it to the next level next year.
