Access recordings and highlights from October's virtual event here.
Keynote by Zack Rosen, CEO, Pantheon
WebOps Summit comes at a time where we're all looking to drive results and create impact online—more so than ever before. Using WebOps, our customers have been able to pivot quickly and sustain growth during this period of digital transformation. Just like the open web is a tool for democratizing information and affording access to all, this event aims to impart some of the knowledge, experience, and methodologies that make WebOps so effective in a digital-only world.
Keynote by Josh Koenig, Head of Product, Pantheon
At a time when the open web is so essential to our economy and society as a whole, it is also under threat. While there is huge investment in closed platforms, wall gardens, and app development, there is minimal investment in making the open web a world-class platform that delivers results. That's Pantheon's differentiator. We are committed to investing back into the infrastructure we rely on so heavily. And the way we do that is with WebOps.
To unlock true productivity and effectiveness, website operations - including the team and the site itself - must meet six keys. Performance, iteration, collaboration, measurement, optimization, automation. These are what you're going to hear about during this Summit, from our people and our customers.
Keynote by Share Our Strength's Jason Wilson, Head of Brand + Justin Weyman, Head of Website
In this session, nonprofit Share Our Strength discusses how they pivoted at the onset of Covid to feed kids in need across America— even as schools shuttered. To provide families access to the resources they need, the team at Share Our Strength built a Free Meals Finder map in under 2 weeks, and have raised more than $27 million in emergency grants. Their web traffic spiked as schools began to close, and this hasn't slowed; their top 20 traffic days have all occurred since March 12.

Technical Session by Tara King, Developer Outreach Manager, Pantheon

Keynote by Alex Vasquez, Co-Founder, DigiSavvy
When Reebok approached Pantheon Hero & Digisavy founder Alex Vasquez to "flip the fashion industry's production model on its head", his first response was yes, then the anxiety arrived. At our WebOps Summit Alex describes how ten teammates in six time zones managed to complete the project, sell out stock, and model an exciting path forward for the rest of the organization. This was all made possible with WebOps.
Keynote by Christy Marble, CMO, Pantheon

Technical Session by Nick Barber, Senior Analyst, Forrester + Josh Koenig, Head of Product, Pantheon
Fragmented content systems with duplicated, decaying, or unsearchable content wreak havoc across enterprise organizations today, but a new flavor of CMS is arriving. The pendulum is swinging from content management systems that require deep developer involvement to Agile CMS, which satisfies both IT teams and marketing practitioners.
