Some words from past happy hour attendees …

 “I can’t think of anything more convenient than Sitecore Happy Hours (other than maybe drive thru coffee windows or that mailbox outside the PCL that I walk by in the morning on the way to the b-school).  It’s a great way to get questions answered, brainstorm ideas, and learn new tricks. Jenn, Mark and team always have a smile on their faces.” – Angela Zerda, Marketing Manager

“[The] Happy Hour is a great opportunity to beef up your Sitecore skills. Jennifer, Mark and Mary are ready and willing to help in a super relaxed setting. Kudos to them for making this time available – I know it has been a great help to me.” – Mary Cone, Administrative Associate

“Being able to work one-on-one with the web team during the Sitecore Happy Hours has been very helpful, especially as someone new to the system. I appreciate not only how the team was able to quickly help me figure things out, but that they also took the time to explain why they did something a certain way. If you aren’t taking advantage of these Happy Hours you are really missing out!” – Kurt Mitschke, Marketing Specialist
