Hedgehog Development only Sitecore Tech Partner to Speak at Dreamcore 2011

Creators of Team Development for Sitecore (TDS) Among Elite Group of Presenters, Which also Includes Microsoft MVP and Noted Author, Carl Franklin

Holbrook, NY (April 13, 2011) - Hedgehog Development, LLC, a Long Island, NY-based custom application development and integration services consultancy, is the only Sitecore Technology Partner selected to make a presentation at the second annual Dreamcore conference, which will be held in Boston, MA on April 19,2011. The conference brings together hundreds of partners and developers who use the Sitecore content management system platform, which is based on .NET technology, to discuss innovations surrounding the Web and digital customer engagement.

In addition to being the only Sitecore Technology Partner that will be presenting at the conference, Hedgehog also has the distinction of being one of only two Sitecore partners that was invited back to speak this year from last year’s hugely successful, sold-out conference.

Dan Galvez, the visionary CEO and co-founder of Hedgehog Development, and Charlie Turano, Senior Architect and partner at Hedgehog, will be sharing, in their “Outstanding Solutions Sessions” presentation, the implementation challenges and successes that ultimately led to Hedgehog’s status as a premiere Sitecore solutions provider and winner of the prestigious Sitecore Site of the Year award in 2009.

Under Galvez’s leadership, Turano served as the lead developer behind Hedgehog’s celebrated Team Development for Sitecore (TDS), a plug-in for Visual Studio that simplifies the process of adding Sitecore items to source code,

making development in the Sitecore environment more efficient. Last month, in March 2011, Hedgehog rolled out its TDS 3.0, which comes with a host of new time-saving features such as integration with Sitecore Rocks, file path-shortening, field-level synching and a template diagrammer tool.

Galvez and Turano were also both instrumental in the development of Hedgehog’s Social Media Campaign Manager (SMCM), which enables marketers to instantly post and track social media messages directly from Sitecore. Hedgehog’s Twitter SMCM module, the first of three (Facebook and LinkedIn SMCM will be available this summer), is being unveiled at Dreamcore. Hedgehog will be providing demos of both its TDS 3.0 and Twitter SMCM products during the conference.
