About this event

Optimizely is excited to support our Optimizely MVPs and developers in bringing the network together again at their upcoming local developer meetup! Our host is Knowit. Enjoy a night full of networking, great content/speakers, food, and beverages!


Petri Isola, Senior Solution Architect @ Optimizely – “Introduction to Web and Full Stack experimentation”. A long-time Episerver and Optimizely veteran, Petri Isola from our Helsinki office, will provide an introduction to two powerful, recent Optimizely offerings: ODP and Full-Stack. Both of these products offer a myriad of opportunities for developers to have a lot of fun. Petri has a long experience with content management, eCommerce, and marketing automation, all of which these two offerings complement. Prior to joining Optimizely over a decade ago, Petri worked at a leading Web-to-Print vendor in the Boston area in Massachusetts, USA.

Previously a developer, architect, and technical director, David is now VP of Solution Architecture for Optimizely and also an OMVP/EMVP alumni. A veteran of numerous implementations across e-commerce and marketing, David knows what success looks like and is always looking at new ways of exploiting the latest tools and technologies to create joined-up, deeply personal experiences for customers.
