Blend is proud to announce two new Umbraco Certified Professionals within our midst: Chase Burandt and Joe Kepley!

Certification, which involves testing and training on Umbraco fundamentals and an understanding of Umbraco’s features, is key to being a trusted Umbraco developer. With this certification, Blend continues its relationship with Umbraco as a certified partner.

Our Umbraco development practice is led by Chase Burandt, who has brought his knowledge of LAMP development in Drupal and applied those concepts and principles to our Umbraco sites. Additionally, Joe Kepley, Blend’s Chief Technical Officer, keeps certification in his back pocket to help understand the CMS landscape.

Blend’s work with Umbraco has been a welcome addition to our repertoire of CMS experience, with “the Friendly CMS” filling a needed role for those looking for a robust but affordable open-source solution.

Congrats, Chase and Joe!
