Alberto Medina is flying in from Silicon Valley to attend YoastCon. Joost de Valk will do an interview with him on stage. You’ll be able to ask him questions as well. Alberto is a Developer Advocate in the Web Content Ecosystems Team at Google. He focuses on AMP, Progressive Technologies, and Content Management Systems.

Marketing experts

Apart from SEO focused talks, you can attend inspiring marketing talks as well. It will not just be SEO! We’re really enthusiastic about Wolfgang Blau coming to YoastCon. Wolfgang Blau is President of Condé Nast International. He’ll be talking about how the internet differs between continents. Interesting! And have you heard Els Aerts is coming? Els knows a lot about conversion optimization and User Testing. That’ll also be a great talk for sure!

Some awesome Yoasties

Of course, some Yoasties will take the stage as well. Joost de Valk will kick off YoastCon. That’s a tradition! He’ll talk about the latest trends in SEO. What can we expect in 2019? Jono Alderson will also be speaking. He’s already preparing his talk, and it’s going to be great fun! Next to that, I will be talking myself as well! I’m preparing a great talk about site structure and how to deal with structuring a site that is continuously growing. And, two of our most popular bloggers Caroline Geven en Annelieke van den Berg will also be speaking at YoastCon.
