SUGCON keynote recording available

The recordings of the SUGCON event are now available including the keynote that Jason and I delivered on Friday morning.

Session outline

Composable DXP is all the rage, but what if you already have a platform installation with years of investment into getting it just how you like? How do you gradually move your architecture over to something that is MACH and headless? Do you need a full rebuild? Do you need Next.js or not? Where does content go now? What are the benefits and downsides?
