2 weeks ago we had another Sitecore User Group meetup in Cluj-Napoca.
I was nice evening where we gathered and talked about some interesting subjects.
Fist we kicked off with JSS and Marketing Automation presented by our friends from USA: Corey Smith https://twitter.com/sitecorey and Rick Bauer https://twitter.com/Sitecordial. Focusing on developers, this session provided a high-level understanding of what the end product of Sitecore Marketing Automation should look like from a marketer’s perspective based on real-world use cases. Then we pop open the hood and show how it was achieved using JSS, including tips, tricks, and lessons learned. This presentation was online and we recorded it so you can watch it latter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiBpVIML43o .
Second we had Vlad Iobagiu https://twitter.com/SitecoreClimber and he showed us how to Extend Commerce Engine in Sitecore. He made as well a live demo and he promised that he will try to blog more about Sitecore Commerce.
Last presentation, by Sebastian Tecsi https://twitter.com/sebastiantecsi it was of SUGCON Europe 2019 follow up. Where we talked about some selections of presentations from SUGCON Europe 2019.

In case you have not used Sitecore Support Portal in a while, Sitecore made a change on where to upload the files needed in order to investigate a ticket.
This message can be seen in email notifications from Sitecore Support:
Sitecore Support File Server available at ftpes://dl.sitecore.net/upload is scheduled for decommissioning on 01-Feb-2019.
Please use an alternative approach for exchanging files with Sitecore Support team via Sitecore Support Box Storage.
Additional information is available here: https://kb.sitecore.net/articles/862874
Basically if you wish to upload files larger than 10 MB to the Sitecore you will need to use the new option that is available to everyone Sitecore Support Box Storage.
After you login to Sitecore Support Portal its quite easy to find Sitecore Suport Box Storage:
As a limitation you cannot upload more than 3 files at once and each file not bigger than 1 GB.
You also have the possibility to mark the files to what ticket number it belongs to:
Compared with the old ftp option, now you have the option to remove yourself old files, and sort them too.
Sitecore Support Box Storage security:
1. Files uploaded via this dialog are accessible only to Sitecore Support engineers and are automatically cleaned up 90 days after the upload date.
2. Your colleagues are able to see the full list of files but cannot download them.

Well, I was a bit stressed about this certification. I have not worked that much in Sitecore lately and I did not really prepared for this exam. I participated at Sitecore MVP Summit 2018 and up until the evening before the day the exam was scheduled I was not 100% that I really want to take the exam, but made my mind and in the morning at 8:00 I was present in the room to take the exam, even that I was bit tired.
After signing up at the location – took a bit to do it – the exam started. There were 50 questions, with a countdown of 1h and 30 minutes, but apparently the room was booked for something else at 09:00, so I had a bit more than 1 minute for each question. That went quite well and I’ve passed the exam and now I am a Sitecore® 9.0 Certified Platform Associate Developer.
A study guide for the exam can be found here: https://sitecore.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/16000067853-sitecore-certified-platform-associate-developer-exam-study-guide-
