Sitecore Community Meetup #7 follow up

1 week ago we had another Sitecore User Group meetup in Cluj-Napoca. And it was a blast.

We had the meetup at a new cool location in the city Silicon Forest Central Park

Silicon Forest Central Park

And this time the meetup was sponsored by Sebastian Tecsi, Vlad Iobagiu and Daniel Mocan.

I was nice evening where we gathered and talked about some interesting subjects.

Fist we kicked off with Using and Customizing SXA presented by our friend from Slovakia: Peter Procházka https://twitter.com/chorpo . This presentation was online and unfortunately we forgot to recorded it, but Peter had a similar presentation on SUG meetup organized on 27th September 2019 in Budapest and you can watch the live stream recording https://youtu.be/KuDG_xeS2lI?t=481.

Second we had Alina Fodor and she showed us Provision Sitecore in Azure and Continuous Integration using Azure DevOps . She made as well a live demo where she created a new instance of Sitecore 9.2 in Azure using Azure DevOps, and by the end of her presentation the new Sitecore instance was deployed and content available and published.

In the last session we had proposed some round table discussions where we would split in 3 groups where each group will have a specific subject. Thank you Vlad https://twitter.com/sitecoreclimber for the proposal.

But we were not that many left in the room so we decided to change a bit the proposed session – we all proposed subjects and voted what to discuss and we all discussed the subjects with higher number of votes.

We had the following subjects proposed: Sitecore Forms, JSS, GDPR, Azure Search vs SolR, Publishing Service and New features in past 5 years in Sitecore.

And after votes we all discussed about Sitecore Forms, Azure Search vs SolR and New features in past 5 years in Sitecore and it was a very interesting.

Sitecore Community Meetup #6 Review

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.

First Cluj-Napoca, Romania Sitecore Meetup

Hello there,

We had last week (25th February 2016) our first Sitecore Meetup in Cluj-Napoca, organized by Cluj-Napoca Sitecore Technical User Group and sponsored by Addition

The initial schedule was:

  • 6:45 pm: Best practices in a multisite solution – Vlad Iobagiu, MVP
  • 7:30pm: Continuous Delivery with Team City, Sebastian Tecsi Solution Architect @Addition
  • 8:00 pm: Sitecore v8.1 new features – Daniel Mocan, Solution Architect @Addition

Vlad had some problems with his flights and we held his presentation a bit later and over Skype with lots of Airport Announcements in the background 🙂 But at the end we managed to get the useful information out of him 🙂

Overall was a nice evening with some beer, pizza, soft-drink and lots of talks about Sitecore.

My presentation attached here . Also the little code that I have used is here too: https://github.com/sebastiantecsi/cidemo
