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.

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:

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:

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

Also a more detailed blog post about my presentation will come soon.

Some photos at the event are uploaded here https://www.meetup.com/Cluj-Napoca-Sitecore-Meetup/photos/26771508/ and here https://www.facebook.com/AdditionConsulting/posts/1230094163687458

Thank you everyone for the presence.

Just to start…

I have been thinking about this for a while, and finally decided to create a Blog.

I work for quite a while with Sitecore, so primary I will write here about challenges, suggestions and interesting things related with Sitecore and not only.
