For the last 5 years, I’ve been focusing a lot of my professional time around designing experiences around Sitecore. For the last 3 of those years, I’ve been doing a large amount of development in the platform as well. After that time, I still find the platform has much to learn and with every new release, another body’s worth of features and potential comes with it.
Sitecore, as a platform, is unlike any CMS platform I’ve worked with up to this point. There are competing platforms for an enterprise level CMS; however, with so much to offer and my primary languages of choice being .Net and Node, Sitecore is an amazing platform to work within. From a User Experience perspective, no other platform that I’ve used has the capabilities for personalization, analytics, and optimization built into it out of the box. In many ways, it’s an ideal platform for someone like myself who has experiences with Marketing Technologies, Design Research, and Development.
As I continue to work within the platform from the perspective of each of these 3 areas, I plan to document a variety of tutorials and strategies here. This is for my own reference; however, like any public blog – I also hope someone will discover such and find value from such as well.
