SDL Web 8 has been around for a little over a year now. Its successor (SDL Web 8.5) was recently introduced. You’d think that to an old Tridion hand like me, by now Web 8.x would be as familiar as any of the earlier (Tridion) versions. The sobering fact is that today I ran into an issue caused by a poor understanding on my side of SDL’s new microservices architecture. Fortunately it proved easy to fix.
Last week saw the premiere of Trivident’s new 2-day DD4T developer training. I traveled to the United Kingdom to deliver it to a group of very knowledgeable ASP.NET MVC developers with little or no Tridion skills.
Once again it was proven that DD4T successfully closes the gap between the world of Tridion and the world of web application developers. By the end of day 2, they were already quite productive. So much so, in fact, that I ran out of material and had to improvise a bit.
The training environment was based on Tridion 2013 SP1 and ASP.NET MVC 5. For me the first time to try that combination, but it ran smoothly right away.
We hope to be delivering this training more often.
