A Recap of Tridion Expert Summit 2020 - Day 2
By Manish Mehmood
After a successful first day, my expectations for TXS2020 Day 2 were high and I was not disappointed.
On this second and final day of TXS, a number of SDL partners (Tahzoo, Fonto, and Aprimo) took to the virtual stage and presented interesting and engaging demos.
A number of developers shared their technical experience through various SDL technologies. I liked how these demonstrations were useful for both technical and non-technical teams.
The session really piqued my interest when Oleksii Solodovnyk (Technical Product Owner, SDL) walked us through the Domain Specific Language (DSL) and the ways Authors could use it to create content. He then broke down the process of configuring and deploying using DSL and the significant differences between debugging with and without DSL.
The next session featured fast-paced lightning talks with SDL representatives Sayantan Basu, Velmurugan Arjun, and Luca Liu, who presented brief demonstrations on Tridion extension and Tridion best practices.
Velumurugan Arjun presented Access Management idp configurations and walked through APIs for automation. He explained its benefits, architecture, and features. He also illustrated the installation process with the help of an example.
Luca Liu explained the differences between SDL Tridion one-CMS Vs DTAP and explained the definition, DTAP architecture, and the issues with the traditional DTAP flows. He concluded by presenting different blueprints for synchronizing the data across the environments without porting the content from lower level to higher level environments.
Sayantan Basu’s (SDL) presentation was on the Advance DXA search module geared for the latest version of Elastic Search. His demo included its benefits, configuration, and features through the use of examples.
Raf Snijder’s (SDL) demo was all about publishing and extensions in SDL docs. It was really interesting to see his take on customizing the publishing in Tridion Docs.
The next presentation was centered on the Aprimo and SDL integration where Matt Clarke (Aprimo) and Niclas Cedermalm (SDL) discussed the SDL-Aprimo integration points using DAM connectors, its features, and upcoming release plans.
This was followed with a presentation given by one of the SDL’s partners, Tahzoo. In this presentation David Sterenberg explained how Tahzoo delivers a cloud forward content hub using modern web app frameworks for global enterprise customers.
This brings us to the technical session by Candas Pamukcu (Senior Software Engineer, SDL). He explained the search architecture implementation point for the Tridion Sites as well as for the Tridion Docs.
He illustrated the different types for search (basic or advanced) with the help of examples.
The last session was on building a website with semantic content models where Andriy Zhidko, Oleksii Shapovalov, and Ben Middleton (SDL) illustrated the evolution of publishing models, benefits, content modeling on content manager side, and introduction to semantic content models.
It interesting, full of fun, and the perfect conclusion to this 2-day cyber event.
