Adobe Experience Manager’s latest release became generally available on the 26th of April 2017 and being Adobe Partners we got the opportunity to try it out hot off the press. It’s a minor release but introduces some new key features that go a long way to make Adobe Experience Manager a more enjoyable product to use. Not only from an authoring standpoint but also for developers. Here’s some of the great things about 6.3 as well as the “not so great”.
As part of the Adobe Partner program, various sessions and events are organized to keep partners updated on the latest features of the Adobe Marketing Cloud platform. Best practices are also talked about in order to deliver high quality solutions to clients that invest in Adobe’s digital experience management solutions.
On February 15th, Shine Solutions was invited to an Adobe Innovation Session with a focus on managing the Customer Journey in a cross-channel marketing environment. This is a summary of what we heard that day.
Your company has decided to migrate their web presence to Adobe Experience Manager and you’re getting to the tail end of the project. This is usually the point when you realise your URLs need to be shortened, because, let’s be frank: who wants to see “/content” in their URL? And, whilst we’re at it, you should probably get rid of that “html” extension as well.
So the problem we’re trying to solve is how to turn a URL like
http://acme.com/about. There are various ways of going about it and naturally there are trade offs with each approach. In this post I’m going to summarise each approach and it’s tradeoffs.
Shine developer and resident AEM expert Michael Leroy will be speaking at the Adobe Source event being held in Sydney on Oct 12 and 13.
Michael will be presenting twice. The title of his first talk will be “Building a corporate site solution using Multi Site Manager”. This will be based on the work Shine does at Medibank with AEM. Secondly, inspired by a topic he has previously blogged about, Michael will do a short talk on “Style Guides and AEM: Fitting a square peg in a round hole”.

However, things are not always this easy. In my experience working with AEM/CQ, integrating a style guide into a project has consistently been a challenge.
I started using Adobe Experience Manager (CQ 5.6.1) with a focus on component development and building OSGi services and I strongly believe that learning how to leverage AEM’s capabilities (as well as it’s underlying technologies like Apache Sling) are key to a successful CMS implementation.
With that in mind, I’ve been keeping a list of useful tips and tricks that I’d like to share with you. These are mostly about increasing productivity when working with AEM or just general things I wish I knew about earlier. This post is targeted more at developers starting out with AEM but I’m also hoping more seasoned users can benefit from it too.
