Unofficial Sitecore 8 Training Webinar Series

First these webinars are not intended for seasoned Sitecore developers. These are meant for basic Sitecore training to bridge a knowledge gap I have been seeing for a while in the community.

I notice a lot of experienced and junior .NET resources who are pushed into Sitecore with just the training and a cert. Most of the time these resources end up developing poor solutions which we all have to fix later on.

This has been going long enough. There have been many times when attendees at user groups approached experienced Sitecore devs asking questions they have spend hours to figure out. I feel like there is no MSDN version (I am talking about MSDN in 2003 when it was really good) for Sitecore for reference and even if there was, it might be difficult for those new to Sitecore to figure out what to search for.

One search in google will give you a ton on results from all over the place but its all over the place.

Hence this series.

I plan on running these webinars to get people trained up in Sitecore (Unofficially) so they make better decisions and help progress this great community of ours.

My partner in crime Mike Reynolds a two time Sitecore MVP will be working with me to deliver these sessions.

This first session will be held on Thursday February 25 2016 (9PM PST, 12AM EST, 5AM London – Feb 26, 7AM Istanbul – Feb 26, 10:30AM Delhi – Feb 26, 4PM Sydney – Feb 26).

    First Session will be either on 26th or 27th Feb Delhi timing. So you will be covering all point from above agenda or like 1, 2, 3 … and later others ?

    The Agenda shown there is for more than one session. This webinar will last 2 hours. That is not enough time to do all the items.
