¿Qué Pasa con Sitecore?
New Sitecore features and functionality seems to be released faster and faster these days. Especially since the release of Sitecore XP 7.5⁄8.0, it seems that with every blink of an eye there’s a new module like the Sitecore Experience Accelerator or components like the publishing service being introduced. But with the introduction of Helix, Sitecore is also taking the way Sitecore developers do their work a lot more seriously. Finally there is some guidance, best practices & architecture : Helix and an example implementation in the form of Habitat.
But even with the Helix guidance there’s a lot you can do wrong or have to figure out for yourself. The most important one might be the setting up of a Sitecore Helix solution and bringing it in production AND maintaining it. Once a solution is released to production a project doesn’t end. I actually think that part of doing a project should be doing a couple of releases to production before it goes into a maintenance phase. I doesn’t stop if you deployed to production just once.
So without further ado. Keep reading if you’d like to know what my 9 grievances are with Sitecore development and how they could be improved to make the world a better place.
