My experience on sitecore — read it before implementing sitecore in your organization

Frankly — When I started Sitecore development before 2 years I ago. I was feeling that it is not good product due to it’s documentation as I’m big fan of MSDN! But if you ask me today — then I would not agree, as I’ve realized power of Sitecore — really great product! I’m sure Sitecore guys must have been working on documentation part. But I will try to share my experience with you.

1. Training is really good thing — Try to do Student Exercises from training material. Before your team starts working on Sitecore train them.

2. Sitecore development has one flow, On which I’ve penned down an article – https://sitecorebasics.wordpress.com/2011/05/13/basics-of-sitecore-for-beginner-developers/

3. Before you start define what you want? [Plan before you start!] [How many users will be using the system? What is expected publish time?] – NonLinear and Oshyn Guys provided nice whitepapers on it. Links are here : https://sitecorebasics.wordpress.com/2011/05/11/sitecore-best-practices-and-implementation-guidelines/ https://sitecorebasics.wordpress.com/2011/03/09/sitecore-implementation-notes/

4. Get used to with Reflector – try exploring the things using Reflector.

5. Be active on SDN Forums and raise Sitecore support ticket when you don’t have any clue.

6. Plan your Development environment very well — I’ve penned down white paper on it — https://sitecorebasics.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/developing_and_deploying_with_sitecore_in_four_levels_version1-0.pdf

7. While planing for your CM and CD environments keep your vision long. Nice article on it : https://sitecorebasics.wordpress.com/2011/04/25/basics-of-sitecore-hosting-architecture/

8. Also, still your team becomes expert in Sitecore, validate all your implementations from any Sitecore partner, good Sitecore consultant(s).

Happy Sitecoring! 🙂
