MVP Nomination

Wohooooo, awesome things happened to me! On November 27th 2014, I received an email from Sitecore Headquarter. They nominated me as MVP (Most Valued Professional).

I hope I doesn’t end up like Leonardo DiCaprio… always nominated for an Oscar, but never won. 😀

My hope that it’s folding this year, is rather low, because I don’t have much Blog entries, Stackoverflow comments or even Sitecore Forum threads and comments, but nevertheless at least one great Sitecore Translation module on Sitecore Marketplace!

We have 3 huge Sitecore projects of global playing customers in the company I work and my focus is on: Work! Work! Work! Do some new best practices! Work! Work! Dive into the deeps of Sitecore! Work! Family! Work! 😀

No fun! Even in my free time (mostly at night) I work on a Sitecore project which will be released in March and just believe me, this project is full of Sitecore best practices like Dynamic Key Placeholder (for sure), a great structure, forms created with Web forms for Marketers (read my next blog about WFFM), Glass.Mapper with Interface based Models and inheritance templates, Customer data imports through scheduled tasks and many more!

Uhm, lots of stuff to write hundreds of blogs! The day should have 48 hours to find the time to wrote blogs. 😉

Stay excited 😉

Best regards Dirk


Sitecore DMS .NET Developer (DND)

A work colleague and I had a certification for Sitecore DMS. NET Developer (DND) today. The certification was held by Andreas Schmidt and was (as always) very revealing. Once I have further deepened the practices, I’m looking forward to showing you new interesting aspects of Sitecore. 😉
