SDL Tridion Community week in review - August 28, 2011

And here's our second edition of the Tridion Community weekly review, for the week ending August 28th.

Julian breaks his months-long silence, Gertjan provides us with a serious look into extending the Ambient Data Framework, Frank releases us from the pressure of dealing with .config files.

Albert Romkes releases a framework providing access to Tridion content from an ASP.NET MVC3 front-end (I am quite impressed by it, and looking forward to the 2011 port) and, sadly, we get an update to the List Quick Checker from Yoav - possibly his last update.

Frank posts a recipe for Tridion developers showing how we can talk to the Core Service without using configuration files.

The "Industrial-strength" Targeting, Personalization and Profiling messaging and Press Releasehits the Interwebs, prompting a lot of buzz and re-posting.

Belgian band Pirato Ketchup launch their new album, containing catchy tunes like Escape from Tridion. Obviously, our heartbeat monitor didn't fail to report this very important event!
