SDL Tridion Community week in review - December 4, 2011

And we kick-off December with, again, a rather active week by the SDL Tridion community.

To start off, we now have a date for the 2nd community webinar, January 11th 2012. So far only one presentation confirmed, but judging by the success of the previous webinar I am sure that this list will grow soon. Special thanks to Julian Wraith for organizing this.

This week we also welcome one more blogger from SDL WCM Professional Services, Monica Manzano, with a great article on the separation of design and code logic with SDL Tridion.
