SDL Tridion Community week in review - January 8, 2012

In this edition of our newsletter we will cover 2 weeks after our end-of-year break.

And what a great start to the year! Early this week we had a first-time contribution from Alexander Klock (from our US-based Partner Tahzoo) that will likely to be one of the most influential throughout the year. Please do check out his Razor Mediator, now available on

We also had a relatively strong week of information, with the usual suspects (Alvin & Andrey) making sure we don't run out of materials to read and test.
