SDL Tridion Community week in review - February 12, 2012

And once again, welcome to our weekly SDL Tridion Community review for the week ending on February 12th 2012. This one has a special feel to it, as we reach our 26th edition - or approximately half a year of weekly reviews.

Ever since the first review was written we have shared 183 articles (an average just above 7 per week or slightly above one per day) which gives me (and others) a great deal of satisfaction!

Reminder: If you live in the Toronto area and work with Tridion, don't miss the Toronto Tridion User Group, organized by Catharine Macdonald on February 22nd.
