SDL Tridion Community week in review - March 18, 2012

Hi and welcome to one more weekly review, for the week ending on March 18th.

This week's big event was obviously the Community Webinar organized by Julian Wraith on Wednesday. This week we had great presentations, from Chris Summers (UrbanCherry) on "Taxonomy driven websites at Yale School of Medicine" and Mark Saunders (Content Bloom) "The Navigation Debate".

Both presentations are available online, and the seminar recording is available here. Excellent job from Julian and both presenters to offer us the best community webinar (so far).

And, of course, we have again a fine selection of code samples, community debates, what-if scenarios and general blogs from the community out there.
