Welcome to Issue #8 of the AEM.News Letter
This week we've got some great articles for you, along with some interesting events, and some new releases.
A little more than a week ago we passed the 100 subscriber mark! Last week we officially launched the new home of the newsletter on AEM.News. And this week we are announcing the 'No-Code' Core Components Course!
We hope that you've found the newsletter informative and useful, and we hope that the new website will help even more. The plan is to make the aem.news the hub for all content published around the AEM ecosystem, with a newsfeed of articles from the AEM Community, guides and how-to's for AEM topics, along with our own articles and now with our first course!
As always our goal is to help you stay on top of the vast amount of information and resources available within the Adobe Experience Ecosystem through our curated content and timely updates. If you'd like to see a specific topic covered, or have suggestions for other sources you'd like to see us cover, please comment below and let us know.
There's never been a better time to build websites due to the abundance of options available and as a result the 'no-code' and 'lean-code' offerings are transforming how products get made and business gets done.
The Adobe Experience Manager is as powerful as it is complex which has prohibited it's entry into 'no-code' revolution. Until now.
The 'No-Code' Core Components course will teach you how to make a fully functional, completely customized, and beautifully on-brand website without a single line of Java in sight.
Adobe has provided the toolset with Core Components, but just as I don't know how to use all the tools in my actual toolbox, maybe you don't know how to get the most out of Core Components.
Luckily for you, I do know and I will show you how to do so too.
