Online moving in-store Until a few years ago, many experts predicted that the internet would eventually sound the death-knell for high-street retailers. However, the widespread movement of brands successfully introducing elements of online shopping into their in-store environments has overturned this theory. Instead, retailers – online and offline – are creating engaging, seamless shopping experiences for customers, however they decide to interact with a brand. Much of the appeal of online...

    Agile QA

    Posted 3/4/2014 by jedrzej.osinski

    The concept of software testing is as old as computer science itself. However, during a last few years the perception of a QA engineer in companies has significantly changed. The number of tasks associated with QA and the responsibilities of QA have been constantly increasing as the IT industry continuously discovers newer and newer meanings of the word quality. Let's review these changes... First, what is the definition of a tester? Well, if an employee from a different department is asked, t...

    Online is moving in-store

    Posted 2/10/2014 by Dharmendra Patel

    With the relentless rise of online shopping, experts had predicted that the bricks and mortar store was becoming ineffective and would eventually have no use in our high streets. However, disproving this theory, a recent study from The Royal Mail shows that 16 percent of online retailers are expecting to open bricks and mortar stores this year. What we’ve started to see are pure play retailers, like eBay and Amazon, establishing a physical presence, in a bid to offer an integrated custo...

    Digital Killed the Retail Star – Or Did It?

    Posted 1/16/2014 by Dharmendra Patel

    Whether you know it or not, the pop song “Video Killed the Radio Star” by UK one-hit wonders the Buggles, is etched into your brain. Even if you weren’t around in 1979, when this song topped the British pop charts, you’ve probably heard later versions by Erasure, Superbus or Presidents of the U.S.A.   After this song became the first music video played in 1981 on MTV in the US, the Buggles started selling loads of records there -- a bit of a miracle, since the band was unheard of and th...

    Tracking history of item fields changes in Sitecore

    Posted 12/29/2013 by Marek Musielak

This information however is overwritten with every consecutive update. And in fact we're not able to tell what has changed. Sometimes we need to be able to tell more about the history of the item and about the changes performed by editors. This post explains how we can easily track more details about item updates. The easiest way of accessing th...

    Changing workflow state of Sitecore items programmatically

    Posted 12/27/2013 by Marek Musielak

    Sitecore Workflows provide a great mechanism of creating, maintaining and reviewing content. Editors can use built-in applications like Workbox or execute workflow commands from the Sitecore Content Editor or Page Editor. However in some cases developers need to change the workflow state of the item from the code without accessing UI. This blog post explains how this can be achieved in 3 scenarios: 1. Change workflow state of an item only. 2. Change workflow state of an item and execu...

    Serialization and deserialization with Sitecore Powershell Extensions

    Posted 12/4/2013 by Marek Musielak

    Every time one asks about automation of processes or tasks in Sitecore I hear one answer: 'Sitecore Powershell Extensions'.
