Looking back on the remarkable journey I had with Sitecore in 2023!

Throughout the year, I immersed myself in various facets of Sitecore, seizing the opportunity to connect with brilliant minds within the community. This allowed me to not only expand my own knowledge but also share valuable insights with fellow Sitecore enthusiasts.

One of the highlights was the privilege of engaging with key aspects of Sitecore, gaining a comprehensive understanding of its majority parts. The experience was both enriching and fulfilling as I navigated through the intricacies of the platform.

Moreover, I had the honor of connecting with some of the industry's finest minds in Sitecore, fostering meaningful conversations and collaborations. These interactions contributed significantly to my own growth and allowed me to glean insights that I eagerly shared with the broader Sitecore community.

In this post, I'm excited to take you on a detailed journey through my year of Sitecore knowledge sharing and the various contributions I made to the Sitecore community.

Sharing my knowledge through blogs

I began blogging to share my insights and lessons learned from tackling development challenges and exploring Sitecore. My blog covers a range of Sitecore topics, including OrderCloud, Sitecore Docker Containers, XM Cloud, XM Cloud Plus, and Sitecore Headless.

Throughout the year, my blog has become more popular, averaging over 1,400 site sessions with 930 unique visitors.
