In fact I personally feel we should also launch something for the non-technical/functional users who want to explore Sitecore for their business needs, especially Digital Marketers, Content Authors etc.
Like Microsoft Dynamics have their online Portals with limited trial periods where we can experience the functional capabilities of the product.
Similarly we can also launch something like SaaS with all the essential components needed to make basis website running. Where development will not be possible but the users can explore all the powerful functionality of the product.
Just a thought.
Agree Jason, this is a very long awaited and badly needed initiative. We are thankful to Sitecore for this. I am sure this will be beneficial for a lot of our folks around the globe.
