I've always been impressed by how vibrant the Sitecore developer community is. Seriously useful information is shared on a daily basis. Subscribing to the Sitecore blogs feed, monitoring Twitter and reading Stackoverflow are all good ways to keep up on community activity.
There's another resource that I recommend you check out: the Sitecore Community Docs site. This site is a combination of link aggregation and original content.
I just added a bunch of content that are of interest to people integrating Sitecore with other systems, or people extending Sitecore. Read on for information on what specifically I've added.
A part of my role at Sitecore is to help tech partners build connectors. I consider this content to be an important part of the toolkit a developer needs to understand in order to build a proper connector.
For sure, much of this information is available elsewhere. I have written, collected, edited and refined this information over the years as a result of working with Sitecore technology partners.
Originally I planned to write an "integration bible" for Sitecore. This information comes from the first draft of that document. Collecting a large amount of content and publishing it all at once isn't a model that works very well in the Sitecore world. Things change too quickly.
Hi Adam, Will you happen to have a most up to date consolidate document on the common topics and lessons learned on Sitecore Integration? Will be great if you can share. Thanks. Adrian
