It was not long ago when you need to mention Docker at least once during your presentation to make it cool and trendy. And actually, there is a good reason for that. Containerization provides a way to make environments portable and immutable.
Immutable infrastructure for Sitecore would be much desired, but containers are on Windows are not so cool yet.
It doesn’t mean that you cannot get it but we will need to bake it a bit different. Let me show you how…

A big portion of last year I’ve spent building accelerators for a Sitecore solution scaffolding and deployments aside from production projects. All this work was done for VMs created in a cloud managed via OpenStack.
Using PowerShell DSC we were able to easily setup single machine local sandboxes as well as multi-server environments. However, provisioning VM and then configuring them is still less than ideal for deployment of an application. What I was really waiting for is a release of a windows containers.
Finally, they arrived closer to the end of last year and few month later I was able to try them out. So I’m going to start describing what I’ve ended up creating, keeping in mind that tweet from last year:

It’s been a while since I wrote about Sitecore, React and embedded JS Engine. Also, my presentation on Philadelphia SUG last year was mainly theoretical. So the last few days I’ve spent cleaning up my sources that I’ve been using for those posts.
It looks like that this time to open sources. Continue reading “How to marry ReactJS and Sitecore with Webpack – Part 4. Module on GitHub”

I’ve ended my previous post I’ve mentioned that I would add redux in a Sitecore-ReactJS mix. That is what I’m going to talk about in this post. Continue reading “How to marry ReactJS and Sitecore with Webpack – Part 2. Adding Redux”
There were a few posts on the internet on how to integrate front-end code into a Sitecore solution. It all started with a post from Alex Shyba. Back in February, he describes the general concept of an integration. Then Richard Seal created a module for Sitecore that allow you to use jsx renderings in Sitecore.
I was trying to solve a problem of an HTML handover between front-end and Sitecore developers for a while. Finally, I was able to play with ReactJS and Sitecore by myself and here is what I end up doing.

Our port of Sitecore Reference Storefront finally passed all internal checks and got open sourced on EPAM’s GitHub account right before Sitecore SYM 2016.
Habitat version of a Sitecore Reference Storefront on GitHub
Fell free to dig in and answer your questions in comments, social networks or in person during the Symposium (you will be able to find near an EPAM booth during breaks)
