A decade of success
Over the past ten years, the SDL Tridion DX Community has been at the forefront of change and innovation. In the early days it changed SDL’s policy of keeping product documentation behind a login. This has enabled all developers and Community members to learn more about SDL’s technology. The Community also managed to secure free licenses from SDL for anyone that wants to learn more about SDL Tridion DX, and actively contribute to its success.
The Community encouraged SDL to create and share various open source projects via https://sdl.github.io. The most impactful Community achievement is the launch of SDL Tridion DX’ Digital Experience Accelerator (DXA) which accelerates deployments of SDL Tridion DX. It uses various common open source frameworks and toolkits and is available in both .NET and Java versions Responsive design techniques and web standards make it easy to deploy a fully functional complex SDL Tridion DX implementation up to 80% faster.
