The Sitecore MVP Award made the journey once again via Go Train to Toronto where it arrived at the front desk of Brightlane to sign in.

Now it sits on the desk of the MVP it belongs to.

The award will continue on its journey tomorrow as it arrives at LSSO.

Sitecore MVP Award : The Arrival In Burlington

My Sitecore MVP award had an interesting journey.  It left its home in Manchester, NH on a Flight to  Toronto and then likely via truck to Stoney Creek.  It then boarded another truck to arrive in Burlington only to find nobody home.  It spent the night surrounded by other packages waiting for the chance to be free.

The next morning it boarded the truck and arrived  and was signed for.  It now has a new home and and a proud owner.  The award will continue to follow its owner around and will blog about its various expeditions.

Thank you Sitecore for the award.  I really appreciate it.  It looks stunning.

Use This Instead of That

As a new Sitecore developer we quickly learn that there are many ways to do something in Sitecore.  Some ways are better depending on what you are looking to do however there are cases where using the wrong methods can really hurt you going forward.

This spreadsheet is meant to help new developers with some of those cases.  It lists the task you wish to perform, the method not to use and the alternative one to use.  This could be an actual method, an object, a module, etc.

Use This instead of That

This spreadsheet is viewable by anyone.  If you would like to become a contributor send me your account that has access to Google Drive to me at and I will share it with you for edit.
