This followed by Raj Kumar from Sapient running through various Tridion caching, their management and invalidation etc.


After the tea break, it was Alvin who took over and presented very insightful information on Personalization and Privacy with special attention on GDPR (which is due to come in effect in late May this year).

The lightening talks are only run by Hem Kant from Content Bloom who speaks briefly about the MVP program and community sharing followed by a very interesting and live demo of how to run DXA in a Docker container.


I, presented my second session of this TDS which was demoing Content Bloom’s experience in creating a demo website utilizing the Universal Delivery Platform (UDP) and creating a content mash-up from SDL Web (now Tridion Sites) and SDL Knowledge Center (now Tridion Docs).
The demo shows a website targeted towards banking vertical and generating a content mash-up of structured content like Loan Processing Forms, Account Opening Form etc. (managed in SDL Knowledge Center/Tridion Docs) and Web Content like News, Articles etc. (Managed in SDL Web/Tridion Sites).
The content is fetched in a unified way through a single DXA based application from Knowledge Center (Tridion Docs) and SDL Web (Tridion Sites) by utilizing various Unified Delivery Platform microservices and displayed on the web pages or sections on a webpage.
