Adobe Experience Manager Basics course | AEM Courses

I am extremely happy to announce the launch of my Adobe Experience Manager Basics Course ($10 Coupon code), the first on a series of AEM courses that I am going to be creating.

This course is a very high level overview of some of Adobe Experience Manager 's features focused mostly on helping you understand them at a very high level so you can start increasing your knowledge in future more specific AEM courses.

This particular AEM course covers the following:
  • What is AEM (a Content Management System or CMS by Adobe in which you can create websites similar to  Drupal, Wordpress or other CMSs - I spoiled the surprise I know).
  • How to install an author and a publish instance.
  • How to edit pages using the the classic and the touch UI.
  • Some authoring modes like edit, design and preview.
  • What are components, templates, clientlibs, etc.
  • And a simple project for you to apply some of the concepts seen in the course
A couple of years ago I started learning Adobe Experience Manager happy for a new challenge and scared because I knew nothing about it, at the time it was called CQ5 and that name didn't help either.

Later I learned that AEM is a Content Management System or CMS by Adobe in which you can create websites similar to  Drupal, Wordpress or other CMSs.  And given that I was used to creating mobile or enterprise database-centric applications this was an unknown world to me!

For some time I fantasized about having a course with everything that I wanted:
  • A simple overview so I knew what I was getting into and what to take into account
  • Some guidance on how to plan and design an AEM website app
  • How to structure my app and which generator to use
  • How to create components, templates, what to take into account for author users
All of this so I could have avoided some very obvious mistakes (in hindsight many things could have been done differently 馃槄), like refactors or a proliferation of very similar components or maybe the opposite trying to have just the one that did almost everything you could imagine.  Also instead of an all theory approach I wanted a hands on + just enough theory to keep  me going.

The course never came for me but at some point I started to think about creating one and this AEM course came to be! (well and the next ones that are yet to come, stay tuned!)

So! if you are on the look for an Adobe Experience Manager course to introduce you to the world of AEM please Enroll in my Adobe Experience Manager Basics Course ($10 Coupon code) and let me know what you think and what would you like to see in future AEM courses!

Happy learning!

Adobe experience manager is a content management system which in a nutshell is an application that allows us to create web sites to be consumed by end users. You might be familiar with other such applications like wordpress or drupal which serves the same purpose A typical deployment would be comprised of two AEM instances, the author instance used for creating and modifying content, the publish instance which serves the content and finally we have a dispatcher which is a static web server used for caching, load balancing and some security purposes. We can configure an AEM instance to work as an author or publish instance by either changing the file name
