Privacy Concerns with Face Recognition Technologies
Rodrigo Peplau

Recently I had the honor to speak at the SUGCON Europe 2019. My presentation, entitled "Face Recognition and Personalization: Data-driven Marketing in a Brick and Click Store", had an amazingly engaged audience, presenting several questions during the Q&A.

The most recurring questions are about privacy concerns in the light of GDPR and other similar regulations, so I decided to write this blog post to consolidate what I've been researching on this subject.

The Nuptial SXA Experiment - Part 1 (Introduction)
Rodrigo Peplau

As a first hands-on experience with SXA at NishTech, we chose to implement one of the Development Tests we have in-house. It's not an exercise specific to SXA nor Sitecore, but it can certainly be implemented with these tools.

The use case we are going to implement has some specific functional and non-functional requirements, but it is overall quite simple, with only two pages and four dynamic (editable) components.

But what appeared to be a straight-forward task at first glance, proved to be an interesting SXA challenge.

Send E-mail Action to Sitecore 9 Forms
Rodrigo Peplau

Sitecore 9 introduces an exciting new Forms System (see official documentation here). However, it lacks a feature that is widely used at most forms: a Send E-mail Action. WFFM does have an OOTB action, so this is really an important feature to implement.To fill this gap, Nish Tech implemented a custom Send E-mail Action for Sitecore 9 Forms. This action sends e-mails using the “Sitecore.MainUtil.SendMail” method, which uses the standard SMTP settings of Sitecore for message dispatching.

Rodrigo Peplau

This article shows a possible approach to implement a Bootstrap-Compatible Grid System taking advantage of the new features of Dynamic Placeholders to build a simple yet flexible Grid System. With that, you will be able to create complex page layouts in Experience Editor. Only a couple Views (cshtml files) were enough for this implementation, and I am pretty sure you can end up with a single view if you want. So, let’s get started!

David Hirsch

As a technical project manager for Sitecore and commerce based projects, planning is engrained in my DNA.  That said, as I study the lineup for this year’s Sitecore Symposium in less than a month to plan my day, I’m trying to figure out innovative ways that I can be in more than one session at a time.  Looks like a great opportunity for our team to split up sessions and share our findings.
