Having worked for Episerver for nearly 11 years before venturing out on my own, naturally puts both the company, it's great team of dedicated employees and it's products very close to my heart and skillset.
My expert level skills is around Episerver CMS, Episerver Find and many, many of the add-ons and related products. When it comes to Commerce, I wouldn't consider myself an expert - but I have worked with Episerver Commerce, tweaked it and optimized in multiple cases.
Among other things, I worked on setting up the Episerver TestDrive on Microsoft AppSource - which consists of a tweaked Commerce site with a guided tour taking you through it.
Go ahead and take it for spin:
Content Providers and Flat Content
A classic challenge in many CMS - and also in Episerver - has always been what do you do with large amounts of non-hierarchical/flat content? There has been many workarounds along the way and I was just on my way to make yet another when I discovered a well hidden secret deep in the belly of Episervers UI: The Asset widget (that holds blocks and media items) does in fact have infinite scrolling - which in turn can support incredibly large flat structures!
Understanding Episerver CMS - How are images rendered
When using reusable content such as images, the actual HTML rendering of them can happen multiple places. But when is what used? And how can you customize it?
VS2017 Debugger Timeout
A really annoying problem has been bothering me for a while with VS2017. When debugging most web apps, I often encounter time-outs. For some reason it happens nearly every time I do it with Episerver projects. Here is the solution.
Gist Content Provider
Always preferring coding over 'real work' I figured that it would be pretty neat if I could just drag and drop my gists on GitHub directly into my blog posts here in Episerver in order to embed them. Naturally, a content provider seemed like the right choice...
Automatic Blog Hierarchy
Here's another little trick I use on this blog. Whenever a new blog post is created, it will automagically build a year/month hierarchy of list pages and place the blog post accordingly.
Error: No parameterless constructor defined for this object
Ever started a site from scratch rather than the reference site and run into this classic error? Here's a hint for you.
Good ol' Dynamic Properties
There was a time, when men were made of steel, ships made of wood, Episerver was spelled with a weird capitalization and the CMS had something called Dynamic Properties that was usually misused. They've been gone for a while, but I miss them, so here's yet another attempt at solving the property inheritance challenge.
Episerver Static Web Site Generator
Azure Storage has a new cool feature in preview - Static Website. But what exactly does it do - and how can I connect my Episerver installation to it? I decided to find out.
