SXA Page branches can be used to create modifiable landing pages and other page types that you want to have a flexible layout. Once you have created a page branch, editors can use them as templates to create and modify pages in both the Experience Editor and in Horizon.
The Sitecore demo team builds container images with many base operating systems. We build on Linux, Windows Server 2019 (ltsc2019), and two semi-annual releases (2004 and 20H2 at the moment). See how we achieve this without adding additional build time, by leveraging the Microsoft Azure Pipelines Matrix Strategy to run the same job in parallel against different agent pools.
We've discovered the beauty of Virtual Machine Scale Sets (VMSS) in Azure. This is a step-by-step guide on how you can create scale sets for different Windows or Linux versions and configure Azure pipeline agent pools to use them - it's built in!
How does the demo team generate realistic looking analytics data? This post will serve as an introduction to Experience Generator (xGenerator).
scr.sitecore.com is the official Sitecore container registry, great. Where are all of these images coming from?
So you've just got your hands on a Sitecore instance running the Lighthouse demo - what next? This post will help you explore some of the marketing features available in the demo (Yes, those mythical phase 2 marketing features!).
