We may be in the thick of another polar vortex in Chicago, but things are heating up here at CITYTECH. We’ve been cooking up some summer fun for the Adobe Experience Manager developer community. Today, we are pleased to announce CIRCUIT, our Adobe developer event, that will take place June 4-5 at the House of Blues. What?! The House of Blues? Isn’t that a restaurant and a music venue? Yes, yes it is. We’re going to take over the joint and their main restaurant and stage for our little soirée. This includes lunch in their renowned Foundation Room. For our first year, we want CIRCUIT to be intimate, funky, and friendly.

As browser-makers have altered the behaviors of traditional form elements to adapt them to new contexts (smaller screens, touch input), front-end developers find themselves more and more dependent on their ability to extend these basic building blocks to build efficient, intuitive interfaces for web apps.

Agile Methodology seems to be the favored approach when an organization has to make frequent releases to production and requires a faster release process with new changes, improvement, or functionalities in each release to production. Regression testing is an important step in the complete testing process, one that re-tests the already-functional parts of a software project after each release. After any improvement, new functionality, or bug fix, it is crucial for the tester to make sure that other fully-working processes in the software application are still working as expected before it heads out to production.

Using a tag management system (TMS) streamlines the processes for integrating your content management system with other marketing technologies. If you use Google Analytics with your Adobe Experience Manager implementation, I highly recommend looking at Google Tag Manager, Google’s new TMS, as a way to create value by increasing marketing agility.

We have seen interest from clients who need additional support for their brand new custom AEM/CQ app, and in mid-2013 we formed an application support team. The team is chartered to help clients resolve the inevitable issues that arise after transitioning a custom Adobe AEM/CQ app from the project development team. Working closely with CITYTECH’s Managed Services team, App Support is able to provide end-to-end service for all client issues.

When building content components for an Adobe Experience Manager (CQ5) implementation, there are two basic ways you can configure author interaction with those components. One of them, the edit bar, can create some challenges for component developers who are trying to be cognizant of the content author’s user experience.

When a computer “hack” gets syndicated by Tripwire, you know it's getting bad. The latest bad news comes from reading that a popular, open source application server is the target.  Ideally, you should have leaned back in your chair with a sigh of relief, but given the plethora of hearsay, articles, and blogs, it was clear that public reaction wasn’t one of relief.

Since the explosion of the mobile web and the rise of responsive web design, the elephant in the room has been images. Why is that? 1. Mobile devices typically have limited bandwidth 2. Mobile devices have limited processing power

AWS's Elastic Load Balancers (ELBs) have often had issues with services that cache DNS lookups. Akamai is an example of one service where we have had to deal with this. As you may already know, lookups against an ELB's DNS address can return several IPs, and each of these IPs correspond to a particular Availability Zone (AZ). This offers you the conventional DNS round-robin method of load balancing. When these IPs are cached, however, there have often been problems with Akamai edge servers.
