    Custom Thumbnail Servlet

    What image rendition should I use? AEM has a workflow that will create all kinds of renditions depending on how you want to work with your original image. AEM has a ThumbnailServlet. Now given that information, we have created a better more extensible servlet that can be customized any way you like it.

    Lessons from the AEM School of Hard Knocks

    In the time since I built my first project in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM), I’ve learned that there are a lot of AEM configurators, but not many true AEM developers. In my experience, ask an AEM configurator what a thumbnail servlet is and how it works, odds are that they will probably not know what a servlet is or how it works. On the other hand, an AEM developer will know what a thumbnail servlet is and how it is used, and will likely know how to override its functionality. So if you are planning on building out a site in AEM, there are some lessons I’ve learned that you may want to take into consideration.

    Bugs With Bootstrap and Sitecore 8

    If you are the type of developer that builds for Experience Editor first and you are implementing a Twitter Bootstrap solution you will know that there are some CSS conflicts and issues in the Experience Editor. These issues don't change the functionality, but they are annoying and create a bad user experience.
