Welcome to day two of the Tridion Expert Summit Alex Abey, SVP Solutions and Partners, RWS
08:05 Partner presentation - Fonto 

Keeping track of organization-wide comments in Review Space

Commenting on XML-based content has traditionally been limited. Only one person can comment on a piece of content at a time, and if too many comments are made over time, or if content changes, they're impossible to manage. 

A different approach behind Review Space keeps comments separate, reportable, and manageable but tied to the content they relate to. This presentation shows how we achieve this with a polished UX, solving the moving target problem using activity position tracking and position recovery.

Bert Willems, CTO, Fonto
08:35 Designing a domain-specific-language to configure highly usable authoring environments A practical look at  challenges and solutions when  creating a domain-specific language to enable runtime configuration capabilities for Tridion Docs Collective Spaces. There's also a live demonstration.
