Session Session Description Speakers
Partner presentation - Fonto Subject Matter Experts authoring in large collections of content need a familiar environment rather than seeing one little snippet at a time. The Fonto structured editing platform preserves the illusion of a "book", with a Word-style scrolling editor that keeps the whole context in view. Since Fonto (and SDL Tridion Draft Space) runs in the browser, CPU & memory are limited. Therefore to preserve smooth scrolling, find & replace easily, and load content with lightning speed, we used a lazy loading approach and some other neat tricks. This sessions covers these techniques and the lessons learned. Bert Willems, CTO, Fonto
Designing a domain-specific-language to configure highly usable authoring environments Join us for a practical look at the design and creation of a domain-specific language to enable runtime configuration capabilities for Tridion Docs Collective Spaces (including problems faced and how they were solved). There's also a live demonstration. Oleksii Solodovnyk
