12:00: Notifications Deep Dive

Have you seen that little bell icon in the top right of the UI? That's just the tip of the iceberg. I'll show you how to use the Notifications API to send direct user messages in the UI, notifications to their cell phones, and even make the office lights blink. Use Notifications to broadcast system messages to a group of users, letting an editor know that their article is popular on Twitter, or anything else you can imagine.

Speaker: John-Philip Johansson, Developer at Episerver. 

12:00: Promotions - a deep dive

This will be a deep-dive into the internals of the new promotion system in Episerver Commerce. We’ll cover all the gruesome details on how promotions are evaluated, calculated and applied. What happens when you combine a “Buy 3 get cheapest free” promotion with a “Buy 2 for fixed price” promotion? Lots of code running in the debugger to give a deeper understanding – hopefully allowing you to use the system in the best way possible.

There are many ways how to extend the editor interface for you as a developer, some complex and some a little easier.

14:30: Content Approval is the new black

Before publishing an article an editor might want their changes to be reviewed by someone. That's now easy using Content Approval that's just going public beta in CMS 10.1.0. But what about company policies, legal requirements, or any other excuse to enhance reviews with AI? We'll use Microsoft Cognitive Services to show how you can extend and enhance the Content Approval sequences using our Approval API's.
