I graduated from Damascus University in 2001 with a degree as an assistant computer engineer. Since then, I've been thinking about data, how it's processed, and artificial intelligence. But when I searched for the profession as a programmer to be able to navigate in this field, circumstances led me to work as a graphic designer and layout designer on InDesign application, and I love that. And with successive years I immersed myself more as a job in graphic layout. But I never left coding and did not stop thinking about artificial intelligence, not just dreams about it but thinking about philosophical and logical solutions.
Therefore, more than ten years ago, I started developing an extension to manage files and synchronize them between devices, and through the years I continued to develop it. And you can find in Adobe Exchange. Its capabilities to dynamically generate designs have been achieved through the Node.js server. The number of code lines reached thirty thousand lines of complex and logically overlapping level. But there is no sufficient use of it also it's open source and free!

About AEM I know nothing about it.

It's fascinating to hear about your background as an assistant computer engineer and your enduring passion for data processing and artificial intelligence. While circumstances led you to work as a graphic designer and layout designer, it's wonderful to see how you embraced that role and found fulfillment in it. It's impressive to hear that you never abandoned coding and continuously pursued your interest in artificial intelligence. Developing an extension to manage and synchronize files between devices is no small feat, and your dedication to improving it over the years is commendable. Thank you for joining in the AEM community.

Good day all! My name is Jodi Cramer, Software Engineer with Optum. I began with AEM as an Author and have transitioned to front-end development of components. Currently my favorite AEM feature is the AEM Style System. This feature allows one to offer "on-brand" style options that are quickly accessible to Content Authors. This really allows for a quick, efficient turnaround.

Hi , This is Sivakumar and working as AEM full stack developer in Accenture Singapore. currently we are using the AEM forms for one of the leading bank.

 

My favourite AEM feature was Content and Experience fragments which we can create once and use at multiple pages by reducing the iteration of the content creation.

 

And this content can be exported to any of the third party websites and can be import to AEM from third party as well..

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks,
Siva

Hello everyone!

I'm Mayur, a passionate Senior Software Developer at Bounteous with 2 years and 8 months of experience under my belt. I thrive on being a technology enthusiast and have gained extensive hands-on expertise in implementing a diverse range of Adobe tools and frameworks.

Throughout my career, I've actively contributed to the end-to-end development of large-scale, multilingual, global web application projects for renowned brands. I've always had an innate curiosity and fascination for cutting-edge technologies, which has driven me to stay at the forefront of advancements.

In addition to my AEM development work, I'm constantly exploring new horizons and engaging in Python development to create innovative tools and utilities that enhance business productivity. For me, software engineering is a never-ending puzzle that I am always passionately engaged in solving. I firmly believe in the transformative power of programming to positively impact lives worldwide. It's a passion that keeps me motivated and driven to make a difference.

While I appreciate all the features of AEM, there are a few that hold a special place. Among them, Dynamic Media and Asset Share Commons stand out as my absolute favorites .


Firstly, Dynamic Media empowers me to create captivating and interactive visual experiences. It allows me to easily manage and deliver rich media content, such as images, videos, and 3D assets, in a dynamic and personalized manner. This feature enables me to deliver immersive experiences to users, enhancing engagement and making a lasting impact.

Secondly, Asset Share Commons simplifies the process of sharing and collaborating on assets within AEM. It provides a user-friendly interface and robust set of tools that streamline asset management, enabling efficient collaboration among team members. I can easily search for and share assets, set permissions, and track asset usage, making it a breeze to collaborate with colleagues and stakeholders.

Hi All,
I am Rohan Garg working as a Principal Engineer at TA Digital. I have been working with AEM for 6+ years now and have worked on AEM Sites, Assets and Forms.

I have seen AEM evolve from having offline tar compaction in AEM 6.1 when the instance had to be taken offline for cleanup. In today's high availability cloud first world, it's hard to imagine the early days and ways of working!
The product has evolved in so many aspects and continues to do so with each version upgrade.

Coming to AEM Features, I will pick one from each module I use.

For AEM Sites - MSM (Multi-Site Manager) coupled with Translation was the first ever feature that wowed me thoroughly & has continued to do so! Combine MSM with Translation Tools (Clay Tablet or Smartling) and you have an amazing ease of managing websites and their languages/translation.

For AEM Assets - Connected DAM on AMS allowing site authors to access remote AEM DAM instance & Brand Portal in cloud application to share some assets with their agencies or who want to share a portal with their partner but at the same time don’t want to give them the access of DAM.

For AEM Forms - Automated Forms Conversion powered by Sensei is an interesting feature to explore. I have however loved the rule editor in each form field allowing custom validations, making REST API calls for backend integrations & form pre-filling. The ease of handling both frontend validations and backend integrations is very user friendly!
