Commerce Server Training

This is a three day course designed to bring .Net developers or architects up to speed on Commerce Server. We assume no Commerce Server experience.

Course topics Commerce Server 11

  • A thorough understanding of the core systems is essential. This course gives a grounding in the subsystems with the modules on the Catalog, Inventory, Profile, and Orders Subsystems
  • No prior Sitecore experience is needed, this course covers the foundation concepts as well as the integration between Sitecore and Commerce Server

Course topics Commerce Server 10

  • Commerce Multi-Channel Foundation, discusses the entity model based development for Commerce Server 10. This is the key topic of the course, but can only be handled on the third day after you understand the core systems in Commerce Server 10.
  • After the topic SharePoint and Commerce Server, you will understand the SharePoint architecture, and how to use it to build Commerce Server sites. You will understand the decision matrix, whether to use SharePoint Foundation, SharePoint Server or aspx to build your sites. Note: While not a prerequisite, a prior knowledge of SharePoint will help you get the most out of this topic.
  • Installing, discusses the prerequisite hardware and software requirements to deploy Commerce Server 10. You will do a complete deployment yourself.
  • Every minute an online shop is down costs money. This topic Managing and Monitoring concentrates on keeping a Commerce Server 10 installation running smoothly.
  • This topic, Staging will give you an understanding of an often neglected but essential part of Commerce Server 10. How will changes from the development environment reach the production environment? You will enjoy trying out a part of this process in the labs.
  • Who wants to build an insecure shop? This topic, Security will give you an understanding of some of the security issues to be considered with Commerce Server 10.
  • Most online shops have to integrate into the rest of the business infrastructure. In this topic Connecting to Biztalk, you will integrate Commerce Server and BizTalk.
  • The lab for our topic Using the Partner SDK has proved to be our most popular lab. Here you will add auditing functionality to the business managers, and discover a hidden feature in Azman.
  • A thorough understanding of the core systems is essential even with the entity model. The second day is spent giving a thorough grounding in the subsystems with the modules on the Catalog, Inventory, Profile, Order and Marketing Systems as well as caching and the infamous pipelines.
  • Note: Some labs may be omitted to allow more time for advanced topics.
