Migrating Content from Sitecore to Umbraco CMS
We recently completed a project to transform a client's Content Management System (CMS) from the Sitecore platform to Umbraco. My part was to figure out how to migrate the content using a systematic, repeatable methodology. That's what we're going to cover off here to help you do the same. The constraint? We did not have access to any of the customised source code, only the d ...

Ever wished you could clone yourself? Or get some clarity and structure over your work?
For many people, business feels chaotic, unfocused and disorganised... and finding the time to work on the important projects seems almost impossible.
Think back to the last time you were deep in the zone—time flew by and the work flowed through you almost effortlessly. That’s how work should be.
Instead, information is scattered and responsibilities are vague. We try to cut through the chaos with endless meetings and micromanagement, but we just end up with less time and more stress.

Especially when a new major version of Umbraco is released and things have drastically changed.
