Having worked for Episerver for nearly 11 years before venturing out on my own, naturally puts both the company, it's great team of dedicated employees and it's products very close to my heart and skillset.
My expert level skills is around Episerver CMS, Episerver Find and many, many of the add-ons and related products. When it comes to Commerce, I wouldn't consider myself an expert - but I have worked with Episerver Commerce, tweaked it and optimized in multiple cases.
Among other things, I worked on setting up the Episerver TestDrive on Microsoft AppSource - which consists of a tweaked Commerce site with a guided tour taking you through it.

When integrating external content into Episerver, a classic dilemma is whether you should replicate it in, or setup a content provider to pull it in real-time. As part of the Digizuite Integration I have once again given some thought to the dilemma - and here are some pro's and cons.
