Adobe AEM Forms Training

The world’s premier AEM Forms training source.

Spring Training Sessions

All of our Adobe AEM Forms Training Classes are from 1 PM to 4 PM CST on Thursdays, except where noted. Feel free to contact us with questions.

  • March 9th AEM Guides Author: AEM Guides extends AEM by providing a full suite of visual XML Editing tools to create DITA topics and maps. DITA stands for Darwin Information Typing Architecture and is an open standard managed by OASIS, the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards. The DITA specification enables creation and management of topic-oriented information by defining a set of document types and a set of rules. AEM Guides enables us to easily create and collaborate on DITA assets with easy-to-use WYSIWYG online web editors. You will learn how to create DITA topics in this class.
  • March 16th AEM Guides Publish: This course focuses on creating DITA maps and publishing with AEM Guides. We will use Adobe's new Native PDF Publishing feature available in AEM Guides. You will learn how to create DITA maps and PDF templates in this class.
  • March 23rd Beginner Adaptive Forms: This course is for people who have never made an adaptive form or for people who just want to brush up on the fundamentals.
  • March 30th Advanced Adaptive Forms: This course is for experienced adaptive form authors. We will work with custom AEM client libaries to extend the design and functionality of our forms.
  • April 6th Themes and CSS: We will work with adaptive form themes and custom CSS selectors to control the look and feel of our forms. This course contains new material.
  • April 20th Adaptive Forms and Client Libraries (1 of 2): We will explore powerful and useful ways to expand the look and functionality of our adaptive forms with client libraries. If you are managing 10 or more adaptive forms, its a good idea to standardize the constants, functions, and CSS selectors into a common client library. This will enable you to share these items across your form library and easily make updates in one place that will propagate to all your forms.
  • April 27th Adaptive Forms and Client Libraries (2 of 2): We will continue our exploration of adaptive forms and client libraries.
