10 Great WebCenter Sites Resources (FatWire)

10 Great WebCenter Sites Resources (FatWire)

WebCenter Sites – formerly FatWire – provides a series of outstanding capabilities around Web Experience Management. As people look to learn more about the technology, I felt that it would be helpful to gather some good resources that span the WebCenter Sites and FatWire brands, to get a consolidated list of helpful destinations for ongoing education.  Hope this is helpful!

Excellent post. It's funny how Oracle WebCenter just hasn't caught on yet. Everyone I know still references Fatwire.
