AEM is a confusing road. Don’t travel it alone. And thanks to some Facebook groups out there you don’t have to. Some are bigger than others. Here is a list of some of the main groups that I found and participate in (I am sure that there are others but I only looked for English speaking). They are listed below in no particular order. The groups seem to run the gamut of job postings, issues devs/users are facing and asking for assistance with, and blog posts from various community people sharing helpful tips. Most of these groups are aimed at just bringing people together to discuss issues they are having and sharing insights. Most of them looked like they had some activity in the past year. Some are closed so you have to request membership. If you know of any others then shoot me an email, email@example.com. Good luck.
