    We will create a new DXA site in this hands-on workshop that will cover everything you need to know to get started with creating a website with the DXA 1.7 (Digital Experience Accelerator) framework.  We will start with the philosophy and architecture of a typical DXA application, and then we will create a new website using standard HTML and the DXA Building Blocks.  We’ll advise you how to tune and customize the system to take advantage of the framework and capabilities.  The workshop will use SDL Web 8.5 and DXA 1.7.  It assumes you have basic knowledge about .Net MVC Web Applications.
