DNN Hangout - March 2016 - DNN Community, User Groups, and MORE

David Poindexter is our guest in this month’s show.  David is the “GeekEO” of nvisionative.  I’ve interviewed him before in a Hotcakes Hangout, so you can get a lot of information about David and his company nvisionative there.  In this show though, we wanted to focus on community activities.  David and his fellow DNN’ers in the Charlotte, NC area have been doing great things for years now, so we wanted to pick his brain a bit, and then we finished things off with a very HUGE surprise for the DNN community.

DNN Hangout Special Episode - October 2015 - Building Modules Using the DNN 8 MVC Pattern

This is the second of two special episodes of the DNN Hangout, focused on helping DNN developers world-wide to learn more about the DNN 8 module development patterns.  This time, we walked through the MVC development pattern in DNN.  Following this hangout, you should have all of the knowledge you need to get started building your module for the DNN 8 Module Development Contest. 

DNN Hangout Special Episode - October 2015 - Building Modules Using the DNN 8 SPA Pattern

Every now and then, we throw in a special episode of DNN Hangout.  These special episodes are normally by request of you or another viewer in our audience.  This time, we didn’t need to wait for a prompt…  With the announcement of the DNN 8 module development contest, we already knew that people would be more than eager to get started… but before you can get started, you probably need a primer on just how to do that.  That’s the sole purpose of this hangout.

DNN Hangout - October 2015 - Getting Funky with the Form and List Module

This month is a hangout that I’m very proud to have been a part of.  For one reason, we announced an exciting DNN 8 module development contest.  A contest that will yield some people in the community a lot of cash.  The other reason, is that I have the honor of interviewing one of my favorite DNN brothers, Clint Patterson.  I think you’ll agree by the end of the hangout – if it takes you that long – that Clint is one of the smartest people in our community, and easily one of the most resourceful, passionate, and sincere members we have.  We are lucky to have him in our community.

DNN Hangout - September 2015 - Miscellaneous DNN News and Goodies

We had planned to speak with Phillip Becker this month, but he had a personal emergency he had to tend to.  We’ll get that rescheduled for you soon…  Go figure – we got the technical issues solved, and we loose the speaker.  This left us to get creative last minute and come up with a show for you – and we did.  In this show, we pull out some of our tips and tricks, in addition to bringing you the typical DNN news.

DNN Hangout - August 2015 - Introducing Aricie’s PortalKeeper Module

It’s always exciting for me to meet someone in the DNN community that I haven’t met before.  This hangout is one of those times.  In this hangout, we speak with Jess (or Jean-Sylvain Boige) of Aricie.  He’s the CTO of Aricie and the genius mind behind the module for DNN called PortalKeeper.  I must admit, I didn’t know anything about PortalKeeper before this hangout, but rest assured… this is going to be a pretty standard tool of mine for current and future projects.  If you’ve gotten even the beginnings of a technical bone in your body, you’re sure to geek-out just like I did!

DNN Hangout - May 2015 - Mandeeps Presents the New Live Forms Module

In this episode, we have the pleasure to speak with another veteran of the DNN community, Mandeep Singh.  Mandeep is the CEO and founder of Mandeeps, one of the most successful and seasoned vendors in the DNN ecosystem.  Like some of our previous guests, Mandeep has been using DNN since the beginning – and it shows.  He and his team have been extremely successful in building up a large following of customers due to their focus on usability and support.  As you’ll soon find out, they are raising the bar with the latest Live Forms release.

DNN Hangout - May 2015 - Managing Pull Requests with GitHub

Practice makes perfect, right?  At least that’s what “they” say.  In this case, we attempted to do a special edition DNN Hangout about DNN and GitHub.  Unfortunately, the first time we did it, we only showed a single screen.  So we did it again!  In this hangout, we focus on the process and steps that are performed when you contribute to the DNN GitHub project.  This will be helpful to not only understand the process, but also get some ideas for process in your own projects.
