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 - 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 - 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 - April 2015 - Meet the DNN-Connect Association

We’ve been doing the DNN Hangout for almost a year now.  The primary focus for each hangout is to help the community know what’s going on in the community and the overall ecosystem.  This hangout seems to have captured that focus far better than any prior.  We invited the founding members of the DNN-Connect Association: Peter Donker, Philipp Becker, and Vicenç Masanas.  In this hangout, we learn more about the founders, what DNN-Connect is, and about the very near DNN-Connect 2015 event.

DNN Hangout - March 2015 - Basics of DNN and Microsoft Azure

This month, we talk to our first Microsoft employee, Jared Shockley.  Interestingly enough, he wasn’t technically a Microsoft employee when we originally scheduled him to appear as a guest speaker.  We spoke to Jared about how he found DNN, what it was and is like to work for Microsoft (since this is his second time with the company), and we dive into some of the first things you need to know before starting with Microsoft Azure. 

DNN Hangout - February 2015 - Discussing the DNN 7.4 Release

With DNN 7.4 coming out on our scheduled broadcast of this month’s DNN Hangout, it only made sense for us to switch things around and talk about the release.  There are several nuggets of goodness that the community will enjoy in 7.4.  We spent this entire DNN Hangout talking about what went into the latest DNN release and what it means to you.

DNN Hangout - January 2014 - Beautiful DNN Sites & SaaS in DNN

DNN Hangout with Inno Software (Aaron & Dylan Lopez)

One of my favorite things about the DNN community is meeting new people and learning about what they’re doing with DNN.  I first stumbled across Aaron Lopez a few years ago when he submitted himself for the first DNN Super Fan Contest.  Unfortunately, he didn’t win, but his entry was good enough for me to remember who he was.  Since then, he has been contributing to the DNN community a lot through twitter.  Perhaps other places as well, but that’s where I see him.  One day, he announced a new site that their company released and I couldn’t tell it was DNN.  I had to learn more.  This led to him publishing a blog on the topic and then he and his brother volunteered to come on the show to talk about some of the things they’ve learned with DNN.
