DNN 9 Appears to Be a Foundational Step Forward for the Future of DNN

DNN Corp is on the verge of releasing their latest DNN Platform release, version 9.0.0.  As a DNN MVP, I of course had to take a look around at the new stuff coming.  It’s still in the early stages though, so there are a few areas where the new updates have some smoothing out to do, but overall, the updates we’re seeing in version 9.0 are very nice.  In short, it’s a much more contemporary user experience for all involved – but a very important step in the right direction for the future of all DNN’ers.  Here’s my preview and insights after using DNN 9.0 for the first time – a pre-release version of DNN 9.0, that is.

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.

JS Rules! #2 - JS Modules / Apps are compatible across CMSes, Platforms and Versions!

The move to JavaScript applications has a profound impact on the concept of Platform Market-Share. A JavaScript App could run on any kind of host from Apache to Azure - so the only question of compatibility is if the hosting platform (like DNN) has an appropriate JSON-WebAPI to answer the requests of the JS-App. Oh brave new world…


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!
