DotNetNuke SUPER Fan 2012 Results

DotNetNuke SUPER Fan Contest Ceremony

First of all, if you haven’t already heard, there was a contest.  The annual DotNetNuke SUPER Fan contest.  There was voting.  There were shenanigans.  There was all kinds of friendly competition.  And in the end, there was a winner.  That winner was awarded at DNN World 2012 in Orlando, Florida.  Not only was the contest a bunch of fun as usual, but the awards ceremony continues to be a blast since it’s held at the most prestigious and informative event about open source CMS in the world… 


Catch a DotNetNuke User Group Meeting in New York

DotNetNuke User Group Presentation in New York

This blog post isn’t about another one of my presentations.  Actually, I just wanted to let you know about a .Net user group that is having a DotNetNuke presentation given in the New York area on October 4, 2012.  DNN is rampant across the east coast of the US, but it’s not often I hear about a DNN presentation in the New York area.


DotNetNuke SUPER Fan 2012 Entry Time Extended

DotNetNuke SUPER Fan Contest

The deadline for DotNetNuke SUPER Fan Contest entries was this past Friday.  However, over the weekend, I received several requests to extend the deadline.  There were enough of you asking, that it is definitely worth the wait. 


Speaking at Southwest Florida Code Camp 2012

Southwest Florida Code Camp 2012

I’ve been to and spoken at every code camp in the state of Florida.  Each one has it’s own unique touch.  Some are known for their sheer size, others for their night time events, and more.  They are all really incredible.  We have some great leaders in the Florida .Net community.  However, only one code camp in the state has John Dunagan leading the charge.  No disrespect to anyone else, but John really is a community machine! 


Sneak Peak at the DotNetNuke SUPER Fan 2012 Prizes

DotNetNuke Awesome Cycles

When I announced this years DotNetNuke SUPER Fan contest, I promised that I would let you know what the prizes would look like.  If you don’t remember, we are taking the Awesome Cycles branding from our default installation template a step further and providing an AWESOME cycle and cycling gear to the top 3 places in the DotNetNuke SUPER Fan contest.  Winning is simple.  Do something amazing to prove that you are the world’s most passionate fan of DotNetNuke, and if the community agrees through voting, you win!


Visiting the Tampa C# User Group this Month

Tampa# User Group Meeting feature DotNetNuke

If you’ve never been there, you should know that Tampa Bay is an incredible city.  It may not look large depending on where you’re from, but it’s home to Busch Gardens, New York Yankees spring training, former Super Bowl Champion Buccaneers, NHL champion Lightning, the Rays, and it’s also where the best Punisher movie was filmed (in my opinion).  This city was also home to the first ever Day of DotNetNuke in 2009, which has since spread to Orlando, France, Canada, Chicago, and Charlotte.  I am very happy to be able to say that I am once again bringing DotNetNuke back to this great city in a meeting on August 23, 2012.

DotNetNuke Social Presentation in West Palm Beach

FLA.Net West Palm Beach User Group

I have to be honest…  I lived in Florida most of my life.  With one exception, the only times I’ve been to South Florida were to speak at code camps, or for wrestling tournaments.  (I was a pretty good wrestler when I was in high school.)  I am continuing the trend on August 28, 2012 when I come to the FLA.Net West Palm Beach .Net User Group to talk about DotNetNuke.  It’s very exciting for me to return to Florida in such a beautiful area, and I appreciate this user group welcoming me.


Day of DotNetNuke Charlotte 2012 Recap

Day of DotNetNuke Charlotte 2012

Unless you’ve literally been disconnected from the internet for the past 2 months, the Day of DotNetNuke Charlotte was held this past weekend.  After having the event in many notable places like Orlando, Tampa, Chicago, Paris, and Nova Scotia, Charlotte had its turn.  Not to be outdone, the sons and daughters of Charlotte did not disappoint.  If you missed it this year, you REALLY missed it…


Plan Now for Day of DotNetNuke Charlotte 2012

Day of DotNetNuke Charlotte 2012

Man… What a year.  Really.  A lot of things have happened, and it’s already 1/4 of the way over.  The best part is that we have a brand spanking new release of DotNetNuke that features social features for all editions of DNN in the 6.2 release.  That release is right around the corner, and DNN Corp folks have been busy blogging about 6.2 features quite regularly.  But wait, there’s more!  That’s right… This is my elevator pitch, or boardwalk pitch.  You choose.  Just don’t call me Billy Mays or Vince Shlomi.  Go ahead, look them up.  One was great but passed away, and the other.  Well, let’s just not go there.
