First CMS User Group Meeting in London

London DotNetNuke User Group

It may surprise you to hear that in such a populated region such as London to hear that there has never been a DotNetNuke user group there.  That’s right!  There isn’t an area in the United Kingdom that is considered to be more metropolitan.  It’s also considered to be a leading global city in numerous areas such as arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, research and development, and more.  Yet DNN hasn’t reached their techie scene.  That’s changing!  The very first user group meeting that focuses on DNN will be held there in just a couple of short weeks.


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… 


Ride with Chris Hammond and I After DotNetNuke World 2012

Will Strohl

Chris Hammond just announced that there will be an organized ride for anyone that wants to show up Saturday morning following DNN World.  It will be an early ride to ensure that we get some good weather and that we don’t interfere with anyone’s checkout times or plans.  Don’t worry if you are not a pro rider or don’t have your own gear.  We have that covered.  Chris found a bike rental place that will being all the gear you want.  Unfortunately, we won’t be able to pick up the bill.  Sorry.


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 Contest 2012 Voting is Open

DotNetNuke SUPER Fan Contest

Well, it’s finally here.  The DotNetNuke SUPER Fan Contest entries have been collected.  They have been reviewed.  They have been sorted.  And they have been put together for you to view, share, comment, and VOTE on!  Like last year, we have had some excellent entries.  I was personally excited to see that most of the entries this year were videos.  I don’t know about you, but I love videos!  They are a lot of work, but they are so much more fun to look at.  Without any further babbling, let’s get to the point…


Media Module Released with Social Integration and Now in C#

DotNetNuke Media Module

I couldn’t believe it when I saw it, but the last official release of the Media Module for DotNetNuke was in January of this year!  That is way too long for this module to go without having a release.  Therefore, I am very excited to get this release out the door, and even more excited about the nature of the updates that can be found in this release.


Session Resources from Tampa, West Palm Beach, and Southwest Florida Code Camp 2012

Will Strohl presenting at FLA.Net West Palm Beach User Group

If you weren’t aware, I just visited a few events in Florida to spread the word about DotNetNuke and DNN World 2012.  The events included Tampa#, FLA.Net West Palm Beach .Net, and the Southwest Florida Code Camp.  These events were all very cool.  The organizers did an outstanding job amidst a pending tropical storm and a hurricane, illness, and the always challenging logistics of a code camp.  There were 5 sessions in all, and in each of them, I promised resources from the session.  The wait is over…  Here are the resources from the sessions.


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. 


We Want YOU to be a DotNetNuke Sales Engineer

DotNetNuke Headquarters

What do San Francisco, year round perfect weather, delivering solutions advice, participating in community activity, and DotNetNuke have in common?  How about evangelizing DotNetNuke to the community through things like Twitter, blogs, Facebook, forums, exchange, and user groups?  Give up?  It’s the open position of Sales Engineer at DNN Corp.  That’s right…  We are still looking for just the right person in the DNN community to join the team!


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!
