Jim Duffy Presents DotNetNuke
Wednesday, February 11, 2004
Tonight at the TRINUG meeting Jim Duffy presented DotNetNule, a free content management portal.
A walk through in how simply it is to setup and administer a DotNetNuke portal. The Triangle .Net User Group site has recently been converted over. The framework provides a nice way to separate the site administration activities from the content entry/update roles.
One of the cool thing that Jim went on to discuss was the creation of your own modules for use within the portal framework. While the main portal code is in VB, you are able to use any .Net language to extend the portal to meet your needs, with the benefit of having built in security and administrative capabilities. Jim used DotNetNuke for his corporate website www.takenote.com. The coolest thing is that you can have info from the site automatically syndicated in RSS for aggregator consumption!
A new version 2.0 is apparently on it's way in the new future with skins and a new data provider model.
Tonight's meeting sponsor was SyncFusion who provided pizza and brought some great door prizes and product samples.
