What the heck is Git and GitHub and how do I use them? There are so many open-source projects out there that I'd love to get involved in, but I don't have a clue how to Git what I need! Can you help?!?!? I have tried, but I have done nothing but embarrass myself and mess things up for others.
There are a lot of blog entries and articles in the Web about that topic, and it has been discussed a million times in the last years - esp. since Let's Encrypt entered the market and Google announced that using (or not using) HTTPS will affect site ranking. But still I find sites in the community that don't use it, so here I want to work out reasons for doing a change.
If you are not a coder by nature, Github is created by aliens. It first it makes no sense whatsoever. At a second glance it does not get better.
But I am Dutch, stubborn and determined to get involved. So, here is the Github for non-devs. No command lines. No power shell!
Since the launch of the website at DNN-Connect in Champery, there has been made quite some progress. More in detail will follow in seperate blogs. Today we had a meeting about what has been done and what is on the plate for next months. Replay of the meeting is on: https://fccdl.in/VhewA3UL3S
We held our monthly Awareness DNN Ecosystem Advisory Group meeting today. This month, we had a lot of activity around the new .org website initiative and documentation. There is so much to be "aware" this month. Don't miss out...
What’s that you say…? You don’t know that there is an open source, for-the-community, by-the-community effort underway to build and launch a community website for the DNN ecosystem? Well, now you know. And if you weren’t aware of that, you also may not be aware that YOU can help us. We need help of all types.
Hello folks! Today I’m happy to announce the release of a new auth provider for DNN Platform, that leverages all the power of Azure Active Directory B2C to any DNN based website. In short, this allows you to use a common and centralized identity service across all your customer facing applications, including the integration of your DNN website. And is Open Source and available on GitHub!
Last year the DNN MVP program was refreshed, turned over to the community, and a new batch of MVPs were nominated, voted on, and inducted into the community. Well, it’s that time again and the nominations for 2019 MVP are open. Get the details on how to nominate individuals for MVP in this blog!
DNN Summit 2020 is pleased to announce that Beth Massie will be the keynote speaker at the conference in February.
The look and feel changed slightly but the site is still very much in line with the DNN Summit brand. The beauty, though, is honestly "under the hood".
A few of us are discussing whether to move away from Slack as a collaboration tool in favor of the forums on the new community website. The two main drawbacks with Slack are (1) that it is "yet another tool" and therefore not immediately available to someone who wishes to join a conversation and (2) that old discussions fade away in time (and also not searchable etc).
The DNN Technology Ecosystem Advisory Group continues to meet on a weekly basis mapping out the future of DNN. The meeting agenda and minutes are shared here in blog entries so that everyone can see the progress being made and conversations occurring in the group.
This May 11th meeting we discussed about the 9.4.0 feedback, release planning, the Dnn upgrade service and more.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably know there was a DNN party earlier this month in Switzerland. The party was called DNN Connect and held in the Alpine mountain village of Champéry. As both the president of DNN Connect and the location manager for this event, I had quite a bit to do with proceedings this year. So the hole I dropped into when I waved the last attendee goodbye was immense. A severe case of the post-conference-blues. So besides picking up "regular work" again I've been staring at my monitor thinking "now what?" Well, time to reflect on this event.
In this session, we covered some of the new structured content solutions put in place to handle content on the new DNN Community website (https://dnncommunity.org).
If you’re in the developer community, and especially if you’re using or near any Azure conversations, you’ll continuously hear someone suggest Let’s Encrypt when it comes to securing your domain name. You know, that thing you do to allow your website to use the HTTPS protocol to get that lock in front of it in the web browser. I’ve tended to use NameCheap.com these days. They’re cheap like their name suggests, and they’re super easier to use. However, things just got even easier.
I’m not yet out of Europe. I’m sitting in my hotel room in Paris, enjoying the sounds of the city, just blocks away from the Eiffel Tower. I spent about an hour last night after midnight, exploring the city. I can’t help but reflect on what DNN has done for my life. It’s quite literally changed it, for the better, time and time again. As a minor and superficial example, over 15 years ago when I started with it, I never thought it would lead me to Switzerland or France, much less riding a scooter around the Eiffel Tower after midnight. I’ve come a long way over the years, and so has our community. We’ve all grown, and this conference marked an important new milestone in our mutual journey.
If I were to tell you that I am excited to make this announcement, it would be a severe understatement. I'm not going to draw it out, because you're already here... We have our own official website that's 100% for the community and 100% built and maintained by the community. We are completely in charge of our destiny as it pertains to community features and efforts.
What happens if one of the top developers within the ecosystem takes on the biggest challenge known to mankind?
It's done. Mandeeps has created his own e-commerce module. Tjep's digital agency has lots of experience with e-commerce (Magento, NopCommerce, Nbrightbuy/Openstore, HotCakes, SmithCart etc.) and created a review for you
As I look to the future with DNN.Platform we have an amazing platform, however, the platform has been growing for more than 15 years. With 15 years of growth, we have a number of things that have evolved that are "less than perfect' along the way. However, as we look to move into the future we have amazing things on the fore-front. .NET Core, Blazor, you name it we have a lot of new technologies that could be implemented that will help the platform grow. This growth, however, will not come without a few growing pains along the way, so it is worth discussing on a regular basis to keep everyone on the same page. One of these growing pains are continued API management which can cause upgrade issues, we want to plan ahead so let's dive into what is coming.
