Targeting DNN Versions

Author: DNN Chicago

There are a number of things that change when you progress from developing a module just for yourself to developing modules for a wider audience. DNN has a ton of features to make life easier for you and to protect the user on the other side. This is vital because you have no idea where the module will be installed. Like the version of DNN your module will be running on, other extensions that have been installed or the selected theme. In this post I'll delve into some of the factors influencing the decision which DNN version to target with your extension.

NuGet is the bane of my existence

Author: DNN Chicago

I have said on many an occasion. And I'll readily admit that in part this is just an old coder's frustration with a new technology. One of the many "get off my lawn" moments I've gone through. But like it or not, NuGet is here to stay and in our Microsoft-oriented world it is the standard way to resolve references. Before we had NuGet we'd do this "manually". So before I go any deeper into this, let's first explore what the breadth of the problem is and how we used to do this in the old days. You know, when telephones were still attached to a wall.

Basic Git Flow For Making Open Source Contributions on GitHub

Author: DNN Chicago

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.

Why EVERY site should be secured by HTTPS

Author: DNN Chicago

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.

The super simple guide to Github

Author: DNN Chicago

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!

A New Website for DNN Summit

Author: DNN Chicago

Today we launched the new DNN Summit website!!! 

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".

Forums in the late 2010s

Author: DNN Chicago

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).

Wait. It’s over already?

Author: DNN Chicago

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.

Securing Your Non-Azure Website Using Let’s Encrypt

Author: DNN Chicago

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.

DNN-Connect 2019 Recap: The Next Phase of Our Journey

Author: DNN Chicago

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.
