Simple 10-Step Testing for DNN Platform Release Candidates

Simple 10-Step Testing for DNN Platform Release Candidates
A welcome change of recent is the introduction of the Release Candidate (RC) into the new release cycle for DNN Platform.  Having early access to an upcoming RC gives everyone valuable insight into what is coming in the official release.  Not only do we get a chance to learn and prepare for use of the new version within our own test environments and those of our clients, but we also have a chance to participate in community-wide testing and provide valuable feedback.  This is an area in which the Technology Ecosystem Advisory Group could really use your help.  The more people that test each Release Candidate, the greater the stability and quality of the platform.

Discover All Sorts Of Open Source DNN Community Goodness
Let's face it, sometimes it is very hard to keep up with everything that is going on in this vibrant DNN Community!  People are so freakin' creative and I often think they have way too much free time on their hands in order to pull off some of the amazing accomplishments they do!  I am kidding about the "free time" of course.  I just know that within each and every DNN Community member, there is a unique and valued talent waiting to be discovered and shared.  That is why we proudly present nvQuickPulse.

Paving The Way For A Web Components Based DNN Future

Paving The Way For A Web Components Based DNN Future

Are you tired of JavaScript Framework Churn? Perhaps some of my latest development efforts will help brighten your day and improve your outlook for future DNN development possibilities. While this project is in the early stages, I am so excited about it and wanted to go ahead and share what I am working on for the DNN community. I believe this contribution will have similar, if not greater, impact to future DNN development as some of my previous open source contributions.

What Happens When a Blog Engine Tries to Put on Big-Boy Pants

What Happens When a Blog Engine Tries to Put on Big-Boy Pants

For me and my team at nvisionative we have never been tied to any one CMS. I have always said, our business does not rely on DNN. I realize this may come as a surprise to some of you in the DNN community, but it’s true. Rather than forcing everyone into one toolset, we focus on building solid solutions for our clients. To do that, we keep an open mind and use the right tool for the job. That said, when it makes sense, we do in fact choose DNN. However, there are times when we don’t have a choice in the matter and we are forced to use tools that are mandated by our client or are inherited from an existing client implementation. Lo and behold, sometimes (more times than we’d like to admit) those tools include WordPress.

DNN Archive Releases, OSS, and Answering the Call

DNN Archive Releases, OSS, and Answering the Call

If you’ve been paying attention you know that DNN Corp recently released the DNN archives to the community on GitHub.  However, those archives were missing releases and I was one of the first to ask for updates to the new archives. As DNN has been focusing more on empowering the DNN Community, I took this an opportunity to activate and take them up on that offer.  The end result is a re-release of the DNN archives on GitHub from DNN 9.x all the way back to the beginning with 1.x.
