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.

DNN vNext as a Progressive Web App (PWA) on ASP.NET Core

Have you been following along with the Progressive Web App discussion?  There is a lot of value in leveraging this modern technology. In this blog I’m going to detail the steps I took to update the DNN vNext project to run as a Progressive Web App (PWA) and what that means for the future of DNN.

Implementing "Speedbumps" in DNN

Implementing "Speedbumps" in DNN
Have you ever been asked to implement a “speedbump” on a client website and been like WHAAA???  LOL!  The first time I heard this phrase, I had no clue what the heck is our client was talking about and worse yet, I was too ashamed to just come out and ask them at first!  :)  After doing some searching around, thanks to our friend Google, I got some ideas as to what they might have been asking, so I mustered up the courage to just fall on my sword and let them know we were clueless to the full meaning of their "speedbump" request.  Perhaps you have found yourself in the same boat and landed on this blog post.
