DNN 9 and the Future of the DNN Platform

Community Logo

Two years ago, we began a discussion in the community about how to move the DNN platform forward.  Microsoft was hard at work on ASP.Net vNext, which was later renamed to ASP.Net Core.  At the time, I made the case for DNN making a radical departure from the Web Forms architecture that is the foundation of DNN today.  That new platform, DNN neXt, would have been built on .Net Core and would have benefited from much of the work the ASP.Net team was doing to modernize and cleanup .Net.

DNN Completes the Move to GitHub

DNN-OctocatOpen Source project hosting has seen many changes in the last 15 years.  When DNN first started, we had few options for hosting our source code and packaged releases.  We have been around long enough to see sites like GotDotNet, Google Code and others come and go.  Finding a reliable project host is an ongoing challenge. Even after you find a host, you need to be vigilant to ensure the host continues to offer the features and support you need for your project and your community.

And the Winner Is…

big-checkThe DNN 8 Module Challenge has come to a close and I am happy to say that we had some great modules submitted this year.  Not only did the entries provide great examples of how to build MVC and SPA modules for DNN 8, but we also had entries which pushed the boundaries on using tools and libraries like Bower, Gulp, React, Angular and others.  We had modules submitted by teams and individuals, and we even had a module submitted by a first time developer.

I want to congratulate each of our winners on a job well done.  The voting was close in each category and it was often just one or two details which separated the winners from the other entries.

Announcing the DNN Documentation Center

DocCenter

Microsoft has always been viewed as a developer friendly company.  Almost every product they build is extensible and includes in-depth documentation. All of this documentation is maintained in the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN), which is one of the premiere developer documentation centers in the world.

Since DNN was first created, thousands of pages of documentation and hundreds of videos have been created. Much of this documentation is available at various locations on DNNSoftware.com and in a few external sites. Documentation is available as help files, pdfs, wiki articles, blog posts, videos and PowerPoint slide-decks. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to find the information you are looking for, and when you do find it, it is not always clear if the documentation is up to date.

Since we released the Beta in December, the team has been hard at work closing out issues and generally working to ensure a solid, stable DNN 8 release.  In that time we have fixed 113 issues.  As a result we feel that DNN 8 is almost ready to go.

Extending the DNN 8 Module Challenge

Code2In October I announced the DNN 8 Module Challenge.  I challenged DNN developers to create modern DNN 8 modules using the new DNN 8 MVC and SPA module types. While I know that some developers were able to get started right away, others were waiting for new module templates to aid in building their modules.  Other developers were also waiting on certain platform features to be completed in order to build their modules. Our goal with the contest is to make it as easy as possible for developers to participate and to encourage development of modules that really show off the power of the DNN platform.

DNN 8 Beta Released

Community LogoDNN 8 has reached another major milestone. After more than 9 months of development, I am pleased to announce that DNN 8 Beta has been released.  In the month since DNN 8 CTP 7 was released, the team has spent a lot of time reviewing the features planned for DNN 8 and working to stabilize the release.

DNN 8 has a long list of features.  Since the beginning we have been very focused on delivering valuable features that address key developer challenges.  With the introduction of MVC and SPA module types, DNN 8 will provide more options for developers, and allow them to build modules using their .Net framework of choice.  In addition, we have been working to provide additional authentication options for developers using the DNN Service Framework.
