DNNCon Final Call for Speakers

DNNCon Banner

One of the great aspects of being an Open Source platform is that we have an entire community of people who love helping their fellow community members.  This is one of the aspects of DNN that has attracted a lot of people to the platform and the community over the last decade.  One of the best ways to help others is by sharing your knowledge of DNN, ASP.Net and even Microsoft Azure. Imagine how awesome it would be to help educate other community members while also getting to spend some time at a warm Florida beach in the middle of Winter. Instead of shoveling the sidewalk, you could be relaxing in the sun.

A Brave New World

Community puzzleIf you could add one feature to DNN what would it be? What bug is at the top of your wish list that you would like to get fixed in the next release? Is there some documentation you would like to see improved? Do you ever wonder why certain decisions are made for the platform or the community? What if I said that you can add that feature, or get that bug fixed, or help improve the documentation?

Over the last 2 weeks I have had a chance to speak to a lot of community members. I heard over and over again that people want to have more visibility into what is happening with the project.  People want to help in developing the platform. People want to get involved to help solve many of the community and platform problems, both big and little. In short people want to participate in the development and management of the platform and community.

What Does It Mean To Be Open Source?

open-source

Over the last 12 years I have participated in many discussions about what it means to be Open Source. Is it enough that you follow the OSI definition of Open Source? Do you need to provide access to a public roadmap or offer nightly builds? Do you need to accept contributions, both large and small, to the core code base? Are there certain values your project and community should follow?  All of these are great questions, many of which I discussed in my post 7 years ago on Re-defining Open Source.

Passing Of The Baton As DNN Moves To The Next Chapter

nextchapter

In any endeavor in life and in business, you face ups and downs. Some things are easy, some things are extremely difficult, and some fall somewhere along that spectrum. This is definitely one of the more difficult blog posts I have had to write. I regret to inform you that the company and Shaun Walker have decided to part ways.

Get Involved in Open Source

As an Open Source project, the community plays a special role in the development of the platform. Often some of the best feature ideas originate with a community member.  Community members also provide a lot of feedback on issues that were not caught by our QA team.  Recently, the project has been getting more and more code contributions which are also an important part of any Open Source project.

Community Makes Huge Impact on DNN 7.3

Thank-YouAs an open source project, DNN relies on our community to help improve the product. In the past year we have placed renewed emphasis on getting the community involved in core platform development.  Whether it is by fixing small bugs which may have special significance to a community member, or by submitting major platform enhancements, the community is really starting to embrace this new role.
