Last week, Chris Hammond
announced that the schedule for DotNetNuke Connections
had been posted and that we would soon begin offering you some additional insight into the speakers and sessions at this year’s conference. Today, we discuss DotNetNuke Connections
with Mitchel Sellers
who is presenting two sessions at the conference this November in Las Vegas.
DotNetNuke Performance: Diagnosing Problems
Demystifying DotNetNuke 5 Extension Development
Q How long have you been part of the DotNetNuke community?
A. About 4 years or so.
Q. What area of DotNetNuke do you specialize in?
A. Development and performance optimization.
Q. Why are you looking forward to DotNetNuke Connections '10?
A. Every year the conference has gotten better, the social event is always something to look forward to as well. But the best part is getting to meet up with all of the other people in the community that we don't always get to see/meet/hear.
Q. What other conferences have you attended this year? What makes DevConnections different?
A. I have attended DevLink, Iowa Code Camp, and will be attending Day of DotNetNuke in Chicago. DevConnections is different because of the specific DNN content yet the ability to attend other .NET topics as needed.
Q. Why should people consider attending your sessions?
A. Over the years I have spent a lot of time working with DotNetNuke tweaking sites for the best performance and developing custom modules for customers. During this time I have gone through a lot of hard-knock situations and learned a lot. My sessions are really a good way for attendees to avoid a lot of the guess-and-check processes and get true results and built top quality DotNetNuke solutions.
Q. Any sessions in the concurrent tracks at DevConnections you're particularly interested in attending?
A. I will be attending some Silverlight sessions on the other tracks, simply for "day job" related items.
Q. Any specific sights, shows, or events that you plan to make time for while in Las Vegas this fall?
A. Blue Man Group - I've been there before, but you can't go wrong. I'll most likely get to a few other shows as well.
Q. What is one thing you wished everyone knew about DotNetNuke?
A. It really is a powerful tool, can be fast, and is easy to use.
Q. What is the DotNetNuke web site you’re most proud of?
A. That is tough, but one of my recent sites came together really nice http://www.dmps.k12.ia.us
