One year in at DotNetNuke Corporation

While I’ve been in the ecosystem for DotNetNuke since the beginning, I wasn’t employed by DNN Corp until 3/1/2010. So today marks the anniversary of my first day here. It’s been a heck of a year! I can’t even begin to list off all the things that have happened in the past year, but I will try to list off a few of them (with links to the obligatory blog post where appropriate).


We started a DotNetNuke User Group here in the Bay Area, and while we haven’t had as many events as we should, we have another one coming up on 3/16/2011 here at the DotNetNuke Headquarters.


Prior to 2010 I had never been to Canada, during 2010 I went twice. I went to Toronto for some onsite custom DotNetNuke Training and then I went to Vancouver for a week to spend time at the engineering office up there.

Custom Module Development Templates

I released a couple of module development templates to make doing things in DotNetNuke easier! I even had multiple releases and released an MSBuild version as well. If you aren’t using these for your module development, you should be!

Free DotNetNuke Training

On top of the paid training options for DotNetNuke we released a number of free webinars and videos for DotNetNuke training.

St. Louis Hackathon/Day of .Net

In August I went back to St. Louis to present at the DotNetNuke Hackathon and Day of .NET events.

Vegas Baby

If you missed out on DotNetNuke Connections in Vegas you missed out on yet another good time! It was a great conference and even better socializing!

Grow that Mo

In November the two DNN offices jumped on the Movember bandwagon and raised money for cancer charities. We raised over $6k and had a bunch of mustaches running around the office. I ended up having my head shaved due to mistakenly offering to shave my head if I hit $1k in donations!


C# is coming to DotNetNuke

In case you missed the biggest announcement (yesterday) for DotNetNuke 6.0 we’re moving away from VB.NET and will be releasing in C#, check out Shaun’s blog post about that.


So that definitely isn’t all that has gone on here at DotNetNuke Corporation in the past year, we’ve grown quite a bit, and lots of new and familiar faces are around now. Here’s to hoping I get to write another post like this 366 days from now!
