Shaun Walker, Joe Brinkman, Richard Dumas and myself made the trek to Chicago this weekend for DotNetNuke’s first showing at CMSExpo (www.cmsexpo.net).
We weren’t really sure what to expect, as the conference was in the past a Joomla dominate conference, and while there isn’t anything wrong with that, it gave us some concerns. I must say though, all those concerns have been tossed out the Window. We had a great first day!
Lots of great conversation and discussions going on around the Hilton Orrington here in Evanston Illinois. We’ve had a lot of interest from folks asking about DotNetNuke, and lots of interest in how our ecosystem works.
We have even been able to rub elbows with a LOT of other CMSs, trading stories and ideas. Here’s a photo of Shaun Walker and Andrew Eddie of Joomla fame.
I’ve had my good camera with me as well, and as soon as I can find a cable I’ll get some of the photos transferred and uploaded. This is the first trip I’ve managed to go somewhere without taking a mini-usb cable or card reader so I can get to my photos!
Tomorrow we’ll be doing a full day of DotNetNuke sessions, if you’re at the conference stop by and say hello!
Chicago DotNetNuke User’s Group!
There was also a great Chicago DNN User’s Group meeting tonight here at the conference, I have photos from there as well.
