DNN Round Up #1: archi-diagram, IContainer, localizable Chagoury, UDT’s death and resurrection and more.

I worked in broadcasting and journalism long before I got involved in technology and it is another passion of mine. While my love for DNN progressively increased, I would devour as much information as I could find. In the DNN 2.X days, most of the available information was at the asp.net forums where at first I was a lurker, then a question flooder and finally even became a moderator (I still am). I always wanted to get involved with DNN and my sources of information have been sprouting (and also dwindling) around. One of my favorites was Seablick’s DNN Friday, but it is lagging behind. The problem is that a set deadline for your publication will almost surely be missed when business endeavors that pay the bills get in the way.

Arguably, a huge number of community members are blogging about DNN and there’s no single comprehensive resource. Fortunately, that is bound to change and to start the path I am getting my DNN paws trained again to write read and write about DotNetNuke.

As a self-trained IT/Dev pro I have learnt that setting too high a goal will only doom my commitment. Therefore I’ve made a compromise with myself. I will only publish this round up when material is enough to make it worthwhile reading. Obviously, I have chosen the easiest and most informal way to publish it. It may transmogrify into a whole new animal in time, but I am satisfied to do it in this way, for now. Without any further ado, let’s start DNN Round Up #1.

DNN architecture diagram

- Ian Robinson updated the DotNetNuke Architecture Diagram (left) for a presentation of his own. A lot of the current documentation needs an overhaul and this will be tackled in the coming weeks, as soon as I get off some duties I have pending. You know, the kind of duty that pays the bills.

- Remco Ros wrote Castle Windsor as component container for DotNetNuke, a blog post about his implementation of DotNetNuke 5.X’s IContainer interface. He obtained comments from DNN’s Cathal, Charles and Antonio. Somehow Cathal finds all these posts before I do and even comments on them by the time I am reading them. I wonder if it has anything to do with his location. Going back to Remco, he had previously written about the MVP pattern in his blog.

Antonio Chagoury- Antonio Chagoury (pictured left) answers 7 questions from Seablick’s Tom Kraak. Asides from the .net languages, he claims to be proficient in 5 other including my mother tongue (Spanish) ¡Bien hecho Antonio!

- Dotnetnuke Form and List, the new incarnation of the UDT module (lead by Stefan Cullman), has been released. UDT is no longer UDT and the project has been renamed to, what else, Form and List. You can read more about that release here.

- MyLifeBBS posted a nice tutorial for those who want to customize the Login Page. How to modify DotNetNuke Login Page? The Easy Way explains the steps necessary to change the Login Page of DNN portals to match their skins, but it seems to be an unfinished tutorial in the works.

- Core Team member Chris Hammond continues his podcast career with show # 3 of DNNVoice which, according to Chris’ post on his asp.net blog, includes “upcoming DNN events, a review of a DNN User Group meeting in Orlando, blogging on DNN, and all the DNN activity on Twitter lately”.
