The Future of DNN Speaks Razor - #6 - Mapping Needs to Technologies

I've written a few posts in my series The Future of DNN Speaks Razor explaining why many technologies are obsolete or going that way. I've also mentioned a few neat new things and in this post I will recommend what HTML-creation technology to use for what part of each application.

The Future of DNN Speaks Razor - #5 - WebAPI is great for Apps but not for Content

So I hope you're read my previous posts why you should migrate to Razor ASAP, what it is and why WebForms and ASP.net MVC are all dead. In this part I would like to delve into WebAPI, why It's awesome (especially for Apps) and why JSON-data is the future - especially combined with AngularJS or similar frameworks.

The Future of DNN Speaks Razor - #4 The Death of ASP.net MVC

You may have ready my article on the death of ASP.net WebForms. Along came MVC to provide a new solution. 

I'll explain why ASP.net MVC started well but was overtaken by the internet, and why the resulting good solution is still called MVC, even though it's not Model-View-Controller. Our goal is to focus our time and energy on the relevant parts and ignore the rest.

The Future of DNN Speaks Razor - #3 The Death of WebForms

As you might have heard, you have to migrate to Razor soon. Old-school developers have a hard time understanding why WebForms should be replaced, since it's worked to well for more than 10 years. So in this part 3 of my Series The Future of DNN Speaks Razor, I'll explain why WebForms turned out to be the wrong solution for web development and how the web changed to make WebForms' strengths obsolete.

The Future of DNN Speaks Razor - #2 But What is Razor?

As you might have heard, you have to migrate to Razor sooner than later, and the earlier you start, the more you will be creating future-compatible material today. This is part 2 of the Series The Future of DNN Speaks Razor. In this post I'll explain what Razor is, why it's not MVC (even though Razor is popular there as well) and more. Continue Reading »

The Future of DNN Speaks Razor - #1 You have to migrate now!

If you're an old-school DNN developer you're used to using ASP.net Forms - and you've developed tricks and techniques to compensate for various issues like clean SEO-HTML, JavaScript-Control-IDs and more. You've also implemented 3rd party controls (like a Telerik Grid) and spent hours of your time trying to compensate for certain shortcomings. Well, it turns out that this is not necessary any more - but most DNN-dudes don't realize this yet. Because the future is in absolute HTML control - using Razor. Let me tell you why, and how to get started. 

 This is part 1 of the Series The Future of DNN Speaks Razor. In this post I'll explain why you have to migrate now.

Professional QR-Codes (Responsive/Mobile Webs with DNN #5)

I used to believe QR codes were useless marketing gimmicks. Then I visited Japan in 2011 and QR codes were everywhere. You could see them on the walls of skyscrapers in Tokyo, on product packaging - and even on every tiny 1x3-inch ads in the magazines. Usually it's time to re-evaluate an opinion once you see that an large, smart group of people have an opposing point of view. So I re-evaluated.

In this blog I would like to tell you what the QR-Code is (in case you're new to it), why it's great, and how to make bad and good QR-codes (as it's easy to botch up).

ImageCompare with twentytwenty - lessons learned from a a No-Code DNN App

As you probably already know, I love no-server-code Apps. They allow admins/web designers to extend their DNN without requiring host-permissions and without risking the system stability. It also allows them to modify the extension with very basic capabilities. When creating the ImageCompare App I ran into some common issues that you will have as well - and would like to share the lessons-learned here. Continue Reading »
