Official DNN Training at DNNCon Palm Beach 2013 this October

Official DNN Training at DNNCon Palm Beach 2013

The most common issues and questions that I come across on a daily basis are very often a result of not knowing the DNN Platform as well as it could be known.  Like with any tool, the better you know it, how to manipulate it, the best techniques behind it, and so on… The better that you will be at using that tool.  The faster you will be at accomplishing tasks with the right solution.  Every solution is only as good as the people that run it.  This is your opportunity to walk away with the critical knowledge that is foundational to you being the best DNN resource that you can be – and have a blast with others in the DNN community at the same time.

DNNCon Conference Schedule

DNN Training

This year’s Official DNN Training event occurs the day before DNNCon on October 18, 2013.  There are still a couple of seats left for the free DNN on the Water event for those of you that register for training now!

The training event this year is focusing on fundamentals and best practices to help ensure that you leave being the most productive and knowledgeable DNN person in your organization.  We want you to leave being a confident DNN expert!

We have the best DNN trainers coming to West Palm Beach to instruct you in the 3 critical areas of DNN expertise: development, design, and content administration. 

Site & Content Administration

This is a perfect session for you if you’re not a designer or a developer.  If you’re a content editor or someone that runs the site as an Admin or Host (Superuser), you’re the perfect person to attend this class.  This class not only will teach you the techniques to be more productive, but you’ll also walk away with confidence in the areas below and more!

  1. Best practices for installation & upgrades
  2. Configure for performance fast
  3. Saving time with templates, modules, and skins
  4. Best practices for managing content


Development in DNN is just ASP.Net if you’re not aware.  Therefore, this course is designed to help you become a more effective DNN developer.  You definitely need to walk in with basic ASP.Net development knowledge.

Here are just a couple of the benefits of this course:

  1. Basics of DNN Architecture
  2. Best practices of your development environment
  3. How to save time writing code
  4. Form patterns and data access

Skinning (Design)

Designers using DNN only need to know how to do static designs.  If you have prior “template” or design experience with other platforms, you’ll be one step ahead of the game.  That being said, you just need to be proficient in HTML and CSS.  However, at the end of the day, you’ll know:

  1. Flexibility of design & branding on your site
  2. Best practices for skinning fast
  3. Integrating with DNN features
  4. Integrating third party libraries

See you there… Hopefully at DNN on the Water first!

Hey mgr: Thanks for the comment/question. The training day isn't free. It is currently $250 per person, but the rest of the event is free. You also would need to take care of your own travel of course. You can't beat the amount of value you'll get from a two day conference for that price. ;)
