Description

A variety of positive change has recently taken place in the DNN ecosystem, code base, and underlying technology. Professional DNN7: Open Source .NET CMS Platform provides thorough coverage of all aspects of DNN including the latest features, API s, and updates. Looking to ramp up your knowledge of DNN7? If so, this book is for you! In this book, you'll learn how to install, configure, administer, develop modules, and much more! DNN has undergone a significant transformation over the past 4 years. The rebrand from DotNetNuke to DNN was just the start. The entire platform was migrated from VB to C#, the user interface was overhauled providing a much-improved user experience, dramatic improvements in functionality & performance were made including support for social collaboration and mobile devices. Recently API s that make modern, client-side development easy have been introduced as well. The underlying technology platform has migrated from ASP.NET 2.0 to ASP.NET 4.0 and DNN has also integrated Microsoft s Web API as the service framework at the core of the DNN solution. All of these enhancements provide developers with a lot of power in one solution. In previous Professional DotNetNuke books, DotNetNuke founder Shaun Walker authored a popular introductory chapter covering the evolution of the DNN open source project. He will expand this initial chapter with information about venture capital funding, commercialization, and software business insights which will be of interest to DNN enthusiasts, as well as technology entrepreneurs. DNN site builders, administrators, and developers will learn how to: * determine if they have met the installation requirements and install DNN * administer and host a DNN site and install and configure modules * manage users and keep a DNN installation secure * localize a DNN site for multiple languages * build custom DNN modules in C# using the model of separation of database, business logic, and presentation layers * customize the DNN look with skinning * make their site social with EVOQ
