DNN Hangout - August 2015 - Understanding the DNN Platform Source Code

Understanding the DNN Platform Source Code

Every now and again, we’ll throw in a special episode of DNN Hangout, where we talk about something that we believe will be extra beneficial to the community.  Sometimes this will have one or more special guests attached to it, sometimes it won’t.  In this special episode, Joe Brinkman and I walk through the source code of DNN platform.  It’s grown so much over the years that we realize just how intimidating it can be to someone.  After watching this hangout, that intimidation should be at a minimum.

DNN Hangout - August 2015 - Introducing Aricie’s PortalKeeper Module

Jean-Sylvain Boige introduces us to PortalKeeper by Aricie

It’s always exciting for me to meet someone in the DNN community that I haven’t met before.  This hangout is one of those times.  In this hangout, we speak with Jess (or Jean-Sylvain Boige) of Aricie.  He’s the CTO of Aricie and the genius mind behind the module for DNN called PortalKeeper.  I must admit, I didn’t know anything about PortalKeeper before this hangout, but rest assured… this is going to be a pretty standard tool of mine for current and future projects.  If you’ve gotten even the beginnings of a technical bone in your body, you’re sure to geek-out just like I did!

Should You Accept That LinkedIn Connection Request?

Bruce Lee:

In most social networks, connecting with someone else can feel like a personal decision.  After all, if you accept a friend request in Facebook, you’ve just given access to all of your “private” images and updates.  They’ll see that embarrassing photo of you at the beach.  {GASP!}  This has trained us to be weary of who we allow to be “connected” with us online.  So much so that some people have private Twitter accounts.  (Something that I have yet to understand.)
