Intro to DotNetNuke
In this session I will give an introduction to DNN and the way it operates. We'll also look at a few demo sites and discuss their operation. Finally we will talk about DNN in comparison to other website tools like WordPress and Drupal and deal directly, honestly and rabidly with the differences between each and their relative strengths and weaknesses.
DotNetNuke is the leading open source content management system for the Windows Server platform. More importantly it is an extremely powerful and secure framework on which to build robust websites. And yes, the world of open source can exist and even thrive within the Microsoft environment. From the granular security model which allow system administrators to precisely define website permissions at the site, page or module level to the rich market of third party themes and add-ons, DNN offers a mature environment that rivals or surpasses those on other platforms.
