Grow Your Website using Orchard

I’m just wrapping up a trip to Eastern Tennessee’s CodeStock 2011 (in Knoxville to be precise). While I was down here, I presented on the Orchard CMS. Both the conference and talk were great and while I’m never really satisfied with any of my talks, I have recorded it. It will soon be available on the CodeStock website for all to view at a later date and time. However, I know that Michael Neel is quite busy and it may take him another day (or week) to get everything up there. So, I’ve jumped the gun and published it up myself. Be sure to check it out:

Welcome to my new Website

After several years of promise, I’m finally ready to deliver my new website. This website is using a combination of technologies for the web. Much of the content is formatted to use HTML 5. The base site uses a content management system called Orchard. The current version of Orchard, Orchard 1.1, has been written using ASP.NET MVC 3 and the Razor view engine. Much like other CMS solutions, modules can be used to extend the functionality of the system. In my case, I decided to write a couple of modules (as well as a custom theme) to fit the needs of my website. These will be made available in the Orchard Gallery at a later date and time. I look at this new site as being a “work in progress.” I’ll plan on adding more content such as tutorials for Orchard and ASP.NET as well as small videos and opinions of various technologies. Be sure to check back often and subscribe to my blog feed.
