DotNetNuke World Presentations

by Bruce Chapman on Sunday, October 14, 2012 11:25 PM

Well, the curtain has come down on yet another successful DotNetNuke conference, DotNetNuke World 2012 in Orlando, Florida.

This year I presented twice at the conference, participated in the new ‘Vendor Showcase’ and also presented at the Orlando DotNetNuke User Group the night prior to the conference starting.

I’d like to thank everyone who came to my sessions – it is gratifying to speak to a mostly-full room, and in the case of the ODUG meeting, a crowd that overfilled the room and spilled down the hallway.   I had a lot of good feedback from people and it was great to meet a lot of customers and colleagues, sometimes for the first time, sometimes to catch up again.

I'd also like to thank PowerDnn for a fantastic giveaway competition that really captured a lot of attention. It was the choice of a Lamborghini rental for the day, or $1000 in cash. Needless to say, I put my entry in. Well, I don't want to talk about the outcome too much more, but just wanted to post this photo:


The whole competition gave me a good chance to talk to Jeff and Tony from PowerDNN – they have just launched a new data centre in Brisbane, just down the road from me (when I’m home!) and have confirmed their commitment to helping us grow the South East Queensland DotNetNuke User Group (SEQDUG).  

As usual, the best part about the entire conference was the buzz, friendliness and sheer fun the whole event was.  It passes in a blur of activity, late nights and early mornings and always leaves everyone exhausted but keen to return the next year.  And that describes my feelings exactly!

Here are the slides that I have presented:

Advanced Google Analytics for DotNetNuke Social Websites

This presentation was all about showing attendees how the social features in DotNetNuke aren't able to be captured by the traditional pageview model, and how to use Analytics Events to capture the data

Developing Mobile Applications for DotNetNuke

In this presentation, I showed a new DotNetNuke dashboard mobile application that has been built in Windows Phone 7. I covered DotNetNuke services, Authentication and how to utilise your DotNetNuke web application as a cloud-based datastore to a mobile device.

Url Best Practices for Editors, Administrators and Developers

This was my Orlando DotNetNuke User Group (ODUG) presentation. In this topic I covered the use of links inside a site, how to structure links so that external links not only get created, but how they maximise the SEO value. I also talked about selection criteria for modules that use the right urls, and how to build modules so that you can maximise your Url strategy.

UPDATE : The video of this talk has been posted online:
