OpenForce Las Vegas and My Sessions

Filed under: Elsewhere

OpenForce '08 Las Vegas

As the day of OpenForce event getting close, you probably have heard many people talking about the event from e-mail, blogs, user group meetings and so on. I have decided to join this flow of information to offer some content about my sessions in detail of what they're all about.

As I mentioned in my blog a few weeks back, this year at OpenForce, I will present two sessions targeting both developers and designers with the following topics:

DotNetNuke and Web Standards

This session is not just about DotNetNuke skinning, it’s about understanding web standards and many misconceptions out there in the community.

It will be helpful for designers to understand the ins and outs of DotNetNuke skinning engine and making your DNN sites work better using web standards approach. Therefore, attendingh this session will help developers to understand about all the buzz around web standards, (X)HTML and CSS. I think it will be a good start in improving your coding habits using web standards.

DotNetNuke Designers and Developers: Bridging the Gap

Have you ever bought a module and installed on your site but the look and feel just don’t blend into your site design? I have. And so have many people out there.

In this session, you will learn more about understanding the skinning engine and how all the styles work together. I think it's great to have both designers and developers to be in the same room and voice their own opinions about how things should work. Then we can all get the explanations in DotNetNuke skinning and module development.

Not just about bridging the gap, I will also talk about usability in software development and site design. If you'd like to shorten your gap in working together between designers and developers, increase productivity and making your modules user friendly, please join me at OpenForce in Las Vegas this November 10-13.

And this is not just it. I will be joining my good friend Chris Hammond along with DotNetNuke Corporation represented by Shaun Walker and Joe Brinkman to demonstrate Best Practices in DotNetNuke 5.0 on November 14. So stick around after the event is over to get the entire scoop of the new DotNetNuke 5.0

Hope to see you all there!
