Greetings from CMS Expo!

The "DNN Guy" checks out the "competition"

The 7th annual CMS Expo began this morning at the Hotel Orrington in Evanston, although the fun began last night at our Chicago DotNetNuke User Group meeting, also held here. I'll tell you what happened last night, and what's in store for the Expo.

Well, I guess Evanston is a tough place to get too, if the quantity of users at our Users Group meeting is any indication. The core group of members had a very informative discussion about DNN Corporation, the user group, DNN technology, Responsive design, and our individual companies.

We discussed DNN Pro Edition. It makes sense for companies that require a software agreement and a sense of assurance. But technically, the code is basically Community Edition with a couple modules.  For so many companies, that will do the trick, and save them money. We wholeheartedly support that philosophy.

Scott talked about Southern Fried DNN, the Charlotte DNN Conference last month. He taught on the training day and gave a session Saturday. Visit to see what Scott does. We're all jealous of these guys, because they have a great user group community.

Phil showed a very neat way to show tables. These tables rearrange when they are displayed on different devices, and in a very logical way. Watch for that presentation on

Today and the next two days promise some interesting things. This year, they've finally included WordPress. In fact, I'll be attending a talk today called "WordPress IS a CMS, Dammit!" a title that perfectly describes WordPress community frustration at the CMS community prevalent opinion. We'll see if they prove their assertion.

I'm also here as the DNN Guy. DNN Corporate is suspiciously absent, given the philosophy espoused by in the founder's blog Sunday. So I'm making myself available to anybody interested in knowing a little more, and I've already met several people in that category. 

Lunch calls, so I'll write a bit more after I attend a few more sessions.
