DotNetNuke Form Patterns and You! 6.x or 7.x? by Mitchel Sellers
As a developer of hundreds of custom DotNetNuke extensions I have to say one of my favorite enhancements to the DotNetNuke platform over the last few years was the inclusion of the new DotNetNuke Form Pattern that was part of the 6.x release. By incorporating a consistent design pattern it became trivial for extension developers to build modules that had similar UI patterns and would thus have consistently styled applications. By doing this it is possible to make the understanding of flow within your applications easier as you are leverage a UI style that more similarly matches that of the platform itself. However, as with any new feature it hasn't came without a few "bumps" in the road. There were a few changes between 6.x and 7.x that have caused a bit of a problem for those of us that have already adopted the patterns, or those that might. In this post we will look at these differences and the one small change that you can make for a seamless experience regardless of if you are targeting 6.x or 7.x!

ASP.NET Web Forms Model Binding – My Favorite ASP.NET 4.5 Feature by Mitchel Sellers
I have been working on this blog posting for over 2-3 weeks, by far one of the longest writes of any posting that I’ve done in the past. The reason for this is that I’m writing about a concept that you should already be aware of which is the inclusion of Model Binding Support for Web Forms in ASP.NET 4.5. You can find a number of resources out there that talk about this, including this amazing tutorial series. So why do I feel the need to spend so much of my time writing about this feature? Well read on to find out!

Last week I was a trainer and a speaker at the Southern Fried DotNetNuke event that was held in Charlotte, NC. This event was fantastic with a day of optional training on Friday and a series of sessions on Saturday in the format of a regular Code Camp event. As I promised the attendees of my sessions I would be posting information and assets from these presentations here on this blog. This posting is an overall aggregate with information on the two sessions and trainings, future blog postings will expand on the information contained within.
