Looking for Feedback

As I mentioned yesterday I am starting to put the finishing touches on my "Professional DotNetNuke 5 Module Programming" book.  In talking with the publisher last night I found out that I need to get a bit more content into the book, so I have added a few development topics that I feel are very valuable, however, I wanted to reach out to the development community and ask, what else is needed?  Below is a listing of the current Table of Contents.


  1. Introduction to DotNetNuke and Resources
  2. Creating the Development Environment
  3. Underneath the DotNetNuke Hood
  4. Guestbook Module Requirements
  5. Starting the Module Creation Process
  6. Investigating DotNetNuke Components
  7. Creating the Module backend
  8. Creating the Localized Module Interface
  9. Packaging, Installing, and Debugging the Module
  10. Implementing Optional DotNetNuke Interfaces
  11. DotNetNuke Scheduled Tasks
  12. DotNetNuke User Controls
  13. Module Navigation and Communication
  14. Third-Party Components and Tools
  15. DotNetNuke, Modules and Ajax
  16. Creating DotNetNuke Skin Objects
  17. Creating DotNetNuke Authentication Providers

Appendix Items

  1. Community Resources
  2. Additional Web.Config Options
  3. Distributing your Module
  4. Additional .dnn Manifest Options

Please feel free to provide any input on this table of contents, and list any suggested additions below, all options will be considered.  Please note that I am looking to finalize this soon, so please post your comments early!


I will be posting an updated final TOC soon, but for now, if you want to pre-order here is a link to Amazon. Professional DotNetNuke Module Programming
