The DotNetNuke Boston User Group is dedicated to the design, development, and use of DotNetNuke - the leading web content management system (CMS) and application development platform for Microsoft .NET. It’s a group mix of designers, developers and end users with one thing in common – they all use DotNetNuke in one way or another, and freely share their knowledge about how to get the most out of the platform.
Mandeep Singh will be the guest speaker at the November 13th, 2012 meeting.

One of the highlights at DNN World 2012 is that DotNetNuke strategically partners with Microsoft Azure for next 4 years. This virtually translates in cloud driven DotNetNuke sites available at instant notice with ability to scale up as needed.
DotNetNuke has finally laid the foundation for Cloud driven DNN Sites and we will see a significant adoption for Microsoft Azure with the DNN ecosystem.
The good news is for our customers is that we’ve been actively working to support Azure for all of our DNN Modules and as a matter of fact all of our recent offerings support Microsoft Azure. Going forward, all of our modules will be Azure compatible.

DotNetNuke World 2011 by far has been the most successful conference in terms of attendance which surpassed over 400 attendees this year.
DotNetNuke continues to reshape the CMS industry by redefining it as Cloud, Mobile, and Social (C.M.S). DotNetNuke platform has been in the Cloud with Amazon EC2, Rackspace Cloud, and other private clouds but with release of DotNetNuke 6.0, it’s now officially supported on Windows Azure as well. The platform made a leap into mobile world with release of DotNetNuke 6.1 last week which now allows the platform to seamlessly handle mobile devices such as phones and tablets; which brings me to the first highlight of DotNetNuke World 2011
If you’re serious about supporting mobile platform within a DotNetNuke ecosystem then you must look at a very promising upcoming project by Nik Kalyani named DRUID. It’s an open source project and available at http://druid.codeplex.com
Here are some of the features of DRUID:
DRUID is fairly new but looks promising so keep a tab on CodePlex for updates.
Another interesting upcoming feature in DotNetNuke core is support for REST based web service layer API which would open many opportunities such as Desktop Software, Mobile Apps, and other solutions seamlessly integrating with a DotNetNuke site. At this time, there is no timeframe for when this would be available but we do know that there will be two major DotNetNuke releases in 2012 Q2 & Q4 which would be primarily focused on Social aspect of C.M.S and we may see this new service layer API surface then.
