Can the DNN community come together produce flash or AVI movies of how to develop and admin DNN sites? (similar to the impressive Total Training series for Photoshop) I get REALLY lost by the old documents included with the latest downloads--sometimes they
point to things that are no longer in 3.0x.
I think the community is just begging for the following type of coverage:
1) Tutorial on how to do skins, heck, with Photoshop, just as 99% of the world does.
2) Tutorial on how to do modules. Simple ones, and complicated ones.
3) Tutorials on how to build addtional pages that may use facilities like Membership and Roles, but are basically not DNN modules.
4) Tutorials covering major version transitions.
5) FAQs and general "power tips".

I would recommend www.traincert.net for some excellent DNN3 videos, and the list is growing fast.

I have a subscription to www.traincert.net as well. The videos are great. They don't drag on for 90 minutes like the MS Webcasts. The videos are to the point and give you exactly the information you need.
EDIT: Several WebCasts are available on Microsofts web site as well. See

I am still contemplating whether to purchase the TrainCerts (in fact I am also contemplating which of the two DotNetNuke books out on Amazon would end up being more useful)...
I am checking out the microsoft webcast from R Fustino's ToolShed. As far as webcasts from Microsoft's go, it is pretty decent. I found it to be helpful in verifying my rough understanding of DNNv3 (I've been clicking around, trying different features for
hours). It was very clear in many respects and it definitely had a lot to add considering that these tutorials had to talk about the RCs verses the version .12 which we noobs have the pleasure of working with. You gotta give that presentor some kudos. In my
opinion though, there were some repetitions of concepts from session to session. And the topics are all over the place. Granted, Microsoft isn't paying the guy to build a 36 hour presentation, so he is frantically tried to fit everything in, I'd still try
to organize everything a bit. The only other major bug with the presentation was pretty common for MSDN webcasts--a lot of times the MSDN presentors forget to switch over to the desktop capture mode, so you end up looking at the old slide from 15 topics ago
for 45 minutes while he thinks we are following him along on the desktop. It's not a happy sight. All in all, I think everyone should download it and check it out, it's a good flick, but bring along a barf bag.

Don't contemplate any more...buy all three! Money well spent (taking the non-available 2nd book on trust)
