Russ Fustino (of Russ' Toolshed fame) and I are doing two new webcasts on DNN v4 on Monday, Feb 13, 2006 - one at 12:00 PM EST and the second at 2:00 PM EST (Eastern, USA). Links to register are on
my website, and you can even join the live studio audience if you're near Tampa, FL (and join us for a Pub Club afterward). These sessions follow in the same vein as the 6 webcasts we did on DNN v3 in 2005 (downloads
on my website).
The first webcast is: DNN v4 Overview - a 100-level (introductory) talk. Here we'll do a quick intro to DNN, and talk about where DNN v4.0 and v3.2 are today. The bulk of the talk will be a "first look" demo of DNN v4. Finally, we'll touch on the DNN project
organization, DNN project futures, and some Tips & Tricks. Note that since DNN v4.0 and v3.2 are functionally equivalent, most of this session's content applies equally to both versions with some comparison/contrast thrown in.
The second webcast is: DNN v4 on ASP.NET v2 - a 200-level (intermediate) talk. Here we'll demo DNN v4 installation, and talk about deployment and upgrades. Next we'll overview what's new in DNN v4 for ASP.NET v2. Finally, we'll walk through getting the DNN
v4 source package running in Visual Studio 2005 (with some discussion of the Starter Kit and Visual Web Developer). We'll wrap up with more Tips & Tricks.
Based on interest, we will consider continuing the series into more advanced topics like we did with last year's DNN v3 webcasts. Please let me know what you think.
I hope to "see" you Monday. DNN Rocks!

Assuming I can get approval we might even be able to briefly touch on some of the upcoming features for the next release which have just completed requirements and partial design. Just doing some final scoping based on anticipated effort. I think some
of this will tie in nicely with the 200 talk.
Also, I sent you email on the webcast moderation question, but not sure if you have received it since it sometimes gets bounced due to blackhole lists (my ISP is not the greatest for keeping spammers off the network so my IP usually gets sucked into the
blackhole along with the spammers).

Thanks for the great suggestion to cover new features - I'm sure many in the community will appreciate hearing about it. I know that the Roadmap is a popular, if not sometimes contentious topic.
I'm looking forward to you joining the webcasts, I'm working on a couple others also.

Thanks to all who viewed the webcasts live - we had a pretty good turnout (peak ~170). According to a poll we took, approx. 2/3's of the audience were new to DNN. That's a higher number than I expected, but I'm not surprised considering DNN's huge uptake
rate right now.
Unfortunately the first session had a serious lag problem in LiveMeeting that blew the session. For that I apologize, but there was nothing we could do at the time.
The good news is that Russ and I, along with Joe Brinkman and Tracy Wittenkeller of T-WORX re-recorded that session last evening, and it should soon be posted in place of the original session. I much prefer the excitement generated during a live session,
but the new one came out pretty well.
As a quick teaser - we've got 2 more sessions scheduled for Friday March 17, 2006. More info to come as we flesh out the plan.
Slides and links to the webcasts recordings are available on
my website. Please let me know what you'd like to see covered in future sessions.
I hope to see you all in a future webcast.

Great sessions! Just two things. Please try to slow Russ down.[:D] He can really get going when he is on a roll. Us mere mortals have a hard time keeping up! Maybe take his coffee away?
What about the demo you weren't able to get to in the second session? Will we get to see it in the next one?
Keep up the good work.

Has the recorded session been posted somewhere yet?
