This month’s presentation will be held at BC3’s Cranberry Campus, behind Costco in Cranberry Township, PA. It’s easy to find, so if you’ve never been here before, map it from your location and see how convenient we are!
Tool of the Month (“use one, don’t be one”)
Would anyone be surprised if we made the claim that your workplace probably runs on caffeine and Microsoft Excel? Probably the most common task developers have is taking information from a datasource and getting it into Excel workbooks. Rich Dudley will demonstrate one of his favorite tools, Carlos Aguilar’s free ExcelXmlWriter.
We’ll also briefly review how to use the blog features on the BADNUG website.
One of the major features of the DotNetNuke portal is its skinning capabilities, yet this capability is poorly documented in both books and the included documentation. Following on our previous “Intro to DNN” meeting, Rich Dudley will walk through creating a skin, and share some pitfalls he’s encountered in working with www.chocolatefountainnetwork.com and www.daysinnbutler.com.
We have two copies of Daniel Egan’s “Building Websites with VB.NET and DotNetNuke 3.0”, and all the Visual Studio 2005/SQL Server 2005 Beta 2’s you want.
