April 2011 Meeting

Umbraco wants to be your friend

When choosing a .NET based CMS there are plenty of choices. One increasingly popular choice is Umbraco, quoting from its official site:

Umbraco is transparent and honest. It exists as an open framework to empower you to make a difference to the way content is delivered.

Umbraco lives because of its community which thrives on collaboration and is passionate about technology. We work together to bring about change.

"The Friendly CMS," this is what Umbraco calls itself these days. As we all know, fancy taglines don't give you enough information to make technology recommendations. We'll give you the fundamental information to make the call yourself. Working from your existing webforms knowledge, you'll learn how to create a basic Umbraco driven site. Then we'll walk though a couple real-world case studies.
