  • Orchard Harvest 2015 – ASP.NET MVC 6 Tag Helpers

    Taylor Mullen was here to introduce the tag helpers that are going to be added to ASP.NET MVC 6, basically to replace HTML helpers. Tag helpers are html tag-like bits of C# code. Because they are essentially C#, you can get all the benefits of the IDE, such as IntelliSense and refactoring.

  • Orchard Harvest 2015 – Orchard for tens of thousands of journalists

    Lombiq gave us a case study of Media Kitty, which is a web site with 18,000 users. This is a rewrite of a web site that was previously written with VB and WebForms.

  • Orchard Harvest 2015 - VNext

    Nick Mayne is presenting this session on not the next minor version of Orchard, but the real, actual 2.0 that’s going to happen.

There is one session that I missed in that frantic blogfest, and for good reason: I was giving it, with my friends Nick and Sébastien.

  • Orchard Harvest 2015 – Case study: the NFLPA web site

    The NFL Player Association web site is a migration from a WebForms application. The team wanted a WordPress-like CMS, but running on .NET. They ruled out SharePoint and Umbraco, and went for Orchard because of its dashboard (that was 1.8 at the time). They chose to deploy on Azure.

  • Orchard Harvest 2015 – Search API
