Powerpoint and Code from the Sitefinity 4.0 BETA Webinar

by Gabe Sumner

I’m still working on posting the Sitefinity 4.0 BETA webinar video. Due to technical issues encountered early into the webinar I lost the Gotomeeting recording.  We have backup recordings, but these recordings contain Ivan Osmak & I’s individual local recordings.  These two local recordings need combined into a single video.  It’s going to take me some time to get this video processed.  Be patient with me.

In the meantime, I’ve attached our Powerpoint slides to this blog post. 

Telerik Q2 2010 - What's New in the Sitefinity 4.0 BETA

Sitefinity 4.0 - Fluent API presentation

I’ve also posted Ivan’s code samples below:

This code uses features that are found in the upcoming BETA.  Consequently, it’s unlikely this code will work with the CTP release of Sitefinity 4.0.  If you’re interested, you’ll get a chance to play with the Fluent API next week.
