  • No CMS Boundaries. The Key Elements for True Extensibility


    A crucial element of any web development strategy is the extensibility of the platform. CMS platforms provide out-of-the-box features that alone enable the development of powerful websites. But to be truly valuable, they must offer extension points for custom content creation, increased functionality, and control over presentation.

    This webinar will demonstrate key areas of CMS extensibility to support web project requirements for today and tomorrow.

    • Increase productivity using code templates and IntelliSense in Visual Studio and apply the outcomes to your CMS projects within the IDE.
    • Integrate with external software and access content and application data regardless of where it’s stored using a fully exposed .NET API.
    • Quickly define custom content types, themes, and presentation with customizable templates.

    About the presenter:

    Tim Williamson is a Sitefinity Evangelist for Telerik. He lives on the web and is always looking for new and interesting ways to solve problems using Sitefinity and its bundled suite of Telerik tools.

  • Creating Dynamic Modules


    Developers often address unique web development requirements by creating dynamic modules. But creating these modules requires custom content types that can be complex and time consuming. Content types are more than just text and images. One must also consider different behaviors, controls, URLs, metadata and hierarchies. Miss a step and your module won’t run, or it can break the installation altogether.

    This webinar will demonstrate trusted CMS tools you can use to quickly create custom content types. You will learn about a module builder, which helps developers quickly address the boring task of generating custom content types—that can also be stored and extended for further use.

    Learn how to:

    • Rapidly create modules for projects, while still providing a customizable framework.
    • Create content with all of its different elements, control data structure and configure the presentation in less time.
    • Define new data models and create one-to-one, one-to-many or many-to-many associations with other content types.

    This webinar will dig into…

    • Hot Mobile Trends
    • How people are using Mobile devices to simplify their lives

  • Bring Your Existing .NET Skills to a CMS


    Software developers possess a set of coding skills that have been nurtured and maintained throughout years of experience. These are the skills that help you through the complex task of breathing life into any application – from initial design to entirely building out your data access, business logic and presentation.

    Your .NET skills are universal. So why should you relearn everything you already know?

    A good CMS builds on top of your .NET knowledge and helps you take care of tasks that are more complex or simply mundane and repetitive.  A CMS works for developers – building things like page and content management, infrastructure, security and great usability on top of what you already do.

    Join us for the Webinar “Bring Your Existing .NET Skills to a CMS” where we will discuss how to:

    • Use the CMS as a repository for any data-driven application scenario
    • Plug in existing or standard code into an interface your business users will love
    • Let the CMS framework focus on the infrastructure while you focus on the business requirements

    Standard technology gives you speed, power and flexibility to deliver any solution. Your CMS should supplement these skills – not replace them.

  • Developing In a .NET CMS Should Not Be a Chore


    Content management systems play a critical role in modern website projects by enabling non-technical users to manage online content. However, “user-friendly” often means “limited & infuriating” to developers. Tasks that should be easy (like modifying a bit of HTML), instead require days of research. Sitefinity addresses this challenge by utilizing familiar technologies (like MVC, Visual Studio and .NET) to create a CMS that sits on top of a complete developer platform. During this webinar you’ll see how Sitefinity enables developers to rapidly tackle complex tasks without compromising the user-friendly experience provided to end-users.
