DNN Summit has a long history. It’s grown a lot since 2009, when I first founded the Day of DotNetNuke conference.
Back then, I used to speak at pretty much every user group and conference I could get to. I love public speaking.
I love helping people learn something new – or better – helping inspire people to try something they may have never
before considered. I took about 2 years off from speaking, and now… I’m back! I’ll be speaking at DNN
The Hotcakes Commerce community was recently restored a few months ago when version 3.0 was released. This was
welcomed with a lot of enthusiasm since our community was once very large and strong. There was a bit of gamification
in the previous community, and we wanted to ensure that we still had that kind of experience with the new one.
This article will help you get to know a bit more about the new community features that give you rewards.
Configuring your Google Analytics in previous versions of DNN was super simple. You would just navigate to the
Google Analytics page and paste in your Google Analytics tracking ID. Since DNN 9 was released, some of the
administration that was easily accessible is yet to be added back to the administration area. This article
will help you to enable and update Google Analytics to use the most current version, universal analytics. This
is important since the default version of Google Analytics is using DoubleClick. You can blame me for that
since I submitted that pull request, but it was the current at the time…
What is this Upendo Ventures thing, anyway? I mean, it sounds funny and it seems to have come out of nowhere. Also, what in the world has Will Strohl (me) been up to the past few months? These and many more questions have
been coming our way, and this article hopes to answer many of them. Needless to say, we’re very excited to
introduce Upendo Ventures to you.
When I founded Upendo Ventures, it was in my heart to build a business that mirrors my values and how I believe we should all treat each other as human beings. For anyone that knows me, you’ll know that this train of thought has been at the core of everything I’ve ever done – including those menial tasks that none of us love to do. This was also reflected in my hard work with Hotcakes Commerce, where I loved helping to make e-commerce easier for everyone. With Hotcakes going open source, it begs the question, “Where and how will I get support now?” For anyone that’s enjoyed or been interested in the Hotcakes Cloud, you’ll have this and other similar questions.
