Over the years, I’ve followed, learned, and tried many different ways to build extensions in DNN. Of course, the primary extension I’ve built has always been a module. If you’re new to DNN, a module is simply an app that you can install for visitors to interact with on your website.

introduce Upendo Ventures to you.
