As I mentioned, its been a few months between posts. Second day was the DNN Admin Training session run by Aderson Oliviera from Deskpal and DNN Hero. This was a hands on DNN Training session for experienced DNN Administrators. Aderson provided a rundown of all the DNN 9 features along with training on how to use them effectively.
I need to mention that the difference in administrator features between DNN 8 and DNN 9 are very minimal. DNN has never had a problem with features. It has the features you would expect from an enterprise level CMS and they are all very useful and this I've always seen as the advantage of DNN over some other CMS products out there. The big improvement in DNN 9 is definitely the persona bar and the rarrangement of common admin features. There's now an ease with which you can navigate throughout the admin menu and perform those common admin tasks. Even the Persona Bar's location on the left-hand-side and lessobstrusively is a well thought out change.
Some lessons learnt and useful info worth sharing from the training session:
In summary the training day for DNN Administration at the DNN Summit was an excellent event even for more experienced DNNers. The platform is big and there's still many areas I've avoided throughout the years so it was good to get Aderson's perspective on some of these features.
