Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer


Brian Scarbeau



The future of internet applications is based on the creation of portals to deliver web based services.  Organizations that have a great deal of information are centralizing their applications by an information portal. More specifically they are solving their problem by creating an Enterprise Information portal to share information on databases over the web using applications that are created with object oriented programming.

Dotnetnuke is written in Visual Basic.NET an is an open source solution to anyone  who needs a portal website. The basic idea behind Open Source is very simple: When programmers can read, redistribute, and modify the source code for a piece of software, the software evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, and people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing.


This series of webcasts will teach you how to design such portals and learn how to use the latest technology using Visual Studio.NET as a tool.  You will create a website for a fictious high school called Comp Sci High.  We will be using version 2.1.2 of dotnetnuke because of the ease of use with an access database for educators.


The sessions are featured for high school educators but anyone is invited.



 Webcast Session 1

This session will review what a portal is and give an overview of dotnetnuke. You’ll learn how to setup dotnetnuke and IIs.  Furthermore, you’ll learn how to create tabs (pages) using dotnetnuke.
