The Orchard Hungary Team completed its first training-related assignment at the end of January. We were contacted by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence, which is a governmental organisation in the United Kingdom, that they would like to migrate both their intranet and internet applications to Orchard - a process they already started to execute. They have an experienced team of software developers at the Manchester HQ for whom they sought training solutions in Orchard: that's where we came into picture.
We just made some notable updates to our Orchard Training Demo module:
- File management demo with IStorageProvider
- Background tasks
- Unit tests
- And an awesome "map", and index file about the contents of the whole module where we abused C# to give you a conveniently traversable table of contents. This contains keywords (like "permission", "repository") and a pointer to where to look for an example in the module about them.
Check them out! And we'd be happy to hear your feedback!
Yesterday we released our new module: the Orchard Training Demo module. This module serves as a tutorial: it guides you through learning Orchard development by showing many examples with plenty of explanation (and covers almost everything we listed under the topics of module development). If you're starting with Orchard now, check it out!
As you may noticed we have a new menu item: Training. There we collect all the topics and supporting materials not just for our Orchard course but also generally for Orchard trainings. So if you'd like to hold an Orchard training for your colleagues or fellow tech enthusiasts in you local community don't hesitate to use our materials. Just drop us an e-mail first as per the licence, we'd really like to know who teaches Orchard around the world.
Two weeks ago, we've started to teach Orchard to a small group of Hungarian students and developers at our university: the John von Neumann Faculty of Informatics of Óbuda University. During this course we are covering the features and usage of the Orchard Admin interface, will discover theme development and learn how to deploy Orchard to hosting services, like AWS.
All the lessons are recorded and uploaded to YouTube to a playlist (the first three lessons are already available)!
Of course, if you don't speak Hungarian it won't make much sense, but still, it may worth to take a look into our lessons! Our notes and used resources will be available for everyone soon (they are written in English) for other enthusiasts to be able to start teaching and help more people know about Orchard and learn how to use it!
