Southern Fried DNN 2013

You should already be aware, but there is an incredibly active and vibrant user group in Charlotte, North Carolina called Queen City DotNetNuke User Group or QCDUG.  These folks were also the masterminds behind the Day of DotNetNuke Charlotte last year.  When they agreed to do another event this year, I couldn’t even tell you how excited I was because last year was so awesome!  These gentlemen sure did not disappoint when they organized and held their second event, this time branded in a fun way as Southern Fried DNN!  What a great way to participate in our community!

Day of DotNetNuke Charlotte 2012

Unless you’ve literally been disconnected from the internet for the past 2 months, the Day of DotNetNuke Charlotte was held this past weekend. After having the event in many notable places like Orlando, Tampa, Chicago, Paris, and Nova Scotia, Charlotte had its turn. Not to be outdone, the sons and daughters of Charlotte did not disappoint. If you missed it this year, you REALLY missed it…

Unless your head has been buried in the sand like an Ostrich might do, there is going to be a Day of DotNetNuke this year, and it is being held in the beautiful City of Charlotte.  Charlotte is also known as the Queen City, among other things – hence the name of the local user group, Queen City DotNetNuke User Group, or QCDUG.  These guys have been hard at work organizing, and their work is clearly being seen – most recently with their brand spanking new website!

There was a twitter contest this morning to see if anyone could accurately guess who the keynote speaker would be at this years Day of DotNetNuke Orlando event.  Originally, a DotNetNuke shirt was offered as a prize for the right guess.  There were plenty of guesses, but no one hit the target.  Next, the deal was sweetened with a DNN boomerang.  Still, no one guessed the right person – but there certainly were plenty of entertaining guesses!  Finally, the stakes were raised to include not just a DNN t-shirt and boomerang, but also a frisbee.  At the time of this writing, the keynote speaker was not guessed, so no one gets the swag.  That shouldn’t prevent you from knowing who the speaker is though!

As announced previously, the Day of DotNetNuke is back in Orlando, where it all started.  The event is co-located with the Orlando .Net Code Camp on March 26 in Sanford, FL.  These events are conveniently located and timed to be just prior to the Orlando DevConnections.  The proximity in both time and venue makes this event a MUST ATTEND since you could easily get approval from your boss(es) to go to both DevConnections and the Orlando .Net Code Camp,...
