You must bring a laptop. DeVry has tables with outlets so don’t forget that power supply. We recommend more than 1 Gb of RAM and at least 10 Gb of free disk space. External USB or Firewire drives really help. We will help you get organized and install the right software for continued virtual fun! We have Internet access but you need to bring an Ethernet cable. If not, make sure that all required software is on your machine when you arrive.
Orchard is a free, open source, community-focused project aimed at delivering applications and reusable components on the ASP.NET MVC platform. It is run by some Microsoft developers. In the near term, the Orchard project is focused on delivering a .NET-based CMS application that will allow users to rapidly create content-driven Websites, and an extensibility framework that will allow developers and customizers to provide additional functionality through module extensions and themes.
The first half of the class Bill will guide you through the Orchard CMS where we build a site about the upcoming Oscars. Rob will then dive into code and have you build a custom module in C# using Razor syntax.
