Hello World

A developer's version of a Blog Hello World.

 Typically when programmers learn something new, they are usually given the typical "Hello World" example.  The objective is simple to understand (print the string "Hello World").  It usually shows how to open an editor, type in some lines of code, compile, debug (usually the case :>), then compile and execute the sample.  There's some effort that goes into the simple Hello World sample.  I've done that with Pascal, Fortran, Lisp, Ada, C++, VB, Java, C#, ASP, APSX and a few others which I've forgotten about.

Well, this is my Hello World sample of the blogging domain.

I'm hoping to create a technical blog of interesting technical tidbits of information I come across.  I'll be doing this for two reasons, one cause I figure if I need it, then someone else might need it too.  But also if I needed it once, I'll probably need it again in the future (hence the Search feature :>).

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do writting it.

Re: Hello World

What application did you use to create your blog?

Re: Hello World

Hi Bob, how are things? I have to admit I wasn't expecting THIS blog entry to generate any comments, but here you are! :> haha Very cool! :>

I'm using DotNetNuke right now as my framework and using the Blog plugin/addin. Is that what you're looking for? It wasn't nearly as complicated as I first thought it was to setup, but it did take some time to configure it the way I wanted.

If you're not looking to install DNN and all the other pieces (SQL Server, IIS, etc), there are other XML based blogging tools you can use. If you're a hacker looking to make your life easier and funner by asking me what I'm using, so you can direct your hacking sessions.....well...I trust that you're not and that IIS is going to protect me.

Hope that helps, have a good one! :>

Re: Hello World

Thanks Peter, I was basically looking for a free solution. It looks like I will try the DotNetNuke since I am a .Net Developer.

Re: Hello World

That's where I started with DNN too! Kudos for going .NET/DNN way! I wanted to do two things, one have a solid framework for my pictures (login, acct mgmnt, display pics, etc) and for starting up a blog. Turns out, what I thought I could do easily (pics), I can't. :< There are PLENTY of modules out there, but nothing to help me do what I want (they're mostly flash versions instead of displaying a directory). The blogging is what's been the biggest and most pleasant surprise actually! Took me a few tries to get it the way I want it, but it's working now and I'm able to concentrate on what I want to say! It's actually quite cool! That's not to say there's no hiccups, but they are few and workable. I'm looking forward to getting the next version of the blogs.

re your a .NET developer too
Are you running your own SQL Server? What about IIS? You'll want to play around with the website aliases to get your own webapps working. I had to do that to get my Search working (it might look like the rest of the site, but that's only cause of the CSS), as well as other sites I have on my box. DNN wants to take over everything, you'll have to play with it a bit to let IIS see your other web apps.

Good luck! (and thanks for replying, I was getting worried you were a hacker and I just told you vital info :< mind you, if you were a hacker you probably woud be able to tell ME somethings about my server! :>>>>).
