Orchard Internals - new article series

Topics: Announcements, General
Sep 1, 2011 at 11:28 PM

Hi all,

Just thought I'd mention that I've started writing a series of articles which are a bit more code and internals focused about Orchard. We're doing a lot of Orchard work now and I felt like it would be helpful for me and my teams to really have a deep understanding of the Orchard code base - we're looking to really push it and grow it. So - I started writing a series of articles (amongst other things, but those are harder to share). I'm sticking them up on my blog, I'm basically just writing them in public. I hope that maybe they'll be of interest/use to people as I go - I'll be trying to explain some of the higher level Orchard concepts through a low level examination of the code.

Anyway, the intro blog post probably gives a good enough overview, there's one article up already, another 50% done (and readable to that point, although you might want to hold off) and hopefully plenty more on the way. It's here: Orchard Internals

Let me know if any of you have feedback!

Coll, I'll feature that on the home page, but why are comments not activated on that blog?

Hmmm, well mainly because the blog is static html at the moment - it's static files generated by Jekyll (it's currently running on Github Pages, after I got bored with years of running servers for personal use). I'll have a quick fiddle around with adding something like Disqus or something to give people some options to comment in situ.

OK. I also couldn't find the RSS. I'd like to follow this and feature future articles without your having to necessarily notify me.

Ah, I was relying on Atom auto-discovery for that, unwisely it seems - client support for that is rubbish anyway. There's an Atom feed at, and I've added a Feed link in the sidebar for others. I did only flip the DNS over a few hours ago, so there may be a few bugs to squash even with such a simple system.

Thanks. First two Orchard articles are on the home page.

EDIT: Ignore what I just said, I've just looked and you're spot on - ignore me :)

Sure, let me know when it's done.

Right, I'm happy enough that the second post is done for now - I do come back and tweak/edit them over time, but it should be roughly useful for people now. On to the next one!
