Hi everyone,

I'm working on project about News website that use Orchard framework. And first goal I set is create a Article module what made by category.

I read and did almost tutorial at Document page of Orchard project website. At the moment, I'm following Orchard tutorial series (now in Part VII) at

I'm ASP.NET developer for two years, but is new to MVC and many other architecture.

I saw so many pattern in Orchard. For ex: repository, dependence injection, MVC, MVVM... So, I'm so confused to learn about Orchard.

Could you let me some advice about anywhere I can learn more about them? or show me knowledge that I must have to master Orchard framework.

I like Orchard so much. And thinking and doing about it day by day.

Waiting for help...Thanks!

Read code. See how others do it. Look at problems one by one, and follow the leads where they get you. Trying to fix simple bugs is also a good way to learn.

I read code, and practiced with them, step by step and really thought about every problems :)

However, I want to know some extend knowledge to understand more clearly about Orchard framework.

Just try more and more :)

There's so much in the framework, it's difficult to give advice without a more specific topic :) Your best bet is to ask about a particular feature, concept or module that you don't understand, and someone can give you an explanation or links to tutorials etc.

just keep on trying and trying (read code, create own modules by changing current available modules) till you master it.
