Comments
from the
Editor
==========================================================


INETA is the International .NET Developers Association. It is an organization
that works with many of the local .NET User Groups  around the world. I run
the .NET user group in Indianapolis and we are a charter member of INETA. There
are similar organizations for Java, Macromedia, and others areas.


At this month’s meeting we had a presentation on DotNetNuke. This is an open
sourced product that provides web site functionality and more. You can find it
at


http://nl.internet.com/ct.html?rtr=on&s=1,2lh9,1,m9qi,gevv,jorm,i5r0


DotNetNuke is open and available to use. This means you can take pieces and
use them (subject to the rules of the open source licensing). These pieces
include code for a portal framework, announcements, blogs, contacts, events,
FAQs, doing feedback, photo gallery, news feeds, reporting, store, surveys, and
much more. If you need this type of functionality, then you should take a look.
Why reinvent the wheel if you don’t have to!


You can go to http://www.dotnetnuke.com/ to
download DotNetNuke. You can go to http://www.Ineta.org to find a user group near
you.


Until next week…


Brad!
