This is a recording from an MSDN Live Meeting broadcast from the Microsoft Belgium office on November 8, 2011.


Kris van Der Mast (ASP.NET MVP) runs you through the Orchard open source CMS. Get to know Orchard, a nice free ASP.NET MVC based CMS from the Microsoft stables unleashed to the community. It's Windows Azure ready out of the box, themeable and has a gallery with add-ons you can also construct yourself, this puppy is growing up fast.
