Welcome to the Orchard Project – a free, community-focused, open source CMS built on .NET and designed meet the needs of developers, designers, and end-users alike. In this talk, we’ll build a site from the ground-up using Orchard’s admin panel and flexible module and theme system. We’ll look at the available ecosystem of modules and themes in the Orchard Gallery, and take a peek “under-the-hood” of Orchard to demonstrate how you can write your own custom extensions, widgets, and more. We’ll also delve into the Orchard’s template system in detail, demonstrating how you can create a highly-customized look-and-feel for your site. We’ll end by actually shipping our totally customized Orchard-based application to a live site.

    Channel9 video assets must be on the worst pipes on the web. And when trying to download the p.o.s. IE9 reports it is downloading 2 instances,

    I tried in Chrome and the same poor throughput but at least Chrome only tries to download 1 instance of the request.

    This has been happening to me all of the time with Channel9.

    I've been chewing on the project documentation, but this presentation made it way easier and better to understand how to use Orchard. Thanks!

    One thing I missed though is a proper (visual!!!) introduction to Modules, Areas, Parts, etc. Technical terms, therefore I lost you a couple of times during the talk. But, if this can be polished in the documentation and future talks, I bet it works out great!
