To continue the blog post series of confirmed sessions for the annual Umbraco
conference CodeGarden. I caught up briefly with fellow HQ
colleague, Shannon Deminick to tell me about his session at this
years CodeGarden conference.
Warren: So Shannon Can you tell us what your
session is called for CodeGarden?
Shannon: It's called 'Rebuilding the Node
Selector in V5, from .proj start to .nuget end'
Warren: That sound's like a neat title, but
what is the Node Selector?
Shannon: Well you would have known it as Multi
Node Tree Picker aka MNTP from the uComponents package, but in V5
it has been given a more appropriate name of the Node Selector.
Warren: So what will your session cover?
Shannon: Well as the title suggests I will
dissect the Node Selector for V5 and take you through each step as
to how I built it for V5, from creating a Visual Studio project all
the way through to creating a V5 Nuget package out of it. In
addition to guiding you through some best practices in creating
plugins, this session will show off some of the cool gems and inner
workings of v5 that you will probably want to know about.
Warren: That sounds like a killer session. I
know I will be there, to see if I can pick up some tips from
Shannon has worked on the Umbraco core for 4 years
since pre 4.0. He's developed Examine and
ClientDependency frameworks as well as founded
the uComponents project and created the most
popular v4 DataType: MNTP (Multi node tree picker). Shannon has
since worked on the v5 codebase since its inception and has been
the lead developer for much of the MVC portion of the codebase. He
regularly blogs about both Umbraco and ASP.Net MVC @ http://shazwazza.com
So that's another CodeGarden session confirmed that you know
about and it sounds like it will be a great session to attend. If
you haven't already bought your ticket I highly recommend you buy it
now to avoid disappointment.
Keep an eye on this blog as we post more confirmed sessions and
other great info about CodeGarden as time goes on.
