Online Umbraco Belle Lab

Thursday, August 29, 2013 by Per Ploug

We have been talking about Belle / Umbraco 7 since april, showing off mockups, prototypes, and somewhat working applications. Then we went a step further and started releasing nightly builds and documentation for developers, and now we go a step further again.

You can’t learn everything from a written tutorial or from playing around with a site on your local machine, sometimes, you just need to see the entire context and flow to really get the idea.

So Friday August 30th, 2:00 pm (GMT+1) , I will be hosting a live coding session on Google Hangouts, where I’ll go through how you build an editor component for Umbraco 7, how you configure it, and how you can start taking advantage of the new javascript APIs to help you build great editor UIs.

It will be all javascript and html, no c#, no slides, and with a working editor on a live Umbraco 7 as the end result.

I hope to see you there, it will be live streamed from this youtube channel, and the direct link will also be posted here on the umbraco blog.

During the hangout, I will try to answer questions, which you can post on twitter to @perploug or as a comment on this blog post.

Stream below, it will go online at 2PM
