DotNetNuke is a free, open-source evolution of Microsoft's IBuySpy Portal Solution Kit. DotNetNuke began life as a framework for constructing data-driven intranet and Internet portal applications.

After that, you will journey to the heart of DotNetNuke, and learn about its core architecture. From there, you will learn how to customize DotNetNuke sites through skinning and creating custom modules.
Finally, you will learn how to enhance your site with forums, create multiple sites, and deploy your sites to a web host. You will master each of these topics as you leap into the development of a DotNetNuke 3.0 site.

Building Websites Using DotNetNuke Aug 29, 2006
Not very helpful for developers. This book is really a book for people using DotNetNuke from an administrative perspective. The module building chapter does not have a good example. I received better examples from the free module building tutorial on the DotNetNuke website. This book was suppose to be for developers or administrators (actually I bought for this reason). However, most the information for module building was not very helpful. I would recommend this book for administrators and beginnings looking to administer a website who do not know how to program or build data models.
I recommend Mar 7, 2006
I own it and its a good book. There simply isn't as much material out on DNN as there is on asp.net itself obviously. At the current moment, I'd say this is the best source of reading in printed format. There is one other book out now that has a black cover. It is good too and would probably give it 4 stars. Of course, I gave this one 5. The book is written by the guys who wrote the code...who else would you want your information from?

Good book about DNN Mar 3, 2006
I bought this book and the WROX DNN book. I like this one better. Especially the chapters on programming your own custom modules and deploying your apps. Invaluable.
Excellent book Sep 25, 2005
If you are looking to get up to speed to quickly on DotNetNuke this is the book for you. It covers virtually everything you need to know in under 300 pages. The writing is concise and explains the concepts clearly. It covers installation, administration, security, deployment, site creation and all of the basic built in DotNetNuke modules.
If you are interested in delving into customization and architecture it offers excellent chapters on core architecture, skinning and custom modules.
After reading the chapters on installation and basic concepts I was able to install DotNetNuke and create a number of standard modules on a test site in less than an hour.
I just read the new Wrox book, Professional DotNetNuke ASP.NET Portals, I liked it and it is more detailed but I think this books conveys the concepts in a much more compact and understandable manner
Invaluable Sep 22, 2005
If you have a need to add custom modules and don't want to spend hours reviewing the modules already in place, then this book will help you!
