The CMS ecosystem and Microsoft
CMS is extremely important strategically for any web company. About 35% of web sites use a CMS, and the top ones are all PHP (WordPress on its own is more than 20% of all web sites). In other words, if you care about the market share of your web platform...
A quick look at what’s new in Orchard 0.8
We shipped Orchard 0.8 on Monday and it’s the last release we will make before 1.0, which is scheduled for January 2011. We think it’s a pretty nice release in that it wraps up the UI story for the platform. 1. New theme engine with Razor and Clay ASP...
Orchard 0.5 is out
Before I joined Microsoft seven years ago, I had spent a couple of years building a Web CMS. It wasn’t open-source unfortunately but the experience convinced me that most public-facing web sites would shortly use some form of CMS. I also forged strong...
RSS feeds in Orchard
When we added RSS to Orchard , we wanted to make it easy for any module to expose any contents as a feed. We also wanted the rendering of the feed to be handled by Orchard in order to minimize the amount of work from the module developer. A typical example...
Orchard team looking for a new developer
My team is looking for a new full-time developer. The project is to build a completely new open-source CMS based on ASP.NET MVC 2. It’s a lot of fun :) https://careers.microsoft.com/JobDetails.aspx?ss=&pg=0&so=&rw=1&jid=9434&jlang...

A total n00b’s guide to migrating from a custom data layer to Nhibernate: getting started
(Screencast can be found at the end of the post) To be clear when I say “total n00b”, I’m not talking about you, dear reader, I’m talking about me. The last time I wrote any serious data access code was circa 2002. Since then, I got hired by the Evil...
Mocking indexer getters with Moq
This is a follow-up on that other post: Mocking indexer setters with Moq . So thanks to that post, we now know how to intercept the setting of a particular indexed property (in our example, an application variable) and set a local variable with the value...
Tell me what smells in WebForms as a view engine
Don’t read too much into this, but I’d love to read your feedback on this. I’m compiling a list of stuff that smells in WebForms when used as a view engine in MVC. Along the lines of: Noisy page directives that are useless for MVC runat=server Page lifecycle...
Mocking indexer setters with Moq
I quite like MoQ because it makes sense for me. Shamefully, I’ve always had some trouble understanding test code that was using mocks built with other frameworks. With MoQ , I can just grok it for some reason. It’s just super-clear to me. It doesn’t mean...
