I wish I could give a community award for a pull request submitted on Github. I would like to recognize another community member taking time to volunteer and contribute a fix for a module that has been stale for some time. DNN Events module has had little outside love other than the one person (Ernst Tamminga) really supporting the events project development effort. With that being said the award would go to this GitHub DNN Events pull request
A bit of a HOORAY story seeing some activity in the DNN Events module open source project and for all the outstanding community volunteer members participating here. You all deserve a lot of gratitutde from so many. I am very happy to see someone that puts their effort into a community project like DNN Events which has been fairly stale I think they should get a little extra love here.
All the hard and AWESOME support help that went into the current 9.4.3 RC recently as well. Thank you! DotNetNuke still has issues but so many went away at the same time. I have noticed great improvements in speed with a lot better responsiveness of the past releases. But for putting out an RC for the community to test for hopefully a solid release so quickly after is one heck of an awesome community effort happening now. Good job! I look forward to it being released. I am hoping most all other bugs get ironed out as well in the near future for version 9. I know everyone is working hard as I put at least an hour plus in everyday for my own personal goals with learning DNN. I am currently sharing whatever I can learn along the way. One thing is simply learning how to submit a PR. Then having one accepted is a blast. My changes will one day be changed and improved on. I love it... I am here for the community team and I love to win.
Seeing how different bugs get fixed is very educational for someone like me trying to learn or refresh some development skills. For those putting out pull requests every release dont think you have been forgotten, you all ROCK! And those getting involved helping volunteer support towards DotNetNukes modernization using .NET Core framework my hat is off to you. I have been reading about the steps needing to happen in version 9 and 10 to limit breaking changes moving to the DNN.vNext project. For those wishing to just see a version 9 fixed these bugs need fixed now. Efforts will move towards 10 and should so we can get to 11 (.NET Core). This is the DNN roadmap from my understanding as of currently so things are getting changed in the background each release as delicately as can be given what we have as a community to pool as resources.
After waking up I had to make post like this because it was almost unbelievable seeing a bug for one of DNN modules getting loved on. The platform changes are important and the modules need the support to move with DNN and the times as well. This community is awesome and it really shows how much it shines when a fix for a bug is created or add a new feature. It is like the freshest breathe of air you could ever desire at times for those using and trying to help fix that are not due to whatever reason.
This is our community domain. The only one that is going to clean our house here is us. It is always a welcome to see new members in the family or old ones reach accross the board somewhere new helping clean up a mess.
I wish everyone traveling a safe holiday season and have a Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you all !!!
