Umbraco – A new taste of development

Niels Hartvig

Niels Hartvig - Founder

An open source CMS but this time in C#. I saw many applications on the web (refer to http://csharp-source.net, http://csharpopensource.com/ or this one http://www.dotnetopen.net/) that offer many open source apps in .Net but can anyone of them run huge applications such as www.asp.net or wired.co.uk?

Umbraco is an open source CMS in C# which could run www.asp.net and wired.co.uk and far too many other enterprise web apps (claiming more than 85000 installations). Yes it is based on open source license and it is chosen by many organizations such as Toyota and Microsoft.

Niels Hartvig, is the founder of this CMS. He was a simple Danish man who started changing his world by developing his idea. And again a developer made it.

This CMS can be easily used freely to start a personal web site, a business web site, a forum or … and also can be used by developers to build their own customized CMS based on their needs.

It is 100% based on .Net and was coded in MVC. It can be opened easily in VStudio or WebMatrix (there is a template for Umbraco in WebMatrix) to make any alteration. Furthermore, it can be connected to MSSql Server or MySql Server. You can also code for your own DBMS. Moreover, you can plan it over Windows Azure. For all you need to know about development, they have an active forum talking about development issues or just see this video to be shocked about the power of this CMS.

There is a really nice section in their web site called [Make A Wish], in which you can post any idea that you think is missed.

The last thing you should know is Umbraco’s base application is 100% free of charge unless you prefer it can be bundled with guaranteed and professional support, bug fixing warranty and productivity enhancing add-ons.

Why waiting so long, download it and start your own web ;))

21st century is called “Information Era”. After invention of computer in the previous century, pioneers felt the demand of connecting this new invention to one another in order to construct a chain of connected datastores that made so-called “Internet”. This happening changed the life style of many traditional sciences from Medical to finance. One of the most prominent impact of this change occurred in marketing. Internet-based businesses try to have the most possible share of this media.

According to the statistics, 28 percent of people can connect to the internet worldwide which are roughly 1,932,112,000. Marketers try to find solutions to attract more people to their business. There is a good question in their minds: “How many people can interact to my business directly?” honestly no media can bring as many users as internet can bring to your business.

Nowadays, online businesses are so popular because of many advantages. They can count on people access worldwide without any limitation. The term “24, 7, 365” is used a lot to showoff their online business. Online transactions let they feel relaxed and secured while doing business with their customers. Their customers also can access their intelligent services all the time; therefore, they can also take the same advantages as business owners can. For customers it is easier to refer to online services and use them rather than going physically and engage themselves.

On the other hand, managers and stack holders of businesses prefer to track their jobs online. Assume that you have a multinational business. It is near to impossible to know what is going on in all of your offices in the world. Internet tracking services are the best solutions to make you an offshore manager; it helps you track all of you job, employees, tasks and customers online in a pleasure trip.

There are many factors engaged with this issue in order to make a successful business chain. Learning more about online potentials help you most to boot your business in this highly competitive world.
