My thoughts and feelings around the 6th UK Umbraco Festival in London, which gets bigger and better every year. A truly inspiring event and a great reflection of the Umbraco community.
If you're an ASP.NET developer then sooner or later you will come across an occasion when you want to manipulate or parse values from the current request's querystring. To make this easier I developed a small C# library that enables developers to easily manipulate the querystring collection.
This post explains how you can create C# extension methods to make querying Umbraco's IPublishedContent more intuitive and seamless. It also includes some examples of methods I commonly use in my projects.
In this post I want to show you how to automatically generate an XML (Google) sitemap for an Umbraco CMS site. The code uses the Umbraco API, Linq To XML and a generic .ashx hander to do this in one small file.
In this post I praise the hidden world of foreign-language cinema and TV that we rarely experience in the English speaker world. I also wonder why we see so few subtitled drams on British TV.
