The Dawning of DBVT2008

I am very happy to announce the release of DBVT2008, the dawn of a new era at dbvt.com.  The biggest difference you’ll find in DBVT2008 is no “Powered by [anything Telligent]” logos anywhere.  That’s right.  No Community Server.  No Graffiti.  I am using strictly Open Source .NET applications on dbvt.com, Mads Kristensen’s BlogEngine.Net for my blog and an application called Gallery Server Pro by a young man from Wisconsin named Roger Martin for my photo gallery.  You know about BlogEngine.Net, and while few people know about Gallery Server Pro, they both rock.  There are several DBVT2008 technical issues I’m looking forward to blogging about regarding migration, integration, SEO and so forth, but not tonight.

Those of you who have been with me a while (years, many of you) and know my history with Telligent and Community Server may regard my DBVT2008 transition as a rather big deal.  Well yeah, it is.  Sorry for not expanding on where my head’s at and where I’m going.  I will, I promise.  Tonight I want to post a simple new site announcement in the hope you’ll stop by to check out my new crib.  As for the rest, I’ll let Dr. Lanning’s hologram do the talking for me.

 

Spooner: Hello, doctor.
Lanning: Everything that follows is a result of what you see here.
Spooner: Is there something you want to tell me?
Lanning: I’m sorry. My responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.
Spooner: Why did you call me?
Lanning: I trust your judgement.
Spooner: Is there something you want to say to me?
Lanning: I’m sorry. My responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.
Spooner: Why would you kill Community Server at dbvt.com?
Lanning: That, detective, is the right question. Program terminated.

A long time developer, I was an early adopter of Linux in the mid-90's for a few years until I entered corporate environments and worked with Microsoft technologies like ASP, then .NET. In 2008 I released Sueetie, an Online Community Platform built in .NET. In late 2012 I returned to my Linux roots and locked in on Java development. Much of my work is available on GitHub.
