UPDATE (2017-11-22): Dojo Course 2 is released with new, updated videos!

This week on Dojo Course we dive into the Orchard API, use some of the build-in services and extending the capabilities of our module to make it even better!

  • Using LazyField<T> to load data lazily so they are only loaded when we really need them.
  • Using Work<T> to load dependencies lazily so they are only resolved when we really need them.
  • Applying the [Admin] attribute for admin-related
  • Getting to know an other Orchard service: IAuthorizer.
  • Creating our own permissions by implementing the IPermissionProvider.
  • Using the ContentManager so we can finally work with content items!
  • Generating ad-hoc shapes and matching them to an actual template.
  • Implementing the IResourceManifestProvider interface for managing static resources.

Remember: if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask them by creating a new issue in the Orchard issue tracker with the "discussion" label. Make sure to prefix your thread's title with "Dojo Course - "! We keep an eye on these issues. Also follow us on Twitter to get notified about the latest Dojo Course news, including when a new tutorial is posted.
