After the first-ever Orchard university course we aimed for repeating the course while also massively expanding its audience by giving the tutorials in English. Óbuda University was our host this time too. Students enrolled to the course as usual but this wasn't just an ordinary course: using the same tutorials (from videos captured in classes), extensive supportive materials and notes we also ran an online course in parallel, Dojo Course.
The course started with introducing Orchard's user interface and built-in features. Following were topics about theme development and module development, covering the most important pieces of knowledge an Orchard developer should know. For the last tutorial we've taken requests from on-site participants and online viewers.
Dojo Course was the first free and open Orchard online course, available to anybody. With about 8000 views until the end of the course we got to train more people on Orchard development than it would be ever possible through a non-online course. The resulting playlist of videos is the most comprehensive Orchard tutorial set to day.
