Kentico/Applied Innovations Offer Unique Solution for .NET User Groups
Kentico Software, maker of Kentico CMS, and Applied Innovations, a Microsoft Gold Certified provider of Windows-based hosting solutions, announced the two companies have partnered to offer a unique free Web site solution for .NET user groups. The solution, available through Kentico s partnership with Applied Innovations, allows local .NET developer communities to collaborate between community members.
Users will receive a free license of Kentico CMS Enterprise Edition (valued at US$1,499) and a ready-to-use Web site template that helps .NET user groups share information with group members; inform members about group meetings; publish articles and presentations from the meetings; communicate in discussion forums; distribute e-mail newsletters; create blogs; share files and photos; and create members-only areas.
The custom Web site template was created to meet the specific needs of .NET user groups. The template allows groups to focus on their community activities, rather than exhaust resources building a Web site.
Applied Innovations will provide a free hosting account for .NET user groups to host their Kentico CMS installation. .NET user groups can sign up for a free license and hosting at http://www.kentico.com/dng.aspx.
