Welcome to blue-and-orange.net!
blue-and-orange.net is a web development blog (well,
Blue and Orange (the name may seem rather
random; 2 of my favourite colours) is an online blog mostly
covering the topics related to web programming, server
configuration, databases and pretty much anything in between.
Although you can see some topics on PHP, this website is mainly
about .NET platform - to be more specific
C#, Xamarin and Umbraco content
management system. I've been working with .NET
plartfrom (C#) and Umbraco for over 6 years now. I
am a big fan of .NET in general - development
tools, framework and code sturucture (I'm a little bit pedantic
when it comes to coding, which I think is a good thing).
I've started blue-and-orange.net project in 2007. Intially this
blog was build on Wordpress, then rebuilt to run
on Drupal and it finally settled down with
Umbraco. Umbraco is an aaaaamazing CMS, true
platform for growth, so you'll soon see some new sections including
blue-and-orange.net currently runs on
Umbraco v 4.7.1 with a few bespoke elements that I
added to make it more interactive and web 2.0-looking such as
ajax-powered contact form in top navigation, ajax articles
calendar, google api integration for galleries and videos page and a few
extras. If you'd like to find out a bit more how this blog is
structured, check out "How
blue-and-orange.net takes full advantage of Umbraco".
