Umbraco Community Google Hangouts

Hello all,
I had a brilliant idea on the train ride into work this morning. Why don’t we do a Google Hangout where members of the Umbraco community can join and show of their website implementations, packages or general code snippets and advice.

So I thought let’s just make it happen rather than just sit around and think about it, otherwise it will be another one of my ideas that just dies a miserable death!

I asked around on twitter if anyone was able to join me on my lunch break and join me for twenty or so minutes to chat and demo some stuff. Luckily someone replied!

So I present to you the first Umbraco Community Google Hangout with Jon Humphrey as the guest who demo’d his Umbraco 6 MVC implementation of http://lawcare.org.uk

My goal is to try and do this quite regularly with the community so we can all learn from one another and also learn about the awesome but often hidden Umbraco packages within the community. Depending on feedback I may make this a regular weekly Friday slot or perhaps bi-weekly.

Let me know what you think of the format and how often I should do it please in the comments!

The wonderful assistant

Today I helped out ex colleague and good friend Per Ploug with his first LIVE Google Hangout broadcast to YouTube to help direct some questions and interject with some questions of my own.

So if you missed Per giving a fantastic demo & introduction on how to build a Markdown Property Editor for Umbraco Belle, then I highly recommend you watch the video from the hangout, in order to catch up.
