The first official Community Server Developers Conference (CSDC) was held on the weekend of October 20th and 21st and Appliedi.net was there to be part of it.
Over the past few years Community Server has played a lead role in web based community sites by being the platform of choice by developers from around the world.
For those of you that don’t know, Community Server is an all round ready to go system based on blogs, photo galleries, forums, and file sharing. The application is developed by Telligent Systems and built with ASP.net (C#). The most recent version available for download is Community Server 2007 2.1. The application can be hosted on our Value Plus plan and can easily scale to any of our advanced or enterprise dedicated asp.net hosting solutions.

The conference itself was based on theming community server, reporting, and a look ahead into Community Server 2008. We also got a sneak peak at the companies’ latest project named Graffiti. This newly created CMS will allow a small to mid sized business full control over their web presence without the need for a designer.

One of the greatest things about this event was the variety of people that were present from all over the world. Attendees from Central and South America as well as all parts of Europe were all there to be a part of this. We spoke with the IT folks from FOX, HP, and Texas instruments on how Community Server 2007 plays a lead role as their web content delivery method.
The Applied Innovations Team gave away 2 Zune media players after its presentation on the Windows web platform and ASP.net hosting.
