You can build websites with ASP.NET, Silverlight or other technologies like PHP. But after you have build the website, people need to alter things on the website. You don’t want to be called for each and every thing they want to change on the website. So you are better off to start with a content management system right away!
I tried to use it some years ago, but at that time there was a lack of documentation. This week is the first Dutch Umbraco User Group meeting at The Microsoft office at Schiphol. I will attend this meeting because I want to see how Umbraco is improving. Umbraco is greatly appreciated amongst the community and receives good reviews. Let’s see if they can make me a fan of their product too:)
You can find all the details of the meeting HERE.
