Kentico Software, maker of Kentico CMS, and Applied Innovations, a Microsoft Gold Certified provider of Windows-based Hosting solutions, announced today 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 $1,499) and a ready-to-use Web site template that helps .NET User Groups to 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 member-only areas.
The custom Website 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 Website.
".NET User Groups provide valuable information and training for their members and we are happy that we can support their activities," said Petr Palas, founder and CEO of Kentico Software. "We are happy that we found a professional hosting partner, Applied Innovations, to offer free web hosting for .NET User Groups. Users get a complete solution and they can start editing their new Web site instantly.”
Applied Innovations will provide a free hosting account for .NET user groups to host their Kentico CMS installation.
“We are excited to further our relationship with the .NET user community as we continue to build a line of robust hosting services geared toward developers,” said Jess Coburn, CEO, Applied Innovations. “In partnering with Kentico Software, we are able to leverage their advanced CMS solution to create an out-of-box collaboration solution for .NET user communities.”
.NET User Groups can sign up for a free license and hosting at Kentico's website. To learn more about Applied Innovations, please visit Applied Innovations website.
