In this series we looked at how to get a blog up and running with some minimal features. I'd like to conclude it with a few things we haven't yet mentioned and finally send you on your way.
I think you should be hosting your Umbraco site in the cloud be it AWS, Azure or UaaS. I highly recommend using Azure if you can afford it. Be sure to take advantage of all the free service credits Microsoft gives away as there is no telling how long they'll offer them. As UaaS evolves, it may end up being the defacto hosting for most Umbraco sites just like Wordpress has done.Read More

I designed and built this new blog in less than 7 days. This is part one of a series that documents the design, planning and building of an Umbraco site with minimum viable features.
Projects near and dear to me
Umbraco is the best CMS I've ever worked with. As such I've put in a lot of work extending Umbraco along with the occassional pull-request. Umbraco is open-source and has the best community bar none.
Archetype is the most difficult and successful project I've ever attempted. This project represents fantastic collaboration and creativity while continuing to remain popular over the last couple of years. It also serves as a great example on how extensible Umbraco is.
What started as a way to help my co-workers at the University of Notre Dame assimlate Umbraco faster, has now become a nice companion to the official Umbraco documentation.
When writing Learn Umbraco 7, I decided it would be nice to write and embed markdown books with Umbraco. As a result, Bookshelf was built to fill that need.
