Use your C# skills to build your next website with Orchard, the popular content management system based on ASP.NET MVC.

You’ll create, manage, and display dynamic content with out-of-the-box functionality, and then build themes, modules, and widgets to customize the site.

      Comments about oreilly Orchard CMS: Up and Running:

      The book would be best for someone who is looking for a beginner's book on Orchard. The book walks through the process of creating a fairly simple Orchard website. Short with around 110 pages the book doesn't go into much depth of the subject.
      The book's best use is as a learning tool, reading through the book while creating a website.
      Again, this book is good for starters, but the reader shouldn't expect to be proficient after reading the book.
