Another of those very lazy posts where I'm sharing links to content by other people, other content that I want to be able to refer back to in the future, admittedly!
The steps are broadly similar, but the key take-out that I'm calling out from this is that LinqPad is an excellent way to open the SQLCE database that you can use as a backing store for Orchard. More often than not I use a SQL Server Express instance when working on code for Orchard, but that's just because I have a a couple of really quick machines sat at less than 100% utilisation so having a SQL Server instance on them makes sense. When I'm not at home though, swapping to SQL CE just works and using LinqPad is a great way to be able to interrogate and spelunk the database behind Orchard in that instance.
How To Not Hate Public Speaking
This comes in a part 1, and part 2 form. Both parts make for a really good read, Steve Gordon has a writing style that's approchable and easy to digest. He's also promised that there's more to come on the subject of public speaking - so definitely worth keeping an eye out for that!
My skillset has matured somewhat since then, which you'll probably see from the posts here. You can read a bit more about me on the about page of the site, or check out some of the other posts on my areas of interest.
