Top 10 Kentico Related Posts of 2012

The holiday season has provided me with some rare downtime, as a result,  I thought it would be a good time to take a moment and reflect on the past year. 2012 was a very successful year no matter which way you slice it. The year started out with a bang for me personally, as I was named a Kentico MVP for the first time. I was and still am honored at having this distinction. My very own blog here at Mcbeev.com saw it’s traffic increase by over 25% from 2011, and the number of followers that I have on Twitter increased roughly about the same amount too. But, enough about me, let’s get to the good stuff.

One of the most significant events of 2012 when it comes to Kentico, was the the release of version 7. The 7.0 release focused on optimizing and improving the Kentico CMS Desk user’s and/or developer’s experience. The overall interface is also a bit snappier than other previous releases of Kentico. And of course the release also included a whole host of new features and functionality; On-site Editing, Advanced Workflow, Translation Management, Chat, Banner Management etc. etc..

But without any further ado, below is my list of the Top 10 Kentico Related Posts of 2012 at Mcbeev.com.

Creating a Campaign Programmatically in Kentico EMS

In case you missed it, this week my fellow Kentico MVP's and I took over Kentico Chief Evangelist Thom Robbins' Blog.

Kentico EMS provides a great way to create marketing campaigns that allow website owners and authors to measure the effectiveness of their different marketing activities. I really feel that it is a great tool to use. So in doing my part in the blog take over, I created a post about how to use the Kentico EMS API to create on-line maketing campaigns automatically and on a scheduled base. 

The full blog post can be read over on Thom Robbins' Blog on DevNet.
