I have recently started working with DotNetNuke, this is my first post in the DotNetNuke category, so expect I will be posting more often here in this section.
To start with, I would like to point all DNN developers about a great link where they can download CodeSmith Templates for creating DotNetNuke Modules.
You can visit: VS.NET 2003 Project Templates for DotNetNuke to download the templates you can use to create a new module.
You can alos check this great article, that helps you out develop your first Module in DotNetNuke 3.x, located at: DotNetNuke Random Image Module - Tutorial
That was my start with Custom Modules or Private Assemblies in DotNetNuke.
Enjoy DotNetNuking !!
