Basic Git Flow For Making Open Source Contributions on GitHub

What the heck is Git and GitHub and how do I use them?  There are so many open-source projects out there that I'd love to get involved in, but I don't have a clue how to Git what I need!  Can you help?!?!?  I have tried, but I have done nothing but embarrass myself and mess things up for others.

Simple 10-Step Testing for DNN Platform Release Candidates
A welcome change of recent is the introduction of the Release Candidate (RC) into the new release cycle for DNN Platform.  Having early access to an upcoming RC gives everyone valuable insight into what is coming in the official release.  Not only do we get a chance to learn and prepare for use of the new version within our own test environments and those of our clients, but we also have a chance to participate in community-wide testing and provide valuable feedback.  This is an area in which the Technology Ecosystem Advisory Group could really use your help.  The more people that test each Release Candidate, the greater the stability and quality of the platform.

DNN Archive Releases, OSS, and Answering the Call

If you’ve been paying attention you know that DNN Corp recently released the DNN archives to the community on GitHub.  However, those archives were missing releases and I was one of the first to ask for updates to the new archives. As DNN has been focusing more on empowering the DNN Community, I took this an opportunity to activate and take them up on that offer.  The end result is a re-release of the DNN archives on GitHub from DNN 9.x all the way back to the beginning with 1.x.
