Orchard, Azure, and Jint by Sebastien Ros

Orchard: Modular ASP.NET MVC framework 

Orchard is an open source content management system built with ASP.NET MVC and NHibernate. This session will be about how Orchard works and how it can impact how you build modular ASP.NET MVC applications.


We deployed 750 individual blogs on Azure running with Orchard including Scott Guthrie’s, using a single Azure instance. This session will explain what challenges we solved to support high density websites hosting.


Jint is an open source Javascript interpreter in .NET. This session will show how interpreters can be done in .NET, and why a Javascript interpreter can be useful in many scenarios.

About the speaker:

Sebastien is a developer at Microsoft in the ASP.NET team and the lead developer on the Orchard CMS project. He co-founded a Microsoft .NET specialized company named Evaluant in 2001, giving training and consultancy services on the .NET platform. He has developped several open source .NET projects like an ORM, a JavaScript interpreter, a mathematical expressions interpreter and a Document storage library.

Practical information

As HEPIA is closed for the summer, the facilities are slightly less accessible in the evenings. The small door on Rue du Jura ( https://goo.gl/maps/q0lWh , http://imgur.com/R7VRWCP ) will be held open to participants between 18.20 and 18.35. Please don't be late as it's quite far from the classroom to the door to come and open for you.

    This was a great talk and I like that the fact that it was densely packed with lots of material and a variety of topics.

    During the Jint presentation, I was studying & hacking away on Jint's code base. This week, I took the parser out of Jint & turned it into a stand-alone project called “Escape” (see http://www.nuget.org/packages/Escape). I thought it would be cool to separate the parser from the interpreter so the two can evolve separately, and more importantly, allow the .NET community to have a shared JavaScript parser infrastructure (like Esprima) so we can build various tools on top, including other parsers, compilers, code analysers & so on…and don't forget to share back, of course. ;) Thanks again to Sébastien for doing the initial port of Esprima (burning a lot of midnight oil, I'm guessing) and now we all have a fantastic opportunity to get creative! :)
