  • How to Migrate from .NET MVC 5 to .NET Core for Kentico Xperience
    Brian McKeiver    —       —    Article

    .NET Core and .NET 5 have been available for some time now and .NET 6 will be released any month now. However, the majority of existing Kentico Xperience MVC sites previous to version 13 were created in .NET MVC 5. This situation is especially true for Kentico 11 and Kentico 12 MVC versions as those previous versions weren't yet ready for and basically incompatible with .NET Core. So, what's a .NET and Kentico developer to do if they have been working only in MVC 5?


  • 25 Reasons to Move to Kentico Xperience MVC
    Brian McKeiver    —       —    Article

    Even in 2021, I am still having multiple conversations with existing Kentico Xperience clients from a business, executive, and/or marketing standpoint about moving from Portal Engine to MVC. Most of my conversations revolve around people who are having difficulties to fully understand why a rebuild of a site in MVC is necessary. These conversations around the migration from Portal Engine to MVC are often times thought of as only purely technical conversation. This is actually a common response, as many of the benefits are stated in a technical way. However, I’m here to tell you that this technical only consideration should be broadened into multiple other considerations.

I figure that if I am having this conversation multiple times, there must be other people having it to with their clients. Why not answer it fully in writing and in a holistic way, that way all of us in the Kentico Xperience community are able to use it as a resource for all clients out there who have Portal Engine based Kentico Xperience sites and are considering what to do next.
