I'm new to N2 and like it.

What is the best way to get data from another database and present on the page?
I'm are going to make a new module? Any samples on making additional modules.

The same way you normally would I guess. Maybe using NHibernate or Linq to SQL. I've just put up a page on building addons that I'd like some feedback on.

Thanks for answer. I will have a look at it.

Is it also possible to make addons in VB.net?

Sure. I think most addons will be compiled so the language doesn't really matter.

I'll give try

Do you have a working sample of an addon?
Not just a template

Sorry for the delay. I had to create it fist, but now there is a add-on catalog add-on.
