XWiki at CSSconf EU 2015

On the 26th of September, I’ve attended CSSconf EU 2015. It was really nice to see a conference focused mostly on CSS, and not combining very much other development or design topics. Doing front-end and being a front-end developer is considered very hip these days. We are living in an era where Photoshop or big heavy frameworks are fast getting deprecated. Unfortunately this era doesn’t care much about backwards-compatibility or support. People are trying to make everything faster and easier and don’t look too much in the past. If we want to stay relevant we should try to move a bit faster on the front-end development front, but I guess this is a problem any platform faces in these rapidly changing times. ...

Training about XWiki Development Process

On 7 Apr 2012 we had the pleasure to hold a training about XWiki's Development Process to about 30 students, most of them from "Gheorghe Asachi" Technical University of Iasi, Romania. 

We (Marius Florea, Eduard Moraru, Ecaterina Moraru and Raluca Stavro) presented the development process from a commiter's point of view, covering aspects like: 

  • release cycle, 
  • release process, 
  • roadmap, 
  • source management, 
  • build management, 
  • continuous integration, 
  • etc. 

We had demos on our major development tools (Git, Jira, Eclipse + plugins, Maven, Jenkins ) that are needed to create, maintain, test and develop our Java based project XWiki Enterprise.

You can have a sneak peek at our slides:

In the future we hope to encourage much more students to be part of the Open Source universe and to do development in the open.
