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. ...

XWiki is participating in Google Summer of Code 2013

XWiki has been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2013.

Google Summer of Code is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. We work with many open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund projects over a three month period. Since its inception in 2005, the program has brought together nearly 6,000 successful student participants and over 3000 mentors from over 100 countries worldwide, all for the love of code. 

This is our 8th year participating in the program and we are pretty excited about it. We value the participation in the program since it allows us to meet and discuss ideas with smart students from around the world. The past years brought great results, such as the WebDAV and RESTful remote access APIs, the Office importer, and the whole XEclipse project, just to name a few.

This year we're proposing a lot of interesting projects, from Live Notifications to XCLAMS Federated Servers, beside our regular mentors also having the support of mentors from the XCLAMS community.

The student application period will last from April 22 until May 3, 19:00 UTC. Students interested in applying for a project with XWiki should:

Let's work together with the community to make this a great Summer of Code!

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.
