Seeking support in SilverStripe's social sphere


I am a developer who uses the SilverStripe CMS. I have over four years experience in everything from small websites to large multi-user internal system tools. I was originally drawn to SilverStripe in my web developer infancy because of its strong and intuitive templating system, and I've never looked back. I give back to the community by providing support on the IRC channel, through which I've met new people and learnt a whole heap of things I never would have without the tools I'm about to talk about below.

So. You're a developer who has (perhaps recently) discovered SilverStripe. That is great! You're loving how easy its sleek UI and extremely supportive framework makes your life when it comes to developing websites or web applications. However you've just come across an issue that you're having trouble solving. Maybe it's a question about how something works, what the best way to achieve something might be, or maybe how to troubleshoot a problem you're having with the system. Perhaps you just want to say "Hi" to the community. Whatever your reasons, SilverStripe has a variety of methods to enable you to contact people who are willing to offer you support.

Numbers and Prizes


Geeks love numbers, and colourful T-shirts. So this blog post is about both. Numbers help us to measure and compare. For our open source product, lots of curves are pointing upwards these days, which is fantastic news. And we'd like to reward the community for the significant increases we see in most of these numbers – but more on this later.
