Hackathon wrap up: The winner is...


Ten days ago we celebrated the stable release of SilverStripe 3 with a worldwide SilverStripe Hackathon. 30 hours of hacking cool stuff with the latest version of our most favorite tool.

SilverStripe 3.0 beta 3: Fewer tabs, more awesome


Core Developer Ingo Schommer is a bit of an icon in the SilverStripe community. Ingo is the person that bundles a lot of the community’s contributions and feeds it back into the core. In his free time, Ingo loves to work on documentation for SilverStripe which eventually resulted in the first SilverStripe book. He also has an impressive 80’s pop music collection in his iTunes library. Going back in time also meant moving back to Germany last year. Due to the time difference between NZ and DE, he now works crazy hours remotely for SilverStripe.
