SilverStripe core now on GitHub

Posted by Joanna on 14 March 2011

We have recently moved our source code from Subversion to GitHub. GitHub is a popular and hosted source code control system based on Git, an advanced successor to Subversion.

We've made this transition because it simplifies our software release process, as we can now more easily work on two versions of our code simultaneously - our current stable series (e.g. v2.4.x) as well as upcoming releases that contain vastly different code (e.g. v3.) GitHub makes it much easier for developers outside the company to contribute code to us. This is important because, getting our community more involved with core development is a key part of our plans for SilverStripe 3.0.

All events are free to attend, let you meet others using and developing with SilverStripe CMS, and cover a range of topics, including discussing the features in our next major upcoming software release, SilverStripe CMS v3.0. We hope you can make it to one!

Meetups and 3.0

Posted by Joanna McLeod on 23 February 2011

Last Wednesday around fifty SilverStripe CMS users gathered here in Wellington to have some drinks, chat about what they’re up to, and learn from each other.

We started out the event with presentations from community members Tim Klein and Cam Findlay. Then, for the first time, we publicly presented information about SilverStripe 3.0, with Ingo Schommer giving a well-rounded summary of what we’re up to, then answering the many questions asked by those present. It was really great to be able to meet so many people who are all contributing to the open source project. It’d be nice if we could travel the world doing these presentations to all the SilverStripe communities, but in lieu of that, we’ve got videos and slides to share with you - feel free to ask questions in the comments if there’s more you want to know. We’re also planning to hold meetups every two months, with another Wellington meetup on April 13, with more details to come.

Posted by Joanna McLeod on 11 February 2011
