SilverStripe staff are on some long excursions from New Zealand in coming weeks, so we're planning to host developer meetings to showcase SilverStripe while we go!
This blog post will be updated with venues. Please join us, and spread the word; key SilverStripe staff are not in these cities every day! If you have specific things you'd like to learn from or share with us at the meetings, comment below.
Last Sunday, a group of local developers came together in Wellington for the monthly SuperHappyDevHouse meeting.
Ingo Schommer did a talk on ModelAdmin (see 25 minute recording), and Nicolaas, one of the most prolific SilverStripe-website builders in our community, offered his thoughts on why SilverStripe beats building your own hand-built PHP solution:
ModelAdmin is a powerful new feature in SilverStripe 2.3.0 that lets developers build user-friendly web-based interfaces to manage complex, related data.
"SilverStripe – Das umfassende Handbuch" is now in German bookstores and available online to purchase for €39.90.
At 450 pages, it provides a more structured and comprehensive set of SilverStripe technical documentation than what is currently available at doc.silverstripe.com, so we strongly encourage German developers to buy the book and become a much more educated, sophisticated SilverStripe developer!
To coincide with SilverStripe 2.3.0, the forms, newsletter, and blog modules have been released.
Details on each module are described below.
SilverStripe v2.3.0 is now available to download! This release brings thousands of updates, and shows our continued effort in making SilverStripe's underlying codebase a tool for professional website developers and the CMS a user-friendly and efficient interface for non-technical content authors.
We've been invited to be the theme for their March event. We're planning to show people how to use our ModelAdmin feature to quickly build administration interfaces, and give pointers on how to contribute to our open source project. If you've got a pet bug or feature, you might even be able to bribe us to solve it with a beer!
Over the past two months we've made an impressive number of improvements to the upcoming version of our software, SilverStripe v2.3.0.
Release Candidate 3 is now available. Please help test it and submit bugs. Based on the importance of bugs raised in coming weeks we will either relabel this as a stable version or produce a release candidate 4.
This brings the material up to date for our upcoming version of SilverStripe 2.3.0, and is part of our overall efforts to continually improve our documentation.
If you want to meet SilverStripe developers in San Francisco later this month, you're in luck!
Two members of our open source community, Jep and Phillip, are hosting an after-work meetup for anyone interested in learning about and discussing SilverStripe. We hope you can make it!
