Videos from Auckland, NZ Meetup June 2014


UPDATE: have added Lee's video on push notifications and single page mobile apps with SilverStripe.

A big thanks to all the community members that made it along to the Auckland Meetup, we have the first two videos from the talks available below. There is still one more to come from Lee Blazek and note we won't be posting Jame Pluck's (@papabearnz on twitter) talk up as he will be delivering a more featured version of this talk at the WDCNZ conference at the end of July (which we are also sponsoring this year).

What's up docs? An investigation into SilverStripe documentation


Let's face it, a common gripe in open-source is documentation. SilverStripe is no exception here, though we would like to do something about it. While we have had some semblance of developer documentation up at http://docs.silverstripe.org for some time, it often takes a back seat in favour of more technical and code related contributions from the community. In fact, we have raised the issue in the past and made some significant improvements, however it's time for more. The key thing to remember here is that that documentation has been and will continue to be a collaborative effort built up by contributions from the community (so a big thanks to all those that have contributed thus far!).

SilverStripe from a ruby on rails developer perspective


SilverStripe from a ruby on rails developer perspectiveI have been learning to code for a few years now, just in bits and pieces, through university classes, events, and self-study (mostly online). I feel comfortable writing HTML and CSS, and have been working on learning how to make complete web applications, using Ruby on Rails and dabbling in SQL and C#. I’ve also played around with other languages online including PHP so I was quite excited about the opportunity to learn some SilverStripe, to see what it is like and what it’s great for, and to start building some cool things!

AngularJS powered by SilverStripe


angularjs and silverstripeMy recent blog post on Backbone unit testing mentioned AngularJS, as being one of the more popular emerging JavaScript frameworks. A common use case for AngularJS is filtering lists of data such as products. I’ve put together an example application which creates a simple product catalogue and more importantly highlights the concept of AngularJS and SilverStripe working together.
