Wellington's August SilverStripe Meetup

Posted by Brooke Penny on 3 August 2012

It was a smaller group this month at the Wellington Meetup, ahead of WDCNZ which happened the following evening, but nonetheless we covered some interesting topics. It's been a busy couple of months for us here in the SilverStripe realm, with many small releases, but most noteworthy, our stable v3.0 release in June.

Following this milestone saw Sigurd Magnusson kick off the meetup by talking about what's really in v3, followed by thoughts for the future as we begin to talk about SilverStripe 3.1.

Hackathon wrap up: The winner is...

Posted by Kerstin Schuman on 10 July 2012

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.

30 hours of pizza, lollies and chit chat, of creating great things and meeting people online and in real life. The IRC channel was buzzing and everyone was quite excited. Some people in the office even built a SilverStripe fort. That was quite a paper framework. Sam fiddled around with his 3D printer and yes, some people even wrote some code.

Javascript Performance

Posted by Julian Seidenberg on 13 June 2012

Julian is one of our SilverStripe developers who works with the rest of the team on large projects, as well as acting as technical lead on projects of his own. He is an American citizen who has never lived in America. He was born and grew up in Germany, studied in the UK, and is now happily living in New Zealand, whose friendly, laid-back culture and natural beauty he values.

I love using SilverStripe and Javascript to create awesome web software. I would typically create a SilverStripe CMS interface for configuring the application, then pull all the required information out of the database into a template using SilverStripe’s template language, and finally use Javascript to transform the template into a wonderfully interactive page.

SilverStripe 3.0 beta 3: Fewer tabs, more awesome

Posted by on 28 May 2012

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.

We’re proud to announce the third beta release of SilverStripe 3.0! As you might expect, the changes get smaller and more incremental. A lot of the commits revolve around polishing the user experience following on from our usability tests.
