Get Mobile with SilverStripe: Our Workplace Challenge


Amidst the craziness of December 2012, we held an in-house mobile app competition at SilverStripe Headquarters, coined the "Jedi Challenge". The topic for the Jedi Challenge was to interact on the move. The application needed to be mobile and multi-user focussed. There were really no boundaries with this competition, which saw a range of entries from a recipe app, to a real-time, multi-player game. Head over to ss.com for the full story.

Seeking support in SilverStripe's social sphere


I am a developer who uses the SilverStripe CMS. I have over four years experience in everything from small websites to large multi-user internal system tools. I was originally drawn to SilverStripe in my web developer infancy because of its strong and intuitive templating system, and I've never looked back. I give back to the community by providing support on the IRC channel, through which I've met new people and learnt a whole heap of things I never would have without the tools I'm about to talk about below.
