XWiki Partner Program Goes Live

As an open source company XWiki operates differently than many commercial software entities. A lot of that can be attributed to trust. 

You see, we trust in our contributors to help shape and evolve XWiki into the platform they envision, which later becomes the driving force behind the products we create. 

In return, our contributors trust that we will respect their time and efforts and work tirelessly to grow XWiki into the phenomenal platform it not only is, but continues to become. 

We also trust in our clients to believe in our ability and commitment to putting their interests first no matter what, and in return our clients trust us to do just that.

And now XWiki has another group of people we are asking to trust us, our sales partners. 

XWiki is pleased to announce that we are opening up a comprehensive partner program to select consultants, vendors, and systems integrators in an effort to expand our software and service offerings to the US. 

To learn more about XWiki's partner program you can go to http://www.xwiki.com/xwiki/bin/view/Partners/ for more information. 

XWiki will be at Javapolis 2007

Javapolis is the biggest and single most-important Java-related conference in Europe. We will attend to the conference on a booth with fellow OW2 projects such as eXoplatform & EBM Websourcing. Javapolis is a great event with new project demonstrations taking place at a tremendous pace every day. We will be looking forward to seeing you there. 

Among other things, we will demo the integration of XWiki Watch in eXo's Web OS:

Come and tell us whether you'll be coming on the dedicated XWiki Facebook Event.

Javapolis is taking place at the Metropolis in Antwerp, Belgium, a great venue that has now become available by tram from the city center. If you have never been there before, here is a tip: look for the Javapolis bag, every attendee has it on its back, making it easy to find your way back to the venue from wherever in the city. 

XWiki And Curriki In The International Herald Tribune

The IHT has a great article on Curriki, an innovative e-learning platform developed on top of XWiki. I already blogged about Curriki some time ago. Since then, the website has been undergoing continuous improvement as a course manual creator has been released. Says the article:

~They can also use its online tools, built by Sun and a French open-source company called XWiki, to share resources with others, write a textbook or build a curriculum out of content available on the site, which is so far available in English and Hindi.~

XWiki was chosen by Scott McNealy & Sun Microsystems thanks to its unique combination of Java technology, Open-Source & advanced features. They made XWiki the perfect platform to build Curriki upon, catering for easy information sharing, simple content creation and great user interaction at the same time.
