XWiki's FOSDEM participation announcement

We are pleased to announce that, in less than a week, we will be attending, speaking and networking at FOSDEM 2017, in Brussels. 

The event will take place at ULB Campus Solbosch on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 February 2017. You can find us at zone K, level 2, booth 6 - "Wikis and CMS" - between the booths of Jenkins and OpenNMS. The full schedule and list of stands are now available. The entry, just like any other year, is free and registration is not required.  

On our behalf, Ludovic will tackle the subject of collaboration tools, between open source and closed source, with an in-depth comparison of such tools, in a Lightning Talk on Sunday, between 11:40 and 11:55, room 2215 (Ferrer). 

Also, Ecaterina will disseminate the complex mission of designers in Open Source, specifically the matter of design feedback in these communities. You can enjoy her group talk Sunday, between 12:10 and 12:50, in room AW1.121 and from 16:55 to 17:00 in the Closing remarks for the Open Source Design room. 

Looking forward to meeting you all and answer all the questions you might have about XWiki, CryptPad or our community. Until then, follow us on Twitter (XWiki and CryptPad) where we will keep you up-to-date with our latest developments. 

Amazon has chosen XWiki for its collaboration platform

The whole XWiki team is proud to welcome Amazon as a new XWiki SAS client!

Amazon has chosen XWiki as its next generation internal Wiki platform for documentation and collaboration.

It is being used by nearly 20,000 active users, mostly in engineering and product teams, as a collaborative knowledge sharing and documentation platform.


“At Amazon, we have been using wikis for many years. Wikis stimulate collaboration and sharing of information across teams and avoid information from getting lost in long email threads or file servers. We selected XWiki for its latest documentation features, its capacity to handle millions of pages, it’s capabilities to build custom modifications and its thriving developer community”, said the engineering manager of Amazon’s Wiki team.


XWiki SAS provided Amazon with training, support and development services to help launch the platform in the company. Amazon sponsored the development of key features including hierarchical pages, scripting rights and CKEditor integration in the open-source version of the platform.
