The XWiki Seminar 2013 at Daneș, Sighișoara

Aug 01 2013

Enthusiasm, nature closeness, horse-riding, ostriches, statuses and planning, Summer Joy are just a few words that describe the XWiki Seminar 2013! The Seminar brought together once again the teams from Romania and France, welcoming at Daneș, Sighișoara also two other special guests: Caleb James Delisle, who constantly offers his help in the XWiki Research team and Denis Gervalle, who is actively involved in the XWiki Open Source community. Having Caleb and Denis made the Seminar even more special!

As in the previous years, during 10 days we organised and attended to team status presentations, workshops, brainstormings, trainings and several discussions about the XWiki company and product. We all took advantage of this event to learn more about what the other teams are doing and what difficulties are encountered, to discuss future directions and brainstorm for next period actions. The cross-team interactions could not have been missed, the XWiki Hackathon being organised this year as well and adding the XWiki BarCamp as a new surprise session.

The XWiki team worked hard, but also had a lot of fun! 

During the previous Seminar the team got involved into the XWiki Olympics, while this year the XWiki Treasure Hunt was the main teambuilding activity. Divided into teams, the XWikiers had to fulfill successfully several activities in order to gain golden coins and at the end to get the clues that led to the hidden treasures. 

The fun part was completed through some very nice activities organized for the XWiki team, such as horse riding, visiting the two Romanian medieval cities Sighișoara and Sibiu or dancing until morning and sharing the joy at the XWiki Summer Party. All the activities brought the smile on our faces and helped us get to know each other better.

We ended the Seminar with enthusiasm and positive attitude, eager to do our best for the next period!
