What is new in XWiki?

1. XWiki 10.x

The 10.x cycle is defined by having an improved usability for on-boarding new users and administrators: from protection against refactoring operations, to editing inline macro content, to more auto-suggests, to a faster user interface. We managed to have over 750 issues closed: 415 bugs, 160 improvements, 31 new features and more!

2. ONLYOFFICE online editors added to XWiki`s ecosystem

Users can perform all their editing tasks directly in XWiki without having to switch between the editor and their collaboration software anymore. Furthermore, multiple users can collaborate in real time and push changes directly to XWiki.

3. XWiki Cloud free for Open Source Projects

Open source projects requesting a cloud wiki, can host their wikis with XWiki SAS at the bronze level and receive regular updates.

4. GDPR compliance with XWiki`s cookies consent application

In light of the latest European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), our team created a Cookies Consent application to help XWiki users ensure compliance. It can be installed for free and customized in such a way that it matches each brand`s identity.

XWiki receives Best Open and Ethic Business Award

XWiki Best Ethic Business Award

ethic 

1. (noun) a set of moral principles, especially ones relating to or affirming a specified group, field, or form of conduct.

2. (adjective) relating to moral principles or the branch of knowledge dealing with these.

We are happy, humbled and privileged to be recognized as providers of ethic software and services, award given by CNLL - the Union of Companies of Free Software and Open Digital. We've been thinking about the meaning of this title - Best Open and Ethic Business - since the day of the awards ceremony, as it seems to follow us through the years. In 2013, OWcon awarded us with the Technology Council Special Prize for our ethical approach of doing business and for complying with the best Open Source practices.

What is it that makes us ethic, you might wonder. Here is a sum up of the values that we've followed for 15 years and why they are important to us:

Transparency

We think that transparency is the key to working on an open source project and it is fundamental to boost collaboration among different project members.

Openness

We believe in open standards, open protocols and formats, and open source as a more efficient way of developing, operating and integrating software solutions.

Collaboration

We are open to any party that wants to collaborate with us, whether they are individuals, companies or institutions. We strongly believe in using cooperative ways of building business solutions.

Meritocracy

We believe we should gain people's respect and recognition due to our work. We shall always make sure that everybody has access to our open resources on an equal basis and we will accept contributors based on the merit of their work and their skills.

Leadership

We lead the XWiki projects, empowering our community through the coordination and management of processes instead of exercising them through authority.

Excellence

We put maximum effort, dedication and care in everything that we do. We always strive for excellence.

Gratitude

We are grateful for the active involvement and interest of our community and for every contribution that we receive, regardless of origin, motivation, size and type.

We are happy to have this award join the one CryptPad received in November for being the “Best Startup for Privacy and Trust-Enhanced Technologies”.

2018 was a challenging but extremely rewarding year and we want to thank you for trusting our solutions and team. Looking forward to the see what 2019 has prepared for us emoticon_wink

XWiki @Paris Open Source Summit 2018

image for POSS article_BEGIN.jpg

Our team of brave XWikiers did it again! We`ve represented XWiki and CryptPad at Paris Open Source Summit 2018, event that got to its 4th edition. Between the 5th & 6th of December, 5000 participants had the occasion to attend around 200 conferences and get in touch with the latest technological innovations.

Our colleagues tackled four main topics during the conference: XWiki Solutions, CryptPad, GDPR, and Open Food Facts. Moreover, as a token of all the hard work in the past 15 years, we received the “Best Open and Ethic Business” award.

XWiki Solutions

Ludovic, our CEO, conducted a track on End-user Solutions for the Workplace. Providers such as Bluemind, Maarch, XWiki, eXoPlatform, ElasticSearch, Tuleap, BonitaSoft, SpagoBI, and RocketChat offered an insight into their solutions for Collaboration, Chat, Big-Data or Document Management.

In the same track, Clément, our Account Manager, had a speech on how the open source XWiki software developed, and how companies like SCOR, SNCF, SFR, Naval Group, Fidelia, ARS Hauts de France benefit from XWiki SAS solutions. Find out more about this topic by reading his presentation:

CryptPad

During the Summit, Ludovic had two important roles: he was both a trackleader and a speaker. His intervention as a speaker was focused on CryptPad and the need of a new approach for collaboration services based on end-to-end  encryption and zero-knowledge of user`s data in cloud services. Take a closer look at his presentation:

Aaron, who is the CryptPad CTO and part of the XWiki Research Team, held a presentation called CryptPad, Encrypted Collaboration, tackling the same issue as Ludovic`s: providing both the highest security of user`s data and real-time collaboration. For further details, read his presentation:

GDPR

Cristina, our DPO, had an intervention on the implementation of GDPR in IT companies by bringing to participants` attention some epic fails and XWiki`s example of good practice on enforcement of data protection measures. Check out the entire presentation below:

Open Food Facts

If you joined the Co-producing a free database round-table, you might have met Anca, our Client Service CTO, who debated about the new concepts of Open Data.

To sum up our experience, we had a blast during these two days. Meeting new people, establishing new connections, and impacting the Open Source Community made us look forward to next year`s edition.

XWiki at Capitol du Libre 2018

XWikiatCapitolduLibre.png

The past few weeks have been busy with multiple events we have attended - Capitole du Libre, Cloud Expo Europe Paris, Paris Open Source Summit - and our blog was on a brief hiatus. Worry not, as we are back with updates and some great news we are excited to share. 

Capitol du Libre is a weekend long event dedicated to free software that took place in Toulouse, France, between 17 & 18 November. It’s an event open to all audiences, with a wide variety of themes, activities and workshops. Ludovic, Anca and Clement attended it and tell us that it was a great experience and shared the experience of meeting so many open source aficionados.

If you didn’t make it, here’s a sneak peek of the talks of the event and, below, the talks Ludovic and Clement had.

We often hear that Open Source has won. Is this really the case? In this presentation, Ludovic showed that while Open-Source is now the code leader for many software, there is still software and services that are not available as free software, including many cloud services. Your data is always controlled by proprietary software and algorithms built on a large amount of open-source code. Why is this the case and what can the free and open source software community do to improve this situation? Find out how open business models and free software funding should evolve to enable more free and open source code in all areas.

Cloud services are increasingly used and your data is increasingly exposed. Even though cloud services "promise" to keep your data secure, you do not actually control what is put in place to keep your data and privacy secure. Many cloud services use your data to build advertising-based business models that read data and transfer it to advertising services. In this presentation, Ludovic demonstrated why a new approach is needed for collaboration software and services, based on end-to-end encryption and zero-knowledge by the cloud service. He showcased this approach implemented in the free project CryptPad.

When working in teams on a project, we often observe that people don't choose to use very collaborative solutions for their work. Documents get scattered across multiple folders or in emails, it gets hard to distinguish an old version of a document from a new one, and we miss the possibility to link documents between each others. Clement presented some of the most popular features proposed by XWiki to adapt the platform to company use cases and how XWiki can help any individual or team to build a knowledge base adapted to his needs. 

See you next year?

XWiki and its Women in Tech

XWiki's women in tech blog.png

This article originally appeared in PIN magazine.

XWiki is an organization active in the open source domain, offering its own product: a software used to build collaborative solutions and services. The company was founded in 2004 in France and since 2007 in Romania as well. At the time of publication of this article, our team consists of 39 employees split between the Paris and Iasi offices. Diversity in the workplace is important to us, and it came naturally, because we have always sought to hire the best person, regardless of age, gender, religion or any other external factor. With regard to gender distribution, the difference between the percentage of female and male employees is not significant in the company itself. The statistics for the Iasi office are, however, more interesting: the number of women considerably exceeds that of men.

We asked our female colleagues for testimonials on their experience in the IT world, from the point of view of their professional activity, but also from a personal point of view.

Ecaterina Moraru.png

Ecaterina Moraru - Lead Interaction Designer

I am one of the few high school colleagues who have ended up working in this field. I remember that when I was accepted into the Faculty of Computer Science, there were just a few girls taking the same courses, with the gender difference already marking this field. Besides, if you were passionate about gaming, you were even more rare. Today, things have changed quite a bit.

At XWiki, I'm an Interaction Designer. Even if what I do may seem a little "soft", I consider it a best choice, as it's a place a come to work with great enthusiasm. In Iasi, the field of Interaction Design and the entire area of User Experience are still in the beginning phase. I cannot say I had someone that I was able to learn from, but I believe I was able to find and implement solutions that made the software more accessible and easy to use.

XWiki was the first company in Iasi to develop an open source product and, even today, it is one of the few companies built around this philosophy. I always had this desire to contribute to the creation of a product, and now I'm part of the team in charge of developing the open source product. I take care of the specifications and interface of the new functionalities which we want to integrate into the product. I create prototypes and write code for the front-end. I collaborate with our international community and we decide together about the functionalities that would be implemented. The product I have been developing and contributing to for more than 10 years has more than 3 million downloads and users in more than 115 countries.

Instead of a conclusion, I consider that women can learn and work in any IT specialization. In addition, you have the opportunity to act and develop not only locally, but globally. There are now many projects and companies that promote gender diversity and encourage women to pursue a career in IT. Nevertheless, I believe that the power of example is the most powerful motivation: the more women who work in this field and talk about their experience, the more they will attract others who will want the same thing.

Cristina DeLisle.png

Cristina DeLisle - Office and Legal Administrator, DPO

I studied law with a specialization in Business Law, and I currently work at XWiki in the Paris office, after spending a year in the Iasi office.

My role is a combination of cross-functional skills, in areas such as human resources, law, data protection, accounting, technology sales - all because XWiki, my employer, is an open source company. The majority of my colleagues have a specialization in computer science and are professionals in this field, but other employee skills are also appreciated within XWiki.

I had the chance to meet great colleagues at XWiki, who inspire me to explore the technical side and go beyond my limits. I had the opportunity to participate and speak at IT conferences, where, considering gender differences, I found myself at a presentation where there were only men in the audience. It was one of the moments when I realized the disparity in the industry or sectors of the industry.

Fortunately, this problem does not exist at XWiki - almost half of the employees are women (including in management positions) - as well as there is no gender-based discrimination. I would like to find this model in general, in all IT companies.

I think it is important that there are examples of women who have made careers, in general, to find them in executive and leadership roles. The challenge is to ensure a balance between this model and meritocracy, which in most cases brings men into the recruitment process who are finalized with an offer. Moreover, gender discrimination in IT seems to be a real problem, if we take into account analyses that, fortunately, I have just read and not experienced from a personal point of view. I am happy to have women I admire on my team and I believe that such examples will ensure, over time, a numerical balance between the sexes in the technical field.

Diana Veron.png

Diana Veron - HR and Admin Coordinator

I had the opportunity to enter the IT industry in 2011, just after completing a Master's degree in Human Resources Management at the Faculty of Economics and Business Management, by obtaining a position as HR and Admin Assistant at XWiki. I have always dreamed of working in HR in the IT industry, because the challenges in this field (especially related to the recruitment process and employee motivation) have always attracted me. What I found at XWiki fully met my expectations: the work environment, the young and dynamic team, the international aspect and the way we communicate, the flexibility of the work schedule, the autonomy and the trust the management and my colleagues invested in me, the relationship with them, etc.

Even if, usually, in the field of HR we see mostly women, I had the opportunity to work also with men having this role at XWiki, and in my experience, gender is not a concern at all. As a member of the XWiki Executive Committee, I have always felt that my opinion counts and is taken into consideration, I am only satisfied because I have had the opportunity to contribute to strategic decision-making within the company. For me HR and the IT industry will always remain key aspects in my professional career and I am proud to lead my activity in such a rapidly changing industry.

IT is a dynamic industry and I have encountered challenges everywhere, but in my opinion the secret to success lies in the passionate performance of tasks and in being in the right professional environment, with the right team. Of course, there is also determination, curiosity, continuous learning and concentration of effort to achieve a high quality mission.

This year I became a mother, and I added new challenges to my current activity: I moved to France, started working remotely, and I am constantly working to maintain a balance between family and professional life. One of the major differences between Romania and France is the fact that, after the birth of the first child, mothers must be back at work immediately after maternity leave, which is only 4 months.

Oana-Lavinia Florean.png

Oana Lavinia Florean - Software Development Intern

I graduated the Computer Science high school, Grigore Moisil in Iasi, currently studying in the third year at the Faculty of Computer Science and I have been an intern at XWiki for 5 months. I therefore have experience strongly related to the IT field and contrary to what is said, I have not observed a great discrepancy between the number of women and men in the field.

At XWiki, I had my first internship, my first experience in a company, which gave me the opportunity to interact with the open source environment. I was part of the team that developed the open source product and had the opportunity to get in touch with a less well-known IT sub-domain in Romania. I collaborated with people from different countries, I have seen my contributions integrated into new versions of the product and I have improved, at the same time, my developer skills.

We do have the coolest colleagues, isn't it?

What about breakfast @ XWiki on International Week of Happiness at Work?

Though happiness is a common daily attitude of XWikiers, when we heard about the International Week of Happiness at Work we decided to celebrate it properly. Armed with smiley badges, colorful balloons and inspired by the emblematic "Breakfast at Tiffany's" theme, we asked ourselves "What about breakfast @XWiki?". As a consequence, both teams organized an early breakfast in Iasi and Paris, at the same time. 

In Paris, we served a typical French breakfast with croissants, pain au chocolat, brioches, fruits, all sort of sweets, glasses with emoticons and apparently some unicorns in the setting (because why not?). 

The morning gathered the XWikiers from the Iasi office to a classical Romanian breakfast with all sort of salty and sweet delights, cereals, juice, milk, motivational quotes and a lovely rustic arrangement.

Also some of our teleworkers shared with us glimpses of their breakfast experiences and it was fun debriefing afterwords the entire event on our internal chats.

Of course, everybody had a lot of coffee and we got our morning energy setting us for the rest of the work day.

Check out bellow some of our lovely settings from the Paris and Iasi offices. Also, if you want to join us, feel free to contact us and apply for one of our current XWiki opening positions.

GDPR compliance with XWiki's cookies consent application

XWiki cookie consent app.png

In light of the latest European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), our team has created a Cookies Consent application to help XWiki users ensure compliance. It is free to install and customize to match your brand identity. You can find installation instructions on our store.

But, first, does my organization need to be EU GDPR compliant?

There are two types of responsibilities regarding the protection of personal data: data “controllers” and data “processors”. It should also be noted that the personal data of employees is included in the scope of this regulation. So, the organizations that need to be EU GDPR compliant are:

  • Companies (controllers and processors) established in the EU, regardless of whether or not the processing takes place within the EU.
  • Companies (controllers and processors) not established in the EU offering goods or services within the EU or to EU individuals.

If your XWiki-based solution is serving individuals from the EU and you - or embedded third party services like Google and Facebook - are processing any kind of personal data, you need to obtain prior consent from the visitor/user. To obtain valid consent, you need to describe the extent and purpose of your data processing in plain language to the visitor/user, prior to processing any personal data.

CookieBanner.png

How does it work?

The GDPR Cookie Consent app enables you to achieve and maintain cookie compliance. With this app you can group all cookies into specific categories, from functional to marketing ones. You can set up a pop-up that asks for your user's consent to activate or disable the cookies or trackers.

Cookies can be grouped in the following categories, depending on the different tool types:

  • necessary: cookies which are mandatory and cannot be disabled;
  • preferences: cookies or trackers which are optional and enabled by default; they are only used to remember the user preferences;
  • statistics: cookies or trackers which are optional and enabled by default; they are used to record anonymous statistics;
  • marketing: cookies or trackers which are optional and disabled by default; they can record personal information.

CookieappAdmin.png

Configure the Cookie Consent app from the XWiki Administration

To configure the Cookie Consent app go to the Global Administration > Other > GDPR Cookie Consent Setup.

CookieAdmin.png

  • From the Administration you’ll be able to see the accepted cookies for the current user.
  • You’ll be able to configure the look (bar or square) and the content (labels, descriptions and call to actions) of the screen.
  • Most importantly you will be able to add the cookie scripts and trackers to the four categories (necessary, preferences, statistics and marketing).

CookieappAdmin1.png

Why should I install it?

Amongst the top advantages it has, the Cookie Consent app is free to install, use and customize to match your brand identity. It integrates seamlessly with XWiki, so you can set it up and relax knowing that you crossed cookies off your GDPR to-do list.

XWiki Seminar 2018

Time flies and here we are at the 10th edition of the awesome XWiki company Seminar. Both teams from France and Romania had a great time together in Brasov, at AnaHotels Sport. The theme we’ve chosen this year was around the topic of “bears”, considering the mountain location. 

In one week, we discussed a lot of topics regarding status of the teams, future planning, challenges and team life at XWiki. We also had a hackathon, participated in memorable HR activities and enjoyed a lot of leisure time. We’ve even witnessed together a moon eclipse. 

For the trip day, some of us decided to test their adventure spirit at Aventura parc and Canionul Sapte Scari. We also had a lot of fun discovering the Bran Castle and the city of Brasov.

We invite you to check out some of our photos to have an overview of the wonderful time we spent together at the XWiki 2018 Seminar.

If you wish to have a glimpse of last year’s Seminar, you can do that by clicking here.

If this convinced you to come with us next time to the XWiki 2019 Seminar, please take a look at our opened positions inside XWiki.
