Blog posts for December 2014

Latest news from the XWiki community (November 2014)

Because our community is important, we have decided that each month we will be sharing some news from the XWiki community. To start we would like to mention several events:

  • Bug fixing day: in November, there were 4 Bug Fixing Days (the latest one was held on November 28). The goal of these special days is to have the maximum number of XWiki committers and contributors work together on a focused topic for the day.
    58 bugs (33 real fixes) were closed;
  • XWiki 6.3 was released and is now available. This release provides a great stabilization of the Flamingo Skin, and includes other improvements that are presented in the release notes;
  • For two days (Oct 31 - Nov 1, 2014) XWiki community members were present at the Design Jam event in Iasi, Romania. They presented the design process inside open communities.

See you next month!

XWiki December Day 2014

2014 was a year full of challenges and accomplishments and what better way to celebrate than having a dedicated XWiki Day when all the team gets together? So, WE MADE IT HAPPEN!

The XWiki December Day was the day when the XWiki France, Romania and Algeria teams had the opportunity to virtually spend a whole day together. Enhancing the winter holidays spirit, we tried to value as much as possible this day, expressing in the same time our thankfulness and sharing of any kind: Thankfulness to the people that contributed to what XWiki is now and that continuously show their involvement and dedication & sharing of ideas, knowledge, gifts and moments.

We enthusiastically started our day with the "XWiki Global" session, where Ludovic Dubost, Founder and CEO of XWiki, together with Guillaume Lerouge, Director of Sales and Marketing, presented the recent news concerning the company and the current status of the sales, followed by a discussion between the team members on these topics. 

We continued our day with the All Hands Meeting led by Vincent Massol - the "Roadmap/ Brainstorming for XWiki 7.x": with the Open Source spirit, every team member was coming with proposals for improving the XWiki product, discussing and voting on what we should focus on for the next period and outlining the priorities.

In the end, we focused on creating memorable moments that certainly will stay with us for a long time, we enjoyed the gifts that we received from Secret Santa and the XWiki Dinner, which this year gathered the XWikiers of each office, in the same time.

If next year you want to share the same moments with us, check out our openings and find your right place in the XWiki team!

Until then, Merry X-Mas to all of you and a Happy New Year!
