Global Meeting Of XWiki Members

Dec 20 2006

Today for the first time all members of XWiki's France Team gathered in Paris. Ludovic, Luis, Vincent, Laurent, Jean-Vincent, Jeremi, Felix, Rafaello, Stephane, Thomas and me were all present. We had many interesting discussions about XWiki, where we are and where we want to be. The team is young and dynamic and I am glad to be working with them.

The meeting gave us the opportunity to review what the team has achieved in terms of projects until now. We have been building various applications for many clients lately. From a cluster of competitiveness' website (Cap Digital) to an intranet (NEC France), from a community website (Mandriva Club) to an e-merchant solution (BestVentes)... This meeting was a welcome opportunity to find out more about what we can do and how we do it. Everybody here has a clearer view of what we are able to do, and honestly it is quite amazing. I have been here for about 2 months by now and I keep discovering new potential uses of XWiki every week !

In the afternoon, we had presentations from 3 of our partners, developing their solutions on top of XWiki's. We had overviews of Chronopolys, Metaware in association with Kap IT and Nearbee. They are both quite different and potentially complementary in terms of what they have to offer. It was interesting to see them discussing and exchanging inforamtion about what they have managed to do with XWiki !
