A few days after the end of this wonderful meet-up of eZ Partners, here is a feel of what happened, and, most important, the slides of the Community track. Read on !


A warm meet-up in a Mediterranean set-up

What a delight to meet again in a warm and sunny place while the temperature is averaging around -10 Celsius elsewhere ! The community track made us busy for one full day, in this pretty sleek hotel (although a little black) of Lisbon down-town. The next grand meeting will be the eZ Conference (details to be announced very soon), but we'll meet before, regionally. Stay tuned !

For your pleasure now : the slides.

What's up for 2012 and 'Commun-engineering' ( or “reinforcing collaboration on the product development field, practical aspects” )

eZ Publish is an open-source project, backed by a vendor, a network of partners, and a large community. 2011 saw a huge surge of participation from the eZ Community with close to 500 direct code contributions.

After a detailed overview of what happened in 2011 and what is lining-up for 2012 in the eZ Community, this talk will give you a comprehensive view on "Commun-engineering", the fusion of the eZ Engineering taskforce and eZ Community members are collaborating on larger product features. From A to Z, how this exactly happens. An open cookbook for everyone to understand, and participate to eZ Publish's evolution, practically.
