As we discussed at BeeCon, we plan to host another Global Virtual Hack-a-thon in September. We have a date selected, and will have a page up for projects and teams in about a month's time.
 
This September, we will continue our tradition of holding day-long Global Virtual Hack-a-thon as part of Office Hours. We will start on September 23 at 9AM in Sydney, and hack as much as we can until 6PM in San Francisco. Join us for whatever portion of the day you are available.

Details on how we will run the hack-a-thon will be announced in early September. Until then, think of projects you would find interesting and try and recruit a team to work with you.

We will be collaborating between teams using #alfresco IRC chat at Freenode, and we will be demoing our work using Google Hangouts at this G+ event page.

We are collecting questions for Office Hours with John Newton. If you were at dinner with the founder of Alfresco, what would you ask him?
 
Join us for another live session of Alfresco Office Hours, where you get to meet the people that create the Alfresco products, ask questions, and discuss their work.

In this session we talk with John Newton, CTO and co-founder of Alfresco. He not only sets the technical vision for Alfresco, but his ideas have influenced the broader document management industry and the future of enterprise software generally. In addition to your questions, we plan to discuss the future of Alfresco products and how they will change the future of work.

Registering for the event here will give you a reminder email. If you leave a question on this page, we will address it during the session. Or you can contact us at community@alfresco.com. Otherwise, ask your questions on http://chat.alfresco.com during the live session. The event web site will include the YouTube video and an embedded webchat so that you can participate in the discussion.

Sharing the next Tech Talk Live with this group.

Ole, Gab, and Martin have released a bunch of improvements to the SDK, and Ole wants to tell you about them.
 
Tech Talk Live is a monthly, live session devoted entirely to a technical topic related to Alfresco. This month we will discuss the latest release of the Alfresco SDK, version 2.1.0.

The Alfresco SDK is the easiest way for a developer to get started building applications on top of the Alfresco platform. Pull the SDK from Maven Central and take advantage of a complete development environment including hot code reloading, testing, and accompanying documentation and samples at docs.alfresco.com and GitHub. The latest release of the SDK makes it an even more productive environment, and this presentation covers those improvements.

Registering for the event here will give you a reminder email. If you leave a question on this page, we will address it during the session. Or you can contact us at community@alfresco.com. Otherwise, ask your questions on #Alfresco during the live session. The event web site will include the YouTube video and an embedded webchat for our IRC channel so that you can participate in the discussion.

Don't forget about Tech Talk Live next week. There were some very interesting hack-a-thon projects, and it is going to be fun to hear how they went.

Share your experience in the Alfresco Developer Survey (and have a chance to win an Oculus Rift)

https://www.research.net/r/YV75YWN

Alfresco wants to better understand how you use our products and where you go for help with your projects. We want to know which developer tools you’re using and why, how you are using Alfresco, and what you plan to do differently in the future.

The survey results will help us to roll out some new tools. We want to make sure we are focusing our efforts in the right areas.

If you respond by May 27, you will have a chance to win an Oculus Rift (ships in August 2016) or the equivalent in Amazon Vouchers. At the end of the survey, leave your email address so that we can contact you if you win.

I need to get my proposal in!

Edit: I just submitted my two proposals:
"The Product Vision for Alfresco Community Edition"
and
"How Alfresco Thinks about Open Source"

I spend all day thinking about these topics, so it will be interesting to find out if anyone else cares about the details.

It's an interesting idea, but you might want to wait to advertise it until all the attendees have already booked travel.

I keep sharing events in the "General" section of this Community. Is that useful? Should we create a sub-category for event announcements?

Google+ has an "Events" section of the community, but I'm not clear how to get stuff to show up there.

The Alfresco UX team is a new part of our product development process, and I expect you will find it interesting to know more about their role in the creation of the product and how you can participate.
 
Join us for another live session of Alfresco Office Hours, where you get to meet the people that create the Alfresco products, ask questions, and discuss their work.

This month we will be joined by the Alfresco UX Team. This newly formed team is responsible for driving user experience design and user-centric innovation at Alfresco. They ensure we continually drive to simplify our product experiences and deliver value to our customers by researching user behavior and gathering feedback. One of the topics we will cover is how you can engage directly with the Alfresco UX team and help us build products that you will love! You don't have to wait for the event to work with the UX team, but can sign up here:

During the time I lived in Provo, I had Patterson's do all the work on my Subaru. Though he is the most competent mechanic I know, he was also one of the least expensive. He took the time to answer all of my questions and teach me a lot about my car. I am grateful for his help.

Meeting location for the Peckham Ward of the LDS Church (Mormon). As a visitor, I found them very welcoming. I feel like I made some great friends and I enjoyed worshiping Christ with them. We had good discussions about the scriptures, and I learned a lot. Services start at 10AM on Sundays.

Room was dirty. Door was broken from a previous forced entry and wasn't repaired properly so it wouldn't open reliably. There was some party going on all night with loud music. Breakfast wasn't great and cafeteria area was in disrepair. My next night in Laramie I stayed at another hotel.

Meeting place for the Slough Ward of the LDS Church (Mormon). As a visitor, they were very friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed worshiping Christ and I learned a lot from the scriptures. Meetings start at 10AM on Sundays. When asking directions, people said I should go to the "5 Points" as the closest intersection.

Had a long conversation with the estimator. Very nice and knowledgeable guy. He recommended I wait a few years to see if things get worse before paying the money for a repair. I appreciated his honesty!

For years PC Discounters have helped me meet my employer's needs, my client's needs, and my personal needs. They are very open with advice, and if they can't get a job done they tell me who can. From personal computers to racks of servers, I trust these guys with my business.
