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.

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.

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.

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.

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:
