Mid year hackfest (SilverStripe Wellington)!

**IMPORTANT NOTE**
To get access please txt Cam on[masked] 0351.

It's that time again... time to get together and work on SilverStripe core improvements, modules and your own projects.

We also encourage new users to pop along if you need some help getting started or setup on your local machine using best practices (Cam our Community Awesomeness Manager will be around to give you a hand).

For more seasoned SilverStripers we'll look to set some areas of the 3.2 version of SilverStripe (the next future version) that you might be able to work on or any issues and bugs in the current 3.1 version

Please leave us some comments to let us know what you might like to see or do at the hackfest. 

We will also be running a parallel hackfest on the same day up in the SilverStripe Auckland offices (http://www.meetup.com/SilverStripe-Auckland/events/190642722/).

Happy hacking.

    I'm sorry, I had to change my RSVP to No as I have other events colliding tomorrow which magically didn't disappear as I hoped.
    I'm definitely looking forward the output.

    What I was struggling with lately and maybe can be addressed tomorrow too was modules tagging. Currently only CMS and framework can be used with Composer with specified version tag, lots of other modules need to be just dev-master as there is no tag at all. The main issue behind is that Composer clones such dependencies instead of downloading and caching them so every install fetches the code again and again.

      ok, --prefer-dist switch for composer update or composer install helps to cache the resources, but having a proper tag/releases would still be cool :-)

      Michal, would you be interested in writing up a section for the documentation about this point? I'm happy to help with editing and making sure it gets online in the current docs.

    Hey Cam enjoyed the hackfest - managed to get a good installation of ss on my laptop with thnks to your screen cast- made it very easy to instal. I will email my feedback on the screencast. Good 2 meet the 'A team Silverstripers'. Oh yeah..pizza was great too. Look forward to another one soon ..ie both pizza and hackfest.

    I'm currently looking into documentation issues, I would like to run a facilitated discussion around how we might improve them and perhaps look to map out a set of categories/taxonomy to help reorganise the docs in a more meaningful way.

    June 23, 2014

    • David D.

      Yep. That would be good - I have been working on this recently - a little more progress but will try reinstalling again shortly.

    • David D.

  • David D.

    Hopefully wont miss out on too much ie discussion on documentation / laptop installs- some home responsibilities will get me there about 11am.

    It would be great if we could somehow include us Auckland folk in this, especially since we clearly have the smarter team up here :P

    Perhaps a skype linkup or something.

    June 20, 2014

    • Cam F.

      Yes a great idea. I'll see if we can sync this up and get a listing on the AK meetup page.

    • Cam F.

      Stevie, we are going to run a parallel AK hackfest. If you were keen on helping organise please hit me up [masked]

    Suggest we overlap it with a SilverStripe hackday Friday and go for another live streamed 24 hour hackathon. Next monthly hackdays are scheduled for Fri 4th July and Fri 1st Aug.

      Hey Ed, we are actually going to look at planning a parallel Auckland hack :)

      June 23, 2014

    • Ed L.

      As long as the Auckland one is also 24hr, unlike last time ;) I'm happy to be the SS employee that stays the whole time :P

  • Cam F.

    Ok date and location is set! Drop us a line to let us know what you are keen to work on.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
