~5-minute shares that are either:
- code share (requiring little to no preparation)
- higher level show and tell of a site feature
- an eZ Publish best practice question to ask the group

Basic parameters for this session:

- First item is to have someone volunteer to take notes to be posted on the message board
- No initial round of intros; introduce yourself before you speak the first time
- There is no set agenda; the session is successful the more people participate
- Session ends after 30 minutes or no one has any more questions or shares, whichever is sooner
- Additional questions or diving deeper between code shares can be done on our mailing list: [masked]
- Have fun! All questions are encouraged, and we want to provide a comfortable environment for all skill levels

Time listed is Pacific time.

    Joe Kepley (from Blend Interactive) is building his new blog in eZ 5. His goal is to build it entirely within the eZ5 framework. Progress is good; he is seeking input from the community on what people feel are best practices. As well, all the work is being tracked on Github, with each major feature being developed in dedicated branches: The intention being to create a tutorial.

    and provide feed back.

      Great initiative. I like where this is coming from: comparing the eZ Publish 4 way of doing things to the new way of doing things. And the git branch approach is simple yet brilliant.

      Suggestion: it is a hybrid tutorial + blog; some people will be reading each post as you go and some will want to follow from the beginning. So there should be an index that is ordered by date ascending to show the logical order of the tutorial posts. Buuut, I'm guessing that's where the Series comes in.

      That's the intent, and in fact the posts in the series should have that now. I'll eventually make a post about how that works, but I'm going through and tuning up the tutorials first to make sure the steps will work for everyone.

    Geoff Bentley is working on translations. He noted that most of the existing translation tools (eg:
    ) have issues with HTML entities and that we generally shouldn't have to deal with entities in the first place.

    Also he noted this tool to allow direct editing of translation files:

    We all noticed that Felipe has not posted his slides to the slide-share
    (https://joind.in/event/view/1221) although that presentation was pretty fantastic in terms of introducing methods of handling translations. (Felipe, please drop me a note if you want the credentials for adding your slides there.)

    Geoff is looking forward to reporting back in more detail on how he finally decides to manage his current solution. And Joe K. is going to do some looking into the Blend archives for their solutions to share with Geoff.

    Peter Keung (from Mugo) offered a couple of JavaScript insights.

    The use of the JS magic variable "arguments" to be able to capture and log calls to JS functions.

    A very handy JS bookmark that allows one to popup a window on any page using Omniture; the window provides a full dump of all the Omniture variables. This is so good that if you use Omniture at all, you should be aware of this:

    javascript:void(window.open("","dp_debugger","width=600,height=600,location=0,menubar=0,status=1,toolbar=0,resizable=1,scrollbars=1").document.write("<script language=\"JavaScript\" id=dbg src=\"https://www.adobetag.com/d1/digitalpulsedebugger/live/DPD.js\"></"+"script>";));

    http://translate.readthedocs.org/projects/translate-toolkit/en/latest/ is the latest source for the translation tools mentioned, for converting .TS files to other formats.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
