The TikiFest, a tradition of the Tiki community, is a meeting between Tiki contributors (that usually only meet online). This is an opportunity to socialize, code wildly in group sessions, discuss wiki technology and culture, and plan the future of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. It is also a great opportunity for Tiki users to meet Tiki developers, and for each group to learn from the other.

There is some ongoing work to have some "Community Currency" features (see links below) added to Tiki6 re-using and extending the Payment system added in Tiki5, as well as some improvements to the social networking features of Tiki using pretty trackers. See "Barter" profile evolution.

But maybe some other tasks arise if other people join the fest :-):

  • Maybe investing some time to produce a new pdf handbook out of the updated Tiki Documentation structure? (however, developer time would be needed for that)
  • Adding some GUI to Workspaces management? (refactoring previous work from AulaWiki_tiki_4 Mod ?)


Tentative dates:
July 2010, Monday 19th - Sunday 25th.

Confirmed dates:


A few people can be accomodated in Xavi's flat or in a Xavi's neighbor flat (we both have old dogs, by the way). If more people come, we'll have to find other places (renting rooms in other neighbors flats in the same building or in the nearby, ...).

Distant participation

Using http://live.tikiwiki.org and taking notes to improve

luci Czech Republic
chibaguy (Gary) Japan
eromneg (Geoff) UK will join the BBB sessions if I can
Daniel Montreal - Will join the BBB sessions when possible by listening conversations
Nelson (nkoth) Canada Will join the sessions when possible.
Torsten Germany Tuesday and when possible

We had some issues with audio. We first managed to get sound working (at the TikiFestBarcelona) through a skype conference, because sound is not working at BBB through internet connection. But sound seems to be good using the phone line, so that we'll use the phone land line to broadcast audio for the distant participants.
You can join this conference by calling +1-613-366-1985 The conference room is 87036#.

In case we say at anytime (on irc) that we move to skype conference, if anyone else wants to follow through audio, please say so on irc and provide your skype id.


Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, Europe.

If just a few people, we'll arrange anywhere. When more than 3 people (all week, it seems), we will meet at the facilities of "Unió d'Entitats de la Marina" (UELM), one of the local NGO's using Tiki in the nearby, which previously offered their facilities for TikiFestBarcelona (plenty of space, wifi, white board, beamer, air conditioning):
