BigBlueButton and Multilingual Improvements Emerge from TikiFest Ottawa

Rick -

At the most recent TikiFest in Ottawa, Canada, several Tiki Community members met to socialize and contribute their talents to the future of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. For four days (August 15 - 18), the attendees (including several remote participants) discussed, planned, and coded many features and enhancements planned for Tiki 6.

The TikiFest ended with a wine-and-cheese social at the Code Factory in Ottawa, hosted by Citadel Rock, Blindside Networks, Pondstone Communications, and AvanTech.net, all of whom are active participants in the Tiki and BigBlueButton communities.

The cornerstone of the TikiFest was to improve the integration between Tiki and BigBlueButton that was first introduced in Tiki 5. Additionally, a full day of the event was reserved for various internationalization (i18n) topics, including:

  • Establishing a collaborative multilingual glossary
  • Creating a translation server
  • Making it easier for the Tiki Community to contribute translations


See http://tiki.org/TikiFestBigBlueButton to review all items from this event (including pictures and video from the event).

Several TikiFests are planned for the upcoming months in Montréal, New York City, and Berlin. See the Tiki Community calendar at http://tiki.org for details.

For information on Tiki 6, the next generation of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware (planned for October 2010), see http://dev.tiki.org/tiki6.

TikiFest Barcelona Wraps Up With Great Progress

Rick -

The most recent TikiFest recently ended in Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain) on July 18. At this TikiFest, the second in Barcelona, more than 20 Tiki developers, consultants, and end-users met (including others via video conference) to work to improve and upgrade Tiki features, as well as to discuss the future of Tiki development.

Led by long-time Tiki Community members (including some board members of the Tiki Software Community Association) Marc (marclaporte), Louis-Philippe (lph), Jean-Marc (jyhem), Jonny (jonnyb) and Xavi (xavi), great progress was made for the next major Tiki release. Tiki 6, planned for October 2010), will include many of the items discussed and coded during this TikiFest, such as:

  • Payment system using "CCLite" (a free software web application to support Community Currency management within and among barter networks)
  • Fixing encoding issues (when upgrading Tiki under certain specific scenarios)
  • Cron-like features (such as automatically changing tracker item status and sending email users if their tracker items do change within a specific amount of time. This is especially useful for Barter networks and Bug Trackers.
  • Identifying ways (through the Newsletters and Group Watches featurse) to allow Tiki site administrators to easily distribute content to users, while allowing the users an option to unsubscribe
  • New profile "Easy Blog" to easily install common blogging features (such as blog archives, image headers, etc.) for Tiki sites (http://profiles.tikiwiki.org/Easy+Blog )

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.

The following TikiFests are being planned

This is your chance to get involved with the Tiki Community.

Announcing the first ever TikiFest in New York City being held from January 14-18, 2010!
tw:TikiFestNY is a big bug squash! The idea is to knock out as many bugs as possible and have as much fun as possible doing it. If a bug takes more than 30 minutes to fix, then we move on to the next one. Also, invites will be going out locally for an introduction to Tiki presentation on Saturday afternoon followed by refreshments. Hope lots of people can make it! Remote participation is also possible for those that can't. Find complete information at tw:TikiFestNY.

A tradition in the TikiWiki community, a TikiFest is a meeting between Tiki contributors (that don't usually meet). This is an opportunity, usually, to drink adult beverages, get some laptops out and code wildly in group sessions and/or discuss about wiki technology and culture, etc. depending the mood and context. It is a great opportunity for Tiki users and Tiki power users to meet some of the developers and learn more stuff biggrin
