Happy Birthday Tiki

Author: Rick - Published

Nine years ago this month marks the initial release of the Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware project. Known then as TikiWiki, the initial release (version 0.9) included a mere fraction of the features available today. Since 2002, the Tiki Community has become one of the largest open-source teams in the world and is in the top 2% of all projects on Ohloh.

A new way to contribute to Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware

Author: Rick - Published

Unlike other open source applications, the Tiki project is supported entirely by its community. The Tiki Software Community Association, an incorporated non-profit entity that was formed in 2009 as the legal steward for Tiki, is now accepting financial contributions from those who wish to support Tiki monetarily. Donations will be used to support the Tiki community hardware infrastructure, domain fees, TikiFests, and other community expenses.

A financial contribution is not required to join the Tiki Community, become a developer, or use Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. There are many other ways to support Tiki such as becoming active on the support forums, contributing to code development, or writing documentation.

For full details on the new Tiki donation program, see http://tiki.org/Donation.

Support Tiki (and your favorite Free/Open Source projects) on Ohloh.net

Author: Rick - Published
Ohloh is free, public directory of open source projects. More than a simple listing, however, Ohloh is community that provides extensive analytic and historical data about free and open source (FOSS) projects. You can think of it as "Crowd-sourcing intelligence about thousands of FOSS projects."

Ohloh has an extensive tagging system that you can use to search for specific projects. For example, Smarty (the template engine used in Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware) is highly popular and used by many applications. Simply visit http://www.ohloh.net/tags/smarty to find other projects that use Smarty. You can even use the Related Tags feature to find projects that share similar technologies or topics. If you find incorrect or missing information, you can easily update the information (just like Wikipedia) by logging in.
