WeBlog Summit 2011


October 7, 2011 by Alistair Deneys

Ealier this year in April, Sitecore’s Dreamcore US event was held in Boston. One of my WeBlog colleagues, Nick Wesselman, gave a presentation at the event on the shared source WeBlog module. There was quite a lot of buzz around the module, especially from Sitecore themselves, who saw what we were doing with the module as a great example of Sitecore community.

One of the interesting things about this module and how it’s developed is the geographical disparity of the contributors. At Dreamcore US, someone made the comment about how it would be great if the 3 WeBlog contributors (me, Mark van Aalst and Nick) could get together somewhere and have a summit, to go through the current module and work out the future direction of the module.

And that’s exactly what is going to happen in just under two weeks. Sitecore is sponsoring each of us to travel to Sitecore HQ in Copenhagen and have this summit.

And it’s going to be a great event! Lars Nielsen is currently coordinating to give the WeBlog contributors access to some of the Sitecore core developers and architects at the summit. This access will allow us to really align the module with Sitecore’s future direction, and ensure we’re ready to leverage all the cool new stuff coming in Sitecore Massive (and believe me, from what I’ve seen, there is some very cool stuff coming).

I’m also hoping we can get the first official release of WeBlog out there to the greater Sitecore community.

So if you’d like to have a say in the future of WeBlog or you’d like to request a feature or change, head over to the Sitecore Developer Network and post your ideas in the EviBlog/WeBlog forum.
