The first day of the Cocoon GetTogether 2007 Hackathon has just ended and I have to say the it’s great to be in Rome. We’ve been really lucky with the beautiful weather here. It’s about 26 degrees Celsius, lots of sunshine and a perfect blue sky and it appears to stay that way for the next couple of days. The past 1,5 day have been great. Italy is such a wonderful country.
Hippo is an international company, so working overseas is one of the fun parts of our jobs. This Tuesday for instance I went to the UK together with Wouter for a meeting at a customer. I always love traveling (except if there are any delays of course).
It seems the Cocoon GetTogether 2007 program is available at the Cocoon GT website. I knew Jasha was going to submit a proposal and it seems it has been accepted. “Create your website in 5 minutes with the Cocoon Project Wizard”. I’ve seen Jasha doing his magic a couple of times and this is something really worth seeing. It gives you a head start when starting out an Apache Cocoon project. I would say: Show us what you got Jasha!
Well the Cocoon GetTogether 2007 is coming up. It’s only a bit more then two weeks from now. Have you registered? I know I just did! Be sure to register on time, because the space is limited. I think Rome will be a great place for a GT. I’ve never been to Rome myself, so I think it’s going to be a great experience and I’m definitely going to bring my camera.
The great thing of having an Open Source CMS is getting feedback and contributions from the community. Last night I had such a moment when Marco Casavecchia Morganti send me an email that he had translated Hippo CMS entirely to Italian. He wondered if we were interested in the Italian translations? Sure we are! As a matter of fact I committed the translations today into the trunk and 6.05 branch of the CMS. So the 6.05.01 release will also have an Italian translation pack.
