September's London SilverStripe Meetup
Martin Dines / September 25, 2014

We were joined by SilverStripe's CEO and co-founder Sam Minnée who gave an insightful presentation on SilverStripe's current and future goals both from a company and open source perspective.

SilverStripe are focusing heavily on improving the framework and looking to integrate with other platforms to increase versatility for its ever-growing communities needs.

Whats on the roadmap:

  • Performance (UI and core framework)
  • Better layout controls for authors (widgets, content blocks)
  • Overhaul the 'management' in Content Management
  • Less PHP for front-end developers

Beyond that:

  • Make use of modern JS frameworks (AngularJS, Ember, etc)
  • Play nicely with other frameworks (Symfony, Laravel)

More information can be found on their uservoice.

Its great to see SilverStripe gaining momentum in the UK and we are excited to see what the next instalment brings. If you are interested in finding out more check out SilverStripes shiny new site.
