The event featured an informative presentation from Jamie Neil, who discussed a number of new features and capabilities being introduced with the latest version of SilverStripe. Jamie, who is GPMD’s Technical Director, also answered questions from his audience throughout the presentation. SilverStripe users unable to attend the event could still follow the key points of the presentation by tuning into real-time tweet updates.
The feedback we received from visitors was unanimously positive, with a number of people identifying sections of the presentation that particularly excited them.
Personally, I was most interested in the improved social networking integration features, which will allow users to be more pro-active within the CMS with their preferred accounts.
Meetup events like this one are held every month, giving SilverStripe users of all levels an opportunity to develop their understanding of the open-source system.
