Last week at Enonic - 2017, week 38

Last Week

Last week, Norway Post launched their website (in Swedish) on XP.

We released the second beta of 6.12. Please take it for a spin and report any bugs.

Planning for 6.13 and 6.14 is progressing, read our planning notes from last week’s PAB meeting (Product Advisory Board).

Internally, our developers switched build server from Teamcity to Concourse. Concourse is a simple and highly scalable build system, based on Docker containers. This fits right in with the new infrastructure we are building for both customers and internal support, so we wanted to give it a try. The final verdict is not in yet, but it looks good.

This week, on Wednesday, we’ll pull off yet another developer meetup in our offices with some very interesting talks. Learn more about Enonic XP, Posten’s new lightning fast multi-repo search, and how to build a form-builder app. Hurry to RSVP!

Enonic is hiring! We need to grow our team in Oslo with a Partner Sales Manager, now also with an “Partneransvarlig” ad in Norwegian.

And don’t miss the newly opened community driven Slack channel for developers and editors to connect directly with us, and each other. Come and chat with us!
