Alfresco enthusiasts all over the world enjoyed socializing and learning at Alfresco meet-ups in recent months. Here is a brief look at a few of the meet-ups that happened between June and September 2012.
Veteran meet-up organizer Amy Currans from Tribloom organized the San Francisco Bay Area meet-up where Luis Sala presented a cross-platform mobile app for Alfresco using Ember.js and Alf.js. They enjoyed meeting together even though Luis didn't bring as much beer as in times past. As a veteran meet-up organizer, Amy also attended the LA meet-up hosted by the web development team at the NFL who wanted to build relationships with other local Alfresco developers.
At the Utah meet-up Ben Steckler, who is a developer from the LDS Church, filled in on short notice to present a detailed case study about how Alfresco assists with their translation processes.
On my way to present at the FISL13 conference in Porto Alegre, I joined with Raul Gonzales and Willie Gonzalez from the Alfresco Latin America team to enjoy Brazilian food and hospitality while discussing CMIS API integrations with developers in São Paulo, Brasília, and Rio de Janeiro. The participants were very patient with my strong accent during the presentations and we enjoyed getting to know the teams of our partners Orinfo, Konsultex, Via Lógica, and Montreal.
Alfresco partner Zaizi hosted the London meet-up which involved lots of conversation and early looks at new Alfresco technologies like Alfresco Cloud, Mobile Apps, and Content Apps presented by Alfresco staff members Jeff Potts, David Gildeh, and Will Abson.
Jakarta may be the most regularly meeting Alfresco community in the world, as they had their 13th meet-up.
