Nette Magazine #0
We are starting something new
This article is a shortened translation of a Czech e-mail magazine. Honza started with writing some news from our community and foundation. Because we want to talk to you, no matter where you are, we have also turned this e-mail magazine into a blog post. We are planning a new article delivery in every 2–3 weeks. However, a brief delay might occur depending on translation speed. If you'd like to help us with content and/or corrections, contact Honza for more information. We are open to any help.
This Twitter hashtag stands for small repeated events and casual community meetings. An English equivalent, #NetteFwBeer, will also be used. These casual meetings take place every second Wednesday in a month. If you'd like to set up your own local community event, just create an event at http://eventle.com/(or elsewhere) and promote it on a Nette forum. We want the community to grow and this is one of the ways how we can make it happen.
“Poslední sobota”, which stands for Last Saturday, is a bigger happening that is taking place on the last Saturday of every month. Unfortunately, it is the only Czech event (so far). However, we are planning to spread the event to even more locations (there is still plenty of places to visit) to gather and keep all the local Nette communities together. We’d also love to visit places beyond Czech borders to come up with some new amazing English talks. If you want to land a hand, don’t hesitate to contact us. Initially, we’d like to expand to Germany, Poland, Austria, and Slovakia, but our door is certainly open to many other countries as well. :)
Milan (Felix) released a new version of a next-generation addons portal. This is the place where you can find a lot of addons for your Nette applications. It’s still in beta, but we are working hard to make it as seamless as possible. As soon as all the addons are available and the latest minor visual improvements are finished, we will place the new portal whereas the old one is going to serve as an example Nette application on GitHub. So, if you have any ideas or bug reports, please open an issue on GitHub or just tell us on Gitter:gitter.im/componette/componette
We are planning to launch a Nette Pro merchandise e-shop. The e-shop is coming out in late February. The first offer will cover (official) t-shirts only, but some additional products may be coming soon. Any gained profits will be used to buy either new or existing equipment capable of recording our events to make them accessible to an even broader audience.
If you are using FTP as a software deployment tool, you’ll definitely appreciate a new version of the FTP-deployment tool that has been currently released by David. You can find more about the 2.3 release, including some news, on the GitHub release page at https://github.com/…ses/tag/v2.3.
ORM Dibi-based database layer, originally developed by Vojta (Tharos), will be taken over by Mirek (Castamir). He’s been using Lean Mapper for a long time and has a lot of new ideas and improvements to implement.
For the end
Next magazine edition will come shortly. This article is covering only a small portion of all the changes planned. Finally, as a sneak peek, we are working on new navigation through the nette.org portal. In the upcoming edition, there will be information about a lot of new stuff, including changes in the codebase and, of course, Nette Pro.
If you’d like to help us with further improvements, just contact Honza.
