Feedback on TWikiPresentation21Jan2004

Please let me know if you have ideas on what should be covered in this talk. My deadline to submit the material is 17 Nov 2003.

Probably the most intriguing area of TWiki is the enormous number of plugins, and to some extent skins - would be great to mention some specific plugins and how they are being used (e.g. XP project tracking, bug tracking, as well as 'extra function' type plugins). It might be good to mention the InternationalisationEnhancements too - would be great to flush out some developers who can help on this, as I have a good idea of what needs doing for InternationalisationUTF8 but not much time...

The most challenging part of a TWiki installation is getting it off the ground with contributions coming in - perhaps some hints on how to encourage knowledge sharing would be good?

Thanks Richard, these are good points.

I plan to use the SlideShowPlugin so that it is easy to link to related content. As part of the presentation, it would be nice to show some real time data that changes by the second. Any good idea what to show?

For example, one slide could show the access logs scrolling by in an IFRAME window. Anyone insterested to create a quick hack by next weekend?

Thanks for all the good feedback. smile

I finished the presentation and submitted it to LinuxWorld by the deadline. All proceedings will be made available on a CD.

I will post the slides on the day of the presentation. Let me know by e-mail in case you are interested in seeing the slides ahead of time.

I am back now in San Jose. Boy, New York was cold, especially waiting for a taxi in the windy morning outside of the hotel. Most of the people where heading to the Javits Convention Center, so we did ride sharing. One person from Canada said that he is using TWiki every day at work. He was so pleased to meet me that he insisted to pay for the taxi.

The speakers room was interesting, you can meet well-known figures of the open source community. The presentation went well, I asked for an Internet connection so that I could do an interactive presentation visiting and updating Wikipedia, TWiki.org and other sites. People started to ask good questions after an initial listening period.

After the presentation I got to know some exciting news, which will help the TWikiAdvocacy. I can't give details at this time, it will be announced at CeBIT in March.

I also attended a birds of a feather session on "Open Source projects and Usability" with lead developers of GNOM, Net Beans, Open Office and TWiki. The moderator recommends http://www.usability.org/ and a paper on lessons learned from Netscape's Flirtation with Open Source UI Development. It looks like we are on the right track with our process on Codev and with Arthur in the CoreTeam!

After LinuxWorld in New York I visited two offices on the East Coast. Cleaning the windshield of snow and ice was an experience I did not have for a long long time. No, I do not miss this experience smile
