Hi Everyone,

There has been some interest in an informal Jojo developer's meetup in October, basically to discuss the direction we are going in and the features people want to see, and who will be developing what.

Just to clarify - this is a developer meetup - if you develop your own or client's sites with Jojo and/or contribute core code, then you are most welcome to attend.

The venue will be the GardyneHolt office in Central Auckland. The purpose of this forum post is to establish who wants to attend, and what times are going to suit everyone.

So, please post here if you would like to attend, and any date/time preference.

I'll get the ball rolling with my preferences...
  • Sometime between the 11th and 18th October, that's when I'm in Aucklland
  • Not on the evening of Tuesday 12th (Metallica concert)
  • Not on the evening of Thusday 14th (PHP meetup)

Personally I'm not too fussed whether this happens during business hours or otherwise, so let me know your preference.

I will be there. Business hours between 11-18 oct works well as long as I can get back before school finishes for my daughter

Any evening other than the 14th works for me.

We can ustream or skype video it if you want to say hello from afar.

That's a great idea, but I'm working 3pm to midnight at my "day" job next week.

Go with whatever works for everyone else... If it ends up being on a morning, the weekend or the evening of the 18th then I'll Skype in if it suits you guys (don't wanna be a burden though). Take notes, audio or something.

Edit: I'll see if I can think up any ideas for you guys to consider/discuss.

OK, I'm leaning towards having the meetup on the 13th, as this seems to fit with everyone who has responded so far. Mike / GardyneHolt - is during business hours ok or does it need to be in the evening?

Outside business hours is definitely preferable. We have other teams here who have booked our meeting room and client work to get done. The evening of the 13th would work well.

Hi All, Apologies for the late notice - I have just found out from the purveyor of Metallica tickets that the concert is Wednesday night, not Tuesday night as I was told previously.

So - are people available at 5pm on Tuesday 12th? If not, we can keep to Wednesday 13th, but I will need to leave early as the concert starts at 7.

Sorry to inconvenience everyone, etc.

Actually Tuesday is better for me.

Tuesday is no good for Tom, so we will stick with Wednesday. I'll need to leave at about 6pm, so if we could make sure we start at 5 that would be grand.

Hope you guys have fun at the meetup tonight (EDIT: he means tomorrow night)... Sorry I can't be there or even Skype in.

I came up with a few broadish ideas for bouncing round if you run out of topics (unlikely to happen :p)

  • Unified date format function (so can set the format in Options) - including functions callable from within plugins and Dwoo.
  • Plugin manifest to show plugin version etc, list dependancies (allow for specific names eg jojo_cart, and features eg lightbox). This could be expanded later for things such as updating plugins, authors, etc.
  • Add indexes to the includes/*.php files same as tdata, have Jojo update the databases with them. Mike's script is great, but why isn't this in the core?
  • Plugable rich text editors.
  • Get a bug tracker up and running again (this time I'll be able to work on bugs/fixes instead of just add them to the tracker.
  • Moving to core the logic that determines the items (articles etc) to page relationship (as per Tom's updates to the category system) so that code isn't duplicated in each plugin.


Anyway, hope you guys have a good time :)
