We spent the last two days driving from Helsinki to Poznan, Poland for the Midgard Developer Meeting. This proved to be a good field test for Maemo 2.0 as we needed to instruct people back home about some project details using Google Talk.
While the trip was a long one, it has definitely been worth it. So far we've covered the following:
- I presented the Midgard Future Admin AJAX user interface project we've been working on with Incognito
- Piotras told us about the new, cool MidgardQueryBuilder features
- I ported the net.nemein.calendar component into MidCOM 2.5 technology (while on the road, it is cool to have an inverter and local Midgard install)
- Midgard Site Wizard was also ported to MidCOM 2.5
- We made a plan for better undelete functionality and replication
- Rambo and Alessio have been looking at the Red5 media streaming server for Flash
- We discussed the MidgardCollector proposal which will eventually simplify parameter and ACL retrieval, and help with caching
We hit the old square of Poznan again on saturday night after watching the Italy-USA game with Alessio, and toured the local bars until about 4am.
We continued the meeting around 11am, have covered the following:
- Arttu held a MidCOM component development workshop, and Rambo and I explained the new MidCOM 2.5 features like DBA, ACL, watchers, cron and Datamanager 2
- I added quota support into the Midgard Site Wizard and Midgard's new About Midgard page
- Oskari added support for folder's attachments into the MidCOM image pop-up
- Joonas started to design a new login dialog for Midgard
- Juhana tried to set up the jLibrary document manager that we want to integrate with Midgard, but didn't quite get it working
- And most importantly, we acquired four boxes of Russian sparkling wine, most of it for Osku's upcoming wedding, and some for sabrage practice
Soon we start the long trip back home through Germany, Denmark and Sweden, completing the circle around the Baltic Sea.
