Things we took from London

Posted by Kellanved in Development with the tags on July 25th, 2008

Londonvasion was the first ever in much more than one sense. For the first time:

  • people from all over the world and with different backgrounds assembled to talk about our baby – phpBB.
  • a large part of the phpBB group assembled in one room.
  • almost the entire development team met face to face.

So what did we take from London?
Lots of feedback from the people who use phpBB. Noth gave a heart-warming presentation about it working, and Andy Miller presented his plans around phpBB. We heard a lot about the tiny things that the community finds irritating, illogical or or just not working as they should. It was fascinating to have members from both the Joomla! and Drupal communities adding their respective viewpoints.

What will we do with it?
Well, we sat down, debated things, designed features, came up with solutions, considered scalability – in short the things that are only possible with the developers assembled in one room.

What will be result?

Well, there will be code. There will be improvements to existing features and other new features which people asked for to solve various problems they were encountering.

Thanks to all the people who gave us feedback, wishes and participated in the very fruitful discussions.

One of the things I most enjoyed seeing was the six of you (i.e. the developers) discussing things.

Videos are still being edited they will take a while 😉

Andy Miller is working on integration with phpBB and Joomla! combining his bridge with his themes provide for seamless integration between the two products.
