We've blogged about the outstanding students who used their Google Summer of Code stipend to spend time improving Joomla. With the official GSOC over, the students are now reporting back to the community about their successful projects. Joomla 1.6 is going to benefit enormously from their efforts!
This past week brought live webinars about several of the projects, including a VERY exciting effort by Ankit Ahuja to bring advanced front end editing to Joomla.
Watch a 5 minute clip of the longer presentation "Advanced Front End Editing for Joomla" right here!
The ease of editing modules, titles, and more from the front end is simply cool. Well done, Ankit!
Ankit and his colleagues recorded their presentations using Webex. Many of the presentations are now available on Joomla.org.
The Webex experience is, to be kind, clunky and requires proprietary downloaded software to use. (A little ironic for an open source project!) If you're up to using Webex, watch Ankit's full 13 minute presentation.
Joomlashack loves what these projects bring to the future of Joomla, and we want the world to know all about them. That's why we're spending a little time creating Flash and mp4 based clips of some of the presentations and putting them up on YouTube.
Stay tuned to our blog over the next few days for more 5 minute clips!
