Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-01-15 11:43:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> good morning

2019-01-15 11:43:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> are you following the new release preparation for community?

2019-01-15 11:43:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> https://github.com/Alfresco/acs-community-deployment/pull/44/commits/129f7ec1df7d6a9de73582f5d260415ac13b373d#diff-c583a9fe80217b10e820c9ac1669eed5R3

2019-01-15 11:43:51 GMT <alfbot> Title:REPO-4126 Prepare for next release by Epurashu · Pull Request #44 · Alfresco/acs-community-deployment · GitHub (at github.com)

2019-01-15 11:44:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> an I not well informed, or are they changing the version schema, again?

2019-01-15 11:44:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> 6.1.2-ga ?

2019-01-15 11:44:51 GMT <angelborroy> I think they are chaning (again) the general criteria

2019-01-15 11:44:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> come one

2019-01-15 11:44:59 GMT <angelborroy> Now they are delivering the “whole” thing

2019-01-15 11:45:00 GMT <angelborroy> https://github.com/Alfresco/acs-community-deployment/tree/2.2.0

2019-01-15 11:45:01 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - Alfresco/acs-community-deployment at 2.2.0 (at github.com)

2019-01-15 11:45:22 GMT <angelborroy> So there will be a 2.2.0 release including Repo 6.1 and so on

2019-01-15 11:45:32 GMT <angelborroy> But the release will be marked by this tag

2019-01-15 11:45:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> was that communicated somewhere?

2019-01-15 11:45:43 GMT <angelborroy> heheh

2019-01-15 11:45:51 GMT <angelborroy> are you kidding me?

2019-01-15 11:45:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I wish 😄

2019-01-15 11:46:01 GMT <angelborroy> No one knows what’s inside this new 6.1

2019-01-15 11:46:06 GMT <angelborroy> now it’s a black box

2019-01-15 11:46:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> man, what a mess

2019-01-15 11:46:15 GMT <angelborroy> So we have to imagine what’s inside

2019-01-15 11:46:39 GMT <angelborroy> Yes, I was speaking about this mess with some Alfresco employees last week

2019-01-15 11:46:53 GMT <angelborroy> Things like that are leading to the current situation

2019-01-15 11:47:02 GMT <angelborroy> Community is decreasing time by time...

2019-01-15 11:47:14 GMT <angelborroy> … but also Partners are starting to move in other directions

2019-01-15 11:47:18 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> the more I follow the release notes for nuxeo, nextcloud, flowable, etc, the more I think alfresco is completely lost

2019-01-15 11:47:21 GMT <angelborroy> As they are not able to manage this product

2019-01-15 11:48:20 GMT <angelborroy> In fact, I’m starting to receive many requests in Spain from Enterprise clients that don’t find a partner able to deliver all this new thing

2019-01-15 11:48:36 GMT <angelborroy> Probably this must be a topic in next DevCon

2019-01-15 18:56:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Savant> Hello Alfresco friends! I am a developer who is new to Alfresco and I have questions

2019-01-15 19:00:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Savant> I am in no rush, but is there anyone here that con offer some dev help? Or is this the wrong place for that?

2019-01-15 19:19:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> @Savant this is the place to get help, but you have to do you homework first

2019-01-15 19:19:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> have you tried something? do you have any specific doubt

2019-01-15 19:19:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Savant> i'd have it no other way! Mostly I just want one of you to shove me in the right direction, that's all

2019-01-15 19:19:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> what we can do for you if you are just starting is to provide some tutorial links to you

2019-01-15 19:19:57 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> ok, in that case, https://ecmarchitect.com/alfresco-developer-series

2019-01-15 19:19:58 GMT <alfbot> Title:About the Alfresco Developer Tutorial Series | ECM Architect (at ecmarchitect.com)

2019-01-15 19:20:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> start reading these tutorials

2019-01-15 19:20:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> there is no other way we can help you besides that

2019-01-15 19:21:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Savant> lovely. My use case is pretty specific and wonky; I've been asked to develop a plugin that lets me push changes from an Alfresco workflow into a Moodle course, and vice versa. Synchronization tool basically. Is there anything off the shelf that does that, or is it more down to building it from scratch?

2019-01-15 19:21:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Savant> great, these tutorials look like a good place to start. Thank you.

2019-01-15 19:21:54 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> yes, exactly... read them in the presented order and you will be fine

2019-01-15 19:22:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> and about your specific requirement, I don't know about any ready to use addon

2019-01-15 19:22:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> but you can try the community.alfresco.com, and post your queston there too

2019-01-15 19:22:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> even better, search before asking

2019-01-15 19:23:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Savant> i was looking yesterday and I think I'll be able to use the REST API to manage a changelog on some nodes. I've got the community forums open as well, just decided I would peek in here first

2019-01-15 19:24:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I don't know where you are located now, but these rooms are way more active in the european business hours

2019-01-15 19:24:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> I am in Brazil, so for me, it is still busines hour

2019-01-15 19:24:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Savant> I'm in Canada. That's great advice, I'll peek in again during european business hours.

2019-01-15 21:42:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> @Savant - You'll also want to use our community as a reference. https://community.alfresco.com/community/ecm

2019-01-15 21:43:03 GMT <alfbot> Title:Alfresco Content Services (ECM) | Alfresco Community (at community.alfresco.com)

2019-01-15 21:43:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <kgastaldo> Tons of Q&A there, but of course that means lots of Q&A to dig through. Good amount of blogs and docs as well. But everyone definitely agrees that Jeff's tutorials are a great place to start.

2019-01-15 21:55:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Savant> great, thank you. and yeah, these tutorials are excellent
