This week, while the web production team works on building out a new Movable Type (dot com) web site, the product team will be devoting a lot of its time to our developers to assist them as much as we can as they begin to test their plugins on the new product. There will be a number of places you can find us and reach us this week if you have questions or issues you can't seem to find a solution for:
- IRC - the chat room #movabletype chat room on freenode is almost always populated by Movable Type engineers, support personnel, QA staff and ProNet members just waiting to help.
- ProNet Mailing List - The ProNet mailing list has always been where Six Apart's most talented professionals, engineers and designers alike, gather to share ideas and seek support from one another. There is no cost to joining the mailing list - everyone is welcome.
- Developer Mailing List - Tim Appnel has been the gracious manager of the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list and developer community for years. Ever since the debut of the MT4 Beta, this free and community run mailing list has increasingly become the first place developers come to ask their questions and seek support from one another.
- Instant Messaging - Byrne Reese, Movable Type's Product Manager and part time plugin developer, always welcomes users to contact him via IM. He is byrnereese on AIM.
