A Movable Type Hackathon in Europe?

By Maarten Schenk and posted in Events.

In the past there have been get-togethers for Movable Type enthusiasts in New York, San Francisco, Tokyo… but none in Europe yet!  There has recently been some discussion about this on various mailing lists and several people indicated they would be interested in coming to or helping out at such an event.In the hopes of making it easier to make this a reality, I have set up a wiki page on the Movable Type wiki where all European Movable Type enthusiasts can indicate their interest and/or offer to help.  Suggestions for topics and activities are welcome too (and of course non-European Movable Type users as well)….

Movable Type at OSCON 2008

By Byrne Reese and posted in Events.

Each year Six Apart sends a cadre of engineers to one of our favorite conferences: OSCON, O’Reilly’s Open Source Conference in Portland. We go because we love open source and because a large percentage of the people at the conference use and rely upon our open source technology to power their web sites and applications. This year is special, however. This is the year Movable Type will make its debut at the conference as an open source product. But we are not just there to celebrate this great Movable Type milestone, we are also there to celebrate the release of TypePad AntiSpam, a fully open source comment spam blocking service. TypePad AntiSpam sets itself apart because not only are its WordPress and Movable Type plugins open source, but the service is open source as well. Many of us will be on hand throughout the week to hang out and answer questions. Not only are we there to help you with any of our products, but we are happy to help you with any questions you have about open source in general, about how to best contribute to open source, and how to get your own projects started. We also there…

Join us for the first-ever “MT Day,” with free beer to follow

By Byrne Reese and posted in Events.

Update: The day long event has been postponed in order to find a time more convenient for all of those who have expressed interest in coming, but cannot on the designated day. We will still be holding the Meetup at Jade and hope to see you there! This month is a big month for Movable Type as we work on wrapping up development of Movable Type 4.15, a version of Movable Type that has more contributions from the community than any other release in Movable Type’s history - ranging from bug fixes galore, to larger feature sets and contributions like comment threading. The growing community of Movable Type contributors has made us realize how important it is that we organize more formally as a community to share product ideas, our knowledge about the product, and to shape the future of this product we all love. Therefore we are happy to announce “MTDay,” a day long event taking place on May 30, 2008 at the San Francisco Public Library. We are planning presentations about the current state of Movable Type, plus sessions and tutorials on plugin and theme development. We will also be discussing how we can better organize ourselves as…
