First day at Aegif's Roppongi office

Last week's Alfresco gathering in Milan was great! After defining the future Alfresco certifications, we wrote hundreds of questions. I mostly wrote API questions, so people who try and pass the Alfresco API Developer certification will probably get a few of my questions :-) All of the answer are in the documentation, of course. We were also trained to become Alfresco WCM trainers.

I came back from Italy yesterday, and am now working at the 28th floor of the Mori Tower in Roppongi, Tokyo. I am working in Japanese. This afternoon, I replied to support requests in the Japanese-language Alfresco forum, and updated the Alfresco Wiki after investigating on export-import in Alfresco Enterprise.

Working in Milan

This week I am working in Milan in the offices of Sourcesense. We are about twenty people from Brazil, Australia, Europe, India, the U.S. and South Africa, our goal is to brainstorm and define how Alfresco certifications will look like: Which different certifications will be proposed, what will be their content, price, modalities, difficulty, and many other things. We reached a consensus on most things, and tomorrow we will produce sample questions for each of the certifications.

In other news, I released OxygenGuide 0.3, which fixes bug #6, and AndroidBigImage 0.1.

Got hired to work on Alfresco

I got hired by Aegif (イージフ) to work on the open source ECM Alfresco! I would like to thank my former Japanese employers W3C Tokyo and Expresso for the great projects and wonderful time I had with them!

For my first week, my company sends me to Milan, Italy for an Alfresco "Train the Trainer" training.

The Guardian takes me as a reference!

In an article about the Google Chrome OS, British newspaper The Guardian cites a Wikipedia article I had created two years ago, that's funny! The extract they cite actually did not change much since I wrote it. The article is about Splashtop, an instant-on Linux distribution. I used to write it because Splashtop seemed like a very promising technology to me, even though it had not been released at the time. Splashtop now ships with Lenovo, LG and Sony products; and with most Asus motherboards.

My new open source project

I just released AndroidBigImage, an open-source library for Android.

Are you developing an Android application in which the user reads a static map, a comics page, a cheatsheet, a book page, or any other kind of big image? Such an image does not fit on most devices' screen, and that's where AndroidBigImage comes in: integrate a few Java files into your application to let your users display, zoom and scroll big images!
