We’ve hit the ground in Budapest in preparation for the Plone Video Sprint. People are arriving and filling up the apartments and much discussion is brewing regarding the future of Plone and video.
The sprint agenda is starting to look like it will have three core areas:
- The Future of Plone Video – looking at using Dexterity and other bleeding-edge tech to prototype plone video functionality going forward
- The development of a “Plone Video Suite” that would enable most of the “must-have” functionality based on already existing small tools such as collective.flowplayer, p4avideoembed etc. The aim is to avoid building something monolithic and re-inventing the wheel and to keep the suite small with the minimum required functionality. We want to ensure we have realistic outcomes that are reachable during the sprint. A lot of the tools are already there, they just need to be tweaked to play well together.
- Enhancing and bug fixing existing video tools such as plone4artists and Plumi.
More updates coming soon….
