Date: May 5, 2008
Time: 08:30 - 09:30
Track: Opening Keynote
Speaker: Alexander Kandzior (Alkacon Software GmbH)

Abstract

OpenCms can look back to a 10 year successful history. But where will OpenCms be in 10 years from now?

In this conference opening keynote, Alexander will lay out the Alkacon roadmap for the OpenCms future. He will first provide some anecdotes about the history of OpenCms - why he started working on it, why the move to open source, and the development since then.

After this, he will examine the present state of OpenCms today, and then expand on what is planned for the future.

The roadmap for OpenCms version 8 will be addressed. Alexander will present his vision of the features that should be included in the next major release, and also present a possible timeline for the development.

Another area that will be touched is the current level of cooperation within the OpenCms community. One important aspect will be how to increase cooperation among the OpenCms Solution Providers.

Last but not least, Alexander will show some of the great new developments Alkacon has in store that will be available soon, either as OpenCms core feature or as a free add on module.
