Blog Post created by Ryan Rutan on Aug 18, 2014

It's that time of year again, the time for JiveWorld!  Last year, JiveWorld attendee feedback couldn’t be more clear:  more developer stuff!   More developer sessions, more chances to learn from Jive engineering and more opportunities to meet others extending and developing on the Jive platform.  This year, we are proud to announce the JiveWorld14 – Developer Conference (in a conference), and its packed with an agenda that will keep any developer wired for 3 days straight!  So check out the details below and dont forget to Register Today as a Developer for JiveWorld14!


Developer Conference Keynote


Matthew McCullough is an energetic 15 year veteran of enterprise software development, open source education, and co-founder of Ambient Ideas, LLC, a Denver consultancy. Matthew currently is VP of Training at GitHub.com, author of the McCullough and Berglund on Mastering Git - O'Reilly Media series, speaker at over 30 national and international conferences, author of three of the top 10 DZone RefCards, and President of the Denver Open Source Users Group.


His current topics of research center around project automation: build tools (Gradle), distributed version control (Git, GitHub), Continuous Integration (Jenkins, Travis) and Quality Metrics (Sonar). Matthew resides in Denver, Colorado with his beautiful wife and two young daughters, who are active in nearly every outdoor activity Colorado has to offer.


As avid fans of his work at OSCON and in the GitHub community, we are extremely excited to have Matthew speaking this year to kick-off our developer conference!



Double the Developer Sessions & Jive Engineering Access

With Jive's platform capabilities growing each year, it just makes sense for us to equally increase the exposure at our largest developer event of the year.  This year's JiveWorld14 Developer Conference consists of 15 sessions spread across 2 days that cover every facet of Jive Add-On development.  These sessions are led by Jive engineers who excel in their mastery of the following topics (respectively):

  • Core REST API
  • Tiles, Streams & Templates
  • Jive Apps
  • Analytics w/the Data Export Service
  • Mobile SDK (iOS & Android)
  • Cartridges w/Jive Anywhere
  • External Storage Framework
  • Producteev - Task Management API

By popular demand, we will also have our experts there to talk about best practices and strategies for integrating Sharepoint & Office 365 with the Jive Platform!


In addition to having sessions, the Jive Developer Hacker Lounge will be staffed by the same engineers throughout the JiveWorld14 Developer Conference.


Have a question about one of the presentations, or perhaps your own integration idea? Stop by the Hacker Lounge to get your questions answered!
