Summer time…

September 4th, 2012 by
(http://blog.trifork.com/2012/09/04/summer-time/)

For those you may have missed our newsletter last week I’d like to take this opportunity to give you a quick lowdown of what we’ve been up to. The summer months have been far from quiet and I’m pretty excited to share in this month’s edition lots of news on projects, products & upcoming events.

Hippo & Orange11

hippo logoThe countdown has begun for the launch of The University of Amsterdam online platform. Built by Orange11 with the use of Hippo CMS the website developed with multi-platform functionality in mind is a masterpiece of technology all woven together. We’ll keep you posted about the tips & tricks we implemented.

If you can’t wait until then and want more information, contact Jan-Willem van Roekel.

Mobile Apps; just part of the service!

new motion appWe mentioned in our last newsletter the launch of Learn to write with Tracy. Well since then we’ve been working on apps for many customers including for example The New Motion, a company dedicated to the use of Electric Vehicles. Orange11 has developed an iPhone app that allows users to view or search load locations (in list or map form) and even check real-time availability of these.

ysis screenAnother example is the app for GeriMedica;Ysis Mobiel, a mobile addition to their existing Electronic Health Record database used largely in Geriatric care (also an Orange11 project). The mobile app supports specific work processes allows registered users to document (in line with the strict regulations) all patient related interaction through a simple 3-step logging process. A registration overview screen also shows the latest activities registered, which prevents co-workers from accidentally registering the same activity twice.

Orange11 & MongoDB

What we offer is a 60 minute slot with an Orange11 & MongoDB expert, who can educate & demonstrate MongoDB best practices & cover how it can be used in practice. It’s our sneak preview to you of the host of opportunities there are with MongoDB.

Coffee Cookies, Conversation & Customers

Last week we invited some of our customers to a brainstorm session around the new Cookie Law in the Netherlands. Together with Eric Verhelst, a lawyer specialized in the IT industry, Intellectual Property, Internet and Privacy we provided our customers with legal insight and discussed what their concerns & ideas were around solutions. If you have any questions around the new cookie law and are looking for advice, answers & solutions, contact Peter Meijer.

ElasticSearch has just got bigger

es logoCongratulations to our former CEO, Steven Schuurman who announced his new venture:ElasticSearch, the company. The company’s product “elasticsearch”, is an innovative and advanced open source distributed search engine. The combination of Steven joining forces with elasticsearch founder & originator Shay Banon and his background as co-founder of SpringSource, the company behind the popular Spring Framework, (also close to our heart at Orange11) it’s bound to be a great success. The company offers users and potential users of elasticsearch a definitive source for support, education and guidance with respect to developing, deploying and running elasticsearch in production environments. As Search remains a key focus area for Orange11, with our experience in both Solr and elasticsearch, our customers are guaranteed the best search solution available. For more info contact Bram Smeets. 

Our team is getting bigger & better

beach eventsWe’re happy to welcome Michel Vermeulen to the team this month. Michel is an experienced Project Manager and will further professionalize our agile development organization. We also have new talent starting next month, BUT there is room for more.

So if you’re a developer and wanna work on great project with a fun team (left: snapshot from our company beach event) then call Bram Smeets now.

That’s all for now folks….

Spring is here and hopefully the longer days mean we can pack them full of great things to do in work & play! This month’s issue is a quick news flash on some things we have planned & on offer for the coming days, weeks & months and hopefully you can join us at some of these events.

2 days to go…

…until our monthly (free) Tech Meeting which is on Thursday 5th April 2012, served as always with ice cold beer & pizza. On the program this month are the following sessions:

– Apache HTTP: Even if this project doesn’t need an introduction anymore; to celebrate its 17th birthday (and the recently released version 2.4), we would like to invite you to a presentation of the Apache HTTP server and some of the most used modules.

– Insight into Clojure, including syntax & data structures, a common interface to rule them all: sequences, code as data for a programmable programming language (macros) and much more.

Sign up here.

ElasticSearch at GOTO night

elastic search logoOn April 19th Orange11 & Trifork will host yet another GOTO night at Pakhuis de Zwijger. Our last event was a great success and attracted over 60 attendees and the feedback was very positive.

This time we hope for just as much interest especially seen as we are lucky to line up Shay Banon founder of ElasticSearch, who will host a full hands on session, no slides, driven by real life usage of ElasticSearch.

Our second speaker will be announced later this week. There are limited spaces so make sure you register your interest.

We mentioned last month that we have launched a special offer for onsite Solr & Lucene training. The Spring Sale offers 25% off a 2-day training offered by our own active and leading Lucene & Solr committers and contributors. The training covers firstly how the Apache Lucene engine operates and thereafter introduces Solr in detail. It also includes advance search functionalities, data indexing and last but not least performance tuning and scalability.

It’s already proved to be very popular, but remember the offer is limited to the month of April so make sure you sign up now via our website.

So if you have any time left over after all the events, our earlier blogs here have also proved a popular read, they covered:
