Tiki Now Listed in Windows Web App Gallery

Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware is now included in the Windows Web App Gallery and can be installed with the Microsoft Web Platform Installer. Inclusion in the gallery means that millions of Windows users now have easier access to Tiki. Tiki was downloaded over 300 times from the gallery in the first 2 days.





This achievement is the result of work by several Tiki Community members including Philippe Cloutier, Marc Laporte, and Pascal St-Jean, as well as assistance from Microsoft. Work initially began on this project during TikiFest Confoo2010 with Wade Hilmo from Microsoft.

To install Tiki from the Windows Web App Gallery, visit Microsoft Web Platform installer: http://doc.tiki.org/Microsoft+Web+Platform+installer

Tiki Community Releases First Video Interview


The Tiki Community is proud to announce the release of its first promotional video: How to get help.

In this video, recorded in March 2010, Gary Cunningham-Lee explains how new Tiki Community members can get help with their Tiki sites. Gary is a long-time Tiki contributor and a member of the Tiki Software Community Association.

Watch the complete video at: http://bit.ly/ddczzU .

A series of video clips, released under a Creative Commons license, will be made available for interested parties. Daniel Gauthier, a member of the Tiki Community and the filmmaker of these clips says, "I've created these video clips for a very specific purpose: To help developers, technology decision makers and companies like ISPs who normally know about Open Source Development projects understand the richness of the Tiki Community."

Three to five video clips will be released in the near future, each lasting three to four minutes. These "info-clips" are interviews with members of the Tiki community. In each clip, the audience learns about more about Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware, the Tiki Community and its "Wiki Way" model of software development.

Mr. Gauthier adds, "What a great way to learn about Open Source Development. Tiki Wiki is a dynamic eco-system. It grows so fast and so strong that one day, I believe it will be adopted by many more Fortune 500 companies."

The videos also showcase the Tiki integration with Kaltura (http://www.kaltura.org/), an open source, community supported online video and rich-media solution. See http://dev.tikiwiki.org/Video for details on the Tiki+Kaltura integration.
