Alfresco TTL #96 – Introduction to Alfresco Development

Alfresco Tech Talk Live #96, hosted by Ole Hejlskov and presented by Richard Esplin, provided a visual map in order to classify different approaches to Alfresco Development.

I’m including below my own representation of Richard presented topics.


Have you noted that colors in key categories?

In addition to original classification, I’ve added two more approaches for developing Alfresco:

  • Contributions
    • Experimented Community developers are collaborating with Alfresco to improve the platform
    • GitHub, Issues or Support (only for EE) are day a day tools to communicate with Alfresco
    • Hack-a-thon are events produced once or twice in a year to work side by side with Alfresco engineers and experimented Community Developers on experimental features
  • Alfresco
    • Engineers inside Alfresco Inc are evolving the platform and developing some new modules only available for EE


*Repo & Share actions (noted by Bindu Wavell)

It’s not an easy task to classify and to identify every developing possibility in Alfresco, but the pathway to become an Alfresco jūdan (十段) is marked.

Every belt color is allowed to play Alfresco and sometimes even brown belts have beaten a black one.
