Kudos to the @dev_team for their wonderful works and immense effort to Deliver a complete rewrite of a robust and wonderful Product for Tech enthusiast, Home Lab fanatics, Businesses and corporates alike.
The Time and Effort you have put in to deliver on the project within and possible even before the promised timelines is great.
ns8 is at a moment where, while alot of testing is being done to get the core product feature ready, we need to take note of the fact that nethserver has a wonderful and supporting community, both of testers, visionaries and Developers who have worked hard to build and implement modules over the years for all the previous versions of Nethserver.
We need to carry forward on this, and since NS8 unlike the previous versions before it has so many things handled differently.
NethServer 8 Beta 2 Released - Announcements / Release Notes - NethServer Community
With the current BETA2 I believe is the best time to hold a Developer session, for existing, new and Potential Developer contributors for the platform. A pure geek out discussion on:
- HOW TO Modules in ns8 work
- HOW TO to install Standard Software, PHP, Dependancy based like Java etc…
- HOW TO install Container Based Apps, existing docker etc…
- HOW TO build Modules (I know there is a Guide) but sometime a video does it better
- HOw to Submit / Push created modules to the NEth repo etc…
After all these, we can have a Q/A session on things the users/Dev might want to know.
Other advanced users can present their learning etc. tag @mrmarkuz @danb35 @Andy_Wismer @pike @capote @stephdl @michelandre @fausp and others not mentioned.
This video can be recorded, and Bits of the videos can be cropped to be uploaded to say youtube etc, for future refences.
I am sure this will Help alot on getting more community based Modules built onto NS8 byt the time we get to RC as well as to a Release, we might already have a huge chunk of community Modules ready to go, or be adopted by the Dev team.
I am sure some people might be happy to build a module and complete it, but may not be able to maintain it, so it could be adopted by the dev team and an official Module.
What are your thoughts on this?
