Lessons learned while collaborating remotely in a global pandemic

Silvia Macovei
<p>With the global pandemic, many teams have turned to remote work on a full-time basis. Prior, the XWiki team had been working distributively, building open-source software, for over 15 years. Some of us were working remotely full time. Other colleagues opted to go to the office. The majority of the team chose to blend the two, depending on their preferences and needs. Almost a year on, what seemed a temporary change feels like a permanent arrangement.</p> <p>Being able to work entirely remotely has been, in many ways, a privilege. But collaborating during a pandemic is not business as usual. This talk reflects on the specific challenges we faced, the changes and tools we implemented to address them, and the ways we tried to support each other through this uncertain period. While there’s no one size fits all, we hope sharing our experience will prove useful for teams navigating similar challenges. We’re in this together.</p>

<p>CryptPad is a suite of private-by-design collaborative tools. It guarantees privacy to users by handling sensitive data client-side so the server only ever sees encrypted data that needs to be stored. The platform was designed to limit the risk of data leaks, but it's also extremely effective as a scaling strategy since the server's responsibilities are very limited.</p> <p>In this presentation I'll share our team's experience in designing this unorthodox platform, scaling to support 60K more ...

<p>Two years ago I showed how to use XWiki as a development platform to build collaborative content centric applications while last year I did a short demo about how to use XWiki to setup a collaborative intranet in just 20 minutes. This year I propose a demo about how to create a public website with XWiki, and use XWiki like a content management system (but a collaborative one). The appeal of XWiki for such a usage is the possibility to integrate all usages in a single tool (intranet - see last ...

<p>'No-Code/Low-Code' software by Tiki.org has blurred the lines, allowing for team member participation and engagement on digital and data initiatives on many levels. It goes well beyond many CRM, ERP, PM, etc, offerings which are good at what they do but typically narrow in focus, by giving users a wide mix of hundreds of tools in many categories - Front-end, Back-end, Databases, Admin and Mobile. Big 'Features', supporting 'Features' and countless small but handy plugins all combine, allowing ...
