Write a blog post about XWiki

The objective of this task is to have you discover the world of XWiki, the next generation wiki.

The blog entry should be related to any aspect you find interesting about using XWiki in collaborative creation of school courses, web site creation, knowledge base, collaborative intranet, real-time editing or anything else you can think about. Tell us a story about your user experience, respecting the following requisites:

  • at least 200 words;
  • add at least an image or a screenshot;
  • add at least a link to something related to the topic.

In completing the task, use the following guide: http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Documentation/UserGuide/

Before starting your task familiarize yourself a bit with XWiki. You can see it in action in the Playground, so you should create an account there and test it a bit. Your task might involve actions or applications that are not available on the Playground, so make sure you download the latest version of XWiki.

For questions you can always use the Forum or the IRC channel, see http://dev.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Community/Discuss

Note: Be honest, be curious and share your experience. Try to look at XWiki just like any newcomer would and not as a GCI student working on a task.

Expected outcome:

  • Link to your new blog post published on a publicly accessible location or platform (e.g. medium.com, wordpress.com, blogger.com, myxwiki.org, github.io, personal blog, personal website, etc. -- whatever you prefer, just not a social network).
