How do you pronounce "xTuple" anyway?

How do you pronounce xTuple?One of the very fortunate parts of my job as head of sales is that I get to travel all over visiting with the xTuple community and prospective xTuplers. I am just back from a whirlwind road trip, on the heels of several road tips. I was up and down the East Coast from Norfolk, VA to Toronto, ONT to Atlanta, GA. As you might imagine, I have enjoyed a healthy variety of accents. Either up in the great North or in the warm and sunny South, I look forward to great anticipation how the people I work with, and the people I meet, pronounce "xTuple." Read more »

xTuplecon14 and haxTuple part of Positive results from Outreach Program for Women

Juliana Louback and Daniel Pocock JSCommunicator chat box

Juliana Louback who applied to Debian during the second round of the GNOME Outreach Program for Women (OPW) in 2013, was selected for one of Debian's Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2014 slots working on the Debian WebRTC portal. The portal is built using JSCommunicator, a generic HTML5 softphone designed to be integrated in other web sites, portal frameworks and CMS systems.

Juliana has been particularly enthusiastic with her work and after completing the core requirements of her project, I suggested she explore just what is involved in embedding JSCommunicator into another open source application. By co-incidence, the xTuple development team had decided to dedicate the month of August to open source engagement, running a program called haxTuple. Juliana had originally applied to OPW with an interest in financial software and so this appeared to be a great opportunity for her to broaden her experience and engagement with the open source community.

Despite having no prior experience with ERP/CRM software, Juliana set about developing a plugin/extension for the new xTuple web frontend. She has published the extension in Github and  Read more »

xTupleCon 2014—Why Open Source ERP?

xTupleCon 2014Guest blog post by Ted Rohm, a senior research analyst at Technology Evaluation Center (TEC) focusing on ERP manufacturing solutions. He has over 20 years of experience in large-scale selection, design, development, and implementation projects.

xTuple, an award winning open source ERP vendor, recently held its user conference—xTupleCon 2014—in its home town of Norfolk, VA. xTuple’s mission is stated simply: “To help companies of all sizes successfully implement powerful and easy-to-use open source ERP software, to grow their business profitably.” The conference brought together a global community of open source technologists and ERP users to learn, collaborate, and innovate.

There were a number of topics discussed and company updates shared at the meeting, including a VIP keynote from Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. But before going into the xTuple conference highlights, I want to mention the conference session given by Josh Fischer, manager of xTuple’s Web Services Group, which really spoke to the heart of what xTuple (and the open source software community) is all about. Read more »

Open Source ERP xTuple: Growing with Help from its Friends

Guest blog post by Cindy Jutras, president of Mint Jutras, a widely recognized expert in analyzing the impact of enterprise applications on business performance.

Recently I had the opportunity to present one of the keynotes at xTupleCon 2014, xTuple’s second annual user conference. After last year’s inaugural event I posted a recap, referring to xTuple itself, an open source ERP solution provider, as A Small Company with a Big Reach. If you are (still) not familiar with xTuple, and/or are (still) not aware of the premise behind open source, you might want to  Read more »
