haxTuple and WebRTC: extensions from our international community

Juliana LoubackSet to start next week with a haxTuple kick-off webinar, our open source developer contest is already igniting the xTuple community. Although those competitors in the bug-squashing derby have to wait until August 6 to start, Juliana Louback [GitHub], a software engineer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has begun working on her entry for the Mobile Web extension portion of the competition. She's tying together our app with JSCommunicator, an open source WebRTC tool that makes it possible to place phone calls from within the xTuple application with integration both into the users' telephony service and our CRM contact listing.

One of the great parts about open source is that we can share our varied passions and make our product great by leveraging them all. You can read about her progress here Read more »

While true, we have at least seven (7) reasons why Drupal is a better fit for our clients. Now, I’m not anti-WordPress. Actually, I’ve seen some great sites built on it, and I really appreciate how easy it is for people to use.
