The Jivespace Developer Community at is launching at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) on Wednesday, and we wanted to give everyone a quick preview here on Jive Talks first. We also used our own Clearspace X product to build the collaborative elements of the community (discussions, wiki docs, blogs, etc.)


The Jivespace Developer Community is a place where developers can collaborate with Jive employees and their peers to write and share plugins, themes, macros, and other extensions to Clearspace, Clearspace X and Jive Forums.  Collaborative features of Jivespace include discussion forums, wiki documents, sharing of plugins, plugin wish lists, and blogs. Additional developer documentation, tutorials, and video podcasts will also be available in Jivespace.


We are also announcing an open source plugin contest that recognizes developers who create original and innovative open source plugins for Clearspace. First place in the contest will be awarded $5,000 cash, with second place receiving $2,500 and third place receiving $1,500. The plugins developed for this contest will benefit all Clearspace users as they will be available free of charge and will extend the already feature-rich solution.


Don't forget that we  also give away free copies of Clearspace for open source projects and developer user groups!


Come visit us at our OSCON booth.  If you sign up for Jivespace, we'll give you a cool new Jivespace t-shirt.


We would also love to see you at Beerforge, a great after party sponsored by Jive Software, POSSE, OSL, OpenSourcery, and OTBC.
