I know what you might be thinking.  It's been over a month since the last time we talked (see Snatch the Pebble From My Hand, Community Manager ... ) and needless to say ... we've been cooking up a bit of awesome!  With JiveWorld13 just around the corner, there are tons of exciting opportunities for developers, such as the Beer.js Open Hack, to learn the latest ways to extend and integrate with Jive technologies.  But first things first, let's talk a bit about what we've been working on!

 

What's New

Over the past month, Mark Weitzel and I have been working hard streamline and revamp our existing Jive Developers and newly launched Jive Technology Partner programs.  Our first focus has been the on-boarding process, and getting you into the sandbox environments as fast as possible!

To get started as a Jive Developer, simply register here.  You'll get access to the public sandbox where you can try out the API, Apps, and Tiles.  In addition to staying on top of all the latest news and updates, you'll also be awarded the Developer badge in the Jive Community!

If you have a product/service that you would like to integrate with Jive, then you might want to consider becoming a Jive Technology Partner.  For more information, visit Become a Partner. As part of this program, we've made it very easy to also become a Jive Referral Partner.

 

 

We'll continue to invest time and energy into making sure that our developers and partners are the most informed and empowered experts on Jive technologies around.  So stay tuned for more examples, documentation, and overall goodness from our team in the coming months.

 

What's Next

  • Producteev Developer Contest - Win 1 of 3 iPad Minis - deadline for submissions is October 18th

... and what would JiveWorld be without a little fun?


Last year, I jumped off the Stratosphere in Las Vegas (see below) ... but this year, I thought I would do something a bit more nerdy to celebrate my new role as Developer Evangelist!  Jive is always talking about changing the world, and me being the nerd I am, this is how I decided to interpret that statement!
