As part of the 2013-14 Jive Developer Program, Jive is growing our Developer eco-system to spread the word about building solutions and integrating with Jive.  Part of that growth is to recognize and distinguish developers for skills they possess on the Jive Platform.  We've talked about the Jive Platform and Tiles / Templates / Streams badges, and now its time to talk about the Jive Apps badge!

 

What is the Jive Apps Developer Skill Badge

Building integrations between systems is all fun and dandy; however, most integrations go unnoticed without a killer user experience.  With the Jive Apps Framework, Jive empowers developers to build immersive experiences that embed themselves contextually into the application in ways that no other vendor can do.  At its core, this badge represents a person's understanding of maximize the multitude of UI extension points to build a well rounded app experience on the Jive Platform.

 

Earning more skill badges and being active in the Jive Developer Community are ways you can level-up your reputation in the Jive Developers community and win prizes in the Announcing the 2013-14 Jive Developer Program

 

How to earn the Jive Apps Developer Skill Badge

To earn this badge, you can do one of two tasks:

  • Write a blog post in the Jive Developers community that talks about an app integration you are considering building.  In this blog post, be sure to mention:
    • What role(s) does Jive play in the integration? (required)
    • What role(s) does (REMOTE SYSTEM) play in the integration? (required)
    • What app features / UI extensions do you plan on using, and what will they do at a high-level? (i.e. !apps, Canvas, App Actions, Profile Views etc...) (required)
      • What is the ideal user experience / interaction with your app while collaborating in Jive? (if, applicable)
    • Share any screenshots/mockups that help support what you want to build (optional)
  • Alternatively, if you are not the blogging sort, work with Mark Weitzel or Ryan Rutan offline to privately discuss your integration story.

 

Finding Community Members Who Can Help

With each of these blog posts introducing various skills, we will highlight some community members that have already earned this badge and would be great people to reach out to help you in the community should you have any questions! They are all just an @mention away!  But as always, Ryan Rutan and Mark Weitzel are always here to help!
