Successful Pastanaga Sprint 2017 in Bonn
Pastanaga is a new user experience framework for Plone designed by Albert Casado. Albert presented his vision during his talk at the Plone Conference 2016 in Boston. Eric Steele, the Plone release manager gave us the opportunity to present Pastanaga during his keynote at the same conference. Albert gave another presentation on the progress made and the more developed vision for Pastanaga at the Plone Conference 2017 in Barcelona.
To bring Pastanaga to life, five Plone developers gathered in Bonn, at the office of the kitconcept GmbH, for a small and focused sprint (see the announcement and the event) from November 15-17, 2017, to work on the implementation on top of plone-react, a ReactJS-based Plone frontend written by Rob Gietema.
The three-day sprint was a major success. The sprinters were able to implement a "Minimal Viable Product" of Pastanaga with React on top of the new Plone RESTful API. See the full sprint report for details.
