haxTuple and WebRTC: extensions from our international community

Monday, July 28, 2014

Set 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 "Extending an xTuple Business Object."

What's your passion? If you want to hack on top of our framework, August is the month to start, and we want to help you make it happen. Join us for the webinar (link above) for all the live announcement and rules review, followed by question and answer (Q&A).
