On June 6 and 7, Vienna hosted the Aloha Editor BarCamp. Developers and users of this
innovative and successful rich-text inline Editor transformed the offices of Gentics
Software GmbH (http://www.gentics.com) into a hotspot of national and international
experience (UX) and “next generation content creation” exchanged a wide breadth of
knowledge and techniques in sessions and workshops and at a social event.
The presentation of an online E-book editor and applications for collaborative
developing and editing of Web content stood out as the highlights of the 2 day event.
Kathi Flecher from OERpub.org demonstrated how Aloha Editor can be adjusted and extended.
In this project, which is supported by the Shuttleworth Foundation (

construction and distribution of “open education resources” (OER).
IT Experts in the focus
The host of the event and Aloha Editor Core Developer, Petro Salema, was very happy
about the totally booked BarCamp: “We saw some really great applications that are being
built with Aloha Editor, and it has been wonderful to see HTML editing technology being
used to innovate new ways for people to do all sorts of rich-text content creation. We are
very excited about the future of Aloha Editor and developments in HTML5.”
Professional exchange on every level
Web developers and technology enthusiasts held talks and used the opportunity of the
social event, which was sponsored by Ektron (http://www.ektron.com), for networking
and more personal exchange of ideas. There was also a lot of discussion on development,
