developer. I'm unable to work out from Adrian's site whether he has
any connections with RedDot or whether his point of view is an
independent one but the post inspired me to give some feedback
Yesterday I attended
Autonomy Interwoven gearup at Claridges in London.
Interwoven were recently
acquired by Autonomy and as an independent Interwoven
consultant with nearly 10 years experience I was keen to learn
about the Autonomy product suite and how their integration into the
Interwoven product suite would affect my day to day work.An Introduction:The day was presented in a slick style with an even slicker
accompanying audio/visual presentations - I counted six AV
technicians seated behind a black screen at the back of the room.
The audience was a mix of technical, sales and marketing people
from Autonomy Interwoven partners and customers. The tone was very
marketing based - the whole day was really about how
Him: Do you speak French?
Him: Oh, not even a little bit?
Him: Errr, OK so you don't speak any French?
Me: That is an accurate summary of our conversation so far, so what can I.....
Him: [cutting me off] I'm looking for an Interwoven consultant, but they must speak French.
Me: Well, I think we've established that there isn't a conversation to have.
Him: So you don't speak French....
Him: Do you know anyone who speaks French?
Me: Yes, quite a few people.
Him: Great, well do you think...
[cutting him off]
Me: But not with Interwoven skills.
Him: Oh, well thankyou. Bye.
I’ve been working with Interwoven TeamSite for several years now. For those of you who aren't familiar with TeamSite it is a commercial “Enterprise” content management system (Note: the inverted commas – I don’t like the term enterprise as it is so often misused).In the last few years I’ve also started working with Umbraco. More often than not, Umbraco is my product of choice when building a content-centric website. In most cases TeamSite is overkill requiring significant hardware to host the content repository not to mention an outlay of tens/hundreds of thousands of pounds in license fees depending on the components of the Interwoven product suite that are required. I’m not saying that there is no case where TeamSite is the solution
Disclaimer: I see this as a nice little hack, and something that I’ll use for development and fast prototyping. I’m not recommending it for production use and I know and appreciate that the guys behind Umbraco would probably discourage this in terms of 'best practices'. There is nothing here you couldn't do with C#.
Anyway, having said that, I think Perl is a great and very current technology. I use it day in day out as part of my work with Interwoven TeamSite and it still powers some of the biggest sites on the web including the BBC and parts of Amazon. Web frameworks like Catalyst are excellent and I’m quite prepared to argue my corner with anyone who thinks that Perl is old ‘skool’ and dated.
For those of you who aren’t
I’ve worked with Interwoven TeamSite for some time and over the years fellow developers have frequently complained how difficult it is to develop TeamSite presentation templates. I’ve never really seen these issues and I think a lot of it is down to developer laziness.Logging, error trapping and step by step debugging are all available but some seem to prefer to complain about how tough templates are to debug rather than invest some time and work out how to make their life easier.Are you sick... TeamSite locallyIf your company has a support account with Interwoven get them to obtain you a development license and install TeamSite on your workstation. It doesn’t matter if you install a Windows, Solaris or Linux version locally – any code you write
updating and expanding upon a little.
We do web - applications and content. We are very good at
Interwoven (Autonomy) content management products and Umbraco. If
these technologies won't contain your application we'll work with
