  • 2. CustomWare Wiki Wednesday – May 6 th 2009 Wiki as a CMS and JSON Based Mashups
  • 3. Introduction
    • Welcome
    • A bit about myself
    • A glimpse of this presentation
      • Wiki (Atlassian Confluence)
      • CMS
      • JavaScript Object Notation
      • Mashups
  • 4. Wiki?
    • An online repository of pages which utilises a simplified markup language and encourages its users to contribute.
    • Very freeform, the structure is dictated almost solely based on the users that are using it.
    • Publically accessible implementations:
      • http://
      • http://
      • http://
  • 5. Advantages of Wikis
    • Quick to pick up (wysiwyg editors for beginners)
    • Flexible and customisable
    • Extensible (macros)
    • High level of control over the display and content (using direct wiki markup)
    • Version history and a “sense of ownership”
  • 6. Atlassian Confluence
    • Enterprise wiki
    • Fine grained permissions for restricting access and capabilities of users
    • Simple to extend (via user macros, plugin extensions, etc.)
    • Microsoft Office integration
  • 7. Content Management System
    • A means of creating, editing and managing digital media
    • Some key features include:
      • Version tracking
      • Defined user base
      • Assigning roles to users
      • Ability to publish content
  • 8. Confluence as a CMS
    • Confluence has quite a number of functionalities which make up a standard CMS
    • Using a set of labels and permissions, we can mark content to be published similarly like we would in Confluence
  • 9. Confluence as a CMS - Advantages
    • Separation of the backend (content) with the interface (website), giving the users and editors different views
    • Easy collaboration between editors
    • Ability to integrate with various other services (via plugins both bundled and open source in Confluence)
  • 10. Mashing it all up
    • Why limit yourself to one content source when you can have it all?
    • With the growing popularity of website integration and online APIs, there are plenty of free services that we can leverage from
    • By using data and functionality from various online sources, we can build content rich websites with minimal effort
  • 11. JavaScript Object Notation (JSON)
    • Lightweight form of data-exchange that is easily parsed and legible
    • Based on the JavaScript language but is language independent (can be used with Java, C#, C++, C, Python, Perl, etc.)
    • Becoming widely used in various technologies (Confluence, Flickr, Google code)
  • 12. Mashups – Integrating the Internet
  • 13. Advantages of Mashups
    • Lower hosting costs (as content is not hosted locally, capability of delegating data processing to the user through AJAX)
    • Consolidates relevant data
    • Dynamic content
    • Flexible and customisable
    • Simple and fast integration of many data sources and functionality
