The STK 2.0 kickoff workshop will be comprised of a small team of mainly developers that are experienced with STK and wish to improve it. The Goal of the workshop is to gather specific feedback, decide on features for STK 2.0 and define a roadmap as well as responsibilities for the further development (i.e. who does what).
There is no obligation for the participants to work on the actual implementation, but the likelihood that a feature will be implemented will much increase if the person who wants it also provides it.
- missing features / obstacles
- separate framework and templates
- resources/performance: permanent caching, facilitate development
- imaging integration: better solution
- add-ons / plugins / modules
- roadmap: STK 2.0 / Magnolia 5.0?
- further collaboration?

- will send two STK-experienced devs
Mail from Gerbrand
Initially we thought we would use the STK to get us started and would write our own 'VPRO Templating Kit' later on. Knowing a bit more we think we can keep using STK, especially as we can help make it better. We are currently discovering how to override the template classes so we can be more flexible about areas etc (this was the main worry for a time). This seems to go well and makes the use of STK for future projects much more viable.
As discussed we are happy to join the STK2.0 meeting. I would like to send 2 developers with a lot of knowledge and I think they can participate in the discussion in a very positive way
- not sure yet, asked to confirm participation by mid May
