SDL Tridion Community week in review - October 23, 2011

This week we saw the community clearly getting together further in the PowerTools project.

It is quite amazing to see its evolution on my toolbar:

Most tools are under construction, and some are much more complex than others, but there is a clear (r)evolution happening here and it is great to watch! More to come this week, I'm sure.

There are now 29 registered members in the PowerTools group in GoogleCode and the number keeps increasing. Special mention for Alvin Reyes, who has been relentlessly editing the content available and making sure we can still navigate under the deluge of information being created.

This week also saw the appearance of one more blogger in the Tridion Community, Asier Fernandez. Thanks Asier for your contributions (5 posts in 2 days!) and keep ?em coming!
