Hello Sitefinity Team
Last weekend I read an article about Joomla release 1.5. Probably you know this is an opensource cms build by volunteer developers.
This brought me to the idea that it would be great to have a developer network platform for Sitefinity too. I don't mean that Sitefinity should be changed to an opensource platform. But maybe there is an interest among Sitefinity developers/users to exchange custom control developments, knowledge etc.. in a developer network platform.
Although Sitefinity has a lot of functionality in itself, I still have developed a lot of new functionality (functionality that is not part of Sitefinity yet) in my Sitefinity websites like custom controls (an Image control (upload, crop, scale, mirrot etc), image gallery, rounded corner control, ) custom membership and role privider, translation etc..
Because I believe that a lof of other Sitefinity developers are doing the same, so inventing the wheel each time again and again, it would be great if these developments could be exchanged in a Sitefinity developer network platform.
This would be good for Sitefinity developers, but could be good for telerik/Sitefinity too. Usefull developments could be used as basis in future releases of Sitefinity.
Is there an interest for this idea? Or are there any plans already?
