I found the OpenERP Improvement Ideas website. It is a very interesting site and it is a way of collaborating on setting OpenERP roadmap. The way it works? It is pretty simple. After creating your registered user, you are assigned a point amount (15 I think, I tried it last Sunday but I forgot, and I don’t want to create a new user). And you are able to vote for the different development initiatives. Plus, you are able to comment on them and discuss them with the development team and other OpenERP users. It is a very cool idea for collaborating in the development process, giving feedback and enhancing the community. Plus, it is a good idea well implemented, since the voters system is quite simple and powerful at the same time.

Cheers!

Learning OpenERP with videos

Well, I don’t have that much time but I wanted make a quick short post on a website that helped me a lot to learn OpenERP. This website is OpenERP Video, you can find it at this URL:

http://www.openerpvideos.com/

My experience with the website has been very positive and I am very happy it exists. Actually, when I was beginning with OpenERP, I watched many of its videos since they taught me how to use the system, while at the same time reading the OpenERP book.

A couple of interesting things about this website, it has video content provided by the community and Pragmatic TechSoft. So if you have a nice video on how to use OpenERP, you can upload it and promote it at this website. The other interesting thing about this website, is how large its media library is. Keep in mind that producing a video is not easy, and producing a tutorial video is quite demanding since you need to devote the time to do it plus plan for it. Then edit it. It takes a lot of time.

These videos are brand new, and you can find videos covering the new features of OpenERP 6.0, such as OpenERP 6.0 module and UI improvement videos.

My last point is, we should have more videos online. Since end-users do not read manuals and they can’t spend weeks in classrooms. So having them watch videos is a good way to ensure the OpenERP adoption among end-users.

So… Kudos to Pragmatic!!!!
