Anyong-haseyo 안녕하세요 - Joget Workflow Speaks Korean and Has RTL Support too

Image
Yes! Joget Workflow speaks Korean, and quite fluently to date, and we're saying so because we've already achieved 99% completion of the language translation by community effort at translate.joget.org.

Here is the introduction to Joget Workflow in Korean language (오픈 소스 워크플로우 애플리케이션 빌더 - 도입부).

Of course, there are many other language translations being actively worked out by our ever-growing community of translators. Indonesian, Spanish and Thai are among the more popular ones.

Let's look at Hangeul 한글 in action and what Joget Workflow looks like in the Korean native alphabet.

RTL Language Support

Do you know that apart from the usual LTR languages, Joget Workflow is packed with RTL language (such as Arabic) support as well? And switching to RTL mode can be done easily in the management console, as shown below.


Switching to RTL support and system locale is just a click away
Come and join us in making Joget Workflow the world's most powerful and li…

Joget Workflow on FLOSS Weekly Interview

Image
It has been 17 months since the first public release of Joget Workflow (back in Oct 2009), started with just 19 downloads recorded in the first month. Today, with the support from worldwide adopters, we are grateful to be listed by Momentum Index as one of the top 96 open source software companies. This reflects a strong early proof of traction for Joget Workflow.

FLOSS Weekly

15 hours ago, we were on live telly, interviewed by TWiT's FLOOS Weekly. You can listen or watch the podcast here. The session was hosted by Randal Schwartz and Aaron Newcomb. Our CEO in the Valley - Michael Yap, was taking lead responding to the interview questions, and I was more of a backbencher haha.

Even though this is not the first time for us to be interviewed on Joget Workflow project, but we have been very much looking forward to this, as the FLOSS Weekly program objective and audiences fit perfectly into the model of our software -- free, libre, open source!

The interview was casted at 9.30am PDT, bu…

What's New in Joget Workflow v2?

Image
Not just sleek and cool looking Web 2.0 UI; the navigation design is also further improved in Joget Workflow v2 to enhance user experience.


New Facelift

Well-organized drop-down menu, breadcrumb navigation, form browsing by category, and process thumbnail image are some of the usability enhancements introduced in Joget Workflow v2. Open source software doesn't have to look unappealing.



Userview - Everyone Can Create an Application System

Ever wish for the processes you deploy in Joget Workflow to have a front-end web application system? A leave application system for the leave application process, a travel management system for the flight reservation process and staff recruitment system for the recruitment process.



Now, with Joget Workflow v2, we are able to configure (not develop) a front-end application, known as userview, for each process just by clicking and typing to customize the userview application front-end. So, in addition to performing a workflow task from Workflow Managemen…

Advantages of Joget Workflow

Similar to any other products, two of the questions that we are most frequently asked, are:

What are the advantages of Joget Workflow?How do you compare Joget Workflow to competitors like X, Y and Z?
I'm pretty sure there are many people Googling for such information too, so I might as well publish my thoughts here.

By the way, I'm only writing about some key advantages of Joget Workflow here, not competitor analysis :)

1. Open Source Software

Being an open source model, software is not the only deliverable of Joget Workflow. In fact, the source code is also one of the deliverables. So, comparing to closed-source products, the source codes in Joget Workflow can be seen and examined by anyone, including the software engineering experts. This encourages the software engineers contributing to Joget Workflow to produce higher quality source codes.

Thus, the open source model of Joget Workflow enables flexibilities in the following key implementation aspects:
Bug-fixing: When a bug i…

Joget Workflow rides the 1st quarter of 2010 with intensive training programs

Image
As it looks to expand itself regionally, Joget Workflow delivered a compelling training program to its community of users in Jakarta, Indonesia on March 2 and 3, 2010. Entitled Joget Workflow Basic Training, the sessions were conducted at the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry or KADIN (Kamar Dagang dan Industri Indonesia) where participants from various industries, ranging from IT Solutions Developers to Finance, attended. Key segments included identifying processes in the organization, simulating and drawing up real-life workflows based on business requirements, and managing and automating processes and, at the conclusion of the training, participants were able to design sample workflows independently.

Tech Investing Trend

Image
I'm back to the warmer part of the world from the lovely California's winter-spring transition for the incredibly huge Asian market, and Michael is also back to our bootstrapping office in Sunnyvale. We have done our very best (I believe so) at DEMO Spring 2011 to demonstrate Joget Workflow as a workflow application builder, to build a helpdesk web application integrated with voice and text services (using Joget Workflow's Twilio plugins), all amazingly within 5 minutes!



Those who came to our booth and witnessed the short demo, had mostly given us a jaw-dropping reaction.

Something That DEMO Failed to Fulfill

Overall, the DEMO conference was a great one, and the agenda between conference tracks and exhibitor's pavilion opening was nicely arranged.


Among the large pool of interesting tech startups launching at DEMO, we have also managed to create some exposures for Joget Workflow with the conference attendees via social media channels, by utilizing the #DEMOcon tweetstre…
