Session type Talk (45 minutes)
Long Abstract The Interactive Knowledge Stack (IKS) is an open source community that aims to bring semantic technologies to CMS platforms. This community ships products like VIE, CreatePHP, CreateJS and Stanbol.

TYPO3 Phoenix is early adaptor of the project. Within this early adaption program we implement VIE, and plans to make use of CreatePHP and Stanbol too. At the moment of writing this is still under development, but it's planned to be in TYPO3 Phoenix before october 2012.

During this session we will explain to you what the IKS Project is, and demonstrate the semantic capabilities we add to TYPO3 Phoenix.

Around the age of 14 Rens started 'developing' by analizing code snippets on ancient computers. By just accepting new challenges Rens learnt multiple languages, and worked on a wide variety of web projects. Now Rens is a FLOW3 / TYPO3 Phoenix Core member and works mostly on the javascript part.

Working at multiple agencies Rens as seen how development can be done in a structured or completely unstructered ways. This slowly moved attention from only development to continues integration, testing and code quality. Now Rens helps integrating development environments enabling / learning developers to work with clean code, and (automatically) giving the developer feedback he needs to improve his skills even more.
