Univention GmbH, a leading European provider of Open Source products for the cost-effective operation and efficient administration of IT infrastructures, has released a new update for Univention Corporate Server (UCS).

What app developers tell us: “Show me how to start!”

Univention App-CenterSince May 2014, four new apps (Kaspersky Mail Server Security, Mandriva Pulse, Dokuwiki and WordPress) have been released and 12 apps have received updates from their vendors. I’m delighted about those numbers. But it definitely was some work on either side: phone calls, e-mails, technical discussions in the Univention forum and feedback during the approval process.

Something had to be done to optimize the whole process and reduce the communication efforts. But what measures would be suitable and would they really help? For this reason, I contacted some of the app developers directly, some with App Center experience and those who have just made their first app available. Where did they have difficulties during the whole app creation process and what would help them? At this point, I’d like to thank the app developers for their open feedback.
