This week we share news about a survey on your favorite markup language, new releases for PlatformUI and eZ Platform and a reminder for Web Summer Camp early bird tickets. Also updates in resources, social media and events.
What is your favorite markup language?
The eZ Doc team is planning to move the eZ Platform developer documentation to GitHub and to generate static docs based on markup files. In a recent post, the Doc team asks which markup languages you are most familiar with and which ones would be the easiest for you to work with.
Fill out this simple, 3-question survey and let us know what you think. It’ll take just 2 minutes.
PlatformUI and eZ Platform releases
The second release is the eZ Platform v1.8.0-rc1 release. This release includes an experimental http cache feature which is not enabled by default. You can enable this in a dev environment for testing purposes. You can find the release on GitHub. More information on this http cache feature is available here.

If you missed the news last week, super early bird tickets are available for Web Summer Camp. The event will feature tracks for eZ Platform, PHP, front-end and UX. Visit http://2017.websummercamp.com/ and grab your ticket.
