TheNEXUS: A Community Project
TheNEXUS: A Community Project is the central resource for the Nexus ecosystem. You’ll find support, tools, downloads, videos, books… everything you need in order to use Nexus OSS, Nexus Professional and CLM.
Join us by filling out the form on the right and get immediate access to the Member Only area.
When you join TheNEXUS Community, you have immediate access to extensive video galleries, including free on-demand training with Manfred Moser (15 modules), Nexus Live: Stories from the Trenches, The Nexus 2 Minute Challenge (16 modules), and Tips and Tricks with Brian Fox.
Free Training: Get Started with the Nexus Staging Suite
In our first series of free training modules, “Empowering Releases with the Nexus Staging Suite“, you will learn everything there is to know about releasing your project to your Nexus repository manager.Here’s a short example of what is available for you in the Nexus Staging Suite video series. Join the community to have 24/7 access to the complete series.
Future Training Modules
Our next series of free training modules is called “Integrating Nexus and CLM into the Developer Tool Stack”. Community members will have access to modules as soon as they become available. The first module will be available in October 2014.
Nexus Live: Stories from the Trenches
Nexus Live is a monthly live broadcast held in Google Hangouts. We record each one and have collected them into an easy to access gallery. In this broadcast from July, we talk with the Atlassian development team, creators of HipChat, Jira, Confluence and Bit Bucket.
The Nexus 2 Minute Challenge
One of the most interesting assets in the Members Only video galleries is the “Nexus 2 Minute Challenge” series. This is a set of modules where we challenged Manfred Moser to show us what can be done with Nexus in two minutes or less. In this sample challenge, we asked Manfred if he could discover all the licensing issues in a repository in less than two minutes. Join the community to have 24/7 access to the complete series.
The video galleries are just the start. Here’s what else you get as a community member:
Hard Copy Books!
The first book in the series, “Repository Management with Nexus”, will be available in October. We will be pricing these at our cost. You will be able to get them directly from Amazon.
Speakers and Swag for Your User Groups
We can help you find a speaker or presenter for your local user group and send along swag such as books, t-shirts, free downloads anything you need to help promote your local event.
TheNEXUS Week in Review
All members will receive the “TheNEXUS Week in Review“, a digest of additions to the community, including articles, videos, downloads… anything we’ve done in the prior week.
So What’s the Catch?
As community builders, we see this effort as our contribution and “thank you” to the people who are using Nexus. All we ask from you is two things: Fill out the short form in the top right corner and become a member, and then let us know what else we can do to make Nexus OSS, Nexus Pro and CLM the best tool for your needs.
Questions? Send me a message, Community@Sonatype.com, and I’ll personally get back to you. Thank you in advance for your support in this project. I look forward to seeing you at the next event in your area.
