XWork Server Community Edition
Use this IdeaSpace to post ideas about Domino Server.
I believe these idea is great : http://goo.gl/qRbkAI
Having an XWork Server CE will make more young people to enter the Domino / Notes / XWork world.

I'm not as optimistic as you are. Domino involves a lot of settings and proprietary concepts to setup and develop upon while it's strengths are limited and I don't think it would attract many open source developers even if it was free.

If by community edition you mean providing a server for developer to test application that they develop, I think that there will be option regarding this in the future (probably Bluemix or something similar).

Agree with S. Pan. The majority of the design software is on life support and any legacy developer with a vision of themselves is trying to diversify away from it.

I write software in Domino in a couple of months that it takes a squad of developers years to mimic on another platform.
Is Domino on life support? Or is it simply that the software market of the month just doesn't understand the price they're paying for other platforms?
No, I'm under no misimpressions about the changing market for Domino. But I continue to look at the ... stuff ... that comes out of other platforms with a great deal of disdain. I know what they're doing. I know the cost of what they're doing. And I know Domino is better at what they're doing.
Yeah, get them a platform that has actually implemented XForms in a plausible way, and people will start to realize what's possible with a well-built design concept.

@4, I suspect people neither know nor care about how much money they are wasting by coding in another platform. One client manager I knew did not like Notes development, but openly admitted that it was always 10% cheaper than other programming solutions, so he used it every time.
Perhaps, some managers use the extended development time as a means to justify a larger budget and headcount, rather than providing more solutions to business lines, or enhancing further existing solutions. Just a thought.

Also, I realize that if we were to have a CE edition, it would need to preconfigured so new/young/non-admin developers can just get in and code. Foundations was the precursor here, but that is long gone, and still stings with many partners.
