Blog Post created by resplin on Apr 1, 2013

In a game-changing move aimed at increasing adoption among young, hip, Internet-native developers, Alfresco today released a CMIS client library for the popular brogramming language LOLCODE.



'Everyone who follows me on Twitter knows that I spend most of my waking moments searching for the best lolcats on teh internetz.' said Peter Monks, Alfresco's Director of Hirsute Affairs. “But when I stumbled across LOLCODE and saw the enormous adoption it’s now enjoying, I realised that we needed to ensure that Alfresco’s leading content management services were fully leveragable in lulz critical applications.”





LOLCATS who want to nom your spec.


These additions to the LOLCODE language are already garnering critical acclaim from hipsters and humans alike, with powerful new constructs including:
