Publishing Silverstripe pages via Cron

As I have written before we moved from Wordpress to Silverstripe. The Silverstripe blog module has all the functionally needed to be used on a daily basis. However I was missing one particular feature of Wordpress: I want to be able to automatically publish blog posts via Cron. After some research it turned out that Silverstripe supports so-called BuildTasks which can be called from command line or via an url call. After some more research I came up with the following task that will run on a daily basis and publish all blog posts that have been scheduled for the current day:

WeCamp 2014

A couple of weeks ago my good friend Stefan Koopmanschap asked me if I want to be part of an event named WeCamp. Having no clue what to expect I said yes. Today Stefan announced WeCamp publicly and I am really happy that I said yes. In short WeCamp means 5 days on a small island somewhere in the Netherlands (I think) hacking on a project with 4 other fellow developers guided by one coach (might be me) trying to improve your skills (technical skills + soft skills). The event will take place 25th of August till 29th of August. Since this sounds like serious fun you should sign up now, a few early bird tickets are still available ;)
