Goooaaal Joomla!

What do the World Cup and Joomla have in common? They bring together people on every continent, focusing all their attention and energy on one objective. The 2014 ball design even reminds me of the Joomla logo. As many of us cheer our home teams, and those of our friends, let’s take a look at a new goal coming up on the Joomla Community Magazine…

Report from JoomlaDay Moscow 2014

I’m honored to have been part of the first JoomlaDay in Russia ever last Friday. I met a vibrant community with a broad and deep knowledge of Joomla. It also has a great passion to grow the community even more. It was my first trip to a JoomlaDay event since I was elected president of Open Source Matters, and also the first time I delivered a keynote session with live translation. My session was called “You, Me and the Joomla Community” where I told my volunteer story. A big thank you to Anastasia Gabidullina, who translated my session.

Time to get to WORK!

When I landed at Frankfurt airport, I was not sure what to expect. That was a first time in many levels for me: my first time in Europe, my first time in Germany (which I longed to visit for decades) and my first time at a J and Beyond.

The Developer's Balancing Act

Walking the thin line between speed and accuracy... The developer life is not an easy one. Most would think the life of a developer is relatively safe and holds very little in the way of danger. I submit this is simply not the case. The daily routine of a developer involves a complex and oftentimes difficult routine which most will never see or understand. Quite similar to a tightrope walk.

The once very popular Singleton design pattern has become an anti-pattern. From hero to outcast. Like a sportsman who was caught doping. What happened?
