IXAPI startup

In the last period, there was a huge API growth especially in mobile applications industry, APIs being used both in the applications’ development process and as business tools. Unfortunately, building and hosting it usually turns into a lot of work that gets in the way of getting things done. Thus, many brilliant ideas are stuck with server configurations, database administration or security issues. But, what if we could get the API ready in just a few clicks? And, believe it or not it's totally developed with Joomla!

Have You Browsed Joomla.org Lately?

One of the presentations I was most interested in during the Joomla World Conference 2012 was Everything You Always Wanted to Know About the JCM (But Were Afraid to Ask) by Alice Grevet and Dianne Henning.

Going to Production with Joomla!

Since Joomla! 2.5 we are all equipped with previously missing key functionality in the core. I am talking about ACL, one-click upgrade, multilingual support, multiple database drivers and much more. By having all these features along with a robust framework in place we are ready to build advanced wed portals and integrate Joomla with additional open-source or commercial software and data sources.

Join a JUG

What was it that attracted you to Joomla? Was it simply the fact that it's free? Was it the thousands of available extensions? Or were you thrown into the deep-end of an existing Joomla-powered site? Whatever the reason, you might be missing out on an important benefit, that for this slow-learner, took five years to discover.

If you have been using Joomla for an period of time, its easy to forget what it was like to take Joomla for its first test drive. Andrea Dace is the owner of Aesage, an eLearning startup, and this year she chose Joomla to build her company website with Joomla.

The Conference Crasher

So, let me start by saying I wasn’t a Joomla Guy. I was a web application guy that was used to using frameworks like Codeigniter and Ruby on Rails. I met the guys at Cont3nt.com who were building a really exciting service for freelance journalists. I asked them what they were writing it in and they said “Joomla.” My first reaction was, “Really?”
