Practical use of Microdata in Joomla! 3 and 2.5

Practical use of Microdata in Joomla! 3 and 2.5

With the latest updates in Joomla 3, many improvements have been introduced regarding Microdata (sometimes also called Rich Snippets or Structured Data).

Mon premier JoomlaDay

Mon premier JoomlaDay

Les 23 et 24 mai dernier s'est tenue la 8ème édition du JoomlaDay France à Paris. Organisée par l'AFUJ (Association Francophone des Utilisateurs de Joomla), cette manifestation est le carrefour annuel des afficionados de notre CMS préféré. Le JoomlaDay est aussi et surtout l'occasion de rencontrer des personnes que l'on ne connait parfois que par le biais d'Internet. Des belges, des algériens, des suisses, j'y ai rencontré une russe de Vladivostok (bon ok, elle habite maintenant Bruxelles) et un japonais arrivé le matin même en direct d'Osaka. Tel que je l'ai vécu, c'est un fantastique carrefour culturel et intellectuel.

Benefits of Using Pirated Joomla Extensions

Benefits of Using Pirated Joomla Extensions

“If you value a Joomla extension, you will also value and appreciate the work that goes into making that extension.” A few weeks ago in a Joomla user group, a user shared a link to a website encouraging the purchase of various Joomla extension licences, sharing them with those who had paid for this pirated 'membership'.

The Developer's Balancing Act

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.
