Less than 10 mins to change the design of the login module

2024--JCM-March-Login-Module

"Joomla is complicated", "Joomla is for tech guys", "Joomla isn't user friendly". These are just a few of the most common (unfair) critics - or rather: assumptions - I've read about this awesome CMS.

In fact, Joomla is exactly like any other CMS or topic: cooking, astrophysic, woodcraft, scuba diving, etc. It's complicated if you don't take time to learn and to train about a minimum.

You can't fool me when it comes to SPF, DKIM, and DMARC!

March-DKIM

Every day, we send and receive emails, and often, these contain important information that we want delivered securely and for the intended recipient's eyes only. When important things end up in the spam folder, it is a pain… but this is an inconvenience that you can address with a degree of success.Since we are bombarded with fake emails, spam and spoofs trying to trick and do us harm, fighting spam is necessary. If you send emails, there’s a number of tools you can (or should) use to not be classified as spam and show you’re legit: SPF, DKIM and DMARC.

Don’t You Forget About Me - How CRON changed my working week

2024--JCM-March-CRO_20240316-170839_1

As a young IT manager, sometime at the end of the last century, I came across a term that interested me a lot. It was “set it, and forget it”. Sounds a bit haphazard, doesn’t it? Apparently it was less to do with software than rotisserie chicken cooking. You'll find it on Google. Why would I want to forget something important? Well, semantics aside, the principle meant that I could go off and do other things rather than waiting to make sure my backups had run.

Pizza has gone - Bugs and Fun remain

March-Patches

The Pizza bugs and Fun event in February 2024 is over, Pizza is eaten and most likely digested, but Bugs and Fun persist. You might have caught the bug testing and enjoy the feeling of marking a test as successful. When one of your tests is crucial for the merging of a PR or prevents a catastrophe - how cool is that? 
However, as a non-developer, you might not know how to continue the PR testing on your own, so here are some hints.

Pizza Bugs And Fun 2024 Kenya

March-PB_20240316-080229_1

There is no better feeling than how it feels when a plan comes together after all the hard work, the passion, the research, the teambuilding and the energy. Then all culminate to the targeted objective, without even a single variation of the expected results! Hurray! That would definitely deserve a cheer! It's the exact feeling I get when I remember the first day I joined the Joomla Community as a volunteer through application.
