Issues by Year

Nous avons vu dans le premier article consacré à la création d'un site Joomla!, les principales étapes à suivre (avec quelques conseils, histoire de gagner du temps).

Cependant, vous aimeriez lui apporter des fonctions supplémentaires, le personnaliser, le sécuriser, etc. Pour cela, vous allez avoir besoin d'utiliser des extensions qui viendront se greffer à votre installation "native". Enfin, nous verrons les différents contrôles à effectuer avant la mise en ligne de votre site.

Certains comportements rencontrés sur les forums, m'irritent au plus au point (l'âge sans doute ?) et le site forum.joomla.fr ne déroge pas à la règle. Aussi, quand je suis récemment tombé sur l'article écrit par Michael Russel pour Kunena, j'ai été ravi de trouver quelqu'un qui partageait mon sentiment et je me suis dit que ce serait dommage de ne pas en faire profiter tout le monde...

There was a time when, as a web designer, you had to choose between a Content Management System (CMS) that would provide an up-to-date design or the right functionality for your website. Certain systems where known to be better at providing shopping cart solutions, other provided attractive and responsive blogging options, and then there was Joomla!, which gave developers room to continuously add functionality through its extensive extension directory.

Looking back through history we can see those moments of inspiration and those ‘game-changing’ movements. We admire and respect the innovative leaders which blazed the trail and lead the way into the future. We admire them because we know it’s a difficult job. We admire them because at times they were scoffed and ridiculed their ideas were rejected and their sanity questioned. Yet they continued. They persevered and they saw what no one else saw. They saw the future. And they were overwhelmed with the burden to get us there.

Se tenir en équilibre à la frontière entre vitesse et précision... La vie d'un développeur n'est pas simple. La plupart pensent que la vie d'un développeur est relativement sûre et ne comporte que peu de danger. Je vous assure que ce n'est tout simplement pas le cas. Le quotidien d'un développeur implique une routine complexe et souvent difficile que la plupart ne verront ou ne comprendront jamais. Un peu comme marcher sur un fil...

The GPL gives us some wonderful freedoms, including the ability to solve our own needs when it comes to adapting and reusing software. But with such power comes responsibility. I am reminded of the phrase, "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should." And in this case, I am referring to selling software written by others as if it was your own.

What is the outlook for Joomla 3.4 and beyond? Shorter and targeted release cycles, improved stability, no more STS/LTS, solving the Bootstrap challenge, and decoupling core extensions.

On the weekend of July 26th and 27th nine developers from around the world gathered in Manchester, UK to clean up Joomla's bug tracker. The project's bug tracker had grown unkempt, with hundreds of issues that were stagnant for a long time. Some issues were there for over a year. Moreover, the JoomlaCode issue tracker wasn’t really fit for the amount of growth Joomla had experienced since 2005. It was necessary to put the number of issues under control and move to an improved bug tracker and that was the goal of the Joomla! Bug Sprint.

For me, some of the more memorable moments of the 2013 Joomla! World Conference involved WordPress leaders being present at the event openly discussing both Joomla and WordPress and each project’s unique attributes. In my time contributing to the open source community, rarely had I seen “cross-talk” like this between projects, let alone those leading projects. After that event, my interest was peaked and one of my 2014 TODO’s was to not only attend a WordCamp, but also speak at it and share how our communities can learn from one another.
