With Joomla’s 8th anniversary there was lots to celebrate. Quite some milestones have been achieved. But instead of taking the time to celebrate there is lots of work yet to be done in order to achieve our next milestones!

Sticking to a deadline can be a challenge in an Open Source project like Joomla! that is run entirely by volunteers. On the magazine, the first of the month is a deadline we cannot miss, and haven't in over three years. We launch on weekends, weekdays, birthdays, vacation days, even New Year's Day! But in order to keep bringing you all the Joomla news that's fit to print, we are dusting off and adding definition to our submission guide…

During the last years I got more and more involved in the organisation of two large Joomla! events that are hosted by the German Joomla! Association. Those two events, the Joomla!Day Germany and the international Joomla! conference J&Beyond are held once a year and attended by 200-250 people from all around globe, so it seems to be reasonable to call them "quite big". Since this year, I'm basically "in charge" of all things related to the technical realisation and with this post I want to give you a look behind the scenes, share some lessons that I had to learn, and tell you some best practices that developed over the past few years.

До того, как я начал работать над текущим проектом, я не думал, что мне когда либо придется использовать инструменты для автоматической сборки проектов. Ведь работаю я исключительно с интерпретируемыми языками, которым не нужна компиляция. Однако, как оказалось, они могут быть полезными и при разработке на PHP, и особенно при работе с Joomla!

Every so often I have some tweets in my timeline where I can watch people from Joomla! talking really bad about Wordpress. Or Drupal. Or another CMS. And most of the times, people do this because they see all the opensource CMS as opponents on something that they call "the CMS market". Now, take a seat, because here comes a shocking truth: neither Drupal nor Wordpress nor any other opensource CMS is an opponent for Joomla.
