“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'.

Being part of J and Beyond, has given me the pleasure of seeing old friends again, but also the opportunity to see that particular companies continue to be at the forefront. It is great to see that from the strong foundation that those companies made years ago due to their sponsorship, worldwide Joomla events have been able to take place, as well as other activities that the rest of the community need.

The once very popular Singleton design pattern has become an anti-pattern. From hero to outcast. Like a sportsman who was caught doping. What happened?

Lo scorso mese si è svolto nei pressi di Francoforte, l'ormai consueto evento Joomla and Beyond 2014, una delle più importanti conferenze per la community Joomla a livello internazionale.

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.

When I landed at Frankfurt airport, I was not sure what to expect. That was a first time in many levels for me: my first time in Europe, my first time in Germany (which I longed to visit for decades) and my first time at a J and Beyond.

I’m honored to have been part of the first JoomlaDay in Russia ever last Friday. I met a vibrant community with a broad and deep knowledge of Joomla. It also has a great passion to grow the community even more. It was my first trip to a JoomlaDay event since I was elected president of Open Source Matters, and also the first time I delivered a keynote session with live translation. My session was called “You, Me and the Joomla Community” where I told my volunteer story. A big thank you to Anastasia Gabidullina, who translated my session.

Quando aterrisei em Frankfurt, não sabia bem o que esperar. Essa viagem foi a primeira vez de várias coisas: minha primeira vez na Europa, minha primeira vez na Alemanha - um país que queria visitar há anos - e minha primeira vez em um J and Beyond.

What do the World Cup and Joomla have in common? They bring together people on every continent, focusing all their attention and energy on one objective. The 2014 ball design even reminds me of the Joomla logo. As many of us cheer our home teams, and those of our friends, let’s take a look at a new goal coming up on the Joomla Community Magazine…

Last month the world embraced and celebrated Pride Day in hundreds of cities around the world… In May, during JoomlaDay Brazil, I was lucky to attend my first Pride Parade in Sao Paulo, one of the largest in the world, with more than a million people marching, dancing and celebrating the diversity and pride of who they are.

Après avoir évalué différents CCK (Content Construction Kit), il s'est avéré que SobiPro répondait à toutes mes exigences pour la construction d'un site portfolio. La seule inconnue pour moi demeurait dans le degré de difficulté quant à l'apprentissage de la technologie EXtensible Stylesheet Language (XSLT). Pour ceux qui ne la connaissent pas, XSLT est une "technologie de template" qui interprète un document XML et génère le HTML. J'ai aimé l'idée d'être en mesure de manipuler le modèle de données en même temps que la vue. Mais je n'aimais pas l'idée de devoir apprendre une nouvelle technologie.

Quel lien peut être assez fort pour réunir au même instant des personnes habitant Sydney, Seattle, Iquique, Oslo, Grand Case, Pune (Inde), Osaka ou encore Auxerre (pour ne citer qu'elles) ? Quelle étrange "folie" peut bien pousser plusieurs centaines de personnes à venir des 4 coins du monde pour se réunir pendant plusieurs jours dans un village d'Allemagne, au pied d'une forteresse pour parler de web, de code, de liens, de logiciels libres ? L'explication tient en un seul mot : Joomla! (qui signifie "tous ensemble" en swahili). En effet, la 5ème édition du J and Beyond s'est tenue le dernier week-end de mai 2014 à Königstein, non loin de Francfort. Et le plus exceptionnel pour moi, c'est que j'y étais !

Avec la dernière mise à jour de Joomla! 3, de nombreuses améliorations ont été introduites pour les Microdata (qui sont également appelées Rich Snippets ou Structured Data). Récemment, des articles du Joomla! Community Magazine ont déjà expliqué les techniques de fond sur l’implémentation et la manière de travailler pour les développeurs. Cependant, beaucoup ont encore du mal à comprendre où est-ce qu’ils peuvent voir cela et comment peuvent-ils bénéficier des avantages SEO que les Microdata donnent sur le plan pratique.

Do you know why is it important for value objects to be immutable? Maybe you're not familiar with a concept of value objects, but don't worry I'll explain everything in the simplest way. Let's gamble a bit!
