JoomlaDay Germany 2015

Der diesjährige deutsche Joomladay fand in Hamburg statt. Joomla wurde im September diesen Jahres 10 Jahre alt und so war es auch eine grosse Geburtstagsfeier.

Ich habe mein letztes Joomla Buch vor 3 Jahren veröffentlicht (PDF zum kostenlosen Download: Joomla! 3 – In 10 einfachen Schritten) und war danach nicht sooo aktiv in der Joomla Community. Daher freute ich mich als Robert mich nach Hamburg einlud.

Es ist wirklich schön zu sehen, wie völlig unterschiedliche Menschen Joomla benutzen, beispielsweise:

der Lehrer mit der Schulhomepage

das Pärchen, das neben Ihrer Arbeit bei der Telekom ein kleines Joomla Business für Websites betreibt

der Programmierer, der richtig tief drin ist und irgendwie alles mit Joomla geregelt bekommt (inclusive Arduino Anbindung)

die Joomla Template Firma, die mal eben das Beste aus Drupal, Joomla und WordPress zu einem eigenen CMS mit Appstore zusammenfasst (PageKit)

der Typ, der 700 000 Leute per Joomla Newsletter anschreibt

die “Pressetante”, die gern Death Metal hört

professionelle Agenturen die Wert auf ein solides, verlässliches Image legen

der Hubschrauberpilot der Joomla Websites baut

viele aufgepumpte aber eher handzahme Whiskey Trinker :)

viele andere, die sich über Core Joomla, Varnish, den Joomla Spirit, Taskrunner, Design Patterns, Joomla 4 Architektur, eCommerce, Construction Kits, Business Modelle, Github, High Performance Hosting, Linux Command Line Magic und vieles andere mehr unterhalten  

… und natürlich Klaus-Dieter vom legendären Joomlaportal schlagerstadt.de (ich weiss jetzt alles über Helene Fischer, Andrea Berg und viele andere deutsche Schlagerstars, deren Namen ich mir nicht behalten konnte)  

Ich fühlte mich auf Anhieb wohl und die Menschen waren freundlich zu mir

Was ist bei Joomla (in D-A-CH) in den letzten Jahren passiert?

Ausser dem eigentlichen Produkt, das nach wie vor das tut, was es verspricht (Joomla ist ein weit verbreitetes frei verfügbares Content-Management-System zur Erstellung und Verwaltung von Webseiten), nichts wirklich Wesentliches :)

  • Joomla wird nach wie vor totgesagt (Google Trend)
  • Die Projektstruktur wird umgebaut (diesmal so richtig :) )
  • Das Release System wird wieder von  0.5 auf 1.0 umgestellt (Danke)
  • Joomla an sich entwickelt sich wie ein Bergsteiger (2 Schritte vorwärts, einen zurück)
  • durchaus mehr junge Menschen interessieren sich für Joomla (auch weiblichen Geschlechts)
  • Es gab einen Relaunch von joomla.de

Vorträge

Alle Sessions wurden gefilmt und stehen auf Youtube zur Verfügung (JoomlaDay Deutschland 2015 – Alle). Einen guten Überblick über das Thema Joomla in deutschsprachigen Ländern gab David Jardin

Fazit für mich

Ich fühl mich da wohl, auch wenn es mich manchmal an einen deutschen Kaninchenzüchterverein erinnert echt umhaut (Themen wie schlagerstadt :) ).
Der Verein jandbeyond, der mit zahlreichen Freiwilligen hinter der Organisation des Events steckt, ist vermutlich einer der coolsten und kreativsten Vereine Deutschlands mit flacher Entscheidungsstruktur, guten Events, heissem Equipment und vielen netten und fähigen Menschen (Neueste Idee: Eine Roadshow mit einem Joomlabus durch die D-A-C-H Länder :) )

So etwas flog übrigens auch über die Trabrennbahn …

  • Mir gefällt die Joomla 4 Architekturdebatte
  • Ich werde wohl mein 3 Jahre altes Joomla 3 Buch auf den neuesten Stand bringen
  • Durch den Umstieg auf das Chatsystem Glip bekomme ich wieder eine Menge mit

 

Tolles Wochenende – alles super – vielen Dank :)

China Content Management System JoomlaDay Open-Source-Software

First JoomlaDay in Shanghai, China

June 2, 2012 the first JoomlaDay in China was held in Shanghai. It was organized by Berry Yang and her Team. Berry is a team leader at Ebay. Her team works on the Datahub project which is an application based on the Joomla platform.

Joomla in China has a long tradition. Derek Joe is the head of the Chinese Translation team since Mambo days and runs joomla.cn. The Chinese Joomla forum attracts 12,000 members. Most of them are spread all over the country. As you know, China is a quite big country and many Joomla users cannot afford to spend a few days for traveling to and attending a JoomlaDay. At this first event 110 delegates registered and 80+ attended.

The event was held in the German Centre. A kind of conference and office space where Ebay has its offices too.

There was one track and in total 5 presentations.

Andrew Eddie – Building the Joomla Platform

Building the Joomla Platform

Andrew is deep inside the Joomla Platform development. He’s not working with the CMS anymore :)

Derek Joe (Zhou Zhao-Hui)

Derek talked about the idea of Open Source Software and the Joomla project in general.

TO DO – PRESENTATION SLIDES

Hagen Graf

I had a kind of a lightning talk and presented Joomla and my book project.

View more presentations from Hagen Graf

As a result I got in contact with people who started a few days ago the Mandarin translation (Joomla! 2.5 – 基础指南)

Luffy Xiao (xiaochangbo)

He presented his work at Ebay on the DataHub topic. It’s an amazing topic and I try to figure out more to write a detailed blog entry about it.

TO DO – PRESENTATION SLIDES

Achim Fischer

Achim presented a way to run a community with Joomla based on his very clean and free extensions (download)

Running an Online Community with Joomla!

Summary

It was my first stay in China and I was just blown away about the city of Shanghai.

This is the old part

Shanghai Bund

and if your turn around you see a part of Pudong (20 years ago there was nothing!)

366/151

People are quite motivated!

366/149

Open source software in China is seen as free software in the sense of free, as in free beer. There seems to be also a lack of understanding of the GPL and the ideas of an open source community. People first have to think of earning money and they have simply not the time to investigate and/or collaborate in software projects. Another reason is that the language barrier is quite high. Younger people learn English at school and they understand it very well. Speaking is not that easy. In both ways. English speakers are mostly not able to speak Mandarin and vice versa. An additional little problem is that the Shanghai dialect is very different from Mandarin.

If you want to run a website in China, you have to ask for a license. If it is an easy case it takes a month, if not it can be very complicate. I met a few people like Derek Joe who consult clients on Joomla websites, ecommerce and other services based on Joomla. Joomla is not well known in China and clients often cannot imagine what’s possible with it. It’s good to have Ebay as a strong voice talking about the platform. It is very necessary to tell people more about the CMS and available extensions! May be the translated Joomla! 2.5 Beginner’s Guide is a start.

China is blocking websites like Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter, YouTube and more (Google+ is available). Many people use proxies to connect to these sites. Luckily, I had an old URL of the Joomla promo video (Joomla Infographics), so it was possible to show the video in my presentation. People liked it!

Very common in China are Weibo, a mixture of Facebook and Twitter (300,000,000 users – this is my Weibo Account) and QQ, a Chinese instant messaging programm like ICQ with 711,000,000 users :)

For the first time in my life took a Transrapid (Shanghai Maglev Train) from the airport to the city. 430 km/h are quite fast :)

And for the first time I ate with chopsticks and managed to eat little onions :)

Events Iran JoomlaDay

The first Joomla!Day in Iran

366/100April 12th Christine and me attended the first Joomla!Day in Mashhad, Iran.

The JoomlaDay team around Saeed worked one year to make this event possible. Due to ongoing sanctions against Iran it was not possible for Open Source Matters to support the event with 500 US$ as they usually do for an official Joomla!Day. I announced the event personally in several chats, meetings and JoomlaDays (last time in New England) but people had concerns about the political situation and often fear to get involved in that. For our company cocoate which is based in France exists regulations too that make it impossible to support the event financially. At the end of the day we decided to have a look by ourselves, fly to Iran and attend the event.

First problem was to figure out how to get a visa. For getting a visa you need a confirmation of a hotel reservation with a price in. Especially in Mashhad the hotel staff speak Farsi and Arabic but very little English. Confirming a price longer than a few weeks/days is hard for them because of a rising inflation in the last months. At least we found the Bahram Hotel which is located near Iman Reza shrine and near the house where Ali Khamenei سید علی حسینی خامنهای  was born.

We had to add our names to a list of the German “Auswärtiges Amt” and they told us to be very careful, don’t take personal computers, cameras and other equipment with us and several more security advices. It is not possible to use our credit cards in Iran so we had to bring in cash for the hotel and our expenses. The money has to be changed somewhere (be careful when carrying high amounts of cash in your pocket …).

We got more and more unsure whether it was a good idea to go to Iran but the curiosity and the hope that people are nearly the same in the whole world was still bigger.

When we arrived at Mashhad Airport (2am) Hamid (JDay Organizer), Reza (International Airport Manager) and his friend Omid welcomed us, helped as to go through the visa procedures (140 Euro “entry fee” for us two Germans :( ) and brought us to our hotel. Christine had to cover herself.

The next day we bought a Tschador, which is obligatory to wear for women if you want to visit the shrine. Christine has chosen the fashionable white version. Have a look by yourself. We strolled through various bazars (the old carpet bazar too :) ) and experienced that Iranian people are incredibly friendly, curious, well educated and that most of them just want to live in peace like in every other country in the world. We tasted different delicious food over the day before and after the JoomlaDay (Shishlik, Disi, Zafferon ice cream, pistachios, …)

At the day of the JoomlaDay we were again accompanied by Reza (the guy from the airport) and his friend Omid. We were told, that it is not allowed to take photos. At the Joomla!Day we met immediately many Joomla people that took photos and soon we met journalists that interviewed us. We talked with so many people and it was so interesting. We attended most of the sessions and people tried to translate the most important parts for us.

The event started with a prayer, a video (has anyone the link?) about the Jomladay and the national anthem, followed by a recorded video speech of Ryan Ozimek and Paul Orwig (no photo … sorry Paul :) ). Christine and me presented sessions which were perfectly translated by Mohammad Musavi.

For lunch, the whole group (ca 100 people) was invited to a restaurant. We had to go by bus and by car. Everything was very well organized. In the afternoon we continued with sessions and networking and at 8 pm the first JoomlaDay in Iran ended with a group photo.

We talked to many people that use Joomla as site builders, developers, designers, web agencies and entrepreneurs. We talked also with interested newbies who wanted to know more about the possibilities of the Joomla! system. The discussions were sometimes very intense and we learned that Iran seems to be a kind of “Joomla addicted” country :) What we learned too is that open source software is not that common, because there is no copyright protection law in Iran and most of the propriety software is available for free. Open source is primarely understood as a source to earn money. The spirit of open source needs a bit more love :).

Iran is blocking websites, e.g. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, Google Maps and many other sites. E.g. in the hotel it was not possible for me to establish a SSH connection to our server. At the same time, Iran has 17 million Facebook users and in the last days I saw more and more photos of JoomlaDay Iran from our new friends. People use a software called Anti Filter (tolerated by the government) to access the blocked sites. It even seems to work on mobile phones. The speed of the internet is in general slower and it reminds me to offer a good mobile version of cocoate as soon as possible.

The next evening, until 2 o’clock in the morning, we had a long discussion with Saeed and his friend about our thoughts and feelings concerning the first Joomla!Day Iran. We discussed what was good and not so good and how to change that and we born the idea of a Joomla! Roadshow in Iran in preparation for the next Joomla!Day (This is the base of our plan, please have a look and give feedback). So, we will come back and join you for the Roadshow. At the end of this discussion Saeed expressed his wish to translate the Joomla! 2.5 Beginner’s Guide into Farsi and add a few additional chapters to that book!

For us it was the most interesting stay since years in another country and we will come back for sure! Hopefully for the Joomla! Roadshow and Joomla Day next year! We even managed to buy a wonderful carpet in the old carpet bazar.

Concerning the political situation it is hard to say something substantial after being there for 5 days in just one city.

Beside the JoomlaDay we talked to many people like the guy in the bazar who earns his money as a whole seller for chinese jewelry that he imports himself, the guy that joined us for lunch, the staff from international airport Mashhad, the volunteers in the holy shrine, the covered ladies in the exchange office, a man with a lot of scars from the Iran/Irak war who was happy to talk to us in French, the guy who was concerned about an upcoming war against Iran, the cheese dealer who taught me how to use the old calculator that his father is still using, the shop owners where we bought the tschador and other stuff, the friendly women that helps Christine to wear the tschador in a proper way and uncountable more friendly people we talked too. Each of the stories we heard would be worth to write more about.

Just remember that all these people live the same normal life as you do when you hear about the evil Iranian empire in the news!

Joomla! brought us together and that is such a strength of this project!

JoomlaDay New England

Joomla!Day New EnglandThis weekend Christine and I attended Joomla!day New England in Brattleboro, Vermont, USA. The event took place in the local Marlboro College Graduate School and was organised by Jen Kramer, Andrea Tarr and many more people (btw, they should be mentioned somewhere on the site). It started Friday evening with a template workshop held by Matt Thomas and Barb Ackemann. We arrived just on time to attend this workshop, had pizza and learned a lot about the construct template framework.

We ended up in a bar near our hotel, the Latchis, which is a famous Art Deco building in Brattleboro.

Next day the Joomla!Day started with a good breakfast and Paul Orwigs first keynote as president of Open Source Matters. He was very honest and I enjoyed the way he was presenting. Watch his slides:

Afterwards, I attended the wonderful session from Jason Mark – Mobile Strategy. I like the way Jason is thinking about using mobile devices (follow him on twitter :) ).
Then I presented my thoughts on mobile solutions for Joomla!

I had many interesting conversations with the participants afterwards and I decided to write a book on that topic (Going Mobile with Joomla!). It will be available at the end of May 2012. And hopefully Dawn Russell will create a cover. :)

Christine presented her session after lunch and I was quite impressed. I didn’t see the slides before. But have a look by yourself …

We spent a nice evening in the Marina restaurant with some of the attendees and organizers and if things go well, we’ll see a Chinese translation of the Joomla! 2.5 – Beginner’s Guide :)

Next morning Dianne Henning recorded a JoomStew PodCast while at breakfast (listen to it at http://www.joomstew.com/)

Raising money for a JoomlaDay

Happy Ramadhan, Eid Mubarak - عيد فطر مباركIn this post I ask for your help. It is about the support of a Joomla!Day.

A Joomla!Day is a local, regional or national gathering of the Joomla! community. The Joomla Project encourages a growing and vibrant Joomla! community and Joomla!Days are part of that effort. To ensure continued protection of the Joomla! name, usage of the event name “Joomla!Day” requires permission and agreement to this charter.

The annual Joomla!Day Iran, which will be held April 12th, 2012 and it is an official, registered Joomla! Day in the sense of the charter mentioned above.

When a Joomla!Day is registered, Open Source Matters (OSM), the organisation behind Joomla! supports it with 500 US$.

But in case of Iran it is not possible for OSM to support this Joomla!Day. The “official” Statement from OSM is:

Open Source Matters provides financial support to many registered JoomlaDay events. But as a US-registered organization, OSM is not able to financially contribute to JoomlaDay Iran this year due to current US and international sanctions against Iran.

The name of the project is derived from the Suahili/Arabic term Jumla which can be translated as “All Together”.

I think it is important to support the gobal Joomla! community and I decided to raise money for the event.

  • I checked the US law regarding sanctions against Iran (Executive Order 13590 of November 20, 2011, Authorizing the Imposition of Certain Sanctions with Respect to the Provision of Goods, Services, Technology, or Support for Iran’s Energy and Petrochemical Sectors) and could not find anything what is against this law if we collect 500 US$ and support the JoomlaDay Iran.
  • The European Union has also sanctions established which are aimed to boycot mayorly everything what can be helpful to produce energy of any kind and what supports technological development in that sector including financial transactions of more than 10 000€. (COUNCIL REGULATION (EU) No 961/2010)

I decided to use the ChipIn service which is related to my private PayPal account. If you want to transfer the money in a different way, please use our contact form. Together we will find a way :)

Joomla!Day 2011 in Hamburg

Am 2. und 3.9. war ich auf dem Joomla! Day in Hamburg beim Otto Versand.

Ausser mir waren waren knapp 200 andere Teilnehmer da und es gab einen Business Day und einen Community Day.

Business Day:

Ich sollte eine Session über “Drupal, WordPress und Joomla!” halten und eine über Mehrsprachigkeit. Der Vergleich ist immer so eine Sache und wurde angekündigt als “Wettbewerb”. Ich sehe die drei Systeme eher als Tools, die ich je nach Bedarf einsetzen kann.  Hier die Slides:

Was mich sehr beeindruckt hat, war die Session von David Jardin über CCK’s in Joomla!. Ansonsten habe ich leider nur die Session von Robert Deutz über Geschäftsmodelle im Open Source Umfeld gesehen.

Am Nachmittag habe ich dann ein Live Demo der Mehrsprachigkeit im Joomla! 1.7 core gegeben, was recht gut ankam.
Hier gibt es kein Video aber ich werde habe einen Screencast aufnehmen aufgenommen, denn die Konfiguration ist etwas hakelig.

Deutsche Version:

Englische Version:

Die Stimmung empfand ich als sehr gut, die Location bei Otto in Hamburg war ebenfalls perfekt. WLAN hat funktioniert und das Essen war eher zu viel als zu wenig :)

Abends war die Vereinsversammlung des Mambo e.V. der bei dieser Gelegenheit zum jandbeyond e.V. umbenannt wurde.
Nach der Versammlung trafen wir uns an einen belebten Platz (habe den Namen vergessen) zum Burger essen :) Dank der hervorragenden Ortskenntnisse von @bastamedia endete der Abend dann morgens gegen 6:00 in einer … jetzt fehlen mir die Worte … unbeschreiblichen Lokalität namens St. Pauli Eck in einer Nebenstrasse der Reeperbahn.

Community Day:

Durch die späte Heimkehr erschien ich dann gegen 11:00 zum Community Day. Dort war um 12:00 ein Vortrag über die Neuigkeiten von Joomla! 1.7 geplant. Stefan und Thomas wollten allerdings aus irgendwelchen Gründen den Vortrag ausfallen lassen. Robert und ich beschlossen dann ‘auf die Schnelle’ die Slides von Brian Teeman zu nehmen und die Neuigkeiten live in einer lokalen Joomla! Installation zu zeigen. Dafür, dass das ganze wirklich sehr spontan entstanden ist, lief es erstaunlich gut ab :)

Am Nachmittag habe ich die Mehrspachigkeits-Demo wiederholt, diesmal mit Alex Kempkens, der Fragen zum JoomFish Projekt beantworten konnte. Es wird eine JoomFish Version für Joomla! 1.7 geben, die das gesamte Core System umgehen wird. Es gibt bereits eine Beta Version und in 2 Monaten kann mit einer stabilen Version gerechnet werden.

Nach dieser Session hat mich Dirk zum Flughafen gefahren und jetzt räume ich ein wenig auf und schreibe diesen Blogeintrag.
Mir haben die zwei Tage sehr gut gefallen und ich konnte mit Dutzenden von Leuten reden.

Die deutschen Online Versionen meiner Joomla! Bücher haben jetzt auch ein paar mehr Sponsoren <- Danke :) (Hier geht’s zur Buchung: Einsteigerbuch, Entwicklerbuch).

Joomladay Italia in Rome

  • November 21th, 2009 – 9:00 amAs I have heard and seen so far, JoomlaDay Italia is one of the biggest Joomla events in the whole world together with the Dutch and the Thai Joomladays.

    Alexred and ste and their team did an incredibly good job here.

    The venue belongs to Fondazione Santa Lucia and is perfect, the entrance is free.

    The room is filling up – there is Italian rock music in the background.

    The spirit here reminds me 5 minutes to DrupalCon Washington in March 2009.

    The sessions will be streamed live on the Internet (hope that works – it worked).

    I do a session to (building a template from scratch).

    The only thing which I really miss is a working internet connection for the public (like me).

    That’s a pity because it is not possible for me to send tweets, status updates and other bits and pieces in real time.

    Another thing is, that I forgot my camera and camcorder at home (old boy … brain is definitely shrinking).

    Good opportunity to try the gallery feature in flickr (gosh … I forgot, no Internet access).

    More and more people entering the room. It is equipped with four projectors which looks very impressive.

    I am 5 minutes at the entrance together with ste and others to welcome guests.

  • 9:15 am 

    The music stops and the event seems to start.Alex and two other members of the team try to get the PC <-> Projector connection working.

    The room gets fuller and fuller – it’s crazy.

    Three people from the Nooku team pass by. Have you ever heard of Nooku? Look here

  • 9:23 am 

    Now they are four at the podium but still nothing to see on the screens …Yeah – the first slide …

    *** The team is growing *** a slide from the DOCman team

  • 9:44 am 

    IT STARTS: Alex takes his microphone  – “bon giorno at JoomlaDay”I hear many Italian words about Joomla I do not understand :-)

    Then someone from the finance and the youth ministry says a few words.

    Here is the list of all sponsors and media partners.

    Look at their websites to get an impression of Joomla in Italy (http://www.joomlahost.it/, http://www.iit.it/, http://www.gibilogic.com/, http://www.prismanet.com/, http://www.html.it/, http://www.hoepli.it/hoeplinformatica, http://www.occhiovivo.it/).

  • 10:00 amJoomla! <-> Moodle – demo site promoodle.com

    The speaker introduces moodle as a shiny, super duper system for e-learning. For me, it is a bit hard to hear, because last year we had a client with a mis-configured moodle and our job was to solve the problems. For me, it seems, that open source projects like moodle, and of course Drupal and Joomla! too often are victims of misconfiguration in bigger projects – don’t look behind the curtain and don’t ask :-)

  • 10:18 am 

    Now the interesting thing – the integration of a moodle site into Joomla – this is interesting for me, because we set up Joomla in a European project for an Italian partner (know-how-retention.eu) and often the partners use moodle in these kinds of projects.

  • 10:30 am 

    Johann Janssen and Mathias VerraesThe talk is in English and there is a translating service to Italian language (good idea). It is the official launch of DOCman 1.5, and a bit about the future of DOCman 2.0. The docman team is growing and therefore they have the possibility to release a new version of docman on December 1th (2010 2009 – sorry for the mistake and thank you for the hint :-)).  In the past docman 1.3 was more a less Johann’s testing ground for the development of Joomla 1.5. It was the first extension which used MVC in the Joomla world. They have 1,000,000 downloads a year.

    DOCman 1.5 will be

    – native Joomla 1.5

    – the upgrade will be as painless as possible (no database and behaviour changes)

    Then Johann describes the features of docman (GPL, custom fields, local or remote storage, nested categories, group acl, plugin support (f.e. a shopping cart plugin to sell documents))

    Docman 2.0 ?

    — they have 150 Feature requests (teams, versioning, amazon s3, google docs, notification, …)

    — how to handle extensibility?

    — here the nooku framework comes into the game

    At the moment, often code for new Joomla extensions is copied and pasted from docman and other extensions and changed a bit with the known problems.

    The other way is better? first a framework, then the extension …

    F.ex. NinjaBoard was rewritten on nooku framework (88% code reduction – 5.000 Lines of code 1.700 Lines code, the rest comments).

    It is impressive to see and I ask myself “why is it called nooku? why not joomla?” It seems to be that the real progress is done in nooku, not in the joomla framework

    Another example built on nooku is anahitasocialengine (http://anahitapolis.com/).

    A chat exists, which cannot be seen on the projected screens – in this chat people ask the same question I was thinking of.

    The answer is: the Joomla framework is not built on joomla, the idea behind is the integration of nooku in joomla, drupal, wordpress and silverstripe.

    It is possible to write a Joomla extension in one line of code :-)

  • 11:23 am 

    PhpMyAdmin e MySqlA good presentation about the different versions of mysql and the possibilities to manage the databases, using phpMyAdmin

  • 11:56 pm 

    A good talk about hosting from joomlahosting.it about hosting.It starts with the question “What does the taxi driver ask when you enter his car?”

  • in between 

    relaxing in the sun with two wonderful pannini. After 20 minutes I fall into a deep sleep for 2 hours. Now I need a coffee but there isn’t one

  • 2:20 pm 

    Alex and I tried for the first time to connect the mac to the projector and … after a bit of trial and error it works

  • 2:30 pm 

    Accessibility in Italy seems to be a big thing.http://www.publiaccesso.it

  • 3:00 pm 

    my talk …I tried to build a template in 25 minutes and most worked well

  • 3:30 pm Alessandro Nadalinhttp://www.odino.org/New features in Joomla 1.6 Alpha 2 – People like the new ACL very much
  • 4:10 pm 

    Someone reads something in Italian language but it must be very important – he gets a big applause

  • 4:15 pm Brian Teeman 

    hidden secrets – How to disable components

    – How to disable ?=tp1

    – robots.txt are not working in subdirectories

    – How to disable meta name generator

    security

    – admin user is always user_id = 62 (delete it and create a new one, don’t call it admin)

    – don’t user jos_

    – hide your components xml file

    cosmetics

    – individual 404 page

    and then he showed his Joomla Tattoo … (have I mentioned, that he is based near Liverpool?)

     

  • 5:00 pmVirtueMart with Marcos Mattieri – hidden secrets for me because of Italian language :-)
  • 5:30 pmA lady talks about building a community in 24 hours and look for help in the community
  • 5:45 pmAllessandro Zaffi – SEO in Joomla 1.6
  • Then there is a last question & answer session with all the speakers

Thank you Italian community and especially alexred and ste for this wonderful day (and evening)
