We presented our social flavored extensions on eZ Conference in London on June 16th. The presentation covered Web Engagement Management features which will modern CMS platform like eZ Publish need to be successful in the near future.
This is the second post in the series on how to create a modern web site. In previous post we covered how to set up the baseline for a web project. This post will cover the next step in a web project: setting up a site map.
Since we tagged eZ Tags extension as stable on GitHub few weeks ago, we thought this would be a good time to write something about how to install eZ Tags extension and common usages.
We at Netgen, as a web development company, are facing the same challenges on every web project we do. It is very important to know how to deal with these challenges to successfully manage a web project. We plan to publish a series of blog posts describing the steps we take when creating a modern web site.
The time has come to inform the eZ community about interesting stuff currently in development in eZ Tags extension and to give a current overview of the project.
Social networks are what web is about today. If you don’t have at least one social network account, you practically don’t exist on the Internet. Some would argue about these statements (including myself, mainly concerning Facebook), but at the end of the day, the truth is that social networks matter, to users as well as websites.
Netgen organized the first gathering of Croatian eZ Publish developers at “Zlatni Medo”, pub in Zagreb, Croatia. We were thrilled to host this event because we got the chance to get back in touch with some old friends as well as to meet some new ones. People came from Varaždin and Osijek so the event was countrywide :)
A few notes from the eZ Winter Conference we were attending last week.
Software big guns like Microsoft, Google, Apple, etc. wouldn’t be so spread across the globe if they did not think about the developers who work on their platform, so eZ Systems should do the same thing - take special care about eZ platform developing potential.
Netgen Push provides a simple and effective way to push any kind of content from eZ Publish to various social networks. For the time being, Twitter and Facebook connectors are implemented, while eZ Publish REST API and Tumblr API are in the planning stage. Netgen Push also provides a basic framework to develop your own connectors to any social network that uses OAuth authentication protocol.
