The most overlooked part in software development - writing project documentation

Software developers like to write code and they like it very much. They tend to enjoy writing exhausting tests and continuous integration/continuous deployment configurations to assure top-notch quality of software. However, most of the time one part of the whole software development process somehow goes under the radar. The most overlooked part is writing documentation. We always tend to say to ourselves that we will write the documentation once the project is finished, or that we will release this version first and write the documentation later. LeBlanc’s law clearly states: Later equals never. I think this requires no explanation, but instead forces us to act.

Dealing with the complexity of eZ Platform architecture

When we started developing web solutions with eZ Publish in 2004, the architecture was simple. We had a Linux operating system, an Apache web server, a MySQL database, and PHP runtime as an Apache module. You know this architecture by its LAMP acronym.

Over the years, things got a bit more complicated due to performance reasons and because some other tools were suitable for some specific features. The situation exploded with the new stack and eZ Platform. We are now on LNMpPf7VHMS as our default architecture with the possibility of adding a few more letters in the near future.

Short backstory of our blog: Sharing our experience from various web projects based on eZ Publish / eZ Platform, Symfony, PHP, HTML5, MySQL, jQuery, CSS, etc. and focusing on solving the problems we encountered.
