In this blog post, we are going to explore the possibilities of writing well-structured query objects rather than polluting controllers with unnecessary and duplicated code.
We live in a time where knowledge is at our fingertips and educational programs from all disciplines are available online. Yet, people are people and most of us like to communicate in person. We still prefer going to conferences, meetups, and similar events where we can learn from our peers. The question arises: how to estimate the value you get from a conference?
The new Netgen Layouts release brings some much-wanted features along – here’s what’s new.
Web Summer Camp 2018 is slowly but surely closing in. We have defined the tracks (a few surprises there!), finished the speaker selection process, and are working on the track programs and extras – read on!
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.
Hurry to secure your place at Web Summer Camp 2018 – the ticket sale has officially started.
After several early adopters launched their first websites based on Netgen Layouts at the end of 2017, it was a perfect time to speak to them about their experience using our product – what they liked and what they thought we should improve.
Back in 2012, just as eZ Publish saw its first release of version 5, Netgen Tags debuted as a rewrite of the legacy eZ Tags extension for eZ Publish 4. It was rewritten completely, same as eZ kernel was. However, up until a year ago, there was no admin interface for managing tags. The legacy eZ Tags admin interface was perfectly adequate, so a new one simply wasn't a priority. A lot has changed since then.
After implementing translations capabilities in the Netgen Layouts version 0.9, it was time to deal with several medium-sized and numerous smaller features that were needed on ours and the projects of our early adopters. Here are the added features in the version 0.10.
Another Web Summer Camp is behind us! More than 200 participants, companions, speakers, and sponsors gathered for hands-on learning, networking, and fun on the last days of summer.
Why exciting? Well, this was supposed to be a blog post announcing the full program and calling you to get your tickets before the Early Bird tickets close, with the appropriate soundtrack. The truth is, you overwhelmed us by your interest and we are officially announcing that, as of last week, Web Summer Camp 2017 is sold out! Let’s take a look what we have prepared for you end of August.
It took four years since the initial release of the bundle, but the admin interface is finally here. So, what took us so long? Well, there are a number of reasons, but the two most prominent ones are the existence of legacy admin interface for eZ Tags in eZ Publish 5 era, which more than enough fulfilled our needs, and an extreme lack of resources to implement the new admin interface in Platform UI in eZ Platform era.
After using the old eZ Publish administration for more than a decade, it seemed that the journey will come to an end. The new eZ Platform UI revolution should have put the old dog out of business by now. That hasn't happened yet, so we gave this old dog a new life in such manner that it could still be used on many projects.
We decided to build an app for our demo site and we opted to prototype the native mobile application with React Native that would use content from eZ Publish CMS.
This year’s Summer Camp was bound to be interesting even before it started. We changed the brand, added a new topic, moved to a new venue, and were curious and eager to see how our participants would respond to the transition. Well, it turns out we had no reason to worry. :)
Netgen's Site API is a separate layer on top of the existing eZ Platform Repository API, designed to make developing websites easier, faster, and less error-prone.
We are proud to present the first version of Netgen Layouts, an easy and flexible way of managing layouts for Symfony-based web solutions. Netgen Layouts is an add-on tool on top of an existing CMS or e-commerce system. It should serve as a strong collaboration point where site builders, UX designers, and developers can manage and maintain the website layout structure in a simple but extensible way. With Netgen Layouts we want to reinvent the website implementation process and make it more agile.
A long, long time ago we used only one tool for syncing development instances with production environments - FTP. Over the years, we at Netgen improved slowly but are still not where we want to be. The main problem is that we have many projects and clients with different infrastructure in type and size. It is very hard to consolidate the process in that situation. Here is what we have managed so far using Vagrant, Ansible, and PhpStorm.
We are delighted to announce that Super Early Bird tickets for Web Summer Camp are available! Find below all info on the ticket price and what it includes as well as other Camp news and novelties.
For the fifth year in a row, we are organizing Summer Camp for web developers and other web professionals. Over time, our event grew organically. It evolved through widening the scope and the range of topics being covered. The branding also needed to be altered along the event itself. This is a short tale about our event logo evolution.
We at Netgen have been involved in the eZ community for quite a while now. Our first contribution to Croatian translations of eZ Publish version 3 was almost 10 years ago. Nowadays, we are deeply immersed and engaged in the community. We are open sourcing our work, blogging about our experiences, planning our 5th in a row eZ Publish Summer Camp, and more. Now that the eZ Publish next generation, better known as eZ Platform, was released, we would like to encourage others from the community to follow our example and start adopting the new stack with a quicker pace.
As announced on the community site, the Christmas Special episode was with Roland Benedetti, Chief Product Officer of eZ System, as a guest. The main topic was the recent release of eZ Platform and eZ Studio, a long-awaited next generation of eZ Publish CMS.
We figured there is no better time to announce Summer Camp 2016 than the holiday season. We know the time and the place, the rest of the information will be on your way soon. Since we always strive for improvement, we have some exciting news for you in that department! So, here goes!
As you probably know, eZ Publish Community 2014.11 is the last stable release of eZ Publish 5 hybrid stack (not counting the enterprise versions, naturally). You also probably know that it is stuck on Symfony 2.5 and is missing some nicer features and bug fixes from the eZ Platform (currently in beta) and eZ Publish Enterprise 5.4.x releases.
Currently, Platform UI is still in its early versions, but it's nearing release. This article deals with integrating custom field types into the new Admin interface. I'm using our TagsBundle as an example.
