Why Web Summer Camp of all events?

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?

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.

How to successfully build websites with Netgen Layouts – stories by the early adopters

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.

Custom admin interfaces in eZ Platform made easy: The story of Netgen Tags

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.

Tags Bundle finally has an admin interface!

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.

Admin interface (r)evolution

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.

Web Summer Camp 2016 - engaging workshops and experience sharing on the radiant Croatian coast

Netgen Layouts debut

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.

Improving our DevOps with Vagrant, Ansible, and PhpStorm

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.

Summer Camp logo evolution

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.

eZ Platform is out! Community, full throttle now!

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.

Introducing Netgen variant of eZ Publish Community 2014.11 kernel

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.
