We are releasing our Netgen Remote Media for eZ Platform with Cloudinary support

A while ago, our partners at Keyteq decided not to support their own solution for hosting and transforming images anymore and came to us with an idea to reimplement the solution using a cloud service called Cloudinary. We jumped at the opportunity and decided to come up with a little more generic solution together with our friends at Effectiva, with the idea of a feature that could, in the end, be reusable with different cloud providers – enter Netgen Remote Media.

How to start using Netgen Admin UI

A lot of existing eZ projects are still using eZ Publish legacy stack, fully or partially – it is an eZ ecosystem reality. A typical eZ project tends to be big, long living, and complex, so rebuilding everything might not be a viable solution. The more realistic path is upgrading the site to the newest eZ version and refactoring it step by step until getting rid of all legacy code. This is where Netgen Admin UI with the Legacy Bridge comes in handy.

We are releasing Netgen Admin UI to the public

After a lot of thought and discussions, we finally decided to make our Admin UI available to the public. It should serve as a smoother migration path to the new eZ Platform era for many existing eZ Publish projects.

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

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. :)

After a lot of work on rebranding the Summer Camp, we focused on assembling valuable workshops and other activities. Earlier this month the program was completed with the whole schedule available online.

Introducing Web Summer Camp 2016

A few months ago, we announced the date and location for our 2016 Summer Camp event. We’ve been organizing the event since 2012 under the name eZ Publish Summer Camp. In 2014, we added PHP topics and adjoined PHP Summer Camp to it. This year, with the complex process of developing web solutions in mind, we added one more topic that is related to web design and decided to group the topics under one umbrella brand: Web Summer Camp.

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.

2015! The year of investments

One more great year has passed. It was a year of various investments we undertook, following the strategy we set in 2014. Things have not been going as fast as we wished, but that was to be expected. In a service-based business it is hard to execute things that are not related to everyday client work, but hey, it doesn’t mean we should retreat.

An eZ Week in NYC

Earlier this year, when it was announced that eZ Conference 2015 is going to be held in New York, I had mixed feelings about the place of business. Two ten-hour-long plane trips and seven days out of the office seemed like quite an investment, but since we are building Netgen to be the top eZ expert, New York was the place to be.

PHP & eZ Publish Summer Camp Odyssey 2015

When we announced PHP & eZ Publish Summer Camp 2015 in March, we must admit we had only been secretly hoping for such an amazing turnout - the Camp was sold out! Now it’s time for us to share with you the gained experience, shared knowledge, and all the fun we had during and between the workshops.

eZ Community on Slack

Exactly a month ago I created eZ Community on Slack. For those of you who do not know what is Slack, let’s say it is a modern version of IRC. It got really popular as an internal tool for companies (we at Netgen started using it a while ago). I’ve also noticed that people started to use it for community communication too, so it didn't take me long to create one instance for the eZ community.

2014! The baseline for a great future

So another year has passed. It has passed so quickly probably because we have been so busy. Each year the Netgen team surprises me with all the things achieved and this year was the best so far. The new year has started so it’s time for a short recap, just like for the last 3 years: 2011, 2012, 2013.

‘Tis the season of sharing

Netgen story has always been about sharing - sharing knowledge, sharing experience, sharing the moments of joy and fun. One of the reasons I came here was to help with the growing marketing and event organization needs - in a fewer words, to help with the sharing. With that said, I could not have boarded the Netgen ship at a more exciting and opportune time - December, a true sharing spirited month.

2013! On a right path, still a lot to reach the goal

A year ago, while concluding year 2012, I wrote 2 simple goals for the company in year 2013. To be more efficient as a team while maintaining level of engagement. By engagement I mean all time that is spent for education, helping the community, charity or just in communication with all possible peers.

2012! It was a challenging year, but even more challenging year started

One year ago we were summarizing year 2011. Now is the time to underline what we achieved in year 2012 and also what we learned in the process. It will be interesting to see on how we met the expectations for 2012: to have more engagement, to work more, to earn more. Let see how we performed.

eZ Publish Summer Camp - behind the scenes - part 2

We have just hit a new milestone. After opening the registrations back in May, today we finished all that we can do off site and tomorrow we are going to the Summer Camp location (Bol on island of Brač) to finish the preparations and welcome all attendees. Also, the registrations on the web site are closed too as we exceeded our expectations and there is too little time for some late guest to organize the trip.

eZ Publish Summer Camp - behind the scenes

It was late November. My colleague Vjeran and me were driving to our second office (in Osijek). Driving for few hours on a highway is an excellent opportunity to brainstorm. It is usually hard to find time to discuss some ideas as you always have some better things to do. So we brainstormed so intensely that we missed the turn and lost 20 minutes going around :)

eZ Partner Conference 2012 in Lisbon - Overview

Usually I start with the event itself and mention the location at the end. This time the location really deserves to be mentioned first. In my humble opinion Lisbon was a bulls-eye decision due to the beautiful weather (sunny with almost 15 degrees Celsius) while most other parts of Europe were covered with snow and under freezing -15 degrees Celsius :). It was a great pleasure to enjoy the sun and discuss the future of eZ with other attendees.

2011! What a year for Netgen. Lot of expectation for 2012 too

eZ Conference 2011 in London, a Late Recap

It has been more than a month now from the event so the topic is no longer in the spotlight, but I will do a late recap anyway. The main reason for such a big delay was, to be completely honest, no free time whatsoever. So I hope you find this post as a nice reminder on the event.

A meeting of Croatian eZ Publish developers (in a pub) - Summary

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 :)

Developers, developers, developers! (a repost)

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.
