Joomla 3.0 Update: There is No Spoon & Backbone.js: Get Out of the Generic Aisle

Joomla 3.0: There Is No Spoon

Victor Drover

Focus on the challenges facing Joomla from a perspective of the administrative user interface. Following a brief comparison of the recent user interface changes in Mambo/Joomla and WordPress, Victor will summarize where Joomla is headed for the next iteration of the publishing platform, Joomla 3.0.

The presentation will be heavy on ‘eye-candy’ for Joomla 3.0 — due in September 2012 — and will describe the challenges and opportunities for end users, site implementors, designers and add-on developers.

About Victor

Victor is the Founder and CEO of Anything Digital, a well-known Joomla development shop based in Sussex, Wisconsin. His portfolio boasts some of the most popular add-ons for Joomla including SEO and calendaring tools such as sh404SEF and JCal Pro, respectively.

Victor is also a volunteer in the Joomla project and serves/has served on numerous committees including the Joomla Extensions team that manages the official directory for Joomla add-ons and and more recently the Joomla Events team. He has helped organize the J and Beyond international developer conference since January 2011 — including the May 2012 event in Germany — and co-organizes the local Joomla User Group Milwaukee held on the 3rd Thursday of each month.

Backbone.js: Get Out of the Generic Aisle

Arlen Walker & Rob Martin

Arlen Walker (@arlen) and Rob Martin (@version2beta) will present Backbone.js as a tool to take your typical canned widget functionality a step further, and set your work apart from the masses.

Backbone.js is a client-side JavaScript framework, but who really cares about that? What's important is what you can do with it. Arlen and Rob will live code (ooh, scary!) a Twitter widget demonstrating backbone's ability to easily acquire, process and present arbitrary data from diverse sources.

About Arlen & Rob

Rob and Arlen worked on their first project together over two decades ago - they just didn't know it at the time. It was the 1992 Solar and Electric Vehicle Association race. Arlen was on the battery team, and Rob was on the embedded controls team, and the car won first place. Today, Arlen programs under his own flag, Paladin Web Services, and Rob is top devops person at Top Floor Technologies.

    Both talks were interesting and informative. For Backbone.js, I liked the way to two speakers shared the talk and they way they went back and forth with slides and code.
