My Low-tech To-Do List

Everyone who works, wants to be as productive as possible, and I’m sure everyone’s got his tools to make sure that’s the case. At work, we’re using a combination of ApolloHQ for project Management, a Joomla 3.2 site with Akeeba Tickets for support, Office 365 for collaboration and OpenERP for… well, all other things. Each …

J & More Runs On WordPress and it’s partially your fault.

“Nice blog you’ve got there. But, ehm… I couldn’t help but notice you are using WordPress. To blog about Joomla. That’s funny, haha. What’s that all about?” Occasionaly, someone who reads a post (and hopefully more than one) discovers that Joomla & More – a blog dedicated to the CMS Joomla – runs on WordPress.  …

Joomla! Next: Dead to the CMS. Hail the Application Platform

This is and old(er) post I managed to save from my old blog, which I deleted. Accidentaly. Which makes an excellent case for back-ups.

How I built a team of 100 Translators

One or two weeks ago, the Dutch team of OpenTranslators  – which I’m proud to coordinate – passed a “big” milestone, when the 100Th translator was approved. That’s one hundred people, translating extensions into Dutch. The results speak for themselves: the Dutch team is the most productive OpenTranslators team – outperforming some bigger teams like …

Here we go (again)!

Recently I’ve been having thoughts. To be specific,  I had ideas for things I want to blog about but they didn’t seem like a good fit for my blog I’m best known for (Joomla & More). After some experimenting, they weren’t a great foundation for new, specific blogs either. That was rather dissapointing, and definitely …
