  • For the love of statistics

    Just over a week ago we sent out a newsletter to Symphony website members. It's not often that we take the effort to do mail-outs, but when we do, we make sure we've got important things to say. We thought that we should share our newsletter and survey results with the community.

  • Symphony Factory

    In a previous blog post, I outlined Symphony's plans for the Symphony website and how spin-off projects from the community can congregate to become a family of networked sites. That plan starts with Symphony Factory

  • Introducing Soario Inc.

    Today is the day I get to proudly announce Soario, a company co-founded by yours truly, sewn from the seeds of Symphony CMS.

  • New Symphony website Plans

    The current design of the Symphony website is a couple years old now. We’ve had plans to overhaul it over a year ago that never really came into fruition. That is not to say that we haven’t been working on it, though. The challenge as it turned out was defining exactly it is that we wanted to achieve with our new website.

    The rest of the article examines the key requirements the new site and how we intent to go about implementing it. While I would've liked to have posted this article alongside a surprise launch of the new site, truth be told, we still have a little ways to go yet. Instead of keeping quiet about all the exciting plans for several more months, I thought it's better to lay it all out.

  • A short note about PHP5.2 support

    The Symphony 2.3 release opens up a whole new range of possibilities for developers to create awesome sites and applications. We've cleaned up a lot of the codebase and we are always looking at ways to make it leaner and more efficient. Because of this reason, we've decided that the Symphony 2.3 line will be the final releases that we test against PHP5.2.

    We feel that with the recent release of PHP 5.4, now is a good time to end our relationship and look forward to the new possibilities that developing with a PHP 5.3+ codebase brings.

  • Announcing Symphony 2.3

    Last year, a baker once asked me, "Do you want icing on your cake?" Now, if there is just one thing you need to know about me, it would be that my answer is always, "Yes, ALL the icing." This year, I've gone back to my baker to get a new cake. And before I continue with my fictitious story, yes, I have an appointed baker, like I do with tailors, hairdressors and manicurists. I'm an important man, dammit.

  • Hackathon 2.3 Podcast

    Allen raises his left fist. "You see this fist?", Allen remarks with conviction. "He has a brother." Allen then raises his right arm, but soon realised he didn't have a free hand to point to both his fists. Without the ability to point to his intimidating punching instruments of death, he feared the impact of his message would be somewhat diminished. "I really need someone to point to my fists", Allen quietly utters to himself.

    Brendan, standing next to him heard Allen's mumble and like a true showman, pointed to Allen's pumping fists with gusto. Jazz hands were even involved at one point during the pointing affair.

  • A new way to discover extensions
