Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during 52nd week. Enjoy!
As we approach not only the end of the year but the end of a decade I spent a little time looking back at some articles I wrote back in 2007. Finding this one I was perhaps not surprised but definitely disappointed that it's as true today as it was then.
The article was not looked at with a critical eye or an open mind in 2007, perhaps it is different today as the same discussions are still taking place?

We've covered Siteground twice before on this blog. The first time I talked with grudging admiration about how they manage to dominate hosting search results by creating fake review sites and putting themselves at #1. Then we looked at how they'd taken over the old Mambo website for self-promotion.

One of the great things about the recent Joomla! Developers Conference in New York was that, with Andrew, Ian, Louis, Ron, Sam, and myself, we had all four Development Coordinators plus a majority of the Production Work Group all in one place for the very first time. This gave us the chance to talk in depth about an important issue that is critical to the future of the project -- the release cycle.

Where I work, we are using cvs ( i know), but it works. Currently we have our projects set up thusly: We have our Joomla current release package checked in as a single project, and then any custom work (modules, components, templates) get built on the same release, then diffed from the core and then checked in as a separate project. So, if you are keeping score at home, there is a multi-step process to deployments.
- Establish naming conventions
- Never use generic names for classes, IDs and form names in your code like “comment” or “article”. Someone else may do so too, so you can kiss your app’s functionality bye-bye!

After deciding on the final name for the event this week we are now heading for the next steps in the overall event organization. As discussed in the event group we have now more little items to cover. More and more people are getting involved in the idea of having an international event related the Joomla project and it is great to see the feedback and ideas we get. Please keep those ideas coming.
