How can we make it better?

daniel-dubois-projects

The web has completely changed since its birth, 25 years ago. It has changed from a small niche group of users to a global user base in just a few years. Out have sprung the giants of Tech and the tools to produce and manage ever more content online. Over that time the ecosphere of web creation tools has changed. For example the advent of mobile phones has forced us to change the way we build our websites. Joomla has also had to evolve over the years to stay alive. Even a strong community and good quality code is not enough to keep your place in this competitive world. 

In 2014 I decided to help Joomla with the skills I had at hand. I became involved in many different projects. I got the chance to participate in several international meetings. Each of these meetings gave me the opportunity to get to know and exchange ideas with exceptional people from all over the world. Many have become my friends.

The Single Sign On, Identity and Consent Management on Joomla.org

joomla_identity

Privacy Laws like GDPR introduced several new requirements that changed the way we think the data management and the pathway to the privacy compliance.

Privacy by design and by default were just some of the requirements that web developers should take under consideration before they develop new apps. But of course, apps were online also before GDPR effectiveness and as expected the Joomla Project and more specifically the Joomla Compliance Team, has started to evaluate the current situation to result to effective, security and privacy solutions.

Keeping your Joomla website up-to-date

Keeping your Joomla website up-to-date

As of release 3.5 Joomla is collecting stats data, thanks to the stats plugin (only works if it’s enabled), and it found too many websites are not using the currently supported release of 3.9.2. This data is based on the Joomla, PHP, and database version. These are some pretty alarming statistics, and should not be ignored! We have provided some links at the bottom of this article for your reference, review, and to even get the latest release of Joomla.

A Statement on the Recent Report by Check Point

A report by Check Point Research has been brought to our attention relating to a security vulnerability that was patched back in December 2015. This report has also been picked up by Threat Post.

Both reports contain a great deal of inaccuracies and intimate that the vulnerability detailed is a current one. 
This statement serves to clarify the facts surrounding this issue. Furthermore we would like to assure our user base that, much as these posts attempt to state that this is a current issue, the truth of the matter is far from that.

The Joomla Security Strike Team (JSST) was invited to send a delegation to the CMS Security Summit, organised by Google and taking place in Chicago. JSST leads David Jardin and Tobias Zulauf took that opportunity and travelled to Illinois to meet security team leads from other CMS, web hosts and of course a bunch of Googlers representing various projects and initiatives from the company.

Talking about a Modern Joomla

There is an elephant in the room, the modernization of Joomla. The mobile world is transforming the web technology. There is an accumulated sum of innovations waiting to be interpreted. It has taken years to reach the present tipping point, but it is finally arriving as new features included in the evergreen browsers (Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera). Beyond the fine detail, the general web landscape is changing, and that is what we need to address to modernize Joomla.

Joomla Security Team Sprint, Cologne, May 2018 I guess we all agree that it’s one of Joomla’s key priorities to offer a software that is as secure as possible, as this plays a crucial role in the user’s experience running Joomla - a hacked user, is a very unhappy user.

Privacy by default and GDPR, examples and best practises

5ae5ceda5b6d9c6e759d694c2acda2b9_L
EU citizens will soon expect that their personal data will by default be processed more carefully, transparently and only for the purposes for which they provided their explicit consent. The General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) introduces many improvements to personal data protection. It doesn’t matter whether the service provider is physically located in EU area or not, or if the provided services are paid or free of charge. If the service is available to people within the EU and personal data is involved, the regulation shall be applied and personal data must be protected according to the GDPR.

New Joomla Adventure

29796355_s

At the 2017 JoomlaDay Chicago event during the welcome address, I shared with the attendees a bit about the interns we’ve had the pleasure of working with. I also mentioned that I would like to do more, perhaps at the community college level. I wanted to help others understand the power of a CMS, especially one like Joomla.   

Well, since then an amazing opportunity fell into my lap, the chance to be an adjunct faculty member at DePaul University in the Chicago Loop. The subject is Content Management Systems.  While all the students will walk away with a strong sense of how much I love working with Joomla, they will also walk away (hopefully) with knowledge of how to evaluate and select the right tool for the right job - in this case the right CMS for the content that will be presented.

Extensions We're Thankful For

JED-newsletter-2017_80899dd88e8405b5367989d033c3b179

Wednesday, November 8th is the Extensions We're Thankful For meeting at Joomla User Group Chicago North or JUGCN.  This is one of my favorite meetings.  It's a chance for everyone to chime in on the extensions that have made their site development easier.  There are of course some that are included year after year such as AkeebaBackup and RSForms, but it is also a chance to discover new extensions.  With nearly 8,000 (7,948 the last time I looked at extensions.joomla.org) there is bound to be an undiscovered gem of a favorite.  

Check out the 2016 Favorite Extensions, share yours and join us Wednesday, November 8th at 11 am online or in-person (we provide lunch and great conversation) to go over this year's 2017 Joomla Extensions We're Thankful For.

Register for JoomlaDay Chicago and Enter to Win Joomla 3 Explained!

http://mailchi.mp/f15efc6b41ab/register-for-joomladay-chicago-and-enter-to-win-joomla-3-explained
joomla3explained

It's getting close to JoomlaDay Chicago and I'm excited. We're at a new location and we're offering the Joomla Certification Exam. In talking with members of Joomla User Group Chicago North (JUGCN) and the JoomlaDay Chicago committee, we were trying to find resources to help those looking to take the test. I started reading this book, Joomla 3 Explained, by Steve Burge and OSTraining.

I like it a lot, both for its structure and content.

I've been using Joomla for about a decade and I still learned a lot. It's because I enjoyed this book so much that I thought it would be a good idea to give away a copy to a fellow Joomler in time to read BEFORE JoomlaDay. So, anyone who is registered by September 1st (including those who registered some time ago - thank you) are eligible to win. You will have your choice of digital or paperback.

Go to JoomlaDayChicago.com to register today
