JoomlaDay Germany 2014

We joined the conference in Cologne and gave insights about Warp and UIkit.

JoomlaDay Germany 2014

Almost two weeks ago part of the YOOtheme team attended the JoomlaDay in Cologne - a great event. We met old friends, joined interesting talks and had the opportunity to hold two workshops ourselves. Although we could only be there for one day we had much fun and enjoyed showing Warp and UIkit to the community. Our Warp session (held in German) is available through the Jandbeyond Youtube channel. Unfortunately our second session won’t be available because of technical and acoustical problems.

The YOOteam in Boston

Joomla World Conference 2013 was awesome!

The YOOteam in California!

We had a great time at the Joomla World Conference 2013, which took place at Boston's Harvard Medical School. Big thanks to all the organizers, speakers and participants we had the chance to meet there. The range of talks was enormous and all of them were worth a look and a listen.

Boston City

Apart from the Joomla World Conference 2013 we took advantage of the opportunity to get to know Boston. What an amazing city! Not only the Harvard campus was quite impressive but also Boston's city and the beautiful harbour are worth a visit. Our personal highlight was an evening at the Barking Crab, where we all had giant crabs that were freshly caught out of the sea.

I ♥ YOO Winners

It was amazing to meet you all and take time for a talk and a beer! We hope you all had a great journey to Boston, a good time at the JWC 13 and came back home safely. Many of you sent us wonderful pictures for the competition, which show your love towards YOOtheme. THANK YOU for every picture!

All winners of a Joomla theme developer membership will be notified by mail today!

Joomladay Germany 2013

Last Friday we attended the Joomladay Germany in Nuremberg. Even though we could only be there for the business day, we had great fun, got to meet old friends, saw a number of interesting talks and had giant cookies. Congrats to the organizers who did a great job on the event. We even had the chance to present two sessions of our own. Our developer Artur also took the opportunity to give a lightning session during the tech talks. For those who missed our presentations, you can watch them here through the Jandbeyond Youtube channel. Both sessions were held in German.

Joomla!Day Germany 2013

We are doing two talks about Warp and UIkit at the Joomla!Day Germany in Nürnberg!

Joomla!Day Germany 2013

This year's Joomla!Day takes place on 13th and 14th of September in Nürnberg! It's a two day event: The Business Day on Friday and the Community Day on Saturday. Both days come with a great speaker lineup.

YOOtheme is again Silver sponsor and the whole team will be attending the Business Day. Even better, we will give two talks that day, one about the Warp theme framework and one about our new UIkit front-end framework. It will be a great introduction on how to build Joomla themes with both frameworks.

We are giving away two tickets for both days. Just retweet our tweet to get a chance to win. Or head over to the Joomla!Day website and book your tickets there.

Hope to see you in Nürnberg!

We are growing

A brief update on our future plans


This post is about the `Status Quo` of YOOtheme, our future plans and the new product pricing. In the last 6 months we spent a lot of time developing and re-inventing the foundation of our themes. Namely, our new Warp 7 framework which is behind all our current theme releases and UIkit, our new front-end framework.

Theme releases

During the development of our latest themes we realized a rising complexity. Five years ago all we had to do was to make the theme look great in every browser. Nowadays, themes are much more feature-rich. They are responsive and we have to deal with all kinds of viewports and devices. Our latest Warp 7 release brings two new elements into the development: LESS and our new customizer. Making the customizer work great takes a lot of tweaking of all the different variables. Also, the demo content and style variations have become a lot more sophisticated and require a lot of work. In conclusion, we can say that each theme takes 2 months of design and development.
