The YOOteam in California

We are back from the Joomla World Conference and brought 10 winners in our bags.

The YOOteam in California!

First of all we want to thank all of you guys! We had a great time at the Joomla World Conference 2012. It was really exciting to meet you all and get to know the people using Joomla and our products... and of course to take great pictures with you for our photo competition!

The Power of ZOO

The JWC offered a lot of really interesting talks and keynotes on a variety of topics for developers, designers and the whole community. We were especially excited about one of them. As many of you already know the ZOOlanders attended the conference as well and gave a talk on The Power of ZOO. So the YOOtheme team did not miss out on this opportunity to listen to Daniele's great talk. Read more about it in their JWC review blog post.

San Francisco

The Joomla World Conference '12 in San Jose was not the only stop for the YOOtheme team. Being in California we had to go to San Francisco, of course. And it was totally worth it! Cable Cars, Lombard Street, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Muir Woods or China Town, we tried to visit everything we could manage in the time we had. Besides all the cool sightseeing stuff we also had the great opportunity to celebrate Thanksgiving and see how everybody is going crazy on the Black Friday, including ourselves ;)

Photo Competition

It was great to meet so many people and take a photo with them. We really enjoyed talking to you and sharing some beers later. We received so many cool pictures and it was hard to pick the 10 lucky winners. All winners will be notified by mail today that they have won a Joomla theme developer membership.

A big thanks again to all of you participating in our photo competition at the conference. Enjoy the winning pictures.

JUG meetup in retrospect

First time JUG Hamburg meeting at the Casino Kampnagel

JUG meetup in retrospect

Yesterday was the Joomla User Group meeting we organized in Hamburg. Thanks to all of you who joined us. We all had a great time! We were about 30 people - from newbie to experienced Joomla user. Most of them came from Hamburg and nearby but some even traveled a longer distance from Mannheim! The meetup started at 19:30 and the last ones left shortly after midnight. We had a lot of nice conversations and it was great to meet all the people who are passionate about Joomla chatting together.

We didn't expect that much people so for us the JUG meetup was a big success. We got a lot of positive feedback during the meetup so we are confident to be organizing a second JUG meetup later this year. But next up is the Joomladay in Hamburg on September 2nd and 3rd. We will be there on both days (Business and Community Day) and will be available for all kinds of questions. We hope to see all of you guys there!

Live presentations online!

On Monday 31st of May we attended the JandBeyond conference in Wiesbaden/Germany


First of all we want to thank the organizers of the JandBeyond conference for this great event and the whole on-site organization. Robert, Alex and the whole team did a great job! We had the chance to present two sessions about our templates and the new ZOO 2.0. For those of you who did not have the chance to see the presentations live, we recorded both of them on video and are proud to show you the result in this blog post. So lean back and enjoy the show!

YOOtheme templates - An inside look!

In our first presentation, Sven one of our lead designers took a closer look at the design process and the magic behind YOOtheme templates. He gave an insight of what makes a template a good tempate and what we do to achieve this. He also explained how easy it is to customize images of the templates using Fireworks.

ZOO event in retrospect

Take a look at all the pictures and the video we created of our ZOO presentation.


Today we want to give a brief roundup on our ZOO presentation at Hagenbeck ZOO's Tropical Aquarium on May 27th, 2009. We know that it has already been five weeks since we had this great event but it took us some time to look through all the pictures, create the video and prepare this blog post.

First of all, thanks everyone for coming. We were almost 40 people in the Huge Shark Atoll, and we think it was a very nice evening with a stunning atmosphere. The presentation was divided into three parts. The first one was held by Annabel, talking about the architecture and the different application purposes of the ZOO. Then, Janine talked about everything you can do in the backend of the ZOO, creating catalogs, categories, types and items. After Janine's presentation, Sven showed what you can do with templates and overrides, how to render elements and what the different views are for. He also showed in which folders you can find all the files needed to create templates and what all of those files do, basically everything you need to know to be able to create your own templates. After the presentation, Steffan gave a lookout on which features are going to be implemented in the next ZOO versions. We will do a blog post about the upcoming features of ZOO 1.1 in the next weeks. Finally we had individual conversations about Joomla, the ZOO, YOOtheme and the daily work we all do as web developers, of which some were very inspiring.

We recorded the whole event and created a short video for all who could not participate. Don't forget to continue reading to see all the images. Enjoy the video impressions:
