Our team will be there on both days and will be available for all kinds of questions. You are welcome to talk with us about our templates, the Warp Theme Framework, the Widgetkit, the ZOO extension or just about Joomla - no matter if you are a newbie or an experienced developer. We are already excited and hope to meet all the guys again from the JUG meetup in Hamburg last month.

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!

JUG Meetup in Hamburg

We are going to organize a Joomla User Group meeting in Hamburg, Germany! It will be a social meeting in a relaxed atmosphere in a restaurant/bar. Anyone who is working with Joomla, no matter if you are a newbie or an experienced developer, is invited to join us. We will chat about Joomla and you can ask our team about the template designs, the Warp6 framework and our ZOO extension. Thomas Kahl, organizer of the Joomla Day Germany 2011 and known as VirtuemartExpert will join us, too. So if you are starting an ebusiness he's the guy you want to talk to. Also Jan Gieselberg will join our meet up. You will know him from his website Joomla Downloads where he usually blogs about Joomla and provides a directory for selected extensions.

We think this get together will be a great warm up for the upcoming Joomla Day Germany in Hamburg. Expect some good conversations and lots of fun! And the best part is all beers will be on us, the whole evening! So come and join us.

The meetup will be on Wednesday, 15. June at 19.30 in Hamburg (Winterhude, Gertigstraße). Please send us an email if you will attend. The location will be announced soon. We look forward to meet all of you soon!

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. Watch the presentation:

I love YOO t-shirts

Ta-ta-tada! We are pretty proud to present our new online t-shirt shop! Since our I♥YOO competition and ZOO presentation last year, people would ask us where to get those I♥YOO t-shirts.

ZOO event in retrospect

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

Jun

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:

ZOO presentation in Hamburg

Our newest product ZOO was well received by the Joomla community, so we think it's time to celebrate the pleasant outcome of a year's worth of work with you! On May 27th, 2009, we are going to have our first YOOtheme event ever: We are really excited to invite you to our ZOO presentation in Hamburg, Germany. The event will begin at 19:00 (Central European Summer Time). The rough agenda is that first we will present the power of the ZOO and its true CCK functionality and show you how everything works. We will structure the presentation to be informative for both people who haven't used the ZOO yet and experienced developers. After the presentation we are planning on having a lively discussion amongst the participants. The presentation and discussion will be held in German. Of course, all YOOtheme developers and designers will be there. We are looking forward to meeting you!

Exciting Location

We chose a location with an ambience that fits the occasion perfectly. Experience a night in company of sharks roaming the reefs of the South Seas: Our presentation will take place at a tribune viewing the Huge Shark Atoll of the Hagenbeck ZOO's Tropical Aquarium. Snap at the chance to meet fellow web developers in a stunning atmosphere!
