I♥YOO Winners

You did it again! We received so many exciting pictures from all over the world... Thank you! It was really hard for us to pick the 10 winners. Thus we chose our 20 favorites and randomly picked the 10 lucky winners. We will notify them today by email that they have won a 6 month membership with the app bundle and all the new tools for ZOO 2.0. Congratulations!

We want to thank all of you guys again for participating in our I♥YOO competition. It was really fun! Enjoy the winning pictures.

This year we want to highlight some guys from raramuridesign, South Africa: Matthew, Dwight and Marcos. They did really funny pictures with alien masks through their travel from Cape Town to Amsterdam, Brussels and JandBeyond! Awesome, guys! We did a little Photoshop collage but also check out their travel log "Out of this World" with a lot of more pictures.

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:

ZOO 2.0 in Action!

The second presentation by ZOO developer Jan and support team member Malte showed the ZOO 2.0 in action, and described what benefits you'll gain by using it. The visitors got an insight look of content building and templating and followed a live demonstration of building a blog with the ZOO in five minutes. 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. So due to popular demand we opened a brand new t-shirt shop where you can get them! We were a little creative in our spare time and created a bunch of new designs too. Check out all the cool designs here. For each t-shirt we will make a charitable donation...

ZOO event in retrospect

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

Jun
30

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!

  • Date: Wednesday, May 27th, 2009
  • Time: 19:00 (Central European Summer Time)
  • Location: Hagenbeck ZOO, Tropical Aquarium
  • Address: Lokstedter Grenzstraße 2, Hamburg, Germany
  • Email registration is required until May 20th, 2009

The entry is free. The number of seats is limited though, so drop us an email soon. First come, first served! See you on the 27th of May!

I love YOO Winners

Thank you so much for all the photos you sent us! We are still surprised to see that your photos came from all over the world, this is so cool! So it was really hard for us to pick the ten winners. The people who sent in the ten most awesomest photos each won a license of the ZOO Pro Edition. We will notify all winners by email today.

We especially want to highlight one thing here: There is this one guy, Ben, who made our PDF into a huge billboard and took his family on a trip to take pictures of himself with that thing. Ben: Well done! Check out the I love YOO page on his website and especially his kid saying "I love you (YOO)" in the video, that's the cutest!

We want to thank all of you guys again for participating in our competition, this has been so much fun! Now take a look at the winner photos:

UPDATE: Great video made by Denise. She took some pictures at the Joomla! Day Las Vegas.
