JoomlaDay Germany 2015

We presented UIkit, Warp and Widgetkit and had a fun couple of days together

JoomlaDay Germany 2015

After 4 years the Joomla community finally gathered in our home town Hamburg again! Last week we came together at Trabrennbahn Bahrenfeld, a local harness racing track, for JoomlaDay Germany and to celebrate the 10th birthday of Joomla! This event is always a great opportunity to meet friends, exchange knowledge and to sit down for some interesting talks. To us this was a particularly exciting as we not only got in touch with users and answered their questions in our tech corner.

We also had the chance to give talks of our own. If you couldn't make it to JoomlaDay or our talks, don't worry! All three sessions on UIkit, Warp and Widgetkit, which were held in German, have been recorded and uploaded to the JandBeyond YouTube channel.

JoomlaDay Germany 2015 Impressions

UIkit, the modular front-end framework

Our first talk about UIkit was held by our web developers Artur Heinze and Florian Letsch. They got into the basics of our front-end framework and demonstrated simple examples of how to create your own websites and interfaces with UIkit components.

Warp 7, the perfect basis for theme development

Our web designers Anne Möller and Franziska Schulz talked about our framework and explained how you can optimize your workflow with Warp. They presented some of its many features and took a look into Warp's upcoming generation.

Widgetkit 2, the widget creator

Web designer Danny Knaack and web developer Hendrik Behnke gave an overview of how to use the new structure of Widgetkit 2 to integrate content with a Joomla based website.

After every talk we had some time to answer questions and to discuss a few things. If you still have questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to leave a comment below.

    I'm sure these videos are excellent and very helpful. The widgetkit one actually shows how to build custom widgets (something I have wanted to see ever since it's launch!). However...I don't speak German. Please could we possibly get the same videos redone by the yootheme team in English?

      Or at least subtitled in english, it could be great for non german speaking people.

    One of the reasons Warp 7 Uikit and Zoo are not as popular as they deserve to be. is the lack of commitment by yootheme to supply quality video instructions on how to use there products.

    If people understood how to implement these products correctly and in depth they would realize there is no better way to build a website. I have built over 200 websites using yootheme products and can tell you now that if you learn the ins and outs of zoo widgetkit and warp. your productive will increase dramatically.

    You guys have built a fantastic system to build website support this by giving people a proper in-site into your products.

    ZOO should be the number one CKK for jommla as it far superior to anything available. Even creating your own item views and module renders requires very little coding experience.

    The reason it is not the number one is you need to show people how to use your products properly

    I have an important thing for Warp8! Please insert a field for the favicon, so I don`t have to upload it again after update. Other theme distributor have it for a long time!
