A New Resources Directory
In the August issue of the Joomla Community Magazine the Joomla Resources Directory (JRD) team announced that we had planned to close this site with plans to implement a new one for the community. As a part of that plan we are following up by putting this announcement to inform site users and visitors to look forward to the new site. Please read the article we published for more information about why we did this and the timeline for what we have in store!
As a result of the plan you'll notice a few changes:
- We aren't accepting any new submissions to this site.
- We aren't going to approve / moderate any existing listings.
- We are going to be archiving this site for the time being until a date to be determined in the future. The site will remain mostly static, unless you wish to completely remove your listing.
The biggest requirement when looking online for a Joomla programmer is that he knows the Joomla framework. This might sound strange, but it isn't. Joomla acepts all kind of coding, as long as it's properly hooked but not all kind of coding is Joomla coding. What you should look for is: use of the Joomla MVC model and for big extensions use of the ORM features of Joomla implemented in tables (for easy code refactoring), use of security practices (direct access denial, token check for all forms, passing all the variables trough JRequest and trough JInputFilter when Allowraw is set), proper use of hooks to allow flexibility (plugin system), proper use of internationalization features (passing of all the output strings trough JText) and proper use of layouts for easy template overriding, basic knowledge of scaling the application if necessary.
What we do
-custom extension development
-template design and implementation
-e-commerce and electronic payment
-large website optimization
Really switched on, flexible and a great listener and truly interested in what his client needs.
He also helped me in understanding Joomla so that I could do some basic work on my new Joomla site.
Adrian really does care about relationships. He will be the first programmer I contact when I need help again.
