JoomlaDay Florida LogoJoomlaDay Florida will be held on Feb 25-26, 2017 in Tampa, Florida!

I will be presenting two sessions, one on Saturday and a workshop on Sunday. The two day event looks wonderful with many sessions, roundtable discussions, and an exam offering.

The session I will be presenting:

Gantry framework development
In this session Robbie Adair will showcase the Gantry template framework.

Fabrik Workshop
Can’t find a Joomla! component to fit your needs? The Fabrik extension gives you the ability to go well beyond the core capabilities of Joomla. From basic capabilities to custom databases and applications, Fabrik provides a foundation to make anything possible in Joomla! Fabrik applications can go to the next level by using more advanced features such as: element javascript options, the calc element, cascading dropdowns, Joomla ACL, customizing view templates, as well as displaying and editing data from an external database directly inside your Joomla! site.

JoomlaDay Houston LogoJoomlaDay Houston will be held on Feb 11, 2017 at the new Microsoft located next to City Centre!

Not only am I offering two sessions, but I'm also one of the organizers of the event. We have a great schedule planned and will be offering the Joomla Certification exam as well. I'll also be holding an exam review in the morning for anyone who is taking the exam.

The session I will be presenting:

WHAT'S ON YOUR MENU(S)?
For many Joomla! users there is a lot of confusion around menus. In this session, we will look at a simple quick menu add, then go back step by step taking a deeper look into the options and settings along the way, including covering menu item types and multiple menus. A deeper understanding of menus opens up a world of possibilities in Joomla!

Building with Fabrik Part 1 with Hugh Messenger
We’ll explore using Fabrik, a Joomla application builder extension. You’ll learn how to create custom tables directly from the Joomla interface. Add forms for data entry and enable granular access control on sections of data and functionality. Visualize data on maps, charts, and more. We’ll build a small application as part of the presentation and you’ll see how easy it can be.

I was recently asked to present a Nomad PHP Lightning Talk. The meetings are online and are the largest of their kind. The presentation was recorded and will be placed on their site in the near future in case you missed it. 

Topic I presented:

Incorporating Custom PHP Code in Fabrik Website Applications
Fabrik is a custom application builder that works inside of Joomla! websites. The structure allows for non-coders to build basic applications and PHP developers to add custom code throughout to create more complex applications. We’ll take a quick look at the various areas where coders can add their PHP snippets or even write full plugins.

A big thank you to Nomad PHP for the opportunity to present a Lightning Talk!
