Somewhere along the way, I admittedly lost sight of TYPO3. It's not that I ever thought TYPO3 wasn't a good content management system but it never seemed like there was ever a lot of exciting things to write about TYPO3. When a CMS has a history that dates all the way back to the late 1990', well it's difficult to shake it off as as anything but a legacy application. So in my slumber I failed to notice that there was a new CMS on the radar, TYPO3 Neos.
With the explosion of mobile apps, business users are putting more pressure on developers and designers to deliver a large number of mobile applications with stunning and sleek user experiences.
London’s digital economy is failing to be supported with fit-for-task broadband infrastructure, according to an index published today, ranking European capital cities by broadband speeds.
The index was developed to give insight into London’s historical and current broadband speeds and investigate how it compared to other European capital cities. Hyperoptic, the UK’s leading Fibre-to-the-Home provider, compiled the index, sourcing the data from Ookla’s speedtest.net, the global standard in Internet connection testing.
The figures revealed that London’s broadband speeds are failing to support its burgeoning digital economy. Currently the city only ranks 26 out of 33 for its broadband speeds, with an average download broadband speed of 26.3Mbps, more than 10Mbps slower than the European average of 36.8Mbps. The top five European capitals broadband speeds are currently all two times faster than London. Bucharest tops the table – its citizens enjoy an average of 81.2Mbps.

Big data is essential in helping recruiters assess candidates quantitatively, and find those candidates who can thrive in any environment – and make smarter decisions about who will be a good fit. So what does “big data” mean when it comes to recruiting?
Over the years, I've talked about building a range of simple websites for personal use to implementing very complicated proprietary and open source enterprise content management systems. What I haven't talked about is the cost of building and maintaining those websites. Honestly, I've been too embarrassed for how little I spend and too stunned by the price tag for what the big companies pay for their websites. Who Is Hosting This? sent us a graphicthat we thought represented the typical costs small to medium size businesses can expect when building and hosting their new websites. So good was the infographic that we decided to post it here.
Much of the statistics came from Which Web Design Company. WWDC maintains a database of over 7000 web design agencies world-wide, and provided them with the average starting cost statistics for web development used in the graphic below. Whatever your costs and whatever you decide, assuming you're working with reputable companies, the bottom line is that you get what you pay for. That's not a threat, but just a reality of the market.
For the first time in 15 years, my family doesn't have a website to call their own. In January 2000, I registered the domain Bryansplace.com. This was the first website I ever built outside of work and it became a sandbox for me to express my interests as well as a way to seek personal growth. From handwritten HTML pages into Frontpage to a number of CMSs, the software and content at Bryansplace evolved as my life evolved.
Bryansplace.com was the website where my girlfriend and I announced our marriage to the world. As a married couple, we eventually publicly announced the birth of our son via the site. This domain was the site where I talked about camping, computers, and my latest beer recipes. It wasn't all about me either. My wife showcased her photography for the first time online via our family website. This was also the website my son learned how to navigate the Drupal content management system and talk about his gaming skills. Bryansplace.com was synonymous with "family news". Despite how much I valued the domain, last week I unceremoniously killed the website.

TYPO3 has announced the discontinuation of TYPO3 CMS 4.7 and TYPO3 CMS 6.1. Both versions reached their end of life in in October 2014. Their latest versions are 4.7.20 and 6.1.12 which were released two weeks ago mark the last ones in these branches.
TYPO3 is encouraging its users to upgrade to the latest LTS version TYPO3 CMS 6.2, which they believe serves as the best basis for existing and new sites running with TYPO3 CMS. Only recently has TYPO3 updated their release cycle process which also gives us a glimpse of what to expect with TYPO3 CMS 7 and beyond.
