Web Summer Camp 2016 Bringing Design, eZ Publish, and PHP Together

Web Summer Camp 2016

Early this year, I decided to take a very long break from blogging about content management systems. At the time of my announcement, I hinted that you might hear from me time to time as I still want to be an advocate for people and companies I believe do "good work" in the CMS industry.

With a history of supporting past eZ Publish conferences in Croatia, it shouldn't be a surprise to you that I've come out of semi-retirement to promote Web Summer Camp 2016. This year's event is being held in beautiful Rovinj, Croatia from August 31st through September 3rd.

Web Summer Camp 2016 continues to build on past efforts of hosting a conference which covers both PHP and eZ Publish while adding Design as a new topic this year. Those attending the conference will be able to dive into PHP and Symfony at our PHP topic, learn more about eZ Publish and eZ Platform at our eZ Publish topic, and learn about web design, UX, content, project management, and information architecture in the Design topic.

The Federation Against Software Theft (FAST) and long-term industry member V.i. Labs, have launched a campaign aimed at educating software providers about individuals and businesses who unintentionally use software that is not licensed correctly. The campaign dispels long held beliefs that have resonated within the industry for decades – that all pirates are individuals who deliberately copy and use software with no regard to intellectual property. Not so.

Working together, FAST and V.i. Labs aim to raise awareness of the realities of unpaid licenses and accidental, but material, infringement. Legally inclined businesses and end users who are unaware that they are using unlicensed software represent a significant business opportunity for software providers.

Creating The Right Headspace: Why Headless CMS's Are Wrong

Fancy dress headless

The idea of a “headless CMS” is gaining momentum lately.  If you’ve not heard of it, the concept is that of a decoupled CMS in the sense that content storage and management is handled entirely separately from the presentation.

The idea, which is truly a re-hash of a debate that also occurred a decade ago – is that today’s optimal content management system isn’t one that also handles the display of the look and feel of the content it manages. It simply manages the raw, structured content in a unified repository. It then makes the content available as a “service” through an API and it is up to the developer to create and develop the presentation layer; be it in a web site, web app, mobile app etc…  And, now, there are some that are passionately arguing for this model to be the new standard.

This is wrong.

Now, it may be that some of the people weren’t around when we debated the agility, flexibility and ultimate scalability of this model ten years ago. But, the argument remain the same.
