Yireo is not stopping with Joomla

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 2 Apr 2016

Our previous blogpost was an April Fools joke. While most people got the joke and while most people appreciated the joke as well, we still felt we needed a counter blog to rectify things: We are not stopping with Joomla. Not at all.

Yireo stops with Joomla ...... not

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 31 Mar 2016

We have given this a real long thought and hate to say this: We stop with Joomla. While we have enjoyed 10 years of Joomla together, we are feeling the urge to make this business decision. With this blog, we will share you some of our insights (and critical notes) on why we are making this drastic change. [Note this is an April Fools joke, it's not real]

Yireo site runs HTTP/2 and PHP 7

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 21 Mar 2016

It is always good to have a fast site, and because we're aiming also at performance tuning with Yireo, having top-notch technology with our own Yireo site is a must. Currently we have switched to PHP 7 and HTTP 2, and we are happy to share some of its details.

Running Magento on PHP 7

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 17 Mar 2016

PHP 7 was released end of last year, and since it speeds up PHP execution so much, we can only recommend people to migrate their sites to PHP 7. With Magento 2, PHP 7 is supported out of the box. With Magento 1, this is more cumbersome. Let's summarize some of the aspects.

Object callisthenics for Magento

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 7 Mar 2016

Coding concepts like DRY and SOLID are well known across Magento developers. I was a bit surprised to hear that few Magento programmers know about Object callisthenics, so here is a small write-up on how this practice might improve Magento coding.

Naming Magento observer methods

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 6 Mar 2016

Within Magento 1 you can use observers to listen to events triggered elsewhere, and thus extend Magento in a clean way. On twitter, @tim_bezhashvyly mentioned that observer methods should be named a certain way. So let's see where this brings us.

Prevent search engines from indexing Magento test sites

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 2 Mar 2016

While we recommend you develop Magento sites in such a way that the development site is not publicly accessible, it is sometimes needed to connect a Magento testing site to the web right away. Here are some tricks to make sure search engines like Google Search do not start indexing this test site.

Do more with PHP!

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 2 Mar 2016

With Yireo, we build a lot of extensions on top of Magento and Joomla, and naturally all are written with PHP. But the PHP code we write now is not the same as the code of last year: Our coding improves and the code itself evolves. You can make that happen for yourself as well. Here are some ins and outs.

Some Magento 2 whitepapers

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 29 Feb 2016

For the Magento 2 Seminar we organized last January (and will still be organized again in October this year), we setup a few whitepapers to give a solid introduction to Magento 2 topics like development and code migration. The whitepapers were will received - they provide more tips and tricks than an average sales flyer - so therefore we love to share this with you too.
