Posted by Paul Rogers on 18 April 2012

Paul Rogers works as a Senior Online Marketing Strategist for GPMD, a London-based web agency who are one of two UK SilverStripe partners. GPMD also organise and run the UK SilverStripe meetup event.

Posted by Sara Tušar on 11 April 2012

Sara Tušar Suhadolc is the winner of the SS3 default theme contest. Sara works as a web-designer/front-end developer at Slovenian digital agency Innovatif. We asked her to share the story of how her theme Simple came to life.

Over a year ago, we decided to ditch our own CMS and switch to SilverStripe. Since then, we’ve published numerous websites and learned a ton along the way. When we heard about the contest we saw it as a superb opportunity to finally give something back to the community. And so it begun..

SCSS, Compass and SilverStripe 3.0

Posted by Will Rossiter on 27 March 2012

Will is a senior developer at DNA Design, Wellington, New Zealand. He has been a contributor to SilverStripe since 2007, maintains several modules and is a well known face around the IRC and Forums as willr.

Over one year ago now, a group of us got together and started thinking about how we wanted to implement Felipe's awesome new UI for SS3.0, and how should SilverStripe go about turning the pretty pixels into reality. The design itself was a product of some fresh thinking from the UX front, so it felt right that we take the same care in designing the front-end architecture.

Upgrading to SilverStripe 3.0

Posted by Simon Welsh on 22 March 2012

Simon is a developer at PocketRent, a SaaS using SilverStripe. I'm currently working towards completing my Honours degree in Computer Science and Maths. I'm simon_w on both Twitter and the #silverstripe IRC channel.

Posted by Josette Rigsby on 19 March 2012

Guest blogger Josette Rigsby has over 15 years experience in leading technology teams and delivering solutions. She has a special interest in enterprise architecture and emerging technology. Josette attended the SXSW in Austin last week and is here to give us the low down.

South by Southwest Interactive (SxSWi), the annual pilgrimage of thousands upon thousands of techies to Austin, TX to learn, pitch start-ups, commune with their peers and (of course) party, has concluded. This year’s conference was held March 9 to Match 13. SxSWi attracted more than 20,000 attendees and featured over 1,000 panels. Each day every conference room, event hall and corridor was filled with discussions of the latest trends and what might be coming next. Given the gadget loving audience, it shouldn’t be too shocking that mobile technology was one of the most common themes in many of these conversations.
