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..

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.

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.

When Borland released Delphi in 1995, they were among the first to adapt the new paradigm of Rapid Application Development (RAD). I was still an apprentice in my second year, but I recall that the general opinion was that - with the given productivity boost and the visual programming style - very soon programmers would be obsolete. They were all wrong. So wrong.
