Keynote for Joomla! and Beyond. I doubt the slides make much sense but they do have some citations at the end. Mostly this talk is about community, karma, and responsibility.

Update: now with video!

Create a Dashboard Using Guzzle


Net Magazine, January 2014

A hands-on tutorial for netmag, this was a fun project to build a dashboard giving insights to a project by using Guzzle to pull data from GitHub's API and display it. It's a walk through of how to create something like this using guzzle, starting with HTML5 Boilerplate to give a nice, clean look, then putting the flash on those bones with data from github.

It's in Issue 251, March 2014 - you can get back issues here: http://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/design/net-magazine-back-issues/net-march-14-issue-251/
