This certainly falls under "minor update", but we recently updated the Sitemason PHP Boilerplate Template to use html5boilerplate.com version 4, along with a couple other small improvements. Go get it!
Today we're launching a new series for developers to regularly offer tips and tricks for developing in the Sitemason environment. Our first tip is to use custom queries for testing code on a live site.
One thing that is very different for developers working on the Sitemason platform for the first time is developing in a live production environment. Read more to learn about a great way to easily switch between test and production code.
Update: My BarCamp session slides and notes are available at www.sitemason.com/barcamp
For the sixth consecutive year, Nashville is hosting BarCamp, the defining "un-conference" for our technology community. This year, I have the distinct pleasure of presenting "Adventures In Building Our Dream Interface". Go get signed up for the free day of fun and learning and checkout my session. Details and more about BarCamp after the break!
Continuing our interface teaser, today we wanted to show off how Actions will work in the new interface. Sitemason defines Actions as any change that modifies the list. Here's a brief video showing off Adding a Page, Reordering the list, editing a Page, Duplicating a Page, and finally deleting that duplicate. Enjoy!
Nashville is a pretty neat place. It's notable of course for its music, publishing, and healthcare industries. However Nashville has been making quite a name for itself as a technology town. Recently named separately as one of the best cities for startups, tech jobs, and as a city of the future, Nashville's star is certainly rising.
A tech town is only as good as it's companies, of course. And today we want to highlight a handful of those that glowingly represent our city and are models and inspirations to us here at Sitemason. Read more...
Anyone who's moseyed through downtown Nashville the past couple Thursday evenings knows just how successful Live On the Green has become. The free concert series has grown to be a major attraction in town. With such a large production, a lot of people (fans, bands, the mayors office, sponsors, etc.) depend on the website being an effective communication tool. The last thing promotors need to worry about is their website performance. Learn how Sitemason works with clients and partners and check out the remaining schedule!
These things just keep getting better and better. Thank you to all our partners and clients for a pretty phenomenal second quarter. We think the results speak for themselves...
Signal Hill's illustrious Kevin Kennedy (of Sitemason 6 interface design fame) was kind enough to write up a post on his thoughts and experiences working with Sitemason. It's a fantastic read! Check it out here or on Signal Hill's blog.
It'd be all buzzz! Bad jokes aside, that's where we begin today's post, tackling some web buzzwords. Specifically, Progressive Enhancement and Responsive Design. We'll look at the meaning of these concepts and how we're employing them in the new interface.
Although only a shadow of its future self, today we wanted to tease the new interface and show off our progress of SM6 up to this point. There's still a long way to go, but our baby is taking shape. I mean, dang, just look at that responsiveness!
