Joomla! 2.0 Architecture

A session at J and Beyond

  • Herman Peeren

Friday 6th May, 2011

11:15am to 12:15pm (AMT)

If we would start Joomla! from scratch now, with the knowledge we have acquired during the last 6 years, how would it be? What can we learn from Doctrine, Lithium, Nooku, Symphony, Drupal or other projects? What about Domain Driven Design, NoSql, data in the cloud, apps?

In "minor versions", 1.6, 1.7 etc., we extend what is allready there, adding features, changing carefully. But sometimes new requirements are so fundamental (the 1.6 ACL might be a good example) or circumstances have changed so much, that it is more efficient to start all over again. Then it is time for a "major version". In September 2010 I pleaded to do the development of major versions parallel to minor ones: www.hermanpeeren.nl/joomla/knitt.... On J and Beyond 2011 I want to present some intermediate results of that "concurrent development".

This is not about features, but about the architecture, under the hood. Anybody else with ideas about this: please contact me! This ambitious project is something that can only be done in a joint effort. All together we can fundamentally improve Joomla!. The next step; beyond 1.x.
