  • Extension recommendations

    by Sadiq Datoo

    At the last count, there were over 8000 extensions available in the Joomla! Extensions Directory. Some of these extensions can fulfill specific tasks (such as form creation and shopping carts), whilst others can enhance your entire Joomla! experience.

    Sadiq Datoo of LNMO.co.uk has been creating Joomla! web sites for many years. He will share which Joomla! extensions you should be using on your web sites, which ones to steer clear from and how to tell the difference.

    In addition, Sadiq will be available to discuss some tried and tested extensions for particular tasks and provide a space for delegates to discuss their 'must have' Joomla! extensions.

  • IE9 and HTML 5 - The story so far

    by Martin Beeby

    There is no getting around the fact that, due to an intriguing history, when it comes to Web standards IE's name is mud with many web developers. The
    legacy of IE6, leading edge in its day, still lingers nearly 10 years after its release and the nightmare of browser incompatibilities and CSS hacks still has web developers waking in cold sweats.

    The good news is that IE6 usage is down to 3.5% in the UK and the better news is that over the past few years Microsoft has made a concerted effort to
    make that challenging history, well, history, and the outcome is IE9. The new browser illustrates Microsoft's focus on standards and speed and has resulted in a browser that has surprised even our fiercest critics. It's been a long journey and in this talk.

    Martin Beeby will discuss how the community helped us build our best Internet Explorer yet and the amazing things that it's capable of and what changes you might need to make to your sites to support it. We'll also take a look into the future of IE and Microsoft
    plan to maintain the momentum.

    Intended Audience:

    Designers and Developers

    Questions answered by this session:

    Why is HTML5 important?
    What sorts of things is IE9 capable of?
    What is IE9 not capable of?
    What changes will I need to make to my site to support IE9?
