Quick questions Alexandru Lamba
We're doing great! A lot of stuff going on lately. In february a designer and a programmer joined in, and we are focusing now on new projects, such as Joomla! Templates and a revolutionary extension to manage these themes. There is a lot of work to do, but we're having a lot of fun doing it.
RS Joomla is providing lots of extensions for Joomla - is it hard to maintain them all?
The TODO list of our extensions is always full. However, having a lot of clients using them comes at a price. People always ask for new features and we try to satisfy them as quickly as possible. The good thing is that our products now have reached a level of maturity that cover the majority of the clients needs.
How did you feel about Joomla 1.6 from a developer perspective - was it hard to adjust the extensions for the 1.6 version?
We developed our extensions following the Joomla! MVC and it really helped us when making them 1.6 compatible. It took a month or so, but it wasn't that hard.
How come that you choose to develop for Joomla?
Back in 2007 I was creating websites using Mambo and Joomla! and I always had difficulties making them because of the lack of extensions of that time. So I started making the extensions that I needed and slowly started sharing them with the Joomla! community.
What will we see from RS Joomla during this year?
The next thing that you'll see is a nicer website and hopefully easier to navigate. We also started working on Joomla! Themes and hopefully in the next couple of months we'll release it.
The greatest thing will probably be the revolutionary extension that will let you manage these extensions which should really make it easier for users changing them.
We're also working on a new interface for our RSForm!Pro that I'm sure you will enjoy.
