Quick questions Barnaby Dixon
I am a PHP 5.3 Zend Certified Engineer and I have been writing code professionally for over 10 years. I now work almost exclusively for corporate clients in the UK, but I also develop code for systems like Joomla! in my spare time, and also take on additional freelance contracts when possible.
What is HTML 2 Articles?
HTML 2 Articles is a Joomla! component that I developed to take existing HTML pages and upload them directly to Joomla. During upload the HTML files are also very extensively processed to validate the HTML, transfer images, convert the encoding to UTF-8 and to optionally remove certain elements such as classes.
Why have you choose to develop for Joomla?
Joomla is used by several of my clients, and it was a natural progression from developing Joomla components for my clients, to developing components for the wider Joomla community. I find developing for Joomla is very rewarding; the community is fantastic
Do you have any thing in the "pipe"?
I am currently developing a new Joomla plugin called YouTube 2 Articles; when active this will automatically create a new article with the embedded YouTube video, description, keywords and title when a specific user uploads a new video on YouTube. I hope to have that released by the end of June!
