Quick questions Marco Barbosa

Hi Marco, tell us about yourself!

Marco is my name and I come from Brazil. I am a passionate web developer and have worked with Joomla for a few years.

You have designed something really beautiful - Minima, can you tell us what Minima is?

Minima is an admin template built on open source that you can use with Joomla! 1.6. I have a vision of how an admin template would look like and I started experimenting with it. The idea is that an admin template must be "minimalist" and it should be very easy to do things. A little innovation is also welcome. Back-ends should not be boring!

It appears that you have lots of things going on, you are also involved in Molajo - what is Molajo?

Molajo is an application built on top of the Joomla framework. We want to give a strong Joomla foundation that you can build on. You could say molajo is a "distro" but without the Joomla CMS (framework only). It comes with a few additions and a much "lighter" Joomla. Many fixes and improvements are also there (as Minima!).

What plans do you have for this year?

Right now I am very impressed with my job. I work at Fantasy Interactive as a developer and we have many exciting projects. Has been there for 2 months now (

I have plans for Molajo too. New things I want to build: a completely new installation process, a component builder guide and a molajo package builders so you can choose what you want to have in your molajo package.

Molajo and minima are very exciting projects that I like to spend some of my free time (when I have it). I also want to take it easy the next months and hope that Sweden will be warmer soon (summer)!
