One year has past since we started JoomlaSverige! During this time we have published over 100 translations. We have interviewed several people, from many different parts of the world, that develops for Joomla.
We have came far during this first year and we hope to keep the pace during year two. During this year we will continue to publish translations, publish guides and more interviews. But in order to step up, we need you;
- Who are willing to write; articles, news, reviews of extensions, guides etc.
- Regular user, who have made a translation - publish your translation at JoomlaSverige. If you still haven't made a translation? At JED there are over 9000 extensions, just start, it's not harder then that :)
Which extensions has been published? See them below.
In order to celebrate our first year we have been in contact with several developers and enterprises, that have participate with unique discount codes for their products. Click at "number 1" to see the codes.
Thank you all for your support!

Hi Rick, can you tell us about the recently released extension Sobipro Radius Search Application?
Hi Kristian, the Radius Search Application is a native SobiPro application (plugin). And allows you to add a field into the native SobiPro search form to be able to add both centerpoint and radius distance criteria to the SobiPro search function. It works in conjunction with and is entirely integrated with that form. You can search just by radius distance or with any combination of native SobiPro search criteria. The search result display the entries that are into the given radius, and there is an option to display the distance from center point on each vcard in the search result listing and the vcard entries can be optionally sorted by distance. This application is compatible with : Geocode Factory + Map Search and the map module of SobiPro. But it work also as standalone product with SobiPro. Of course your need to have each SobiPro entry geocoded, you can use the Geocode Factory, or the SP-geo-field app.
How come that you choose to develop this extension for SobiPro?
As you know we provide a mapping component for joomla named Geocode Factory. For this component we already have a plugin (SobiPro map search) that display, search result of SobiPro into a Geocode Factory map module. And on this map, the user can use the Geocode Factory Radius feature (search by entering a location or pick a point) to afine the result. But some users has asked us to improve the process, to have only one step. Then we have taken the descision to create a dedicated application for SobiPro. Our Radius Search Application for SobiPro is fully integrated to the SobiPro search form and allow the user to find results into a given radius from the SobiPro directory in one unique operation. Of course the Radius search is compatible with Geocode Factory maps. And another great concept is that we do not install any extra location-coordinates database (for people that have used the Sobi2 Radius search, it's a real improvement). There is also an option to use the user's real position (usefull for iPhone, and Android). And by the way we were glad, because we was the first third party developer of an SobiPro application.
A working demo can be found here : Sobipro Radius Search demo site.
Hi Michael, tell us about yourself.
Hi, thank you so much for the Quick Questions interview. It's very exciting to be interviewed by you and I feel privileged for the opportunity. I hope to visit Scandinavia someday, as I have relatives in Norway and feel a real kinship to the people and culture in your part of the world.
I am 38 and married with 4 children. We live in beautiful rural Northern California. There are a lot of parks and wilderness areas in my home town, which offer ample opportunity to go adventuring in the great outdoors. We all love it.
When I am not busy herding my children around, I like to do a bit of programming. I got my start as a graphic designer, then moved into programming, while working for an educational software company. I was fortunate enough to be able to leave my job and start a freelance career as a web developer. I spend the majority of my professional life building websites, coding extensions and helping people who are in need of technical support. It is satisfying work to be able to help others and empower people with the extensions that I create. I feel very privileged and blessed to be doing something that I enjoy so much.
Hi Sigrid can you tell us about your self?
I live in a small German village near Frankfurt. I studied electrotechnics before I started to work as a software engineer for industrial products. Since 2009, I work together with my husband Radek full time for the Sobi projects. My programming experiences started with the programming languages Pascal and C, followed by C++ which is a good basis for developing software for Joomla!. Especially since the well known to me object oriented developing techniques find their way into PHP. I enjoy the outdoors in my leisure time, including spending time working in the garden. I also enjoy taking photos, but it seems I don't have as much time for photography lately.
