Feedback from previous show

From Tony - 
“Thanks to everyone who mentioned the low sound level on this show. We have found the problem. No excuses - It was me... Sorry!
We will ensure the levels are higher next time. I promise or I will have to write out "Check the sound levels" a thousand times.” 
From Nicolas Pastorino
I liked this one a lot too, keep-up !
We start discerning clear characters since you guys resumed eZ Future, specially since Ole Morten is joining regularly, you should keep it like this, a sort of theatersports kinda thing 
A few replies :

  • The first Community Project build should arrive soon, it is intensively being worked on at the moment,
  • The new feature regarding User Registration is that it now is an operation, in the eZ Publish sense of it : one can plug-in workflow events before and/or after user registration, opening for non-hackish implementation of business logic. Long-awaited feature, extremely useful !
  • eZ Market : lots of extensions coming-up, while only CJW Newsletter & Varnish at the time of writing. This eZ Market is indeed a fantastic opportunity for Partners (both Business and Community) to commercialize their work, their preferred extension, and make money out of it. A very nice business model.
  • About sun in London : i must confess last time i swinged by it WAS actually sunny. All Londonians were extensively bragging about this, which set me thinking...
  • BUT, the eZ Conference will be flooded with sun, this is part of the plan.

@everyone : you should really listen to this podcast. I learned that i was wanted, hugged and alive. And there is a ransom.
Cheers !
