We’ve all been there: a client or customer calls to say something has disappeared, you delete one file too many, or a hard drive has simply crashed. You either felt devastated, or you were able to swoop in and save the day because you have a backup plan.
Everyone should have a backup plan for not only their personal computers, but also their websites. Websites can lose data due to hacking, server crashes, or human error. Plan for the worst and be able to get back online in a jiffy without
A few months ago, the great folks who run the ExpressionEngine Conference asked us if we would participate in a special one-day event focusing on ExpressionEngine 3.0. We were more than happy to, and with the venue they are providing along the River Walk in San Antonio, how could we say no?
Here are the talks our team has planned:
Keynote Address: It took foundational changes to both EllisLab and ExpressionEngine to get to version 3.0. I’ll share what this new release brings and where
ExpressionEngine veteran and personality behind devot:ee Ryan Masuga has released a new ExpressionEngine book: The Guide to ExpressionEngine Development. This book is unique from most other ExpressionEngine-related education in that it focuses on the project environment, development practices specific to ExpressionEngine, security, and other processes.
I was able to provide a tech review of the book and was really impressed, which led to me asking Ryan if I could write a foreword, which I’ve
You are building a site locally and you’d like to quickly check your work on your iPad, iPhone, another computer, or maybe a client’s laptop. You could pay for a dynamic DNS service, setup a DNS server on your local network, or setup a proxy server perhaps. But there’s an easier way.
How to do it
I have my Apache VirtualHost and
We are giving away a ticket to this year’s MinneWebCon in Minneapolis, Minnesota on April 13–14. MinneWebCon focuses on grassroots knowledge-sharing. If that doesn’t sound like the ExpressionEngine community, I don’t know what does! MinneWebCon attracts many people who work in public and non-profit sectors, but has something for everybody. It was a no brainer for us to sponsor.

We’re going to show how you and your clients can save thousands of dollars a year by paying more for hosting. No typo.
While helping our customers, we log in to many sites. Sometimes, the control panel is slow. To see why it’s taking so long, my first stop used to be Extensions. Now it’s a quick trip to whoishostingthis.com.
Normally, the ExpressionEngine control panel is fast. Zippy even. There aren’t many pages in the control panel that should have an execution time of more than a second.
Are you a WordPress, Joomla, Textpattern, or Drupal user in the Albuequerque area who has been curious about ExpressionEngine? Or just new to ExpressionEngine and want to see what it’s capable of? Mark March 4, 2015 on your calendar and head to the ABQ Web Geeks presentation, “ExpressionEngine—A Practical Introduction.”
Seven year ExpressionEngine expert Caroline C. Blaker of Petroglyph Creative will give a live tour of ExpressionEngine and its ecosystem. She will not only explain what you

Some businesses are started after copious amounts of market research, product viability studies, and cost/benefit analysis.
Train-ee was born out of a love for ExpressionEngine and a desire to help others learn it.
In 2006 I was active in the EE forums and someone posted “I just wish there was a series of step by step tutorials on how to use EE”. I figured I could do that. I began a rough once-a-week schedule and a few months

Mijingo was founded on ExpressionEngine. It’s the first topic I taught and the CMS that has powered Mijingo.com from the beginning.
Since publishing my first ExpressionEngine video course in 2008, I’ve been floored by how many people have told me that the Mijingo EE course was an important part of their getting started with ExpressionEngine. For some it even helped put them on a path to a different career.

This post is from a featured guest, Jae Barclay, who runs [Creat-ee.com]
As someone who’s been involved in both web design & development as well as teaching and training for the past 17 years, running [Creat-ee.com] was a natural extension of our business ([www.ejaedesign.com]).
When we first started working with EE back in 2007, there were no live online trainings available. I felt there was a need there and thus [Creat-ee.com] was born in 2010 with five distinct services.
