Adding features or making changes to a web site or app can cause anxiety. What if you break something and cause a bug? This week at the GeeUp conference in Leiden, EllisLab engineer Kevin Cupp will demistify automated testing. He will show you how you can know right away if your new changes are really working, increasing trust and stability of your code base.
The benefits of automated testing go beyond a programmer’s code. Kevin will also share some tips for automating tests that can help
In its fourth year, Peers Conference has hit its stride, and we are happy to be sponsoring once again. Join us April 13–15 in St. Petersburg, Florida for one of the more unique tech conferences around.
Instead of the same old talks you’ve heard before, Peers is more of an opportunity to learn from your industry equals. People in the trenches just like you. Nearly half of the presenters are #womenintech. Its organizers understand that our industry is stronger when we help each other.
You’ve been wanting to upgrade to ExpressionEngine 3, but you’re faced with:
- your own site, untouched in years
- a client looking for a refresh
- a site you’ve inherited from another developer
- an ailing site you’ve been asked to fix
- a site acquired by purchase or merger
Where do you start? What do you do with the PHP someone left in the templates? What about third-party abandonware, or the bespoke add-ons that no one remembers who wrote?

Ho ho ho! I got so many letters from you asking for a maintenance release of ExpressionEngine 2.10 and since you’ve been good little boys and girls I asked the fine folks at EllisLab to make your Christmas wish come true! I’m told this maintenance release fixes a number of bugs, changes the password maximum length to 72 characters, improves New Relic transaction reporting, and added a notification to the File fieldtype when its file does not exist. There is a full changelog available.
The ExpressionEngine Forums were once a bright point and central hub for the community. Known for being active, friendly, professional, and accessible to all. It’s no secret that they no longer have that reputation, and it’s our fault. When we changed our support model to scale and provide better support for our growing community, we (EllisLab) stopped participating in our own forums. The community followed our lead and abandoned the forums and fractured. Some set roots in Twitter, some in
We had a great time at the ExpressionEngine Conference in San Antonio last week. The conference did live-switch HD recording of the presentations and was able to have the videos available within hours. You can see all the other talks and a full-speaker Q&A panel on the ExpressionEngine Conference web site for just $99. This is a great value for those who couldn’t travel for the one-day event, especially our friends outside of North America. We are lobbying for an east coast location next
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
We want to hear from you more regularly, and give a voice and platform to those who may not engage via public channels, or are typically just too busy to do so. So we are spinning up an ExpressionEngine Focus Group Program. By opting in to this program, you will receive opportunities to participate in surveys, live chats, gain access to previews, and more!
What are you waiting for? Join today!
