Today I`ve started working on my jQuery Updater for WordPress plugin.
Step 1: moving to GitHub
First step was linking Subversion and Git, which was a hell
Step 2: decide workflow
The second step is deciding the workflow: tools and rules. I decided to skip Grunt and Vagrant for now, since the code isn`t going to be rocket science.
I use phpDoc for documenting the PHP code and GitHub as project management (issues, milestones).
This setup will do fine for now!
Step 3: project management
Making a roadmap, with issues, features and prioritising all that I want before I start working and losing grip on the project.
Step 4: work
Starting with cleaning up code followed by creating space for new features. Leaving the hardest bits for the last. Although this isn`t ideal it makes future development a whole lot easier.

I will be reviewing the “Joomla! 1.5 Templates Cookbook” by Richard Carter, published by Packt Publishing. This book is about modifying Joomla! 1.5 Templates.
Packt Publishing asked me to review this book since it’s in my line of expertise.
A little about me:
I’ve been playing with Joomla! for more than three years now. I currently own no sites which run on Joomla! but I don’t see a reason why I shouldn’t be using it for one of my sites.

The Joomla! 1.5 Templates Cookbook is one of Packt Publishing’s cookbook series meaning it contains loads of recipes. Each recipe is a small articles/paragraphs with an idea and how to work it out. Just like a regular cookbook.
As the title reveals this book is about Joomla! 1.5 templates. A template is the design which displays the Joomla! site. Without a template no content is displayed, you will only see blank pages.
This book can also be used for the future Joomla! 1.6, which is currently in beta status.
