For the last few months, I’ve been doing a substantial amount of front-end work on SDL’s Media Manager tool. While you can find a pretty decent amount of information on Tridion via blogs and stack exchange, you won’t find much on Media Manager. Let’s start by introducing outlets.
So, not too long ago I had the opportunity to sit down with Miguel Miguelez and Nuno Linhares, both from SDL. Over the course of one or several beers, we discussed the Frenchness of the French, super awesome tattoo ideas, and content injection. And we came up with an idea which I’d like to share.
In the last year or so, “Responsive Design” has become quite the buzzword. It’s not just industry jargon or a little article on A List Apart anymore. Project managers, business analysts, salesmen and marketing executives are tossing around the term “Responsive Design”. Heck, a year ago I was explaining the concept to an executive, and
Media Manager is by far one of the cooler products that SDL could offer. It appeals to my inner geek. It offers rich asset management over a content distribution network and it does codec conversion. It’s an HTML5 developer’s dream. I don’t claim nearly the experience around Media Manager that I would Tridion, but I
I’ve been working on a new Tridion implementation for a client, and for the last few days all I’ve been doing is making schemas. No, not content schemas. Embeddable schemas. Metadata schemas. Schemas that aren’t even necessarily specific to the client. Just things that are necessary to make bigger, more complex schemas. And then today
Recently I was given a web project— but not just any type of web project. The kind we hate most. The one that’s best-labeled a “future awful idea”. The one developers will try to kill —with fire. The kind of project with the same sad story as that Pokemon tattoo on your cousin’s lower back. You
I’ve been working for the last month or two on some super cool mobile templates for a client. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, we’ve pulled out all of the awesome for this. If Tridion were a person, it would be peeing its kilt with excitement every day — even though it definitely isn’t wearing
So, you’re hooked on the idea of using a CSS preprocessor, and you’re thinking of even managing your files in Tridion. Not a bad idea, right? But uploading those binaries into a multimedia schema isn’t as easy as it looks. So what’s a guy to do?
In a previous post that I wrote, I talked about living the web developer’s fantasy of being told, “be as cutting edge as you want”, and how Joe Shirley (a fellow Tahzooligan) and I decided to use all the nice things we could 1. Before I get in to how we used a CSS preprocessor
Not too long ago, I was put on a new project at Tahzoo and I got to hear what many developers in the community (and even at Tahzoo) can only fantasize about: “Be as cutting edge as you want.”. A coworker, Joe Shirley, and I, were given the freedom to use whatever tools, techniques, and
