Gantry 5 Will Be Presented at J and Beyond 2015


From May 29-31, the J and Beyond (JAB) 2015 conference is taking place in Prague, Czech Republic. Gantry 5 will be presented by RocketTheme’s own Matias Griese during the first day of the three-day conference.

Gantry 5 is a ground-up rewrite of the popular and powerful Gantry framework. Focusing on speed, flexibility, and extensibility, Gantry 5 offers the features you need to build sites for the future.

In his talk titled, Gantry 5: A New Dawn for Theming, Matias Griese will detail the philosophy and technologies behind Gantry 5, and how it can make the development process faster and more agile. Attendees will learn how simple drag-n-drop interfaces can give non-technical users the ability to easily control and customize sites.

The session will detail the philosophy behind the project and offer insight into how to get the most out the framework in Joomla, and beyond.

"Gantry 5 has been the most inspiring PHP project I've ever been a part of," said Griese. "There are an abundance of concepts introduced in Gantry 5 that have never been done before. It is a groundbreaking framework in many ways."

Matias is one of the lead developers of RocketTheme and Gantry 5. He has been a Joomla extension developer since 2008, occasionally contributing to Joomla itself including the new Joomla installer classes for Joomla 3.4, together with Michael Babker.
