JGive nEXT - revamped UX, Activity stream and more!

UX redesign is going to be a major focus for upcoming major releases of Techjoomla products. JGive will be one of the first to get these improvements. As part of this exercise we are taking a fresh look at how customers use the product and are letting this drive the design and new features.

We hope this new approach will take our products to a new level. Here’s a quick look at the new designs and related features. It would be great if you guys can give us your comments on the same.

The roll out of this new UI/UX and related features will happen in the next few version of the jGive 2x series. Note that not all improvements will come in a single release and will be spread out over multiple ones.

Read on to get the full scoop !

Examples are Educational Qualification, Previous Employment History etc.

Joomla too supported the add more fields natively, by use of the repeatable element. However it had a few limitations

Joomla Day Bangalore 2016 a smashing success !

Joomla Day Bangalore 2016 a smashing success !

It gives us immense pleasure to report that Joomla Day Bangalore has been received really well by the community there. Techjoomla was a sponsor at the Event and Parth Lawate our CEO presented the opening Keynote on ‘The Spirit of Open Source. Here is a blog from him with updates from the Event. 

JUG Bangalore was one of the Joomla user groups that was initiated as part of the outreach campaign before the Joomla World conference that happened there in November 2015 and I was lucky to have helped initiate the same with Puneet Kala & Saurabh Shah early last year. 

I remember the kick off meeting where it was the 3 of us who attended the meeting ! Today their meetup group is 450+ people and the core group meets regularly. The speed with which they have grown & matured in the last 9 months is really amazing. If you are in Bangalore and want to be part of this awesome group, here is their Facebook page & Official User group page.
