Techjoomla is a proud sponsor for the global Joomla Pizza, bugs and fun event

Techjoomla is proud to be a sponsor for the global Joomla Pizza, Bugs and Fun event to be conducted on 19th October 2019. We have been associated with the Pizza, Bugs and Fun event for more than 8 years. We had blogged about the event in 2014, 2013 and 2011

This year’s global Joomla Pizza, bugs and fun event holds special significance. Joomla 4.0 is on the horizon and with many bugs and improvements still untested, there is a lot of work still pending before they can be incorporated into the Joomla! core. All the new features that are included in Joomla are to be tested before they become a part of the official release. Hence, any contribution, whether it is coding, testing or documentation from the Joomla community is most welcome. 

Sponsors play a vital role in making the event a huge success and we are happy to sponsor this event. Apart from being a sponsor, the event will be conducted at the Techjoomla and Tekdi office, we will post more updates about it on our social media handles.

TJ Queue - A message queue for Joomla

TJ-Queue-is-here

As we go on in our pursuit to use Joomla in never-seen-before use cases a few interesting problems came forth.

  • A web-hooks implementation: Similar to how plugins can declare triggers they want to listen to, webhooks allow external applications to register URLs that can receive a JSON payload when an action happens in an application. Since there could be multiple webhooks, each webhook call is queued as a message and happens asynchronously.
  • In Shika: Recalculating user progress in the background. When a new lesson is added to a course, Shika recalculates each enrolled user’s progress to take into account the newly added lesson. When there are a lot of lessons and a large number of users enrolled in the course, this recalculation cannot happen in real time. In this case, a recalculation job does this in the background once the lesson is saved.
