Where did January go?

Where did 2009 go?

Our last blog post was in December?

Wow, time is flying by. The good news is we’ve been quite busy here at LightCube. The bad news is we are breaking the rule of blogging regularly (sorry).

Looking back, the past two years has brought its challenges and lessons. But we are now looking forward and gearing up for what’s in store. Speaking of which, where is what we’ve been up to:

Tienda! – Who says the internet doesn’t need another eCommerce tool? If you check with the Joomla community you’ll quickly see there is a massive need. We’ve been working with Dioscouri to bring the first native eCommerce application to Joomla! The really exciting news is that Tienda v0.2.0 (Alpha) is available.

MongoDB – For a SQL Grease Monkey like myself this is a huge redirection. Don’t worry, we’re not abandoning our traditional LAMP stack just yet. It’s not so much about leaving MySQL as much as it is about being liberated to use something else. We’re already working on a few pet projects to use MongoDB for our core ACL and automatic MediaRSS feed generating.

WebEDI – What is EDI you ask? It’s a LONG story. But I can tell you this much,  it has been around before the internet and isn’t going away anytime soon. We are helping to enhance the EDI back office systems of companies that are warming up to web services and XML.

I did say a quick summary didn’t I? Although tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone this year is going to be a busy one. We’ll keep you posted (hopefully in increments shorter than a month).
