JED Reviews from the developers perspective
Love it or hate is, the Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED) is the single, must go to, area for integrators and web builders looking to extend the capabilities of their websites. For developers the scoring and review section can become an area of frustration and angst. This session will attempt to put it all into some perspective and in particular guide the developer through the best practice for building a strong reputation on the JED, often in the face of seemingly impossible users. Where reputations can be gained or lost within a few keystrokes, this should be an informative session for those relying on the JED.
Hugh Douglas-Smith is the JED review manager and runs a development company (WebAppz) who specialise in creating websites which provide functionality or embed business processes. Hugh has a background in programming as well as sales and marketing and has worked in senior roles across a number of leading software companies.
