    Opinions ExpressionEngine Expert

    When ExpressionEngine was sold to PacketTide by EllisLab, we were a bit worried about the future of this content management system.

    ExpressionEngine is often called EECMS. It's open source and compatible with many servers, included Mac servers. It's based on PHP and MYSQL and it's compatible, optimized for the latest versions. Version 6 is available since January 2021 and we are just delighted by it. The user interface and the features are great. It's a pleasure to use it. 

    It's the most powerful, secure and easy to use CMS in the market. Period. Wordpress is the main competitor but the UI/UX is too complicated and the code base is outdated. With ExpressionEngine and the great concept of channels and tags for html templates, you can build dynamics website, international versions too.

    The future of ExpressionEngine is bright and we are a strong expert of it. We have more than 7 years of experience, building different type of websites or web apps. Feel free to ask a quote about our development services and check the EECMS website. You will be impressed and delighted by what you will see.

    Opinions Welcome to macOS Big Sur and Macs with Apple Silicon

    Yesterday was an historic day for Apple. So many news and updates in the WWDC keynote. We loved it.

    Clearly, the new Macs with Apple Silicon is a new challenge for the Apple community but the consistency will be stronger than ever at the end of the process. We are predicting a slowdown of Mac purchases for the next two years. Consumers are going to have a wait and see observation period. It's our guess but maybe we are wrong on that. We downloaded and tested macOS Big Sur and we love it. It's a nice refresh, a nice update of macOS UI/UX but we also observed a lot of problems and a lot of weird choices.

    • Sheet windows are finally gone
    • The open dialog is different and feels a bit strange
    • The icons of macOS applications or system preferences seems designed by a student, Apple can do much better
    • We love the new icons in toolbars
    • Selected tabs have a new UI/UX and the focus of the selected tab is not enough strong

    We tested few applications and everything seems right. A public beta in July seems a bit too early on our opinion. Anyway, we are available to help you understanding the consequences of all these big changes.
