Netgen's story began in 2002, when several friends from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing decided to start their own company. Today, there are 25 experts working in the Zagreb office, designing and developing web solutions.

Up until recently, when you would need a software for B2B online sales, comprising both content marketing and eCommerce, you would have to accept one of two solutions: the first, a mix of cheaper and unchangeable “of the shelf” options, or the second, custom developed and usually crazy expensive.

eZ Publish/Platform and Solr search have a long and established partnership from the early days of the eZ existence. In the legacy days, we were using the old and proven eZ Find extension. With the release of eZ Platform, we switched to the all-new Solr search engine. Back then, this new search engine provided only a minimal set of features. New features are added regularly. One of the most exciting features is the document field mappers, which we are going to explore more in detail.

Since it’s still hard for us to accept that this year’s Web Summer Camp will not take place due to the COVID-19 situation, it’s only fair that we spend this week remembering some of the best moments from previous conferences; and mind you, the first conference took place in 2012, so the list of “best of’s” is long!

We are glad to inform you that we released a new version of Netgen Layouts — 1.2! There are several ways to install it and try it out from scratch. For existing projects, we recommend upgrading. The biggest new feature –  improved export/import – will come in handy. 

PSR-6 and PSR-16 in Netgen Stack

PSR-6 and PSR-16 in Netgen Stack

Borna Matijanić , Mario Blažek

There is no web or web app today that is not utilizing some sort of caching. This makes caching libraries ubiquitous, which means that every framework has its own caching library. PHP FIG folks jumped into that and formed PSR-6 and PSR-16. Let’s check these caching standards more in detail.
