eZ Systems’s CEO and Co-founder Aleksander Farstad looks ahead to 2017 and reflects on the importance of fast adaptation. We also present a new Studio tutorial and lots of Symfony news this week.
2017 belongs to those who adapt fast
"We at eZ are content technologists,” said Aleksander Farstad, CEO and Co-Founder eZ Systems, in his latest blog post. We are a digital business, and in order to stay relevant we need to constantly change and reinvent ourselves, probably even faster than traditional industries."
I will shed some light on these upcoming changes and the positive impact on our community in the next Week in Review.
Studio Tutorial: How to implement a custom UI for Landing Page blocks
In a previous tutorial, Piotr Nalepa, Senior UI Developer eZ Systems, wrote about extending Studio with custom landing page blocks. Piotr has written a new tutorial, how to implement a custom UI for Landing Page block configuration popup.
“During the Web Summercamp 2016 in Rovinj, me and my colleague Kamil Musiał prepared a workshop about extending Studio with blocks that requires a custom configuration user interface. In this tutorial, I'm going to provide you all the information required to build such an interface in writing.”
You can read the full tutorial on the ezplatform.com blog.

Persistence caching with memcache in eZ Publish 5.x and eZ Platform
“In eZ Publish 5.x and eZ Platform, the concept of ‘view cache’ has changed. The ‘module result’ part of it (which was basically page-level caching if we didn't count the pagelayout) has been offloaded to HTTP caching, most often implemented with Varnish. In addition, Cache blocks no longer exist and have been replaced by ESI (Edge Side Includes) blocks.”
Read the full tech article about persistence caching, written by Peter Keung from Mugo.
Each week, we publish a roundup of highlights from the eZ ecosystem on share.ez.no, which we republish here on the eZ Blog. If you have any news or events to share, please contact me.
