    What else do you plan, if anything, for the xoBile in the future? 

    A custom configuration for each plugin.

    If you could add one feature to XOOPS, what would it be? 

    That you could set Access and Admin permissions when on the installation of a module, and preloads for themes.

    What is your major achievement in programming that you're most proud of? 

    The website I've made for my niece. Running on my own rather simple Content Management System. Getting familiar with PHP and start using it from scratch by making my own modules like: xoopsradio, ... and helping my dad with some nice hacks for his website.

    luciorota1
     Italy

    for his ImageManagerwork

    This month the Innovation Award goes to Lucio Rota (luciorota1) from Italy  for his innovative work on modularized XOOPS Image Manager  

    Where are you from, and where do you live now?

    I'm from Italy, i live in Montello a small village (3000 souls) near (about 15km from) Bergamo, in north Italy

    How long have you been programming? 

    I started programming when I was 15, with my good old commodore 64, in Basic and then in assembler (an hard byte by byte programming...) 

    What is your expertise? 

    I studied Pascal and C at school and I started my HTML, PHP, javascript experience at work. I work for a small no profit OGN (Caritas Diocesana Bergamasca); some year ago we needed to upgrade our internet site and so I ended up doing it... 

    What got you to XOOPS? 

    I was searching for a good CMS, an a friend, Alessandro Maestroni, told me about Xoops... 

    What do you like the most about XOOPS? 

    I think there are a lot of good open source CMS... I like Xoops because it's very easy to learn, because the distance between ideas and reality is very short...

    Why did you decide to work on the modularized ImageEditor? 

    I think that xoops need a more efficient image manager... first step is to modularize it and then... 

    And what about your MultiEditor? 

    I needed a more efficient editor managing tool... it is still a "ultra-beta" work... I don't now if I'll find time to go on...

    If you could add one feature to XOOPS, what would it be? 

    Last Xoops releases are good works...

    Wish list: 
    - a common admin interface for any module (same icons, similar menu, ...), this way Xoops will have a more professional look 
    - a more cooperative nity, for example it will be great if someone join with me to create an Editor Team... working togheter is better then working alone

    What is your major achievement in programming that you're most proud of? 

    My Xoops works, really... , I have a small site http://luciorota.altervista.org/xoops/with some of my works.

    scottlai
     China

    for his XAM Framework

    This month the Innovation Award goes to Chuting (Scott) Lai (scottlai) from China for his innovative work on XAM (XOOPS Application Module) Framework 

    Where are you from, and where do you live now?

    I am from China, and I live in GuangZhou, the capital of Guangdong province, south of China.

    How long have you been programming? 

    The first time I did programming was 1999, started on Visual Basic. After a year, I started to learn C++ and PHP by myself. 

    What is your expertise? 

    Using C++ to build desktop applications, and using PHP to build web applications. 

    What got you to XOOPS? 

    In Oct. 2005, when I graduated from college, I worked few months in a financial company. The company needed a portal website at that time. A friend told me that I can use CMS to build portal website. That was my first time to hear the word "CMS". So I searched for CMS on internet, then I found XOOPS, and other CMS platform. After 2 months of testing XOOPS, I chose XOOPS to build the company portal website at last. From then on, I used XOOPS to do projects and create modules of XOOPS.

    What do you like the most about XOOPS? 

    I like that XOOPS has a good architecture, rich API and interfaces to extend. And there are a large number of users and community support.

    Why did you decide to work on the XAM Framework? 

    First, let me explain what is XAM. XAM is short for XOOPS Application Module. It means the framework is used to build application module of XOOPS.

    From 2005, I started do development of XOOPS. I created modules in 2.2x, 2.0x and 2.3x. During this time, I read many modules' code. I found that there is a lot of redundant code in many of the existing modules' code. And the developers had to code twice for the front area and the Admin area, even if the code has the same function. It is difficult to maintain and upgrade the functions after a long time. And module developing is lacking design pattern or standard specifications. Although XAM Framework is an independent entity in the XOOPS world, its development does not conflict or duplicate XOOPS. In fact, XAM Framework is the XOOPS API for another re-packaging, which aims to make it easier for programmers to develop and maintain the module. 

    What are the major advantages of XAM Framework? Why should XOOPS Developers care about XAM? 

    Advantages of using XAM Framework to build module: 
    1. Single entry mode, help to rewrite URL easily. 
    2. Use MVC design pattern to coding.(Like coding in Zend Framework) 
    3. Writting one copy code can be used in Foreground and Admin area. Example, a code file controller.helloworld.php in module root, you can access it both in http://locahost/modules/foo/index.php/helloworld  and http://localhost/modules/foo/admin/index.php/helloworld 
    4. Migration easliy to different version of XOOPS. 

    I hope more and more developers can test XAM Framework, and give me more advices. The target of XAM Framework is to simplify the module development process, reduce code redundancy, so that module development can happen from a development model or specifications.

    What is your ultimate goal for XAM Framework? 

    I will update and add to the XAM Framework constantly, to let it be continuously improved and provide additional functionality.

    What other features do you plan to add? 

    I plan to add some more classes like FormWorker and XGrid. And I have a plan to use XOOPS and XAM Framework to develop a Supply Chain Management software.

    What is your major achievement in programming that you're most proud of? 

    In fact I am proud that I created XAM Framework.

    What are your hobbies, when you're not coding? 

    Swimming, cooking, listening to music, and watching movie.

    You favorite dish and drink? 

    I like Chinese food, also like sushi and sashimi.

    What about movies and music? 

    I like movies and pop music.

    If you would have a chance for a 30 seconds commercial with a message to the world, what would you say? 

    Never give up, try your hard to do best.

    If you could choose a place and time to live, what would it be and why? 

    I love my home, so I will choose to live in GuangZhou.

    I had the idea for few months to do this kind of module. I know that there are many people who try to make modules but they are not able. For me, when I started working on XOOPS, I would have preferred a module like this to see how codes are structured in XOOPS module. Now, I am used to avoid coding classes and the admin - it is easier to just fill in a form

     China

    for new design of XOOPS China

    This month the Innovation Award goes to Ruoyu SUN (insraq) from China for his innovative work on XOOPS China Website 

    Where are you from, and where do you live now?

    I was born in Qingdao and now I live in Hong Kong.

    How long have you been programming? 

    I started learning design in 2002 and joined XOOPS China in 2004 as a designer.

    What is your expertise? 

    I'm good at UE/UI, Web Design(XHTML+CSS).

    What got you to XOOPS? 

    I learnt about XOOPS through Google. And phppp(aka. D.J.) invited me to join XOOPS China. Since then I've been working with XOOPS.

    What do you like the most about XOOPS? 

    I like the theme engine(Smarty) a lot. It makes designing much easier.

    Why did you decide to work on the XOOPS China new look? 

    The old theme of XOOPS China was a little bit out of fashion. I think, as the official Chinese support site, XOOPS China should have a stylish look to attract new users.

    Where do you get your inspiration? 

    I studied some successful cases of CMS official sites and got an idea of page layout from them. I referred to many great Web 2.0 designs and learnt a lot from them, too.

    I understand, you're still studying at a University. Are you going to be a professional designer?

    Maybe not. I’m a PAC (professional accountancy) major and as I live in Hong Kong, studying business might be a reasonable choice. But I’ll treat designing as part of my career because I simply like it.

    What are your hobbies, when you're not coding? 

    Movies, music and reading.

    You favorite dish and drink? 

    Well, I’m not particular about it. I like Chinese food but I’d like to try exotic dishes.

    What about movies and music? 

    I like movies and music but I don’t have a specified favorite.

    If you would have a chance for a 30 seconds commercial with a message to the world, what would you say? 

    Please upgrade IE 6 to some standards-compatible browsers.

    If you could choose a place and time to live, what would it be and why? 

    Probably I would chose living in the Ottoman Empire time, especially in 1453 when taking Istanbul. Being a soldier in this time must be a privilege.

    Who is the person that you would like to meet and why? 

    I would like to go to the US after graduating from my university because there are many great universities in the States.

    Where are you from, and where do you live now?

    I'm from Istanbul in Turkey but living in Ankara for a long time.

    How long have you been programming? 

    I'm not a professional programmer, but I'm trying to program since 2005

    What is your expertise? 

    Actually I'm a medical student and want to be an expert in medicine. It's a really hard field to study. But somehow I enjoy digital art and designing. I'm working on both 2D and 3D designs.

    2 or 3 years ago I decided to create a website about medicine. Then I've made a list of features that my website must have. And started to search the best CMS. I have analyzed nearly all free CMS, then finally I chose XOOPS which was best for my website..

    What do you like the most about XOOPS? 

    It's easy to use and has a great community. Also handy for both module and theme coders. And maybe they are the main reasons why XOOPS has lots of modules and other hacks.

    Why did you decide to work on the MyQuiz module? 

    My website was about education so it had to have a quiz system. I searched deeply but couldn't find a good quiz module. And then I decided to work on MyQuiz. I have examined the most of quiz applications and tried to use their handy features with MyQuiz. And I hope this module will be a starting point to using XOOPS for people who have education websites.

    What is your major achievement in programming that you're most proud of? 

    Major achievement comes with major learnings. I spent lots of time with MyQuiz, and while doing it I've learned more about XOOPS, and also jquery system. Maybe MyQuiz was my major achievement for now, but there will better development projects done by me soon.

    What are your hobbies, when you're not coding? 

    When I'm not coding and not studying for medical classes, I like reading books, watching movie, playing football (soccer in USA), drawing cartoon images and riding bicycle outside the city. I have lots of extra hobbies but its enough I think

    Mainly HTML, CSS, a little PHP and Javascript

    What got you to XOOPS? 

    When I worked once on a site for one of my clients, it was required to provide high degree of dynamic interaction, thus the big capacity of a site, support of various languages and still possibility of connection of the modules. In the end, only XOOPS was able to fulfill these requirements!

    I love in XOOPS its amazing flexibility when I develop sites of various complexity and direction. And, of course, its modular structure.
