After Simple-XOOPS joined XOOPS in December 2008, we are very happy to announce that now EXM System will be joining XOOPS Team in developing of the next generation version of XOOPS (Release 3.0)
"I'm looking forward to be part of XOOPS. EXM System has been developed based on XOOPS, and now that we've shown what can be done to improve usability, I'm very happy to bring all the experience back to XOOPS, so we can have the best release ever" said Eduardo Cortes (BitC3R0), the lead developer of EXM Systems. "I definitely have high hopes for the Release 3.0. The new leadership of XOOPS seems to be focusing on the right things and therefore I just wanted to be part of it. " - Eduardo added.
"We are extremely excited to have somebody of Eduardo's caliber joining XOOPS. His drive for innovation, his expertise in module development, as well as his creativity in making them exceptionally user friendly is an asset that we've been missing for a long time. While XOOPS has one of the best architectures around, it was not the most intuitive and user-friendly system. With Eduardo's help the Release 3.0 will be a truly innovative, ground-breaking release" - said Taiwen Jiang (phppp), the lead developer of XOOPS.
Eduardo will be joining the Core Development Team, and will be leading XOOPS Usability efforts focusing on:
1. The User Experience: working on more uniformity in the integration of all modules.
2. The Developer Experience: working on more useful and easier tools for developers.
3. The Designer Experience: working on providing designers with better elements and more power to adapt and use these in their designs.
If you've seen EXM you know that Eduardo did a terrific job in improving usability, as well as on modules architecture, and we are looking forward to having him on board with us.
Please extend a warm "Welcome Back" to Eduardo and his team!!!
