    Tipp des Monats: Personas in Magnolia 5

    Markus Leiter

    Maps and markers, the Magnolia way: the Google Places module

    Jan Haderka

    After a short hiatus from blogging, I’d like to show you something exciting today. I can’t take the credit for all of the work - the development was originally started by my son Martin, then picked up by my colleague Jaroslav.

    Armando Schär

    Schaut man sich die Entwicklungs-Roadmaps erfolgreicher Content Management Systeme der letzten und kommenden Jahre an, so nimmt das medienübergreifende, integrierte digitale Marketing einen immer grösseren Stellenwert ein. Ebenso laut wird von den CMS Herstellern die Werbetrommel für die neuen Möglichkeiten gerührt.

In just a couple minutes, I want to show you how easy it is to get Magnolia running with Bluemix - IBM's cloud platform that helps developers rapidly build, manage and run web and mobile appl...

    Magnolia DevOps Series - Orchestration with Fig

    Nicolas Barbé

    We have seen in the last post how to use the magnolia base image to deploy an existing WAR file. Even though this approach looks handy, it is not enough to build-up a production grade environment with Magnolia.
