Ô Hotels & Resorts launches a new portal promoting Vimeiro and Monfortinho


Ô Hotels & Resorts has launched a new portal promoting the Portuguese regions of Vimeiro and Monfortinho. Four character hotels in these regions have come together under a unique, single standard of excellence.

Hotel Golf Mar, Hotel das Termas, Hotel Astoria and Hotel Fonte Santa are now offering a perfect balance between adventure, discovery and well-being, lying at the heart of a rich heritage of protected landscapes.

The Ô Hotels & Resorts portal has been developed by Navega Bem – Web Design, which is a full service digital marketing, development and web design agency based on Madeira island, Portugal.

Chris Szabo, MD of Navega Bem explained “We are very pleased that we were chosen to develop this project. The design was created by one of Portugal’s leading brand and communication company’s ‘Brandia Central’ and our brief was to bring the portal to life. We were able to add our own innovations and the project has come together in a very structured and transparent way. Our software engineer Diego has been responsible for the project and has demonstrated a very high level of professionalism in bringing this project to fruition.”

“We have developed the site with Joomla! 1.5 and K2.
Joomla! is a dynamic portal engine and content management system.
K2 is a powerful content component for Joomla! with CCK-like features developed by JoomlaWorks.
The way K2 integrates into Joomla has given us a powerful hotels portal that is very user friendly and will be simple to maintain by the hotels.”

“The Ô Hotels & Resorts portal is available in 4 languages. This is not ordinarily an easy task in any CMS framework, but we use Joom!Fish. This is a sophisticated extension for Joomla! and it allows us to present a website in multiple languages easily.”

“Any web project using Joomla! that requires content in different languages and processes which help to keep track of the translations will find that the Joom!Fish extension does exactly this.”

Joomla! Day Germany 2009 – Indicator of great things to come

joomladaygermany-01Chris Szabo – Brian Teeman – Fotis Evangelou

Joomla Day Germany was hosted in Bad Nauheim just 30 minutes north of Frankfurt between the 24th and 26th of September 2009. The conference was held in the prestigious Hotel Dolce Bad Nauheim.

Chris Szabo and Edmund Elzer represented Navega Bem – Web Design & OrangeWeb and were present for the entire conference. Spread over three days the event was divided into a Virtuemart Day, a business day and a day for the Joomla community.

With a line up of high ranking speakers and experts in both the Joomla and associated fields, many cutting edge developments were presented as well as invaluable support for the award winning Joomla framework.

Day 1 (Virtuemart Day) was devoted to the open source ecommerce solution Virtuemart with an excellent presentation from VMart core developer Sören Eberhardt-Biermann and Thomas Kahl.
Reps from PayPal Germany were also present to report on the fast growing adoption of PayPal within the online ecommerce community and also to present the up and coming ‘PayPal Express‘.

Day 2 (Business Day) was for most attendees the highlight of the entire conference with compelling presentations and news about and around Joomla.
The second day began with a keynote from Robert Deutz (Joomla Developer and Author) regarding the progress and development of Joomla 1.6

Amongst the diverse keynotes and workshops that ran parallel, of particular interest to the Navega Bem team was the presentation of K2 given by Fotis Evangelou (Joomlaworks). The keynote about Multi-Lingual sites utilizing Joomfish given by Alex Kempkens (Joomla Core Team und Joomfish Developer) – and the case study of of the Event Data Portal for the Canton of Bern, presented by Geraint Edwards (JEvents Entwickler).

Day 3 (Community Day) was the final day and offered a very intense matrix of themes covering all aspects of Joomla.

Two events we need to mention that stood out more than most were the exciting presentation from Johan Janssens (Co-founder Joomla! and principal architect Joomla! Framework) about Nooku. Like Joomla!, Nooku is open source. It’s designed well beyond the expectations of a basic user, without the complexity of a bespoke system. The Nooku architecture integrates seamlessly into Joomla’s framework, providing developers with a simple yet powerful API to leverage.

Only the tip of the Nooku iceberg is currently showing and we can expect a lot more groundbreaking innovation from Johan and his dynamic team.

The other presentation of great interest and probably visited by all present at JoomlaDay was the “Joomla! Hidden Secrets” expertly presented by Brian Teeman (Co-founder Joomla! and OpenSourceMatters Inc.) The session was not only very informative but also very amusing. You should check out Brian’s video of ‘Hidden Secrets‘ which was recorded at Joomla Day Holland

We would like to thank Robert Deutz for organizing the event and look forward to Joomla!Day Germany 2010.
