The Week in Review: Symfony Thanks, Translatable SiteAccess Names and More

This week's news in the eZ ecosystem: join the eZ Connector Program and win USD $2,500, a discussion about translatable siteaccess names and more.


eZ Connector Marketplace Expansion Program

The eZ Connector initiative was announced at the Barcelona Partner Meeting. This will consist of two programs: eZ Connector Competition and Build with eZ. When you join the competition to build a connector, you're in the running for a chance to win USD $2,500.

More information can be found in the official announcement, and you can register on our site.

Should Siteaccess Names be Translatable?

Sylvain Guittard from Product Management posted a question on our forum: Should SiteAccess names be translatable or not? "We plan to introduce human readable SiteAccess Names into the product. The main goal is to replace the SiteAccess code by a name easier to read, understand for the editor." If you have an opinion on this, please leave your feedback.

Web Summer Camp 2018 call for papers is officially open. "You have an interesting topic in the area of PHP, Symfony, eZ Platform, JavaScript, user experience, user research, information architecture, or user interface design?" Submit proposal by March 31st at

Symfony Thanks

Javier Equiluz submitted an interesting pull request to incorporate Symfony Thanks to our code. Symfony Thanks is a Composer plugin to give thanks to your PHP dependencies in the form of a GitHub Star. When this makes it into the eZ Platform repositories, I hope as a community member you will use it to say thanks and recognize everyone's work.
