Improved support, more robust documentation and tutorials, and professional plugins are some of the proposed changes on the horizon. But most importantly, offering a stable, seamless change-over is the primary goal of the switch in management.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) June 09, 2016
Media A-Team, Inc. announced today the company will assume management of the Fabrik open source project. Fabrik is a Joomla! 3.5 extension that gives the end user the ability to quickly deploy projects from basic forms to complex custom applications.
Rob Clayburn, original developer of Fabrik, said, “I needed to step back from the day-to-day operations but wanted Fabrik to continue without missing a beat for our community. I’m pleased that Media A-Team wanted to pick up the torch and keep Fabrik moving forward. I will remain involved in development and consulting in the future.”
Robbie Adair, CEO of Media A-Team, is active in the Joomla! community, speaking at many events during the year, and has worked with the Fabrik team for several years to create client applications that fit their business needs. About the new opportunity she said, “We have many clients that are using mission-critical applications built with Fabrik, so we have a vested interest in making sure Fabrik continues to thrive. We are so pleased that Hugh Messenger will still be a full-time developer and that Rob Clayburn is staying connected with the project. And, of course, we are excited to get to know the many contributors and users in the community.”
Fabrik, introduced more than 9 years ago, has a large user community with more downloads occurring than ever. The Fabrik forum is very active with more than 38,000 users and close to 200,000 messages. On GitHub, where the project resides, there have been 51 contributors to the repository with nearly 10,000 commits. Improved support, more robust documentation and tutorials, and professional plugins are some of the proposed changes on the horizon. But most importantly, offering a stable, seamless change-over is the primary goal of the switch in management.
