If you wonder what's going on here... well, some guys hanging around on IRC all the time blog about their favourite topic, SilverStripe PHP Framework, and everything related.

The main goal is to save those little snippets and "a-ha" moments while developing and helping out others on IRC.

If you are interested in sharing your SilverStripe or web programming related knowledge you are invited to post there. Send us an email to info<at>silverstrip.es and we can give you access to the blog or we can post a guest article for you.
