We're back, with a round-up of all things eZ, and an open discussion on front-end optimization in eZP.

Join us this Tues 24 July, 10.30am CEST in a LIVE Google Hangout, to share your tips & tricks for optimizing your front-end code in eZ Publish.

The Show

I'm a perfectionist, and possibly spend a bit too much time on getting front-end optimization right.  I'll be sharing some of my latest work, and would be interested in hearing about yours!
