Remember my goals for 2009? One of the goals was: Finally changing / update my template. Today, I'm proud to release this template, giving Marcofolio.net a totally new and unique look.
I already had my template designed November 2008, but never had the time to convert it to HTML/CSS. I was really lucky to be the winner of a PSD to XHTML contest on CrazyLeaf. The guys from Feathercode did a real good job at converting my PSD to a nice XHTML page.
Since I'm using Joomla!, I still needed to transfer this XHTML to a Joomla! template. It took me a while, but it's finally here: the new template for Marcofolio.net is placed in the wild!
Changes from the previous theme:
- Header/Footer (Didn't you notice?)
- Now added a live Twitter feed
- Made use of some fun jQuery
- Advertising spots are now through BuySellAds - Just $40 each!
Just check out the new Marcofolio.net that got a new, colourful, grungy, abstract new look.

It's been a while that I got a chance to write another post here. Currently, I'm really busy with school/work (just got a "job" at InfoSupport - love it!) which takes a lot of my time.
When my classmates and myself wrote the Getting Groovy in an SOA Study, we added some cool programming quotes that was a real addition to the report. When searching for those inspiring programming quotes, there were loads of others that are really funny (and true) where I (and probably many more) can relate to.
Here are two of my favourite programming quotes:
- Chris Heilmann
“ It's hard enough to find an error in your code when you're looking for it; it's even harder when you've assumed your code is error-free. ”
- Steve McConnell
Check out these other 25 to see if you can relate!

Six months ago, I've started researching a fairly new programming language called Groovy together with a couple of my classmates. Our task was to investigate Groovy, Grails, and their position in a SOA environment (Remember I wrote a review about the SOA Symposium?).
Looking back at the research, I must say I really love Groovy. It's an agile dynamic language for the Java Platform with loads of cool stuff. I'm planning on making some Groovy/Grails tutorials, just to show others how strong this programming language is.
More information about the paper:
- Written in English (By dutch students, so please forgive any spelling mistakes).
- A total of 74 pages
- Explains many aspects of Groovy, you could use the first couple of chapters as a cheat cheet for Groovy.
- Pretty nice styled and easy to read
Simply download and read the document if you're into SOA, Groovy and/or Grails (or want to learn it), a Java Programmer and want to learn something else, or another programmer that wants to learn another (fun and very cool!) programming language!
I want to thank Bart van Zeeland, Youssef Elmessaoudi, Gaya Kessler and Jaap Mengers for being my colleagues during this research. I'd also like to thank Rody Middelkoop and Sander Leer for lecturing us.
You can also read more research papers from fellow classmates about Spring & OSGi and Webservice Transactions (Dutch).

2009 is already up and running for a couple of days, but 2008 was a year that not many people will forget (for whatever reason). During the expensive Christmas holidays, there were two Comment2Win articles on Marcofolio.net: People were able to win some amazing prizes simply by leaving a comment. A couple of people responded and left a comment - Now, maybe they're one of the lucky winners.
I listed all the valid comments (that were submitted in time, left their email and were not spam) and placed them on Random.org. The comments on top are the ones that can call themselves the lucky winners!
- Sonali Agrawal - One icon package from IconGalore
- Valerio - One logo design from LogoAngel
- Ole - One website template from BuyTemplates
All five Flash Banner winners (Todd Budnikas, Priyan, Dulcenegosyante, Vanessa Richins, Enrico) will receive a 1 year Premium Plus package, worth $149 each from the amazing BannerSnack.
