Google Map for ExpressionEngine v3 pre-orders

The third version of Google Maps for ExpressionEngine is the final stages of testing and almost ready for release. I have decided to start selling copies prior to the official release, mainly because so many people were asking for it. But by doing so, I am able to more efficiently fix bugs, implement features requests, and address complaints a lot quicker. Currently, I am updating the add-on everyday based on the requests of the people taking part this process and the feedback people are sending has been invaluable, and everyone is benefitting.

If you have a project needing Google Maps in any way, this is the add-on for you. I encourage anyone that is interested to purchase a copy and submit your feedback.

Licenses are $50 USD each. Anyone interested in purchasing a copy should use the contact form at the bottom of the page. Be sure to include your name, email, and I will get back with you as soon as I can.

Google Maps for ExpressionEngine v3 is a final product. It has been in development for over six months with loads of new features. v3 is not compatible with v2 at this time, although I migrating utility is in the works.

A New Year

Objective HTML has literally taken a life and identity all of its own. Even though it is ran solely by me, I feel like Objective HTML has been a part of a great mission. 2011 was a great year for learning and exploring different avenues. With what started as a side project that had little to no direction, Objective HTML is now starting to become a recognizable name for ExpressionEngine add-ons.

In April 2011, I released my first piece of software ever made available to public. It literally changed the course of my career. It was free a add-on, and turns out, people actually used it. People liked it so much, it was voted Fieldtype of the Year. This of course only validates that starting Objective HTML was the single most important thing I have done to better skills and my career. I found that Objective HTML is the best way to get validation for what I am doing correctly – but more importantly, helps me identify the things I am doing incorrectly.

So taking all I learned from 2011, I intend on making 2012 even better. 2012 is going to be a year of self control and focus. I intend on committing to less projects, and spending more time on the things that really matter. I have several really awesome add-ons in the works right now, with a couple big ideas on the horizon. Google Maps for ExpressionEngine v3 is final and getting ready for release and is expected to be a big hit.

Bottom line: I've never felt more alive and enjoyed a job more than one I have now.
