Perl-ing 101 & GIT Training

Forever aspiring to evolve and learn more, some of our team got a chance to intensively learn about Perl over four solid days last April, followed by GIT training and testing in May. brian d. foy, a longtime Perl devotee and author, came to cPanel and taught a Perl 101 class. While it may come second nature to some of you, that isn’t always the case, so we were thrilled to have one of the …

Partner NOC-ing

10 days + 3,000 miles in the air + over 800 miles driven, cPanel team (@travisellis, @ericellis, @LindacPanel & @mariorodriguez) visited some of our partners on the west coast. cPanel visited over a dozen partners while out on a ten day trip through Arizona, Nevada, and California. While driving through the Mojave Desert, Travis could not stop thinking how much it looked like Fallout. We got to see the Hoover Dam and the Vegas Strip …

Tell them about the Twinkie

We have started on this ‘path’ of redesigning cPanel’s current primary theme called x3. We have even gone so far as to begin calling this new project x4. When Egon is explaining to Winston that the coming psychokinetic activity would be a Twinkie…”thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds”, Winston simply replies, “Thats a big Twinkie.” The redesign of cPanel into x4 is, well, a big Twinkie. The home page …

Wedding, Interview, or a Good Cause; You Decide.

This week I had the honor to represent cPanel, Inc. on Capitol Hill with the likes of some of the most influential organizations in our industry. Beyond throwing our first pebble into the mysterious political pond, I had a once in a life time opportunity to see longtime friends and industry icons in suits. …

You’re my boy, Blue!

One of the first things you will notice in the new cPanel interface is a concentrated effort to make the work flow as clear and discernible as possible. Keeping that in mind, each page of cPanel/WHM has one ‘primary’ action that is easily recognizable. For example, the change password page has one action, but it might be overlooked. While the user is asked to enter the old password, and then the new password twice, the …
