Credits The phpShop software receives contributions from far and wide. Here's the phpShop Hall of Fame: o Pablo Martinez developed the original idea of phpShop. He is also resonsible for developing the overall architecture of phpShop and just about everything you see in the administration area. o Matt Oberpriller developed the Intershipper module. Kudos to Matt for his excellent implementation of a shipping solution. o Jorge Pasarell developed the ever so difficult product administration screens. Hats off to Jorge for his coding contributions. He also had to put up with Pablo's daily "What if...". o Thanks to Jon Allmett for Wednesday nights at CJ's. He can jam.... Check him and his band out at http://www.garrisonfield.com. o Gregory Day developed the ordering process classes and is also responsible for bringing many security related suggestions to the table. o Kristian Kohntopp and the PHPLIB team for their invaluable code and support. It was not until we saw the way they use classes that things started making sense with PHP. o All the other phpShoppers that have stuck with us during these early days. Thanks for the constant feedback and attention to detail. It makes our work worth it. o Of course the list of credits would be quite incomplete without mentioning Stig Sæther Bakken Alexander Aulbach Egon Schmid Jim Winstead Lars Torben Wilson Rasmus Lerdorf Zeev Suraski 10/07/2002 xShop ~mds xShop is the brainchild of Aric Caley and Mitchell Sheean. It stands for eXtended phpShop. Based on the concepts of phpShop created by those above, Caley and Sheean are taking it to the next level. The concepts of phpshop are good, however the code is hard to work with since the html is mixed with php. fSince both Caley and Sheean are savvy to the power of using phplib templates they decided to convert the software to that format. Once in template format, development can occur much more rapidly than with the existing code.
