This time, we had an interview with Sina Asghari. A couple of years ago, he needed to create a (dynamic) website for a friend's project. Some friends, who were at the time active @ xoops.ir, the support site for Persian speaking users, suggested to use Xoops. The site was supposed to be running in Persian and the modules that were needed, were not yet translated. That's what got him involved in xoops. He started to translate modules to Persian, but wasn't a big fan of the closed-minded mentality at xoops.ir.

Our next contributor's interview is with Ignacio Segura. He has been working on the web since 2004 and is very proud to be a contributor to ImpressCMS. He was a Xoops user since 2005 and happily serving customers. When serious problems arised in Xoops, he needed a future-proof solution for himself and his customers. And betting on a "Xoops reboot" seemed like a great choice. Being a multilingual system since the first version was a big plus. At the moment he works on the front end and design and is associated with a Drupal coder (Oskar Calvo) who does the back end work.

Our next contributor's interview is with Steve Kenow. His introduction to PHP came through a genealogy application for the web called PHPGedView. Members there were bridging it with various CMS platforms. XOOPS was one of them and he elected to learn more about them. He joined the community there in 2004, learned a lot, and ended up doing a series of posts in 2007 about starting a new site. Shortly after that, a task force for developing new governance guidelines started and Steve participated in that. Sad to say, those talks broke down and 2 groups emerged from that. The current XOOPS management and the group that started ImpressCMS.

Our next contributor's interview is with Marc-André Lanciault who started out as a XOOPS modules documentor in 2004. After developing his first module "SmartFAQ", he created the SmartSection and SmartFactory, a XOOPS development team. In 2006 he was invited by Herko, the XOOPS Community leader to join the XOOPS Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of the XOOPS CMS and community. At the end of 2007, he left XOOPS with 30 of the most talented developers of the community and started ImpressCMS, a fork of XOOPS. It resulted in the first release of ImpressCMS 1.0.
