Pizza, Bugs and Fun in The Netherlands

It’s 6:00 a.m., my alarm tells me to wake up. Not a normal time for me at all to wake up and travel to the other side of the country. But that’s just a small sacrifice for a full day of fun with a lot of people, while contributing to the project and then finishing the day with a nice pizza.

The Heart of Joomla! is the Community

A while back I discovered the heart in the Joomla logo. It’s been there all the time but for some reason I haven’t seen it. And now I can’t stop seeing it. I can’t get it of my mind. The creator of the logo has really captured the essence of Joomla. A heart. Or several hearts if you look closer. That is really smart. The heart can manifest a lot of different attributes for our community. Here are some that I see that I would like to share with you.

Cum Munus - J and Beyond 2014

What kind of connection is strong enough to bring people together from Sydney, Seattle, Iquique, Oslo, Grand Case, Pune (India), Osaka or also Auxerre, to name a few?

Talking Joomla! at WordCamp?

For me, some of the more memorable moments of the 2013 Joomla! World Conference involved WordPress leaders being present at the event openly discussing both Joomla and WordPress and each project’s unique attributes. In my time contributing to the open source community, rarely had I seen “cross-talk” like this between projects, let alone those leading projects. After that event, my interest was peaked and one of my 2014 TODO’s was to not only attend a WordCamp, but also speak at it and share how our communities can learn from one another.

The Nasty Business of Passing Off

The GPL gives us some wonderful freedoms, including the ability to solve our own needs when it comes to adapting and reusing software. But with such power comes responsibility. I am reminded of the phrase, "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should." And in this case, I am referring to selling software written by others as if it was your own.
