A Joomla Bug Squad Lesson on JLayouts

Or... How I learned about JLayouts in 10 minutes, and why contributing to the Joomla Bug Squad can be a valuable learning experience. JLayout solves the problem of hardcoded markup. JLayout provides a simple mechanism for html markup to be moved into a separate file which can then be overriden by templates.

The X Factor and Women in Tech

Last December I wrote about the "X Factor and Women in Joomla". This time, I am extending it to women in tech. On March 23, I attended the LibrePlanet 2013: Commit Change conference that was held at Harvard University. A two-day conference, I was only able to attend the first day, and I was on a mission to follow up with Marina Zhurakhinskaya from GNOME's Outreach Program for Women.

Joomla! is the People

When I first discovered a CMS, years ago, I saw a tool that would help me broaden my menu of services as a designer. After all these years, I feel as if I have gone through a life changing experience and I thank a thriving community of people from different parts of the world who work together, in diferent areas, to keep Joomla alive.
