Save the Date!

It's that time. The time of year when you start to organize your calendar and plan your events. I know, you should have done it January 1, start the year off right.

Fires were Lit at the First Joomla!Ignite

Joomla!Ignite was a new presentation style added to the 2013 Joomla World Conference. Twelve presenters took the stage at Harvard University to battle a tightly controlled five minute presentation format where 20 slides changed automatically every 15 seconds. Topics varied widely, but generally fell into three areas – self improvement, the Joomla! community experience, and soapboxes for change.
