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. You probably had every intention of making 2014 the year you were in complete control of your tasks, your projects, and your calendar. Now before you've even had time to breathe, it's February.

Topics varied widely, but generally fell into three areas – self improvement, the Joomla! community experience, and soapboxes for change.
I was fortunate to be able to attend JoomlaDay Johannesburg - South Africa from the 18th to the 19th of October 2013.

I was a JoomlaDay virgin. I had not been to a JoomlaDay anywhere in the world. I had not organised a JoomlaDay ever before. Back in February of 2013 when my co-organizer, James Foreman, said he wanted to do a JoomlaDay in our area, I had no idea what was ahead.
