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.
The Joomla! World Conference is coming up soon! It will be held on November 8-10, 2013 at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts (USA). If you have never attended a Joomla event before, this is the event to attend. If you are a regular at Joomla events, this is the one you don't want to miss! Learn more: http://conference.joomla.org/
During the last years I got more and more involved in the organisation of two large Joomla! events that are hosted by the German Joomla! Association
. Those two events, the Joomla!Day Germany
and the international Joomla! conference J&Beyond
are held once a year and attended by 200-250 people from all around globe, so it seems to be reasonable to call them "quite big". Since this year, I'm basically "in charge" of all things related to the technical realisation and with this post I want to give you a look behind the scenes, share some lessons that I had to learn, and tell you some best practices that developed over the past few years.
JoomlaDay Houston is getting suited up and ready for a fantastic flight on October 19th!
Even with the summer vacation well underway, the Joomla! World Conference Team has been busy behind the scenes planning what will be an awesome event!
Even though this is the first annual JoomlaDay Houston, the line-up of speakers and keynotes is absolutely stellar and make it a must attend event!
In June I will be in São Paulo, Brazil, the largest city in South America. During an event called The e-Show, I will be making a presentation about how the community is important to Joomla! I sent out a request for a video where people would state their names, occupation and proudly say: "I AM JOOMLA!".
OK, so maybe "party" isn’t the right word, but Joomla User Group (JUG) in Milwaukee (Wisconsin, USA) met last Thursday for their 50th meeting.
If you plan to attend all the Joomla! events over the next few months, your journey will take you from Europe to South America, and on to Africa.
