Community Sessions

The Joomla! World Conference packs an impressive 70 sessions on a wide range of topics and skill levels into just three days. Enyone attending will definitely have a hard time deciding which sessions to attend – don’t worry though, we’ve got you covered, all the sessions will be recorded and available online after the conference for the entire Joomla community. With topics ranging from SEO and business to Joomla programming and platform development, there’s plenty of sessions for everyone, and we’ve even made time for some code sprints and time to get to know the Joomla leadership.

Keynotes

Even with all those great sessions, that’s not all you’ll get. With six keynote speeches throughout the conference, anyone attending is in for a real treat with great sessions like an “enlightening” presentation from KevinJohn Gallagher on Open Source, Steve Fisher on Responsive Design, and more including a look at what will be the newly released Joomla 3.0 with Kyle Ledbetter and Mark Dexter. Bottom line, for anyone wanting to find out what Joomla is about, or dive in deeper to the Joomla Project and community, the Joomla! World Conference is the place to be!

Community

Besides all of that, hands down the best part of the Joomla! World Conference will be the community. Chatting via Skype, or talking on a mailing list can’t compete with the opportunity to meet Joomla enthusiasts from around the world and people you’ve collaborated or worked with in the Joomla community in person. The conference includes several social events for attendees, giving you the ability to catch up, and connect with old friends, and make even more new ones.
