... You never know what you're gonna find.

Joomla was founded and exists today thanks to lots of people being very generous with their time. It is built and sustained by volunteers. The same goes for the Joomla Community Magazine. That is why it is always so amazing, toward the end of every month, as the new articles come in, to witness the ingenuity, range of experience, and generosity of our community. The result is an enticing collection of articles, each one to be opened and enjoyed.

We are fortunate to have returning authors, some of whom have been around since the magazine launched two and a half years ago. Some authors break a topic up into a series for readers to follow from month to month. Recently we are seeing contributors include videos in their articles. We have international authors from all around the world writing in their own language, and more and more translators, who make important articles available to their compatriots in their communities.

Speaking of translators, the Spanish section has gotten so big, it has its own button in the right hand sidebar. It takes you directly to the listing of Spanish articles, which averages about 20 new articles per month. A team is currently working on configuring a fully multi-lingual experience for non-English contributors and readers, and we will tell you more about that in an upcoming issue.

Readers, we know from your messages and comments that you are many, and that you care about what you read in the magazine. You help us to steer our course, and inspire us to bring you new and interesting articles every month.

Thank you writers, translators, team members and readers for every month making the JCM a little bit like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates!
