2015 has also been a tough year with the strains of organizational changes taking its toll. Passionate volunteers expressed strong and opposing views about what the best way is to organize the Joomla project, and how to move forward. This negatively affected interpersonal relationships and teams.

We need to honestly reflect on how we as a community deal with our differences.

In this month’s magazine

Cliff Pfeifer shares very timely advice on how each of us can make a positive difference in our community this year.

Also in this edition,

Carlos Cámara shares about Joomlers who are challenging each other in keeping fit, by getting involved in community-organized sports groups.

Brian Teeman challenges how we refer to ourselves or others as “just a volunteer”.

Tessa Mero shares her Joomla journey, and David, from the Joomla community in Kenya, shares his journey to the Joomla World Conference in Bangalore.

Dom Cassone explains how you can increase your authority with your membership site, and John Rampton shows how to avoid 3 common mistakes that newbie Joomla users make.

Best wishes for a peaceful and prosperous 2016.
