Roundup from JUG Corner - June 2014

Written by | Tuesday, 01 July 2014 00:00 | Published in 2014 July
With 172 user groups around the world, there is always something exciting and interesting happening in the Joomla! Community! This is a monthly round-up highlighting new Joomla! User Groups, events, and reviews of JUG meetings. If you have anything you would like me to feature from your Joomla User Group please send me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You must be writing from a registered Joomla! User Group (i.e. listed at http://community.joomla.org/user-groups.html).

Reminder to use events.joomla.org

We have received a request from the Events team for JUGs to add their events on events.joomla.org - the official events calendar for Joomla. The PR team who help promote Joomla worldwide use this as a central source for finding out events happening around the world, but JUG events are significantly under-represented.

The website received a refresh just recently and is much easier to use than in the past, so please do visit events.joomla.org and submit your JUG meetings!

JUG Registrations

We have had a busy month in June with lots of JUGs updating their listings, and several user groups in the process of forming. We're delighted to announce the registration of a new group in Boston:

What's happening?
