Saturday, November 9, 2013 – Geek Day

Joomla! World Conference - Geek DayCome get your Geek on! Saturday the 9th of November is Geek Day at the Joomla! World Conference where we have put together a schedule that will let your inner geek out!

We will be kicking the day off with Peter Martin and his keynote on Raspberry Pi and Joomla, Ethan Marcotte will be presenting a new view on Responsive Web Design, followed up by Kevinjohn Gallagher (in full kilt).

We have assembled more than 30 sessions during the Geek Day with subjects varying from tutorials over code workshops to web services, LESS, abstraction frameworks, google app engine and many other very geeky sessions.

We end the Geek Day with a social event dinner followed up by an open bar and Bugs, Beer and Fun with the Joomla Bug Squad into the night.

Our hope with the Geek Day is to raise the bar a little higher, and to show our community just how many interesting people with a ton of knowledge we have who are contributing to the Joomla! project. Be inspired, learn, talk, make new friendships and hopefully we will also see you contributing in the future.
