Joomla 10th Birthday Celebrations

Written by | Tuesday, 01 September 2015 00:00 | Published in 2015 September
The Joomla community is celebrating the 10 years of Joomla with creative art, video, meetups and cake.

The 1st of September is traditionally the day to celebrate the birth of Joomla, and that gives me another opportunity to again say: Happy Birthday Joomla!

The Joomla community has been celebrating by contributing and sharing their talents, and eating Joomla Birthday cake.

Joomla! - 10 years together

Cake & Cupcakes

Tim Plummer, from the Joomla User Group in Sydney in Australia, specially baked a Joomla birthday cake to share at their user group meetup. It looks delicious, and reports are that it tasted delicious too. Shaila Man provided the Joomla cupcakes.

Sarah Watz, the current President of the Board of Open Source Matters, shared joomlaheart and a cake for all the Joomlers.

JRum, Sushi & Summer Holiday

Maartijn Maandag, also from The Netherlands, had enough cake, and decided to create the first known Joomla sushi, called Joomshi, while Sandra Thevenet, from an Island called Saint Martin, preferred something a bit stronger, and was celebrating with a special bottle of JRum.
