Working Progress on the Joomla Certifications: a project in which the presence of the members of the Joomla community who speak Spanish is very important; a project where there are more than a dozen countries and various continents; a project, in summary, that will be born from the fusion of experience so diverse and different, that it will mark a before and after in the quality of the certifications of a CMS.
Let's continue with our series of articles on Joomla for non-technologists. In the previous article we saw what the “extensions” are, such as templates, components, modules or plugins for our CMS.
