Roundup from JUG Corner - November 2013
With 159 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!

Joomla! World Conference
As many of you will be aware, the second Joomla! World Conference was held in Boston, Massachusetts at the beginning of November. The event was well attended, with visitors from around the world coming together for three days of conferencing, sharing and learning.
I had the opportunity to present a session on running a Joomla! User Group and was able to catch up with quite a lot of JUG organisers during my time at the conference – it was great to hear all the exciting things that you all get up to and I look forward to featuring more of your events in these articles going forward!
