Joomlers invade Tampa for JoomlaDay Florida
Tampa, Florida is well known for invasions, from snowbirds to pirates, Tampa has been a winter getaway and vacation spot for countless years. Over the past two years, Tampa has also become known as the largest JoomlaDay in North America. The combination of easy access from the Islands, South America, and Europe and a break from the winter cold for our friends in the North has made JoomlaDay Florida a premier Joomla event.
This year the invasion continues with speakers, attendees, and sponsors travelling from across the globe to take part in a weekend filled with Sunshine, Sessions, and Networking.
During the planning phase of JoomlaDay Florida 2018, we planned an intimate single day of sessions. What started as a smaller scaled back event focusing on local participants, has quickly turned into the most significant Joomla event we have done yet.
When considering the speakers for 2018, it was a daunting task to out-do our past line up. In 2017, we had fantastic speakers/sessions, and the feedback from our attendees was genuinely positive. Most attendees said they learned so much and thought it was the best line up and content we had put together for an event. For 2018, we started with the usual suspects and quickly added newcomers, and then the Joomla community stepped up. We are excited to have some of the most valuable Joomla volunteers and team leaders with us this year. From the President of OSM / Joomla to team leaders and contributors from the volunteers portal, events team, community magazine, capital team, showcase directory, certification team, user groups team, marketing to JoomlaDay and JUG organizers, this year, like no other before, the spectrum of Joomla teams will be here!
We have a full day of sessions planned for every skill level, covering everything from site administration, front-end design, security, templating, marketing, hosting, programming, branding, volunteering and so much more. Also, we are offering an afternoon of Certification training on Friday and the Joomla Administrator Exam on Sunday afternoon.
The event takes place in one of the most historic areas in Florida, Ybor City. One of only two National Historic Landmark Districts in Florida, Ybor City was founded in 1886 by Vicente Martinez-Ybor when he moved his cigar factory from Key West to Tampa. Ybor City holds a unique place in Florida’s social and economic history as our state’s “first industrial town.” Historic buildings have turned into stylish offices, bars, restaurants, in-town residences and hotels without sacrificing their memorable character. In addition to being a top tourist destination, Ybor City is a great place to meet, greet and do business. The diversity of the city is one of its core aspects, with something for everyone, from the Silver Meteor Gallery / Playhouse, to drag bingo at Hamburger Marys, craft beer at one of the local dive bars or microbreweries to escape room challenges at the Mouse Trap, Ybor City is a fun and unique town.
