Roundup from JUG Corner - March 2014

With 162 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! User Groups, events, and reviews of JUG meetings.

If you have anything you would like me to feature from your Joomla User Group please send me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You must be writing from a registered Joomla! User Group (i.e. listed at https://community.joomla.org/user-groups.html).

This month I'll be rounding up February and March, as I did not write a round up last month. It's been a busy couple of months, and I've had the great pleasure to meet many more JUG organisers and community members around the world over the past two months.

We have also had word that at least four new JUGs will be formed as a result of Joomla! events over the past two months, which is great news!

If you're interested in starting up a JUG just visit the directory at community.joomla.org/user-groups.html and see whether there are any nearby. If not, all you need is somebody else to join you in starting the group, and a venue in which to meet. You'll also need some kind of online presence, ideally a website but you can also use Meetup.com or social networks to organise your group while you get a website off the ground.

Joomla User Group Melbourne was a great success this month with a 1 hour Q&A session covering the basics from downloading and installing Joomla locally, through to advanced user login management.  This was followed by a two hour session covering mobile first responsive web design in Joomla, and how Bootstrap3 front-end templates can help you optimise your website expereince for user on mobile devices.
