Happy 2nd Birthday, JCM!
The Joomla! Community Magazine celebrates its 2nd birthday this month! Since July 2010, there have been 503 articles published in 18 languages. According to Google Analytics, we have had 1,118,483 unique visits to the site, with 1,769,164 page views! Not bad for a two year old!
The Joomla! Community Magazine has been a great means of communication for the project. The monthly articles that have been featured have covered everything from interviews of community members, to how-to tutorials on using Joomla and its various extensions. Our authors are interspersed around the world. We are multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-faceted. Designers, developers, programmers and promoters… Joomla encompasses and embraces its community. And YOU are the community!
