Joomla! Voices Heard Around the World
The Joomla! Community is a thriving bunch of Open Source loving geeks. We share code and experiences virtually in forums, social media sites, skype chats and various places around the web each and every day. Every once in a while, we actually get together for some training and fellowship with other Joomla! community members through Joomla! User Groups and JoomlaDay events throughout the world.
JoomStew Radio is a Joomla! focused Podcast that features many interviews and discussions with JoomlaDay and JUG organizers and attendees from all corners of the earth. Over the past several months we've featured numerous guests on our show ranging from OSM President Ryan Ozimek to JoomlaDay New England organizer Jen Kramer and many more talking about the latest event they attended.
We thought we would take a minute to share some of these great stories with you here in the Joomla! Community Magazine, so you might get a glimpse of what goes on at any of these great events held throughout the year. Many times the cost to attend these events is much less than you would pay for the same professional training through another channel, and the networking with fellow Joomla! lovers can't be beat.
Here's a quick list of some of the great JoomlaDay and Joomla! Event podcast interviews JoomStew Radio has published over the past year.
