Joomla! Day Denmark 2010
One of many Joomla! Days around the globe in the coming weeks is Joomla! Day Denmark — a small Scandinavian country of 5.5 mil. citizens, but it has the most CMSs per capita. Since the mid '90s every web company developed their own inhouse CMS. But the state of the economy is in the favor of Joomla! and more and more webdevelopers and companies are realizing the benefits of deploying Joomla! because they can cut down on development time — and save money, get their websites up faster — and make money.
Joomla! Day DK was started in planning stages in the spring of 2010, but the organizer realized it was a bigger task and pushed back the dates to allow for time to promote the event. Joomla! Day will be held on 10/29 and 10/30 in Kolding, a small city, but strategically situated within reach of Joomla! users from not only Denmark, but also Norway, Sweden and Germany.
I had a chance to talk with Ronni Christiansen, one of the co-organizers, about the Joomla! Day DK, but I also learned that world's largest shipping company is launching a Joomla! website. For more on that please listen to the audio file beleow.
Joomla! Day DK consists of a Business day (10/29) and a Community day (10/30). Most of the program will be in Danish, but Andrew Eddie is scheduled to give a webcast session on Joomla! 1.6 — which of course will be in English. Being held at the International Business College on the Business day, there will be sessions on Joomla! based eCommerce, a session on Jomsocial from a business perspective and how to use Joomla! for intranets, and how businesses can integrate this in their business strategy.
The Community day will focus on Joomla! users, web developers and integrators, and the organizers are looking to form a Joomla! User Group Denmark at the end of the conference. During the Community Day there will be both presentations and workshops where users can get their fingers "dirty".
Tickets are available for both days or any of the two days with the option to buy food, and the Joomla! Day DK t-shirt. The two-day ticket, including breakfast and afternoon snack, is DKK 225 or US $41.00.
