May 1st is a holiday in many countries: labor day for some, and a flowery celebration of spring for others. In some places the date is marked by a big bonfire. Traditions are as numerous and varied as our global Joomla community is diverse. It seems like an auspicious date to reflect on the hard work that goes into the Joomla project in order for it to be productive, relevant, and grow.
The Joomla Community Magazine exists for the community, and by the community. It’s not called the “Joomla Magazine” for a reason. The JCM was created primarily as a platform for community members to share their stories, tips and knowledge about Joomla. As long as a steady flow of articles comes from the community, the magazine will continue to exist. This has been the case for nearly five years, but lately, submissions have been down. It’s time for the community to rally around the magazine!
I love organizing events... I'm a member the Joomla Events Team and the Joomla World Conference Team. My favorite event is, of course, JoomlaDay Boston which is happening on March 14th and 15th!
At this busy holiday time, it's a small but heartfelt JCM issue, wishing Joomlers all over the world a very Happy New Year! The start of a new calendar year is a time to look back on the past year, and look to the future. What did 2014 bring for the Joomla Project? And what does 2015 have in store?
This issue is a big one! We have lots of articles and, very happily, lots of photos. The one thing we always do each month is try to find a relevant image to go with articles that were submitted without one... not so easy when you are searching for something interesting to go with an article full of code.
It’s the beginning of November and hundreds of people from the global Joomla community are preparing to travel to Cancun, Mexico, for the 3rd annual Joomla World Conference. I’m excited about it. Here’s why…
The upcoming Joomla World Conference is just around the corner! I recently sat down with Jon Neubauer, one of the JWC organizers, to learn more about the JWC and everything that is planned. Read through and take advantage of the JCM discount code!
I recently had the pleasure of attending the Community Leadership Summit, lead by Jono Bacon and held in Portland, Oregon on July 18-20. I was joined by Sander Potjer (Joomla Community Leadership Team) and David Hurley (Joomla Production Leadership Team and Joomla's Community Manager). This was my first conference that was not a Joomla event, and it was also my first "unconference".
