The first weekend in October, Joomla users and developers will converge in San Jose, CA, for Joomla! Day USA West 2010. This is the third Joomla! Day to be held in California’s Silicon Valley, and the 2007 event was the first-ever USA Joomla Day. Opening ceremonies begin at 7pm on Friday, October 1. The following two days, October 2 – 3, will be non-stop Jooming! Starting at 9:30 am and running until 5:30 pm, attendees will have the option of choosing 4 break-out sessions to complement the two group sessions each day.
The Joomla Community Magazine
There has long been a desire for the international community to have a chance to meet and exchange ideas. Robert Deutz took a chance and in 2009 began to organize an event focused not just on his native Germany but a global audience. Over the course of almost a year, he recruited several volunteers to help organize and drew on the community to propose and present sessions.
There are Joomla! User Groups all over the world. I am excited about this opportunity to help showcase the various Joomla! User Groups.
Even many great relationships are formed on line, there is still nothing that can replace meeting in real life. As great as tutorials, videos and books are being able to ask questions just sometimes is the fastest way to gain knowledge and solve problems.
