The Joomla Community Magazine
We all learn in different ways. Some of us learn by following written step-by-step instructions with or without screenshots, some by watching tutorial videos, some by asking others, and some by clicking around to see what happens. For Julie Steffers, it was a bit of ‘all of the above’. When she needed to create an intranet website, she started out by launching a website on launch.joomla.org, the platform that enables you to build fully functional Joomla websites and experience how Joomla works (for free!). And she learned a lot along the way.
Eoin Oliver can’t really remember when he made his first Joomla website, but he does remember that it was a very cool one, and how amazed he was to have professional software to build it with. He played around with several different systems before he decided to go with Joomla.

For many companies and roles, COVID-19 has brought unexpected closure and job loss. However, for others, it’s been a way to get creative on how to keep their doors open, including moving to a virtual model of business.
В конце 2014 года владелец iJoomla.com и JomSocial.com Мерав Нафо любезно согласилась побеседовать с журналом "Joomla! Community Magazine" о главных для ее команды моментах в 2014 году, но ввиду непредвиденных организационных проблем это интервью публикуется только сейчас. Читайте в нем о том, как она стала новым "шерифом" в "городке" JomSocial, который она приобрела в 2012 году; о том, как она и ее команда стремятся вызвать у своих покупателей "Ого!"; о ее любимом блюде "Суши" и о том, как сегодняшний выпускник должен подходить к осуществлению своей мечты создать свой собственный бизнес по веб-разработкам.
