These are times of change. The Joomla Community Magazine is moving forward. And to accomplish that, we needed to know the thoughts of the people who are part of this great community.

Joomla Community: This is YOUR Magazine!

In 2012 I had the opportunity to attend the very first Joomla World Conference in San Jose, California. I hardly knew anyone in the International Community at the time. I was thrilled, anxious and eager to absorb as much information as I could. At one point, I entered a room where two ladies were sitting at a table. Their presentation was named "Everything You Wanted To Know About the JCM". Dianne Henning and Alice Grevet gave us a great lesson on what being a volunteer in an Open Source project like Joomla and the Community Magazine can be. By the time they finished I was absolutely inspired! I walked towards them and offered to create illustrations for the magazine, or even write articles, something I love to do. At that moment, my life changed forever. And I hardly knew what lay ahead of me...

Personal Branding with Joomla

I believe that one of the most asked questions for us designers (including myself) is: what can I do to win new customers? Developing your Personal Brand is a way to open yourself to possibilities of generating new contacts and business opportunities.

So, You Want to Be a Leader!

This quote from Dwight D. Eisenhower touched me in a special way: Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because s/he wants to do it. Leadership is about setting an example on how to do the right things. And show others how to do it by giving direction and inspiration.

Is This Love That I’m Feeling?

Back when Joomla was released I started to benefit from its features. My career took a new turn and I can say that my life changed because of Joomla. For sometime I thought I was in Love with Joomla. Only recently have I understood what that feeling really is.

Hora de trabalhar!

Quando aterrisei em Frankfurt, não sabia bem o que esperar. Essa viagem foi a primeira vez de várias coisas: minha primeira vez na Europa, minha primeira vez na Alemanha - um país que queria visitar há anos - e minha primeira vez em um J and Beyond.

Time to get to WORK!

When I landed at Frankfurt airport, I was not sure what to expect. That was a first time in many levels for me: my first time in Europe, my first time in Germany (which I longed to visit for decades) and my first time at a J and Beyond.

Tracking the Trends of Joomla

A couple of days ago I came across yet another article announcing the decline of Joomla and the ascension of WordPress. As an admirer of the author's past work and presentations, at first I expected this would be some kind of fun article. I was astonished to read a serious article, where WordPress, Wix, Orkut, Facebook, journalists, and digital media agencies were cited as an anticipation of Joomla's demise.
A versão 1.5 do Joomla já não é mais suportada pelo projeto há algum tempo. Você ainda pode continuar usando essa versão, mas atualizações de segurança não serão mais disponibilizados. Além disso, tanto as versões 2 e 3 tem novos recursos e melhorias que deixam a 1.5 com um ar de ultrapassada, e é possível notar como o Joomla evolui nos últimos tempos.

Separe esse dia!

Chegou a hora. Aquela hora do ano quando se começa a organizar a agenda e planejar eventos. Sim, deveria ter começado em 1º de janeiro, bem no começo do ano. Provavelmente teve a intenção de em 2014 estar no controle de suas tarefas, projetos e agenda. Agora, e você mal teve tempo de respirar, já é fevereiro. Não posso dizer como acontece mas é sempre a mesma coisa - e acabou de acontecer mais uma vez. Mas não se preocupe e não desista de suas metas. Nunca é tarde para começar a planejar. O que quer dizer que agora é o melhor momento para se falar de uma oportunidade importante.

Resoluções de Ano Novo inspiradas em Joomla

Ao contrário daquelas resoluções de Ano Novo que muitos de nós fazemos mas não levamos adiante, como emagrecer alguns quilinhos, comer comida saudável e trabalhar um pouco menos, pensei em algumas resoluções inspiradas em Joomla que são FÁCEIS de cumprir.
