Nicholas is a Mechanical Engineer turned web developer. He found Mambo — Joomla's precursor — in 2004 and his life was never the same.
He's the author of several popular extensions for Joomla and a frequent contributor to the Joomla core. He currently lives in the coast of Athens, Greece with his wife, daughter and two cats. He likes to credit the Joomla community for giving him a business and a family — he met his wife at a Joomla conference, after all!
When he's not writing code, documentation or articles for Joomla and his extensions he enjoys tinkering with mechanical keyboards, playing D&D and watching sci-fi series.
Since its creation, Phil Walton has been using Joomla moving his client base away from his own primitive CMS to Joomla!
Phil is involved in a few departments and initiatives, enjoying the community aspect of Joomla and learning much through the kindness of others.
An avid rower on the Thames, juggler, cricket fan, warm beer tasting expert and unicyclist, he is also a patented inventor and is owned by many cats that take terns in looking after him.
Hi! I'm Crystal, the Creative Director of Lucid Fox, a small website design studio which builds research-backed websites for nonprofit organizations.
I've been building websites for years and have spent time in agencies as a front end developer, web designer, and UX researcher. I was first introduced to the Joomla community in 2014, and never looked back!
Before I decided to go pro with Joomla (in 2014) I was a writer/journalist for 15 years.
In 2009 I started working with Joomla, not knowing anything about webdesign. I joined a JUG in 2012, two months later I was co-organizer :) (and stayed co-organizer for about five years). I wrote articles about Joomla in a Dutch webdesigner magazine and speak at JUGs and JoomlaDays. I was on the Dutch JoomlaDagen team for three years. Since 2017 I'm a member of the team organizing Joostock (a Joomlacamp/unconference event).
I was the editor of the Dutch Joomla web agency brochure, a brochure webdesigners can use to convince their potential clients that Joomla is the right choice for them.
At Joomla Forum for the Future (2020) I volunteered to contribute as an author/blogger/copywriter.
I run a web agency in the Netherlands, WebLab42, with my partner. We create and maintain websites for small businesses and non-profit organisations.
Since 2008, I am creating websites with Joomla. In 2014 I started volunteering in the Joomla community and I am now active in various teams (Maintainers, Accessibility, Events). I like to write articles for the Joomla Magazine and other blogs. Since 2019, I have been (co-)organising the JoomlaDay Germany / D-A-CH.
