Patrick Jackson is a long term Joomla user based in Melbourne, Australia, having used Joomla since it was forked from Mambo in September 2005.

Patrick's currently excited to be deep-diving into what Joomla 4's new features are going to bring to the table, and is familiarising himself with GitHub so he can help with resolving some issues during Bugs & Fun At Home to help get Joomla 4 closer, faster.

A Certified Joomla Administrator, Patrick's been involved in the Australian Joomla community since starting the Melbourne Joomla User Group in 2008, and is currently the Team Leader for the Joomla Volunteer Engagement Team. Reach out to Patrick if you're interested in getting involved with Joomla.

Patrick's company, KPS, specialise in hosting and supporting Joomla websites around Australia, and he's currently working on several projects utilising Joomla and to assist Joomla users with tools to help them make more from the Joomla.

I run a web agency in the Netherlands, WebLab42, with my partner.

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, speak at JUGs and JoomlaDays about Joomla and extensions. 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 in the Netherlands).

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.

Shirielle D. Williams (SD) is a long-time Joomla! volunteer serving as Joomla User Group Chicago North (JUGCN) lead and JoomlaDay Chicago coordinator.

When not volunteering for the Joomla project, SD is the owner and president of Danico Enterprises, a web and digital marketing firm located in the Chicago northwest suburbs.

Creating and supporting solutions powered by content management systems, especially Joomla are at the heart of Danico’s work.

 

As a co-founder of Joomla! and OpenSourceMatters Inc I've never been known to be lacking an opinion or being too afraid to express it.

Despite what some people might think I'm a shy and modest man who doesnt like to blow his own trumpet or boast about achievements.

You don't need a badge to polish to contribute to Joomla you just need to roll up your sleeves and do it.
