On November 6th, Joomlers from all over the world will be gathering in Bangalore, India, for the fourth annual Joomla World Conference. Collaborate. Learn. Network. Share.
A fitting milestone for the Joomla project as it turns 10 is the process of implementing its new structure for governance. All of the effort that has gone into proposing and defining that process aims to take Joomla into the next decade and beyond by enabling great coding to continue, teams to be run more efficiently and have more impact, and the fundamental project value of community volunteerism to be upheld.
The Ebola epidemic, the Liberian government, and connecting with local tech enthusiasts are some of the areas where Thomas Karyah is using Joomla to make an impact in his home country of Liberia.
The Joomla project is turning 10 in the coming days and weeks. It is the conviction, hard work, love and passion of the Joomla Community that has brought us this far. It is the talent of countless people, some no longer active, and many who are, that has brought us this far. Collaboration is not always smooth sailing. But each one’s contribution makes a difference, and thanks to them today the Joomla CMS is a jewel and an exquisite solution for building websites.
For five consecutive years the Joomla Community Magazine has published an issue every month, with stories and articles for Joomla site builders, administrators, designers, developers, and the entire Joomla community as a whole. Thank you Joomla community for making it possible!
The Joomla Community Magazine teams are mourning the loss of our dear contributor, Manuel Rubio, who suffered a fatal fall last month. Manuel gave freely and selflessly of his time, his talent and his energy. Our hearts are broken. We will never forget him.
May 1st is a holiday in many countries: labor day for some, and a flowery celebration of spring for others. In some places the date is marked by a big bonfire. Traditions are as numerous and varied as our global Joomla community is diverse. It seems like an auspicious date to reflect on the hard work that goes into the Joomla project in order for it to be productive, relevant, and grow.
At this busy holiday time, it's a small but heartfelt JCM issue, wishing Joomlers all over the world a very Happy New Year! The start of a new calendar year is a time to look back on the past year, and look to the future. What did 2014 bring for the Joomla Project? And what does 2015 have in store?
