A couple of months after the release of Joomla 4, some of us already have experiences with the migration of sites created with previous versions. In this issue, Sergio Iglesias, one of the organizers of JoomlaDay Madrid, tells us how he made his first migration to Joomla 4.
Are you familiar with Joomla 3.10? At this time, for sure! Well, Tobias Zulauf is the release lead for the latest version of the Joomla 3 series. Tobias started collaborating in the German community ten years ago and became more and more involved with the project, currently participating in several production teams.
This month we are happy to interview the newly elected Vice President of Open Source Matters, Nicola Galgano.
Nicola is a long term, passionated contributor from Italy, with a past in the Bug Squad and many hours spent on the Joomla Issue Tracker, squashing bugs and encouraging tests.
With Joomla 4 stable already released, many people are thinking about migrating their sites or starting new sites directly on Joomla 4. But, the question that arises is if all the extensions or templates are already available. To answer that question, we have been talking to the developers for several months now to find out what their update plans are. On this occasion, we talked to Sascha Dube, from YooTheme Pro, one of the major page builders we can find on the market today.
At the last meeting of the magazine team, we came up with the proposal to have an article in the August issue celebrating Joomla's 16th birthday. The main idea was to ask several Joomlers how Joomla has affected/changed their lives in these 16 years. Because at the JCM we love to hear Joomla stories. Each of the participants in this meeting started to tell, very briefly, how Joomla changed their life. At that point we said, how about this time we, the JCM team, tell our experience with Joomla?
Robert Deutz has been involved in the community for a long time, mostly in Production roles. He decided to run for president after a failed election, thinking it was a good idea to have someone relatively ‘fresh’ on the OSM board. In this interview done just a few days after he took up the role, we try to know a bit more about him and his ideas for Joomla.
Joomla 4 is just around the corner. With the RC4 version released, the stable version is approaching, and the JCM is still asking extension developers what's going to happen with their extension(s). This time, we talk to Yannick Gaultier, the developer behind Weeblr SEO extensions, who tells us how, at some point, he decided Joomla was the way forward.
Back in 2009, Chris needed to build a website. After building an HTML site, he thought there had to be a better way to do it. And he discovered Joomla. With a professional career as a data engineer, he continued using Joomla for personal projects. In 2015 he decided it was time to give something back to the project, and he joined the Certification Program Team. First, reviewing questions and answers, and since 2017 as Team Leader.
For some months now, we have been approaching extension developers to ask them how they are working towards Joomla 4. This time we talked to Tomasz Kowalski, from DJ-Extensions, whose primary focus is on the customers and making the next version upgrade as smooth as possible.
