When you're a JET, you're a JET, all the way from your first cigarette, to.... the Joomla World Conference!!
The Joomla Community Magazine exists for the community, and by the community. It’s not called the “Joomla Magazine” for a reason. The JCM was created primarily as a platform for community members to share their stories, tips and knowledge about Joomla. As long as a steady flow of articles comes from the community, the magazine will continue to exist. This has been the case for nearly five years, but lately, submissions have been down. It’s time for the community to rally around the magazine!
On January 6th, I saw an interesting post on the Joomla Facebook group from Alex de Borba that began, "Let's start something different, shall we?". Alex was offering his help for anyone who had a question about Joomla. I read through the comments and was extremely impressed with his courteous, helpful and well-written replies. I asked him to get in touch with me if he would be interested in writing for the JCM. He did. Here is the interview I had with Alex, a bit long, but very informative. I look forward to his future articles.
This issue is a big one! We have lots of articles and, very happily, lots of photos. The one thing we always do each month is try to find a relevant image to go with articles that were submitted without one... not so easy when you are searching for something interesting to go with an article full of code.
The upcoming Joomla World Conference is just around the corner! I recently sat down with Jon Neubauer, one of the JWC organizers, to learn more about the JWC and everything that is planned. Read through and take advantage of the JCM discount code!
I recently had the pleasure of attending the Community Leadership Summit, lead by Jono Bacon and held in Portland, Oregon on July 18-20. I was joined by Sander Potjer (Joomla Community Leadership Team) and David Hurley (Joomla Production Leadership Team and Joomla's Community Manager). This was my first conference that was not a Joomla event, and it was also my first "unconference".
