While Content Management Systems (CMS) reduce the burdens associated with building a website, particularly an e-Commerce one, choosing the right system is a pretty hard decision by itself. The three biggest CMSs every eCommerce entrepreneur has to consider are a pretty popular in the CMS world and eCommerce entrepreneurs usually end up choosing one of them for their website. Joomla takes the cake because of its extensive functionality, ease of use, extendability and its ability to deliver a wholesome online business experience.
Joomla! is an incredibly powerful system out-of-the-box. Naturally, it can be extended through extensions (plugins, components, modules, templates, languages) to increase its functionality and make the site adapt to your needs.

No one likes to do repetitive tasks when there is a solution to reduce them. I was selected this year on Google Summer of Code to make the life of multi-lingual platform admins easier.

Ninguém gosta de fazer tarefas repetitivas quando há uma solução para elas. Eu fui escolhido para o Google Summer of Code deste ano, para tornar a vida de um administrador de uma página multi-idiomática mais fácil. A ideia é mudar a maneira como o Joomla! lida com vários componentes num ambiente multi-idiomático. Isto pode ser feito numa página só, em vez de nos limitarmos a fazer o ciclo “novo”-”gravar e fechar” para itens associados um ao outro.

A few days ago, with the Association Joomla! Lombardy and the Web Advisor Team, I had the great opportunity to live a work day with Xaverian Missionaries; I don’t want to hide the strong emotion I felt in bringing our beloved CMS in a so prestigious area, with the presence of official Vatican State delegates and missionaries coming from all over the world.
