A while back I discovered the heart in the Joomla logo. It’s been there all the time but for some reason I haven’t seen it. And now I can’t stop seeing it. I can’t get it of my mind. The creator of the logo has really captured the essence of Joomla. A heart. Or several hearts if you look closer. That is really smart. The heart can manifest a lot of different attributes for our community. Here are some that I see that I would like to share with you.
I’m honored to have been part of the first JoomlaDay in Russia ever last Friday. I met a vibrant community with a broad and deep knowledge of Joomla. It also has a great passion to grow the community even more. It was my first trip to a JoomlaDay event since I was elected president of Open Source Matters, and also the first time I delivered a keynote session with live translation. My session was called “You, Me and the Joomla Community” where I told my volunteer story. A big thank you to Anastasia Gabidullina, who translated my session.
We are really excited that the Joomla community chose certification as one of the major areas to focus on in the recent survey. The Joomla certification program will be a key factor in furthering the growth, development and success of Joomla.
