Carlos is a Joomla volunteer who works as web consultant for Joomla, PrestaShop and WordPress projects.

Carlos has recently published the book "Developing Extensions for Joomla! 5" to help people start developing extensions for Joomla.

For me Joomla has been a hobby for a long time - since 2008. In 2019 I  became as a Joomla extensions developer and now develop and maintain more than 70 free extensions for Joomla (see https://web-tolk.ru). Some of them are available in the Joomla Extensions Directory.

I am one of the moderators of the Russian-speaking Joomla community in Telegram. I publish posts on the Joomla Feed Telegram news channel in Russian, write Joomla digests and articles about Joomla development.

As a co-founder of Joomla! and OpenSourceMatters Inc I've never been known to be lacking an opinion or being too afraid to express it.

Despite what some people might think I'm a shy and modest man who doesnt like to blow his own trumpet or boast about achievements.

You don't need a badge to polish to contribute to Joomla you just need to roll up your sleeves and do it.
