I have been a software developer for more than 40 years and became a Joomla! extension developer by sheer coincidence: I was using a very fine extension called SQL2Excel, when the developer of that extension suddenly disappeared. As Joomla 2.5 was around the corner, somebody had to jump in and migrate that extension for the new Joomla! - so jDBexport was born. Since then, I developed several other Joomla! extensions, mainly because we needed them ourselves, like payment plugins for various webshop systems. We don’t develop just for Joomla; we also create solutions for lots of different environments.

I run my own IT company (Schultz IT Solutions), in Vienna, Austria

After mastering HTML and CSS sites, Sandra discovered Joomla! in 2008 which she uses on most of her clients’ sites.
Aside being part of the Marketing & Communication Department, Sandra is a member of the Magazine Team and has been contributing as much as she can in a wide range of Joomla! areas and teams including but not limited to; Documentation, Localization, Imagery, GSoC, Compliance, Webmasters.

Born in the French Alps, Sandra is living partly in the Caribbean (St. Martin) and the French Alps (Annecy) and is running a web agency, IDIMweb, since 2007.

I am creating websites with Joomla since the beginning, starting with more complex sites in 2007. Generally, since 2004, I am building websites and online-shops for small and medium sized companies.

My webagency webgras is located in Klosterneuburg, near Vienna, in Austria/Europe. We are a small team providing high quality Joomla websites.

I was co-founder of Joomla User Group Vienna and JoomlaDay Austria in 2015, and I am still co-organiser of both and a speaker on many Joomladays. Since then, I got more and more involved in the international Joomla community. Eventually, I joined the CMS Release team and became team lead in November 2020.

I love Joomla and all its capabilites and features, and I try to stick to the core as much as possible - "Just Joomla" is the way to go for me.
