Our Joomla! Story

On the 1st of September five years ago Joomla! was unveiled to the world for the first time. It is time now for world wide celebrations in the Joomla! community, one of the most diverse communities in the Open Source world. With the least entry barriers, here anyone can take leadership and make change happen. It is a marvelous community of users, developers, designers, documentation creators, bug reporters and fixers, evangelists and every single person in-between who has touched and been touched by this software.

Doctoring Joomla!

In an exam room with my doctor, I tell him, “It hurts when I snap my fingers this way.” My doctor replies, “stop snapping your fingers that way.” Ah, yes the obvious. Jokes aside, intelligent people, like doctors, break down hard problems into simple steps that don't seem obvious at first. I then proceed to ask him, “I think I need a second opinion, can your system just send over my records?” My doctor looks puzzled. I think to myself, “All those years of medical school and he doesn't know how to send over my records?” Where has the intelligence gone?

With the recent launch of people.joomla.org the community has seen a shift in the way it communicates. The new site, branded as the J!People Portal, launched as a “beta” version on 12 May 2010 and was quietly introduced in a simple blog post. Now, after just over two weeks, the new community networking site boasts involvement of over 2500 community members.
