Joomla Speaks out on its 10th Birthday

This August I turned 10. That's very young you might say. Sure in human terms of that's pretty young..not even into teens yet. But in software terms..for that's what I am, being 10 is not necessarily that. I am not sure what it is in fact...But I am said to be more or less mature now. But then I have been stable and mature many a times in my life cycle so far...I am a foster child and I have been cared for by hundreds if not thousands of parents and each of them have put a bit of themselves in me. As you might imagine I have grown to have multifaceted personality. For some people I am a simple website building tool, for some a flexible content management system while some see me as a platform to build web applications on. And that's just some of the ways in which people tend to perceive me. Read my complete story!

A Selfless Effort to Grow Together

We are trained now a days by our elders that 'every person is selfish today, be careful..ssshhhh!'. Does this happen with you all as well ? If yes, then read further to break their heart with the power of our community love and to prove them that it is no more a reality but a mere illusion because We Have Joomla! here :)
