Bien souvent sur les réseaux sociaux, les utilisateurs de Joomla! viennent chercher des réponses aux questions du type "quelle extension choisir pour mon site Joomla! ?" ou encore "ou trouver une extension pour Joomla! ?".

On August 17th Joomla will be 10 years old. That's a truly amazing achievement for any open source project especially one that is 100% community run without any corporate overlord or backer. 10 years of a global community working together motivated not by money or personal gain but solely to create something that the world can use freely. As I look back to the events of August 2005 and the decision we made to leave the comfort of Mambo and start this journey it is hard for me to believe what we have achieved in that time.

But each one’s contribution makes a difference, and thanks to them today the Joomla CMS is a jewel and an exquisite solution for building websites.
