JoomlaDay Australia 2017 was held in Sydney on 17 and 18 June 2017. This was our first JoomlaDay "Australia" (rather than Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, etc), and was organised via a joint committee comprising Joomlers from most states in Australia, in an effort to bring the Australian Joomla! User community a little closer together.
It was my first J and Beyond! It was excellent!
Great international meeting of Joomla! enthusiasts was held on 2-4 June 2017 at Cracow, city once inhabited by the Dragon. This is why this conference was held under the motto: "Fight the Dragon", which was the allegory of "fight" on the Joomla! Project ;-)
Long time ago the people of Krakow, Poland had to confront a dragon that was disturbing them. Today, we are faced with different kind of Dragons, in our work, community, family and friendship circles, sometimes we live with them and sometimes we fight them. When it becomes difficult for us to servive with them, we use every method and ways of getting them our of our lives, so that we may be productive again and enjoy life.
Welcome to the JUG Round Up!
The 2017 Community Leadership Summit held in Austin, Texas was both inspiring for and inspired by Joomla's new Leadership Team. Joomla is not alone when it comes to challenges of a community of contributors, but as the largest all-volunteer-managed project; fortunately, we are getting many things right. Four of Joomla's leaders both learned and shared new tricks at CLS17.
During the JoomlaDay Marseille on 12 and 13 May 2017, 11 participants tried to obtain their Joomla 3.x Administrator certification. The participants were all french-speaking people.
In 2015, the Joomla structure team selected and implemented a transition team to improve the leadership structure and empower a stronger more unified strategy for the Joomla Project. This transition team originally composed of six members ended up as the responsibility of two people, Ken Crowder and TJ Baker. With the burden now on their shoulders, they carried the baton forward in building a thriving ecosystem with strong processes, community involvement, and a balance of power. I caught up with the two members of the transition team that co-lead the two-year process to ask them several questions about how the journey played out, what they learned, and how it changes the Joomla trajectory. Read below to learn what Ken & TJ had to say about the process.
سال 1395 خورشیدی به پایان رسید و یک سال دیگر ما کاربران جوملا «همه با هم» و ترجمان «جوملا» در عمل بودیم. این همکاری داوطلبانه نتایج خوبی برای پروژه جوملا و جامعه کاربران به دنبال داشت. ضمن تبریک نوروز و سال نو، در ادامه اتفاقاتی که نتیجه این همبستگی در سال گذشته بود را مرور میکنیم:
Joomla! is making its first appearance at the Davinci Faire and BarCamp in Sarasota, Florida. The event draws more than 600 people from across the gulf coast gathered at the Manatee Technical College to talk tech and show off their latest creations.
In March, the JUG Team sent out their first of what will be a monthly newsletter to JUG Organisers. The topic was merely to ask Organisers to come and check their listings on the JUG Directory for accuracy.
We had a number of bounced email addresses and have opened tickets wherever possible to get more listings up to date. Many JUGs updated their listings. Thank you!
The concept of an open-source, 100% community project may seem to be a small portion of the software industry today. It was even less common over 10 years ago when Joomla! was founded. However, 100% volunteer organisations have been around for many years - providing relief to those in crisis and facing all sorts of challenges, promoting social change, and encouraging personal improvement. Each of these organisations rely on people to contribute to the cause solely to help other people.
We had a look at our site stats in 2016 and found great articles that are examples of what makes a great magazine. In this issue, we are counting down the Top-10 Joomla! Community Magazine (JCM) 2016 articles that received the most views throughout the past year.
It's April and the change of the season brings great news for the Joomla Community. In this article, we will highlight some points of interest for our readers. JaB'17 awardees have been announced, Joomla! 3.x series is coming to an end and Joomla! 3.7 Beta 4 has been released, bringing some great and cool new features.
It is always a challenge to give a Blog category view a unique and attractive look.
I have recently taken over as the team lead of the Capitals Committee, which is the part of the organisation in charge of handling our income from sponsorships and advertising. One of my first tasks is to get some stickers designed for use at tradeshows. The thing about stickers is that they are small and are not very good promotional material unless people actually stick them on something (ideally their laptop, car, office wall, bags or similar visible area).
