As the seasons change, with cooler weather signalling the end to a very hot and dry summer here in Cape Town, and the Spring Equinox in Northern Hemisphere is upon us, we look forward to some of the larger Joomla events of the year.

Nowadays, due to the advances of information and communication technologies in conjunction with the so-called social web, the amount of personal data that users are sharing publicly is continuously increasing. We are witnessing the phenomenon of the development of an online "heaven" of personal data sharing that can be potentially transformed to a personal "hell" for any individual or company. At the same time, cybercriminals are becoming even more sophisticated and malicious users can in many ways track and/or spy other users at their online activities.

Die Joomla! World Conference 2017 in Rom war ein grosser Moment, um über die Zukunft des Projekts zu diskutieren. Oh welch Überraschung: es bekam hauptsächlich den "Joomla! 4"-Stempel aufgedrückt. Im Rahmen der Konferenz wurde Chiara Aliotta eingeladen, am Marketing Sprint teilzunehmen. Sie hatte einen ganzen Tag Gelegenheit, mit den Leitern und Mitgliedern des Marketing-Teams zusammenzuarbeiten. Diese sind für die Entwicklung der Joomla! 4 Marketingkampagne verantwortlich. Gemeinsam haben sie viele Ideen besprochen und diskutiert, Prognosen gewagt und Erwartungen formuliert, um die gesteckten Ziele möglichst realistisch und erreichbar zu machen.

Over the last decades, the web has become significantly more social and made communication among companies and users much easier. At the same time, terms such as “privacy” were in many cases underestimated because of the abundance of public shared personal data. Users are dynamically contributing to the content production of the web, and they often get involved in a “game” where their personal data becomes the actual product. It is not unusual for a user to misunderstand that his personal data is information that could be publicly shared without any special protection.

The Joomla World Conference 2017 in Rome was a great moment to discuss the future of the project, which... surprise… will, for the most part, have a big "Joomla 4" stamp on it. In the context of the conference, I was invited to participate in the Marketing Sprint, kicking it off with a full day of meeting with the leaders and members responsible for the launch of the Joomla 4 marketing campaign. Together we brainstormed and discussed ideas, reviewed predictions and adjusted expectations to better fit realistic goals.

Our first real official Joomla Day NYC was in 2008 in Google. In 2009, I coordinated the first JoomlaDayNYC in a 'paid space'. This event was in a small space that most of us called the 'chachkie' space. If you were there you will know what I mean! In the front entrance, you saw little trinkets, etc. At the same time, almost 200 people met and worked on Joomla. It was an exciting weekend for all involved. We met people from other countries, focused on Joomla, and had a ton of fun!

Tampa, Florida is well known for invasions, from snowbirds to pirates, Tampa has been a winter getaway and vacation spot for countless years. Over the past two years, Tampa has also become known as the largest JoomlaDay in North America. The combination of easy access from the Islands, South America, and Europe and a break from the winter cold for our friends in the North has made JoomlaDay Florida a premier Joomla event.
