The April Issue

Written by | 10 April 2018 | Published in 2018 April
It's April and in the Northern Hemisphere, it is associated with Spring, when flowers bloom. And the Joomla Community Magazine is blooming with yet another great issue for our readers.

We kickstart this issue with Joomla 4 Testing Code Sprint Cologne 2018 by Robert Deutz. Then we have An Interview With Rowan Hoskyns Abrahall, President, Open Source Matters by Helvecio da Silva, followed by An Interview With Alison Meeks, Social Media Team Leader by Embarek Karim.

In the realm of Joomla events, Robert Deutz updates us on J&Beyond 2018 - Become a Jeck!, while David Aswani shares with us some exciting news from Africa in Kigali Hosts the Sixth CMS Africa Summit

In How our JUG worked towards 7 new Aussie Joomla! Certified Administrators, Nicky Veitch tells us about certification in Australia. 

We have a great tutorial on How far can we go with Joomla! and Custom Fields? by Marc Dechèvre and Leo Lammerink shares with us Case Study: Joomla 1.0.15/Fireboard 1.0 to Joomla 3.8.6/Kunena v5 Migration. Last but far from least, Reino Koho gives us an overview of Privacy by default and GDPR, examples and best practises.

Enjoy this issue and thank all our authors in the comments for their great contribution. We at JCM cannot stop being grateful for all the hard work every contributor has provided for the publication to go live for another month!
