Happy 5th Birthday, JCM!

Written by | 01 July 2015 | Published in 2015 July
For five consecutive years the Joomla Community Magazine has published an issue every month, with stories and articles for Joomla site builders, administrators, designers, developers, and the entire Joomla community as a whole. Thank you Joomla community for making it possible!

Five years ago the JCM started as something of an experiment, to see if there was an interest for a project magazine, and if enough people would be inspired to submit articles about how they experience Joomla. Today we have full English and Spanish magazines, and a dedicated French team submitting articles every month in the International Stories section, along with other non-English article submitters. Nearly 3000 articles have been published since the beginning.

JCM Redesign Update

What could be a nicer birthday gift than a fresh new look for the magazine, with better functionality to profile authors, translators, and enhanced navigation and showcasing of articles in languages other than English? This project has been underway for several months now, and is progressing well. Although not ready for a preview this month, stay tuned for a new JCM look and feel. We would like to thank Randy Carey, Babs Gösgens, Chiara Aliotta and Peter Bui for the many hours they are devoting to this work, which will allow us to have a fresh and beautiful new magazine with much improved functionality!

Parlez-vous JCM?

Another huge thanks goes to Sandra Thevenet who has led the French JCM team for the past two years. Her steadfast and thorough leadership grew the team, established a working methodology, and ensured the steady production of original articles in French, as well as French translations of other JCM articles. Nous te remercions du fond du coeur Sandra! And we also thank and extend a warm welcome to Daniel Dubois, who has graciously agreed to take over the lead from Sandra.

It Takes a Global Community

We thank all of YOU who read and write for the magazine. For five years many people have found information and inspiration from the articles you have written. Keep them coming!

Happy Birthday, Joomla Community Magazine!
