May 2012 brings us JoomlaDay Brazil - Ribeirão Preto; the CMS Expo Learning and Business Conference in the USA, and J and Beyond, an International Joomla! conference in Germany.

Joomladay Brasil - RIBEIRÃO PRETO

JoomlaDay Brazil Edition Ribeirão Preto will be held on the 11th and 12th of May 2012 at the University of Ribeirão Preto - UNAERP.

The event promises to have topics that cover everything from security, site optimization, templates and development, and much more.

If you are a new or basic Joomla! user, you don’t have to feel left out. There will be lectures that will show you what’s new in Joomla! 2.5 and how to install and configure the CMS.

The "Joomleiros" throughout Brazil, and the Organizing Committee, are waiting for you!

This month we also have two important conferences on the Joomla! calendar:

CMS Expo Learning and Business Conference

This CMS conference is not exclusively about Joomla, but the Joomla CMS always features strongly on the program.

I asked co-host, John Coonen for a quick update on this year's CMS Expo:

"The hotel is now sold out, but rooms are available within walking distance, so better act soon to get a seat at the 6th annual CMS Expo Learning and Business Conference at the Hilton Orrington Hotel, May 8-10 in Evanston, Illinois. For the tech-savvy marketer, CMS Expo is the place to learn from the best in the CMS business. Come to learn and grow professionally."

J and Beyond 2012

Later in May, we are again invited to J and Beyond, an International Joomla! conference, in Bad Nauheim, near Frankfurt, Germany. This 3-day conference will be held from the 18th to the 20th of May 2012.

The co-organizer for this event, Robert Deutz, had the following to say when I asked him what makes J and Beyond special:

"We have arrived at the place J and Beyond was always meant to be. We have a good mix of developers, site builders and users, we have attendees from more than 35 countries, we have a great program "from attendees for attendees" and we have a strong leadership participation. It is truly an international Joomla! conference, some people say it is THE international Joomla! conference. I am more a friend of understatement so I stick to the first"

The Joomla! Production Leadership Team (PLT) will also be holding the second Joomla Roadmap meeting during J and Beyond 2012, and many of the Community Leadership Team (CLT) and the Open Source Matters (OSM) board will also be attending.
