Calling all Joomla! 3 Migration Experts, Storytellers and Enthusiasts!

Written by | 01 May 2015 | Published in 2015 May
Pass your expert Migration knowledge on! Do you have expert Joomla! 3 Migration advice?  How about a great story on the client from hell and migration? Do you have some top tips scratched out on a post-it that you’d like to share? Are you a newbie Joomla! enthusiast with some basic knowledge you could  pass on to other newbie Joomlites?

The Update Working Group ( made up of your volunteer compatriots ) has been hard at work coming up with some great “Step-by-Step” documentation to help the Joomla! community new and old, with the Joomla! 3 migrations that are taking place all over the world transitioning thousands of websites from Joomla! x.x.x to Joomla! 3.

Now we need to extend that body of knowledge with a series of articles.The Joomla! Magazine will publish a monthly article or story over the next few months and beyond if needed that will serve to help keep the flow of migration moving in the Joomla! 3 direction.

We have some ideas so you don’t have to start cold and we can also tell you what’s already been written so you don’t have to waste your time writing about something already done. You can also submit new ideas entirely! As long as the topic is in the ballpark of Joomla! 3 Migrations we’re open!

So, if you’ve got an idea for an article, a great story or some expert advice about Joomla! 3 and Migration here’s what you need to do:

  1. Check the idea list here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1e_EDtPMdYdUrbLgDlX-hwbFXwZ-IXlXiqDRNQA86C80 )

Constance stumbled into the Joomla! world back in 2006 when a client called and wanted to convert a Mambo site into Joomla!. She spent 3 weeks pouring over all the documentation, the forums, reading books, anything Joomla. The road was tough and long but she ended up a dedicated Joomla! afficiando and web designer. No Wordpress for her! This is her first adventure into writing articles for the magazine although there will probably be many opportunities since she also joined the Update Working Group in an altruistic effort to “give back”.

Prior to her discovery of Joomla!, she grew up in the database world of Oracle and IBM, programming in many languages ranging from Cobol to Assembler to Fortran...yep, you guessed it... she's old and should retire soon but decided she loves Joomla and the community too much!
