Providing a great content management solution is one thing. Convincing customers to buy it from you is another. Successfully selling a Joomla-based solution involves both sales fundamentals and a message that speaks to Joomla's strengths while thoroughly satisfying a prospective client's needs.

The original goal of my project was to integrate a Workflow engine in Joomla, which I did. Then, we figured out it will be better and more interesting to rewrite the foundations of a new one (to master the techniques and extend it the way we want).
Last week, together with Robert Deutz, I attended the European leg of DrupalCon in Munich Germany. Although I had been invited to speak at the conference I was also interested to observe the Drupal Community and how they run their events. After receiving my invitation to speak there were a few hurdles to clear and I am grateful to OpenSourceMatters for supporting me in "Spreading the Joomla Love" and helping me to share our own unique experiences.
