Joomla!, the world's most popular Open Source CMS, will be participating at its first San Francisco LinuxWorld next week.  For those of you who can remember, we were there last year and won a couple of awards, but did so under a different name.

 

Together with the award-winning 1.0 series, we will be previewing the upcoming Joomla! 1.5 Beta, which is evidence of the maturity the project has attained in a short time.  Lead developer Johan Janssens, who will be attending, said the forthcoming release marks a significant milestone.

"Our baby Joomla! was born nearly 12-months ago, cut his teeth with our first release and now the toddler is gaining confidence," he quipped.  "You may laugh at the metaphor but the amount of work put into Joomla! by our teams has seen us endure great difficulties and reap the rewards of a paradigm shift in thinking," he said.
