Final LinuxWorld Boston WebCam ImageImageMitch Pirtle, Andy Miller, Louis Landry

Core Team Member Andy Miller wanted everyone to see the buzz at the Boston LinuxWorld, so he's set up a webcam for us to check things out.

Andy, Mitch Pirtle and Louis Landry are attending the Joomla! stand at the show.  They guys have been inundated with visitors who want to know more about Joomla!

The guys have been giving presentations to users of all skill levels — beginners to experts.  On Monday night, they presented at the Boston PHP User Group .  The presentation included a Skype with the Joomla! Lead Developer Johan Janssens for a quick question and answer session — where there was considerable interest in the forthcoming Joomla! 1.5 beta release.
