Joomla! has been enjoying a lot of attention at Europe's biggest Linux and Open Source event, LinuxTag.

Core team member Alex Kempkens has been representing Joomla! at the event, held in Wiesbaden, Germany.  Alex reported back today to describe how Joomla! and other popular and emerging Open Source projects were not only able to present their respective offers but provides the opportunity for collaboration, brainstorming and networking.

Alex said the various Open Source CMS teams and speakers will meet this evening for a get together under the patronage of the OSCom, which is a global association that is providing services such as the CMS Matrix.

Alex is extremely pleased with the amount of interest in Joomla! and Open Source overall.  He said that tomorrow will see a feature of the event – "Web Talk Discussions" — of which Alex will be attending and making himself available as a panelist.

Other project members such as Typo3, ezPublish, Drupal, Magnolia are also involved in the presentations which are on tomorrow.

Joomla! is sharing space at the show kindly provided by Boris Karnikowski, of Addison-Wesley (Pearson). 

Alex has also posted on his developer blog on Joomla's Developer Portal.
