Joomla! Events for August 2007

Created on Monday, 30 July 2007 08:10

After the exciting release of the Joomla! 1.5 Release Candidate at the Joomla!Day in Austin Texas, the team will further promote the new system at two more conferences and exhibitions in August 2007.

Thailand Open Source Festival
During the 7th Thailand Open Source Software Festival, to be held on August 2-3, 2007 at Bangkok Convention Center, 5th floor Central Plaza Lardpraow

Chatuchak, Alex Kempkens will speak about Joomla! and the reason why a CMS is essential for Web 2.0. The conference which is supported by an exhibition presents several Open Source solutions and projects. The focus of the talks will be how Open Source solutions can be used within the company/office environment. More information can be found in our forum.


LinuxWorld San Francisco

The Linux World Expo in San Francisco has a very good reputation for the Joomla! project and Open Source in general. Meet Joomla! core team members Louis Landry, Rob Schley and Johan Janssens from August 6-9, 2007 at the Moscone Center San Francisco, CA. We are very proud that Joomla! project manager Johan Janssens will speak at the conference. Johan will introduce the audience to Joomla! with his session about: "Understanding the Joomla Framework - Tips and Tricks From the Frontline". The session will cover several aspects of the new Joomla! Framework and will give an overview of the different packages as well as explaining its usage with examples.

Finally we will demonstrate how you can easily create completely new web applications based on the Framework in just a few lines of code.

Does this sound exciting? A must see session we would say! Important for everybody wanting to meet the Joomla! team at the event. If you sign up before the event (until the 5th of August) registration is FREE (0,- US-$). Check out the conference details at the linuxworldexpo.com site. Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to meet Louis, Rob and some other special guests as well as other community members. Check out the forum and show hands if you will be around to talk about the latest news about the Joomla! project, your websites and everything else you like to talk about.

Over past years Joomla! has won some prestigious awards at the SF LinuxWorld.  With the release of Joomla! 1.5 we believe this takes the project to a whole new level. The new framework is fast becoming recognised as 'the next big thing' in open source technologies.  1.5 is attracting some amazing new talent — with third-party developers and architects wanting to achieve more than ever before with the Joomla! 1.0 series.  "These are most definitely THE most exciting times of the Joomla! project," Johan said.  "We've put in thousands of hours of development time creating this 'next generation framework' and we feel its potential is only limited by people's imaginations.  Joomla! is now much more than a CMS."
