jab13 logoJ and Beyond, an International Joomla! Conference, is back for a fourth year.

From May 31st to June 2nd,  Joomla! developers and site builders from over 30 countries will gather in Noordwijkerhout, near Amsterdam.

J and Beyond is one of two big international Joomla conferences every year, with the Joomla World Conference being the other.

Why Come to J and Beyond?

Come to J and Beyond for all these reasons and more:

  • Learn from others
  • Share your ideas
  • Plan for the future
  • Meet the people behind the avatar
  • AND most importantly - to have fun!

Keynote Speakers Announced

The J and Beyond team are excited to have such a great and varied lineup of Keynote speakers including Pierre Joye from php.net who has made over 6000 commits to php.net.

It’s not just about the code - it’s about the relationships that are made. Chiara Aliotta will be speaking about the relationship between the designer and the developer and Xavier Dutoit will be there to build bridges between the Joomla and CiviCRM communities.

David Hurley (community development manager) and Andy Tarr (PLT) will be speaking on what have we accomplished in the past few years? Where are we in the current state of the web? Where are we going?

Finally there are two wildcards. Rod Martin and Peter van Westen will be bringing their unique, thought provoking and truly entertaining presentation styles with “Life Is Short And So Am I” and “What Nothing - Regular Expressions and other confusing s(?:tu|h[1i])([f]{2}|t)$”
