Joomla Day Bangalore 2016 a smashing success !

It gives us immense pleasure to report that Joomla Day Bangalore has been received really well by the community there. Techjoomla was a sponsor at the Event and Parth Lawate our CEO presented the opening Keynote on ‘The Spirit of Open Source. Here is a blog from him with updates from the Event. 

JUG Bangalore was one of the Joomla user groups that was initiated as part of the outreach campaign before the Joomla World conference that happened there in November 2015 and I was lucky to have helped initiate the same with Puneet Kala & Saurabh Shah early last year. 

I remember the kick off meeting where it was the 3 of us who attended the meeting ! Today their meetup group is 450+ people and the core group meets regularly. The speed with which they have grown & matured in the last 9 months is really amazing. If you are in Bangalore and want to be part of this awesome group, here is their Facebook page & Official User group page.

Quix- Page Builder for Joomla!

Quix- Page Builder for Joomla!

Joomla is one of the most powerful CMS on earth. As uncle Ben said ‘With great powers, comes great responsibility’. Despite Joomla’s power, its has one big drawback: building beautiful pages is cumbersome and complicated process.

A good looking page contains : components, modules and your modules should be rightly assigned to menu, etc.. As your site grows, it seems impossible to maintain and improve. If you want to change your template, it requires more amount of work because each template has different module positions and naming conventions.

Thanks to our friends at ThemeXpert for building Quix, a revolutionary page builder for Joomla. Page building in Joomla has never been easier before. Quix comes with advanced drag and drop layout builder, responsive controls, powerful collection system and much more.

Sneak Peek- JoomlArt’s new Free Joomla template JA Simpli

Sneak Peek- JoomlArt’s new Free Joomla template JA Simpli

A new idea which poped out of a general discussion between some innovative and geeky minds from Techjoomla, JoomlaShine, JoomlArt, Stackideas, Joomlatools and JoomlaCorner of developing a template which would be simple, light weight and one of a kind. Our friends at JoomlArt made sure that this idea turned into a reality which gave birth to JA- Simpli.

What's so special about JA- Simpli?

Well, you can say that this is the template which was missing in Joomla 3 or maybe the unofficial Joomla template because this template does not use any framework. Yeah, you read it right it does not have any framework and uses Joomla default template structure with integrated bootstrap and a template customizer. The template is fully responsive, has multiple ready to use layouts and plenty more...

 

Well, we liked it so much and we appreciated their effort by giving a testimonial. The creation of this template in a time where templates without any special 'frameworks' are not thought of anymore, this has proven that there is plenty of room to innovate.
