13 years ago a CMS was Born. Today it powers an entire industry. Happy Birthday Joomla !

parth

13 years ago on this day, the core Mambo development team in a letter to the community announced its intention to fork away from the Mambo project. This letter was the seed that led to Joomla becoming a reality. However the name Joomla was not announced till the 1st of September 2005. It was a time of change. Head to these early posts on the Joomla forums to be transported back to 2005 ! So there could be some controversy on when is Joomla's birthday really ? 17th August or 1st September ? I'll let you decide :)

Since 2005 Joomla has come a long way. Today it powers an entire Industry and provides thousands of jobs to people world wide. It has truly been a change maker on a massive scale. 

Personally for us, it has been central to our growth and strategy over the years. When Joomla was born, I was still in college using Mambo for some Non profit work with my partner Ashwin. When we started our first company in 2006 Joomla ! Was our CMS of choice. Joomla literally has been central to our story since the very inception and it remains one of our core offerings to this date. We had published Our Joomla Story back in 2010 when Joomla completed 5 years.
