Joomla Camp Chicago is going to take place on 22 September 2018 in Chicago

JoomlaCamp-Chicago

Almost every month, a Joomla event take place somewhere in the world. While the ‘Joomla Day’ events usually have speakers who conduct the sessions, a Joomla Camp event totally differs from the Joomla day events. This is what makes Joomla Camp interesting. Joomla Camp is a completely hands-on event where anyone can learn how to use Joomla.

Joomla Camp Chicago takes place on 22 September 2018 in Chicago at the DePaul Club. Participants are free to choose a topic of their interest. The workshops that are to be conducted are then determined accordingly. Participants would be divided into small groups and every group would have a mentor to lead the team and provide instructions for the workshop.

Joomla Camp Chicago is a great opportunity to enhance your Joomla knowledge with the guidance of mentors who have been associated with Joomla for several years.

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.

Some great memories from J and Beyond 2018

Some-great-memories-from-J-and-Beyond-2018

Have you ever been to a Joomla Event?  Till recently they came in 3 main flavors.

  1. The Joomla Days - which tend to be super local and get a good mix of integrators, developers and business people
  2. JandBeyond (JAB) - which is an EU event but attracts a global audience and focuses on content that’s not just Joomla but also beyond. JAB tends to be more developer focussed.
  3. Finally the Joomla World Conference - the first few editions of which happened in the US and since it has traveled the world and been to Mexico, India, Canada & Italy. This event was retired after the Rome edition in 2017 with funds being diverted by OSM to making more local events happen.

The Events Page on the Joomla Community site is the best place to stay on top of events happening worldwide. So if you have not been to an event yet, plan your outing today!

Building Chatbots with Joomla

Building-Chatbots-with-joomla

Chatbots are a great new way to engage with clients. A chatbot allows for a more "conversational" style of interaction as opposed to the traditional "transactional" way of interacting with web applications. A well-designed conversation experience can keep users hooked and increase the time spent with your applications. In this blog, we write about how we used FlowXO to create a quizzing bot for Shika
