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!

Joomla Day Bangalore 2016 a smashing success !

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.
