In a couple of weeks there’s going to be an important Joomla Developer Conference in New York.
Starting with a social evening on the Friday 4th, the conference itself is a two-dayer over the weekend of the 5th and 6th. There’s also a hands-on development event on Monday.
The location is beautiful: the Faculty House at Columbia University.

Me? I’ve been told I’m babysitting that weekend but the conference will be streamed live online for those of us who can’t be there.
