I’ve been in the Mambo and Joomla world for several years now without going to a Joomla event. Now I’m headed to two within the next six weeks (Chicago and Vancouver) and every time I look at Joomla.org theres a new event announced.
I did some research and in April alone there were Joomla events in Norway, Canada, South Africa, the Netherlands, France and Spain.
If you’d like to attend one near you, here’s a list of currently planned events for 2008:
- May 10 in Bangkok, Thailand
- May 10 in Durban, South Africa
- May 11 in Byron Bay, Australia
- May 16 in Chicago, USA
- May 19 in Sydney, Australia
- June 14 in Vancouver, Canada
- June 21 in Cape Town, South Africa
- August 11 in Sao Paulo, Brazil
- October 18 in Johannesburg, South Africa
I wonder if this is a sign of Joomla getting more popular, more professional or just better organized? I think its all three. Still, I’m excited by this new development and am really looking forward to meeting people I’ve only previously talked with on forums or Skype.
