Joomla! Day UK 2011

2020Media was proud to sponsor this year’s Joomla! conference Sept 24-25th 2011.

Joomla!Day events are a great opportunity for the community to come together and share learning, find out about the latest developments, meet the people behind the extensions which they use, and network with others who are involved in this area of website design.

With 175 delegates from around the world, Joomla!Day UK 2011 brought together people from all walks of life with every possible level of experience with Joomla! – from complete beginners who had never installed the popular open source content management system, through to developers who have been part of the team since the project began, and everything in between.

Microsoft kindly provided their offices, allowing the event exclusive use of their amazing facilities including a 200+ seat auditorium and 15 breakout rooms, as well as excellent hostesses who ensured that everybody was registered quickly and found their way to the right rooms during the event.

Videos of the sessions are being edited and will be appearing on the Joomla!Day UK 2011 website and YouTube channel, along with slides from all speakers.

Ryan Ozimek, the President of Open Source Matters (OSM), gave the keynote on the first day.

Ryan reminded the conference that the future for Joomla goes well beyond the CMS. The CMS has been an amazing piece of software, built by the community and extended by the community, but has been focused mostly on Web publishing. Ryan said “When I visit universities and talk to young people, they’re not that interested in building the next commenting system or blogging platform. They want to use Joomla to build the next Twitter or Facebook.”

2020Media is a proud supporter of the Joomla! project from events like Joomla!Day, Usergroups, the Extension Directory and providing top-class hosting facilities here in the UK.
