  • I was fortunate to be able to attend JoomlaDay Johannesburg - South Africa from the 18th to the 19th of October 2013.

    We've had a number of successful JoomlaDay events in Cape Town, so this year, Paul van der Merwe and Alex Parry, who are the organizers of the Joomla! User Group (JUG) in Johannesburg, decided to organize an event there. The Cape Town organizers (Matthew Philogene, Dwight Barnard, and myself) were requested to help, and I ended up doing a lot of the Social Media promotion for the event.

    JoomlaDay Johannesburg was smaller than the ones we are used to having in Cape Town, but it had a great vibe, with everyone who was eager to learn and to share.

  • JoomlaDay South Africa will this year be helo in Johannesburg, from the 18th to the 19th of October 2013.
