The inaugural Joomla Day Midwest at Potowatami Casino in Milwaukee (Wisconsin, USA) is coming up on Nov. 12, 2011 and Anything Digital will be there!

In addition to co-hosting the event, I will personally be on hand to meet and greet our customers. I am also speaking about one of our exciting new products, Advanced Site Search.

Yannick Gaultier, the sh404SEF® developer, will also be on hand to discuss improving the search engine rankings of your Joomla web site.

Finally, Jeff Channell, the Lead Developer of Advanced Site Search and the upcoming JCal Pro® 3 will be discussing security best practices when programming in PHP.

Recently Yannick Gaultier, senior partner at Anything Digital and lead developer of sh404SEF®, attended Joomla Day South Africa in Cape Town.

We love going to Joomla events to discuss our products and the Cape Town was no exception.

Yannick had the chance to go over the basics of sh404SEF®, such as solving the duplicate URL problem common for Joomla-based web sites (slides below).

If you happen to live or be travelling in Greece, don't miss a great opportunity to attend the local JoomlaCamp in Athens on March 15, 2009.

Widely renowned Joomla! experts from Komrade, JoomlaWorks and the Community Builder project will be on hand to guide attendees in basic and advanced areas of Joomla use and development.  

As some regular readers might know, I recently missed my opportunity in December to talk at the Denver CMS Expo due to some fractured ribs which kept me from flying to the event. Well, the ribs are healing nicely and I've now got my sights set on Las Vegas, Nevada, the site of the next Joomla! Day in the United States (April 3rd and 4th, 2009).

Not only will this be my first trip to Vegas, but while I am there I will be teaching Joomla! for the first time. In addition, JDay Vegas 2009 will feature some very big names in the Joomlasphere (besides myself Wink) including Steven Burge (JED editorial team), Toni Marie (JED editorial team), Wilco Jansen (Open Source Matters board), Anthony Ferrara (Joomla core team) and Andrew Eddie (Joomla core team.

If that wasn't enough to get you fired up, just remmeber. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas (except for all the awesome Joomla training that is. You should really remmeber that stuff). Tongue out

For all the information and registration for both the training sessions and Joomla Day Las Vegas, head on over to

 The January 2009 (and inaugural) Milwaukee Joomla User Group Meetup will be held on January 29 at the Milwaukee County Research Park. The 90 minute meeting will start at 11:45 AM and a catered lunch will be provided. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
