Will you be in the midwest around May 16th? If so, The JoomlaChicago Group is pleased to announce its plans to host the first-ever JoomlaEXPO on May 16, 2008 at the elegant Renaissance Chicago O'Hare Suites Hotel. You're invited to "come together, explore Joomla!" This unique all-day conference will sell out, so please register soon, to ensure you've got a spot.
Check-in starts at 7:30 to get your Welcome Packet; then, the event starts promptly at 8:30 am. Bring a friend who's a Joomla fan too, as after the conference, we'll host a one-of-a-kind Joomla Cocktail Party (open source, open party, open bar)!
The JoomlaEXPO program will focus strongly on technical education, of course, but will also address practical issues related to selection of Joomla (vs. another CMS) and operation of Joomla in a production environment.
Come learn from an impressive lineup of Joomla CMS experts, ready to share their keen insights on Joomla, including author and entrepreneur Barrie North (compassdesigns.net); Joomlacaster, author and security expert Tom Canavan (joomlajabber.com); Anything Digital Founder, President and CTO Victor Drover, PhD [that's me :) ], CorePHP's Steve Pignataro (corephp.com); Azrul Rahim, creator of JomComment and MyBlog (azrul.com); the "CEO of SEO," Mr. Steve Burge (alledia.com); and Joseph L. LeBlanc, developer and author of Learning Joomla! 1.5 Extension Development as well as a number of popular online Joomla tutorials (JLLeblanc.com).
We'll have a lot more information for you here as May 16th approaches, but don't wait! Other Joomla! events have sold out quickly, and we expect Joomla!EXPO will be no exception. Attendance is limited to the first 200 registrants, so be sure to reserve your spot now! "Early Bird" pricing of $100 for the day is available only through Saturday, March 29th, after which the price goes up to $125.
