The mission of the Events site is to help Joomla users around the world find local Joomla meetups such as User Group meetings, Joomla Days and official Joomla conferences.
In just 2 days the site has received many submissions and on the site homepage you can see lots of events around the world using the new Locations feature we introduced recently.
Something for everyone
If you have not had a chance, please take a moment to explore the new Joomla Events web site to find an event near you.
If you don’t find an event close to home, we’ve also got lots of resources on how to start your own User Group and organize a Joomla Day.
Finally, for those already managing a Joomla event, please be sure to sign up for an account at the new site and submit your event so you can start attracting new users directly from Joomla.org.
On behalf of all of us at Anything Digital, I want to thank the Joomla project for putting their trust in us and our work.
In addition, I want to specifically recognize my outstanding colleagues on the Events Team: Robert Deutz (OSM member and Events Team lead), Mike Carson (Joomla Showroom) and TJ Baker (Joomla Shack). Jeff Channell — the lead JCal Pro® developer — was also critical to implementing the project. Without their determination and hard work, none of this would have been possible.
I hope to see you all at a Joomla event soon, including our very own User Group Milwaukee!
