The 4th Annual Joomla Day New England occurred this past weekend at Marlboro College Graduate School in Brattleboro, VT, and we were lucky enough to have Dianne Henning and Jen Kramer there to catch up with some of the speakers and guests from the event.
In the beginning of the podcast, Dianne and Jen sat down with Mike Hoefer, the MSIT Program Director at Marlboro College, along with Jason Mark from Gravity Switch and a few graduates of STCC that were guests of JoomlaDay NE thanks to a few generous sponsors that gave up their tickets.
JoomStew Radio had a chance to sit down this week with 2 great guests from the Joomladay New England Event coming up at the end of the month. Jen Kramer and Matt Thomas took some time out to tell us about what we can expect at the 4th Annual JoomlaDay event along with the Sold Out Template Class the night before as well.

The first ever Joomla Day Austin occurred on September 15, 2011 in Downtown Austin, Texas at the Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz. The venue is unique to most Joomla days as it is an old theatre that has been restored and updated with new seating and amenities that allow for group events to be held.
Another unique idea to Joomla Day Austin was the continuous single-stage presentation format. Due to the unique venue having only 1 stage on which to present, event organizers Kyle and Melinda Ledbetter worked with members of the Austin Joomla Users Group to come up with a format that would have 2 Presenters at the same time for each session throughout the day.
In addition, each session tied together to showcase a complete site redesign of the Minis and Friends website from start to finish. The website was chosen by the Austin JUG members from a group of local Non-Profits who were in need of a website makeover.
The Event turned out to be a huge success from the eyes of both the event organizers and the attendees. Listen in to the podcast and hear the reaction from many of the presenters and the recipients of the free website makeover as well.
Thanks to Kyle and Melinda Ledbetter for allowing us to record this podcast on location, and to all of the guests for taking time to talk to our hosts. Last, but certainly not least, I want to thank Jen Kramer and Dianne Henning for once again taking the time and effort to bring this podcast to you folks here on JoomStew Radio.
