JoomStew Radio is proud once again to have John and Linda Coonen, founders of CMS Expo, as our special guests today on the show. They have spent the past 5 years building the web industry's most successful CMS focused conference. From the FOSS platforms you know and love, like Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, to a whole host of new CMS platforms both Open Source and Proprietary will be featured at this year's Expo.
If you depend on the web for your livelyhood, you don't want to miss this event. This year's conference has an allstar lineup, no matter whether you want to learn more about Mobile, or need to understand Content Strategy, CMS Expo has assembled the best in the business to bring you great information you won't find anywhere else.

We sat down with two of the lead organizers of J and Beyond 2012, Robert Deutz and Brian Teeman, who shared with us a few upcoming treats in store for JAB12. This year's event runs from May 18th - 20th, in Bad Nauheim, Germany, where Elvis Presley was based during his military stint. J and Beyond is an event geared towards developers and designers... In the words of Brian Teeman, "If you think you can't afford to go, you can't afford NOT to go!"
JoomStew Radio had a chance to sit down this week with the co-admins for Joomla's Google Summer of Code, Chad Windnagle and Andy Tarr. This is a great opportunity to educate young people and give back to the Open Source community at the same time. It also helps to bring new folks into the Joomla project.

Paul Orwig has been a volunteer in the Joomla! project for a few years now. He started out as a webmaster for the Joomla Community website, and then moved on to become a member of the Community Leadership Team (CLT). His duties there included co-managing the JED with Matt Lipscomb, as well as creating the Joomla Community Magazine website that is still one of the best sources for Joomla news today.
In October of 2010, Paul was elected to the board of Open Source Matters, and soon was tasked with the role of Treasurer in the project. After a full year of working in both the CLT and OSM at the same time, Paul has stepped down from his CLT position to focus his efforts on his newly elected position as OSM President.

JoomStew Radio has been on a break through the Holidays, but this week we're back with a bang with one of our best shows yet.
Joomla 1.6.0 was released on Monday, January 10, 2011 and we were there to celebrate late into the night with a bunch of folks.
Today, to celebrate the delivery of Joomla 1.6.0, JoomStew Radio welcomes Joomla Lead Developer Andrew Eddie, and Ryan Ozimek, President of Open Source Matters (OSM) to discuss the release, the project and what's next for Joomla and OSM.
