This week JoomStew does some globe-trotting to find out how Joomla User Groups (JUGs) have been celebrating the launch of Joomla 1.6. The result is a fun window into our world-wide communities - it's a show you won't want to miss! But first up, check out our big announcement in the news below!
JoomStew Announces Matias and Beyond 2011
Matias Aguirre has contributed quite a lot of time developing the jUpgrade migration component that will take you from 1.5 to 1.6. We here at JoomStew are putting out a call to the Joomla! Community to encourage you to give something back. You can make a contribution to send Matias to JandBeyond 2011 in May.
We have set up a Chip-in widget to raise $2500 by March 1, 2011. This money goes directly to Matias’ paypal account in order for him to arrange his travel and lodging. He will not be able to attend this event without our help and we feel that he is giving so much to the Joomla! community and we should all give a little something back!
This week's JoomStew Radio continues with our Joomla 1.6 release theme, but this time our focus is on what it will take to migrate your website from Joomla 1.5 to 1.6.
First up is Kyle Ledbetter, who's been leading the current Joomla.org redesign, as well as owner/designer/developer for AdminPraise, who creates killer admin templates for Joomla.
Joining him today is Jeremy Wilken who is the lead developer for Joomlashack and has a personal blog at gnomeontherun.com where he shares his personal views on what's happening in the Joomla Community.
It's a great show, with alot of useful information about the changes to the framework, extensions and templates for Joomla 1.6. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did this week!
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.
