This first session was a warm-up for Dianne and Sandra to get the party started early at Joomla Day Chicago held August 10th and 11th at the Chicago Marriott Midway.
To kick things off, Mike Demopoulos discusses how Sengistix not only uses Joomla for their consumer facing website, but also use Joomla for a customized secure intranet that allows their staff at the Sengistix response center to have a single point of contact to find any data they might need to assist an individual in an emergency. Listen in to learn more about how Joomla helped to make this possible.
The second half of this show is a great conversation with Tenko and Tina from www.siteground.com about what Joomla site owners should look for in a hosting provider and then moves into a discussion that highlights the comraderie and openness of the Joomla community. Oh, and drinking... there just might be drinking in the Joomla Community as well.
This week's JoomStew Radio features the upcoming Joomla Day Chicago organizer Mike Carson. We sat down with Mike to find out what's going on with this year's 2 day Joomla Business Conference and Learning Expo.
With over 30 speakers scheduled between both days, it's sure to be a world class event you won't want to miss. Day 1 is geared toward larger corporate enterprise and education solutions that are using Joomla within their businesses. Day 2 is focused on the users and site integraters and will be more like a typical unconference style event.
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!
