Joomla Day Chicago 2012

Learnings and Take-Aways of a Great Joomla Day Chicago!

Let's just start with the facts:

  1. 2 Days
  2. Over 20 Sessions
  3. Over 120 Attendees
  4. Over 15 Major Sponsors, including Diamond Sponsor Arc Technology Group
  5. Microsoft and Open Source Keynote

The day one keynote by Microsoft's Grace Francisco opened the minds of many die hard Linux Joomla users and developers to the open source tools and programs offered by Microsoft.

Joomla 3.0 Preview

Brain Teeman provided a fantastic update of where Joomla has been and where it's going. Joomla has almost 10,000 extensions on the Joomla Extensions Directory, supports 64 world languages, and has been download over 30,000,000 times. With all this activity, support, acceptance and utilization, Joomla could rest easy but 3.0 is on the way. The preview showed the all new Twitter Bootstrap core that drives a responsive and mobile user interface and user experience. This is the future of web content management and Joomla is leading the charge.

Cloud Services

Robert Jacobi of Arc Technology Group and Brian Prince of Microsoft, discussed in separate presentations from a business and technical point of view the benefits of migrating to the cloud and the ease of doing so.

Overall Joomla Day Chicago was a resounding success and we look forward to Joomla Day Chicago 2013!
