Joomla Day UK. What can we say... Lots of value slightly haphazardly put together. Awesome in the end. But that's what makes Joomla.... errrrm Joomla. An awesome platform and CMS with outstanding features which we think blows Wordpress and Drupal out of the water - - but has been badly marketed over the years so hasn't got the traction it deserves.
Oh we love Joomla!
So, once we had actually found the venue (yes... no sign outside and we nearly got distracted by a greasy spoon breakfast) the day was pretty amazing. Some awesome seminars and talks. For us, the security talk by Nicholas K. Dionysopoulos of https://www.akeebabackup.com/ fame was the best as well as getting to know some people form the London Joomla User Group (JUG).
The day ran to clockwork - with a great event brochure explaining what was happening and when... and copious amounts of coffee, cakes as well as a great lunch.
The final talk about "the future of Joomla" was pretty disappointing. There is a lot to do and the the Joomla Community is being very patient. But we still believe in the project.
