Core developers to address Joomla event near Australian Linux Conf

Two core members of the development team of Web content management system Joomla - Brad Baker and Sam Moffatt - will be talking to the Melbourne Joomla Community about a range of new features and progress with Joomla! 1.5 at a special event being held to coincide with the Australian Linux Conference in Melbourne next month.

Melbourne JoomlaDay 08 is targeted at both users and developers, according to the organisers, who believe 2008 will see the Australian Joomla! community maturing like Joomla itself. With Melbourne and Sydney User Groups now established (www.joomladay.org.au) and others on the way.

In addition to the Joomla speakers, Damian Hickey from Open Freeway will be showing off a new project integrating the Open Freeway eCommerce platform with Joomla. In addition, Leslie Hawthorn from the Google Open Participation Contest, a collaborative effort between Google and a nukmber of open source projects to get young people interested in open source development, will talk about how the Joomla projects in the contest have been going.

Other presenters will walk through tutorials on Joomla installation tips and template design. Attendees can also put tough questions they may have to the panel on the day to get expert advice that the organisers claim money can't usually buy - but the four hour event will cost just AUD$25.

JoomlaDay 08 will be held on 2 Feb 2008, from 1-5pm, with registration opening at 11:30am. The venue will be The University of Melbourne, Old Arts lecture theatre D, chosen because of its close proximity to the Linux Conf Open Day Exhibition.

For online registration, visit https://melbourne.joomladay.org.au. And of course sponsorships and free software giveaways will be welcomed by the organisers.
