Joomla! Revolution!

After faithfully serving the wider Melbourne Joomla community, the JoomlaMUG site is being reborn as the penultimate industry based hub for all things Joomla across Melbourne.

Why is this so?

This site has held the same position on major search engines since launch, and it's time to give something back to the community. This will benefit businesses, resellers, designers and end users of Joomla across Melbourne, Victoria and Australia.

This will include
  • SEO training for Joomla
  • Site critiques of new Australian Joomla based (or sister codebase) sites
  • A better job board, allowing reputation management between studios and clients.

Last week I learnt how to get started on writing my own component.

September's Sydney User Group meeting happened to be on while I was up there for work, so I called by last Tuesday to meet some Joomla folk in the Emerald City and see what Greg had to teach us about writing components.

Joomla 1.5 Training in Melbourne

Written by Matthias
Friday, 17 August 2007
Andrew Eddie (Joomla core developer) and Dinah Randall are going to be running some Joomla 1.5 training events for Joomla implementors/designers/developers (as opposed to end users, who come later). They are currently going for one-day events in Sydney and Brisbane, and are also open to running one in Melbourne, if there is demand.

If anyone is interested in a formal training day for 1.5 can you please register you interest here:

The draft programme for the day can be seen here:

Melbourne will probably be late November but they'll need a good indication of numbers to be able to go ahead.
