Next weekend, the Australian Joomla community will be getting together at JoomlaDay Sydney 2014.
This is the only Joomla conference in Australia this year, and will have representitives from all our Australian Joomla communities. We are also flying in the vice president of open source matters Rod Martin, who will be giving our keynote and also running a hands on Sunday workshop.
This conference is for people of all skill levels, and anyone who users Joomla or wants to find out more about it should attend.
We start out the weekend with a Friday night preconference social event. This will bring together not only the Joomla community, but also other open source groups such as WordPress, Drupal, and Product maverns. The preconference social event is free to attend, but you must register to get your ticket.
On Saturday we have a full day conference with two streams, covering a variety of topics. This is followed by an after party where the conference attendees can debrief over a few beers, and get to know the community better.
We have full day and half day Sunday workshops, where you can learn in a classroom environment some hands on Joomla skills to take you to that next level.
