Events - Reconnect with Joomla

The Sessions

The plan for the content side of Reconnect with Joomla is to mix things up to have more than the usual presentation style sessions to get more people involved in each session across a much broader range of Joomla related topics for the weekend. We are going to be trying out different formats and style for sessions to find out what works and what doesn't and be flexible enough to have repeat or follow up sessions whether by popular demand or a clash in sessions. We are also looking to have smaller multiple sessions running concurrently that targets a specific audience to avoid that eye glazing look the designers have when the programmers start talking and vise versa.

The topics shown here maybe a prepared presentation that someone has generously offered to present to little more than a topic heading that we are hoping one or more people might have some knowledge to share and let us know they would like to be involved in that session.

If you have suggestions for other formats you have experienced at other events thne please let us know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
