Nine Fantastic Workshops

Even though I wrote about the line up for the Joomladay just a few weeks ago, I thought it was worth reminding you of how incredible this event promises to be.

Come and say Hi.

One of the strange things about running a web based business, is that it's rare that we get to meet our users face to face.

I wrote about how refreshing it is to actually sit with people and talk about Joomla after going to my inaugural Joomladay late last year in Sydney. Meeting people face to face helps to place people in context, gives a body and sometimes a face to an avatar, and is a good reminder that while the work we do is highly technical and mediated by technology, it is ultimately for people who live in the real world.

So if you live in Melbourne, or Australia for that matter, come along and say hi!
