The Marketing Team Needs Your Input!
Starting with Joomla 3 it was decided that jQuery was going to be included in the core much like mootools was included in the core in past versions of Joomla. Many hailed this as a great decision (including myself) due to jQuery’s great features and it’s widespread use on some of the biggest websites in the world.
The Marketing Working Group (MWG) is pleased to announce the addition of a new team member. We welcome Mike Veeckmans on board the Marketing team!

Are you interested in helping spread the word about Joomla and our latest 3.4 release? We'd love your help! It's fun and easy to do. It's also a great opportunity to make friends from around the world, gain experience working with one of the world's most powerful brands in the world.
2014 was an amazing year for the Joomla! Certification Project. In the past year we’ve gathered leaders and team members from across the world, launched a successful pilot program at the Joomla! World Conference 2014, cultivated serious discussions with the Joomla community and have moved closer than ever to a viable, live professional certification for Joomla! Administrators.
As you may already know, Joomla 2.5 reached its end of life at the end of December 2014. Because official Joomla 2.5 support has been discontinued, we are also discontinuing our Joomla 2.5 extensions. All of our current J2.5 extensions will still be available they just will not be receiving some of the great and innovative updates that are coming to many of our Joomla 3.x extensions.
I have an important message to share with you regarding Joomla’s participation in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) this year. Unfortunately due to circumstances out of our control, Joomla was not accepted to participate in GSoC 2015.
Don't let anyone tell you that you are too inexperienced to speak at a conference – everyone has something to share. Do you really think that people were born as speakers – everyone has to speak for the first time. The thought of speaking in front of an audience can be scary even for experienced speakers. It requires a lot of planning, preparation and practice – don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
There are several Joomla Events throughout the next few months. Hopefully there’s an event near you to help you connect and do more with Joomla. Joomla! User Group (JUG) meetings and JoomlaDays are intended for everyone from casual users to core developers. Visit the Joomla! Events site to browse all events, submit an event or learn how to organize your own event.
JoomlaDay South Africa is scheduled for March 6th and 7th at The Kelway Hotel. Rates are fair and organizers suggest registering early to avoid missing out. There are only a few days remaining to register for JoomlaDay Port Elizabeth. Learn more.
