Joomla 3.0: There Is No Spoon
Focus on the challenges facing Joomla from a perspective of the administrative user interface. Following a brief comparison of the recent user interface changes in Mambo/Joomla and WordPress, Victor will summarize where Joomla is headed for the next iteration of the publishing platform, Joomla 3.0.
The presentation will be heavy on ‘eye-candy’ for Joomla 3.0 — due in September 2012 — and will describe the challenges and opportunities for end users, site implementors, designers and add-on developers.
Victor is the Founder and CEO of Anything Digital, a well-known Joomla development shop based in Sussex, Wisconsin. His portfolio boasts some of the most popular add-ons for Joomla including SEO and calendaring tools such as sh404SEF and JCal Pro, respectively.
Victor is also a volunteer in the Joomla project and serves/has served on numerous committees including the Joomla Extensions team that manages the official directory for Joomla add-ons and and more recently the Joomla Events team. He has helped organize the J and Beyond international developer conference since January 2011 — including the May 2012 event in Germany — and co-organizes the local Joomla User Group Milwaukee held on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
