joomla world conferenceThe second Joomla World Conference is due to take place in November this year and will be held at Harvard University in Boston on 8-10 of the month.

This year’s focus will be on networking, knowledge, sharing and community and is the biggest Joomla event in the world. The conference is tailored towards the Joomla community and the “spirit of open source technologies”.

Networking

This will include the attendance of vendors and event sponsors and will be available over two levels of the venue space. Attendees will get the chance to chat with their favourite vendors and it’s thought that many of the vendors will have special offers and some free offers. Vendors and sponsors will also be available for questions and consultations too.

Knowledge

At the second Joomla World Conference, the organisers are reaching to educational faculties in order to encourage students and local universities to get to know the CMS software. Anyone in the local area that is interested, be it a teacher or student, should get in touch with the organisers for further details, or visit the conference website.

This is an ideal opportunity for students who are interested in becoming a developer and want to learn how to use Joomla.

Sharing

According to event website, the ‘sharing’ aspect of the event is designed for those devs who have formed a relationship over Skype chats, forums or mailing lists to meet each other in person.

At a recent Joomla event, one of the organisers overheard a conversation which likened events of this kind to a “family reunion”. This underlines the fact that Joomla is a strong community and a relatively close knit group, but one that opens newcomers with welcome arms.

Submit a Session

Anyone can speak at the conference and calls for speakers began last week. Prospective speakers should consider if the subject they want to talk about is appropriate, thinking beyond the obvious. The event is looking for innovative speakers who can really inform, educate and engage with the Joomla developer audience.

Tickets for the event are already on sale on the conference website at the special early bird price of $249 for 3-day entry.
