If you have never been to the Midwestern region of the United States, a trip to Minnesota should be on your agenda this summer. On July 19, 2014, Minnesota will be hosting one of the largest Joomla events in the industry. Joomla Day Minnesota is an entire day dedicated to learning, teaching and networking with Joomla professionals.
Joomla Day Minnesota will feature lectures made by leading Joomla experts in the industry. In addition to these lectures on Joomla and future Joomla improvements, Joomla Day will also offer workshops for learners of all experience levels. Duke Speer, the Master of Ceremonies for the Joomla Day event is known to the Joomla community as a passionate website designer and advocate for not-for-profit organizations. Also joining Duke for lectures at Joomla Day are Keynote Speakers, Rod Martin, Luke Summerfield, and Victor Dover.
Joomla has established itself as a leading content management system. Built as a framework for the creation of powerful websites and online applications, Joomla has become a popular choice amongst many developers in the tech industry. Joomla has been participating in such programs as the Google Summer of Code program every summer, and has been expanding into more cities to provide more Joomla events for designers, developers and businesses.
Joomla Day hopes to encourage web developers and coders of all ages to network, learn and share ideas about the Joomla framework. Joomla has one of the largest brand communities and followings in the open source community. Members of this community share articles, techniques and current events in Joomla magazine, one of the only open source magazines in the industry. Joomla Day Minnesota is one of the newer venues for the Joomla Day community meetups, but will certainly not be the last.
