Joomla Detroit Discussions Have Moved

Great things are happening at Joomla Detroit, and to each and every member, I'd like to say thank you for being part of this amazing revitalization!

google-groups-logoThis post is specifically written to introduce our new Google Groups Discussion Board! Google groups provides a versatile and high-visability forum to discuss topics, ask questions or show off work.

With the addition of Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google plus page and now, Google Groups, many of you are wondering why we have so many venues. Simply, each serves a seperate purpose and appeals to different types of people.

Facebook - is generally used as a community where members and enthusiasts can share their work and get updates on JoomlaDetroit.com's latest articles posted.

Twitter - can spur quick public discussion, messaging to and from the group (make sure to follow hashtag #JUGDet for updates) and throughout the Joomla community.

Google Plus - while much like Facebook in some ways, the G+ page serves as the streaming site where those who cannot attend meetups can tune in and participate from home.

Google Groups - specifically deployed as a forum where both members and individuals can message and have longer discussions than on Twitter and Facebook.

Once again, all: I want to personally thank you for being a part of Joomla Detroit, the fastest growing open source CMS meetup group in Michigan!

See you on April 10 when we have special guest speaker, Gabe Wahhab of Savvy Panda talk about social media and inbound marketing!

    Last month I attended the Joomla World Conference #JWC17 in Rome, Italy. Since my first JWC visit to Vancouver last year, I've joined a couple of global teams including Showcase, Certification and the Joomla Community Magazine (JCM), where I help out with things like moderation, English-language proof reading and documentation. This year, in addition to the actual conference, I also got to attend some team meetings prior to and during the conference.

  • Episode IV - A new User Interface for the Joomla Backend

    Displaying items by tag: English Dec 5, 2017 | 11:01 am

    On November 17, the first Alpha for Joomla 4 was released. Whilst this release was intended for developers to check their extensions as soon as possible for their compatibility the Joomla 4 User Interface Team has something nice in store for you. In the last few years, we have been planning, discussing and drafting different concepts of the Joomla 4 backend. First of all: the chance to work on the overall backend user interface is a really big honour for us and we say thank you to all those that welcome us to such a great team. It’s a pleasure to work with such passionate people. Our challenge was to design a backend that mostly fits into the given technical structure of Joomla and to change as much as needed, but as little as possible. We want to invite you to take a ride through the draft of the Joomla[…]
