What better place to organize the Joomla! World Conference than a country where the CMS is very popular and a city that is marvelous? Of course, all roads leads to Rome.
The event took place in the Sheraton Hotel, near the city center and was very well organized. We were impressed how the Joomla! Community was so nice to each other.
We had the pleasure of being one of this year’s conference sponsors. We liked the idea of collecting stamps, which attendees had to collect from all of the sponsors to participate in a lottery to win prizes.
This gave us the opportunity to speak with lots of people who already knew about our services and some who did not. Hopefully we convinced some to swap their hosting and partner with us - If so, we welcome you on board!
We were able to participate in a few sessions as well. One of our favourites was: „Why add an extension if you can do it in core?” by Hugh Douglas-Smith (JED Review Manager), where we were able to learn some Joomla! Tricks that we didn’t know even existed.
Also, there were a lot of discussions on Joomla’s future, including the 4.0 release. OSM members revealed some secrets and also showed us screenshots of the early alpha release of Joomla.
We hope that you enjoyed the conference as much as we did and that you liked our booth.
