Joomla! has received a CMS Critic award 4 times in a row. A great big thank you to everyone who helped make this happen.

Thanks to CMS Critic for the organization of the yearly competition and the constant follow up of the CMS scene.

Thank you to the entire Joomla! Community who supports and collaborates every day in the development of the platform. A 100% volunteer oriented organization faces lots of challenges to keep up with the fast paced evolution of technology. Way to pitch in everyone.

Finally, an acknowledgment to the commited core team of developers and testers who recently raised the bar of the content definition on Joomla! introducing Custom Fields for Articles, Users and more. The new Custom Fields are a game changer and reshapes the definition of our CMS ecosystem.

Looking forward to the 2018 awards. More amazing features are on the way!

I’m very happy to announce that the Vancouver Joomla Day event was well attended with over 120 people eager to learn about Joomla CMS.

Joomla Day Vancouver

Registration started at 9:00am. Attendees were given a raffle ticket, t-shirt (for those who RSVP'd in time) and Joomla Day name tag. What a friendly bunch. I got to meet each of them as I assisted Wendy (main organizer) with the registration process.

Coffee, tea muffins and cookies were in abundance thanks to Bread Garden, who also catered lunch with yummy wraps and subs.
