Joomla! ... because open source matters

You may notice that JenTekk is becoming more and more involved in activities surrounding Joomla – as a participant and sponsor.

This is in part due to the fact that I adore the product – sure call me a Joomlarette if you want to! In addition, any projects that Rastin Mehr (from rmd Studio) and I collaborate on almost always involve using Joomla CMS. Rastin’s the fella that got me hooked on Joomla. I’m okay with this!

So I’d like to inform you of our next event: Vancouver Joomla DemoCamp

Hey! I attended my very first ever Joomla event this past Saturday - namely the Vancouver Joomla DocCamp - which JenTekk sponsored and co-hosted. With no expectations other than to meet people, have fun, play with and write about Joomla 1.5, it did not disappoint.

Joomla! DocCamp is an exciting community effort, where a number of Joomla Developers and writers will be getting together to write documentation for the new Joomla! 1.5 framework.

Joomla! Doc camp will be happening simultaneously in many cities around the globe. So far, Vancouver BC, Brussels, and Washington DC have indicated they will be involved in this great community event.

January 19th Joomla! DocCamp

We will be collaborating and writing documentation for Joomla, and having fun in the process. There will be live Blogging, Flickring, posted YouTube videos, interviews with the participants, and possibly a live video stream so that our counter-parts around the world can join us (virtually) in the fun!

JenTekk is happy to have been asked back by the British Columbia Library Association to create the 2007 Kids Summer Reading Club website. With the 2006 website under our belt, we were excited to see what the theme would be this year, and looked forward to the artist's creative work - our inspiration for the website's look & feel.

Kids Summer Reading Club 2006

The Club theme changes every year with the theme Catch the Reading Bug for 2007. In addition, the program also hires a different local artist to draw the required illustrations. Ashley Spires was chosen to design the artwork for 2007.

The 2007 Kids Summer Reading Club is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association and your local public library with the assistance of the Public Library Services Branch, Ministry of Education, Shirley Bond, Minister.

The Kids Summer Reading Club is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, where each summer over 80,000 kids head down to their local public library, sign up, and join the fun.

Kids Summer Reading Club 2006

The Club theme changes every year with the theme Extreme Reading for 2006. The program also hires a different local artist to draw the required illustrations. This year the artist is Kirsti Wakelin from right here in Vancouver.

The Kids SRC website itself plays a significant roll in the success of this program through online quizzes, links to interesting websites, book lists, games, downloadable coloring pages and so much more.

Designing a site for the kids is a blast with all the bright colors, humorous illustrations and creative freedom, but knowing this enables them learn to read better... that's priceless.

Thank you BLCA for bringing me on board to design the 2006 BC Summer Reading Club - it was "Extremely Fun"!

A little bit more about me!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm Jeannette Duguay - known as Jen by my peers. I like to work hard, and I also like to play hard.

To me 'playing' means enjoying new experiences, and learning new things.

Even more so, playing is helping and empowering people, connecting with friends, having meaningful heart-to-heart conversations, and solving the world's problems... always accompanied by coffee and bon-bons.

Jeannette Duguay

As founder of TAZZU® Business Networking Community and JenTekk Web Solutions, I wear several different hats. Yet, none are as important to me as wife, daughter, sister and friend.

Some would also describe me as a woman of faith, a slave to my creativity, fanatical about hot yoga, and having a large appetite for adventure and food of almost any kind. I'd say that's pretty accurate.

Here's a bit of my story!

Musician and singer

Music has always been a passion of mine. I taught myself to play guitar during my elementary years and eventually took lessons - following a few years of piano lessons.

After years of listening to music delivered on every form of music media available to man, including 8 Tracks, and taking vocal lessons followed by a smattering of performances, I ventured out and recorded my own 6 song EP. Two local radio stations even spun my disc.
