Joomla User Group

2/27/2013 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

The Melbourne Joomla User Group has been running since 2007 and attracts a regular group of Joomla users from all over Melbourne including:

beginners - people building their first joomla site

hobbyists - people tweaking their own joomla site

designers - people who design joomla sites for a living

implementers - people who implement more than just basic joomla sites

eg ecommerce, forums, interfaces etc

guns - people who can answer almost any question you may have about Joomla!

Often members are 'multi-functional' with several specialists in hosting, design, security and more.

Meeting monthly (current venue Swinburne Uni at Hawthorn) we cover a number of joomla topics that ideally provide all members of the group with something each month. Additionally we're planning a few other meetups during the year with skypecasts with joomla luminaries, doccamp/barcamp style events, training workshops, and JoomlaDay! Melbourne every few years.

You can also participate in more discussion, find out more on the Group, and get joomla tips and assistance in the forums by visiting /melbourne-joomla-user-group
