Community Blog


Ever wished you could support the developers who devote themselves to making Joomla one of the leading Open Source CMS? Now you can! Joomla has joined the GitHub Sponsored Organization Program.

Joomla is a community and a software product - one cannot exist without the other.The Re-Engage & Re-Ignite team brainstormed a number of topics centered around increasing people’s awareness of Joomla and encouraging them to get involved.

Joomla for All

The web has completely changed since its birth, 25 years ago. It has changed from a small niche group of users to a global user base in just a few years. Out have sprung the giants of Tech and the tools to produce and manage ever more content online. Over that time the ecosphere of web creation tools has changed. For example the advent of mobile phones has forced us to change the way we build our websites. Joomla has also had to evolve over the years to stay alive. Even a strong community and good quality code is not enough to keep your place in this competitive world. 

Professionalising the Joomla Organisation

Over the weekend of January 17-19, 2020, a group of Joomla enthusiasts from around the world were invited to participate in the Joomla Forum For The Future, in Marbella, Spain. Under the guidance of several facilitators invitees were tasked with envisioning the path forward for Joomla under four broad streams - Market, Community Re-engagement and Re-igniting, Technology, and Professionalism.

Saturday the 19th october 2019 saw Pizza, Bugs and Fun sessions all around the world.  It was amazing, truly amazing!
