Until the upcoming release of Joomla! 3.0, Joomla! has lacked a common User Interface (UI) for components, which has led to an inconsistent User Experience (UX). The Joomla! User eXperience (JUX) group is hosting a free & live webinar on Thursday, June 7, 2012 at 16:00 - 17:00 pm UTC (click for your local time) to illustrate how the new common UI, based on Boostrap by Twitter, will affect and benefit the Joomla! community.

Joomla! User eXperience (JUX) Webinar
The JUX group is working towards creating a standard set of core UI elements for the frontend and the backend of Joomla! 3.0. Kyle Ledbetter, a principal usability engineer at Ebay and leader of the massive JUX effort, will explain how the new UI is not simply a front end or back end template, but rather a set of common UI elements for everyone. He’ll also explain how developers can contribute back to the JUI core, and help to maintain the best practice of using a common UI, if they note a missing element.
Although the project is still very much in the formative stages, Kyle will elaborate on why the new UI is needed, what it might look like, and how component developers and site administrators can expect to use it. Register Now! Space is limited. A recording of the webinar will be posted to the Joomla! Youtube Channel.
