     A little too ignorant to tell yet. This was my first course through them. I need more understanding of Joomla! 3.X templates to manage & guide the direction of the website I manage for the non-profit I have responsibility for. Since this survey has no suggestion box, I would like to see a class on how to deal with & customize Joomla! templates. But from what I saw today, only about 30% of the attendees use Joomla! Most were WordPress supporters. But CSS is applicable to all CMSs. I am going to need a lot of support in the Joomla! template space.

     Meet other Joomla developers, get tips on extensions, books, techniques. In real time, with real web developers! Thanks to James and Jenn for sharing both their technical Joomla and business expertise. . . . . . . Update Feb 2015: The above that I posted Sep 2012 is still true. About half of my work now is due to connections I made through Bay Area Joomla, both from meeting other developers and from the Developer's Directory. Jenn gets to know us developers and she asks questions of the potential client, to help assure a good match.

     If you are working with Joomla and don't attend this group you are loosing a lot. My commute to this event was 1.5 hrs each way and I still got so much new info that it was worth it.

     In a word: underutilized. With almost 500 registered users, we have the potential for a local powerhouse of Joomla enthusiasts at all levels, able to share, network and benefit from one another's experience. If you're using Joomla at any level, jump in to this group with both feet and be a part of a great thing!

     Join this group if you agree with the principles of Open Source, want to learn, share and create websites within a development environment that fits perfectly the current culture of the Internet.
