Open Joomla and Case Studies - Sunnyvale

Let's come together in the South Bay and do some sharing.

Networking: 6:30pm (snack+drinks)

Meetup: 7:00

This meetup will have two parts:

*Open Joomla - folks can come and ask or talk anything Joomla. We'll have people of varying skill levels that can answer questions or discuss Joomla topics on whatever the group feels like talking about.

*Case studies, JoomlaDay or JWC sharing- when you RSVP, you will be asked if you would like to share a case study with the group. This will be a 15-20 minute sharing of a site you worked on, what needed solutions and how you solved them. Alternatively, if you attended JoomlaDay or the Joomla World Conference, you can share some of your personal highlights of the event. Up to four people can share.

This Joomla Event is open to all levels of users, companies looking to use Joomla for their web needs or anyone who is curious about one of the most popular CMS' in the world.

This meetup costs $5. If you are a member of the Network Directory, there is no charge - just RSVP yes and we'll take care of the rest.

Looking forward to seeing you!

    Steve W. asked me at the meetup where I go to READ when I see a security update has been released. I:

    Go to, read what they say about the release. I click all the links and read. Especially check the link for FAQs on the release. That is the page that the PLT will check to make sure those items are on the bug tracker. Go to, read the applicable forums. Because people don't always know where to post, check a bunch of them (General, Installation, Administrator and Migration & Updating). The PLT does not check the forums for bugs. It is up to people in the forums to confirm a bug and submit it to the bug tracker.

    Do a google search on the release number & the word "problems" after. Do another for "bugs" and "issues." For example:[masked] problems. THEN if there are bugs, I go make sure they are in the bug tracker at That's what I do.

    I'll be presenting on copying the look of a Jooomla 1.5 website to a Joomla 3.x website. I've posted my screenshots and presentation text here:

    Hi, instead of taking open questions, is it possible to submit questions to the moderators (James and/or Jennifer?) ahead of time so we can use the time much more efficiently and effectively?

    • Jennifer G.

      Hi Tango, that's an idea. James probably will not be there. Submitting questions would mean that only I talk and answer people's questions instead of it being a group discussion where many people can talk. If you have specific questions and don't want to attend the meetup (I see that you are not rsvp'd) then you are welcome to use the discussion forum and people can respond there. The goal of the meetup's open portion is so that as a group we can get into a dialogue. It works well. We did it in Berkeley in July and many people enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. You haven't been to a meetup yet and so I can understand you thinking that the time might not be efficient or effective. It does work nicely though being an open discussion with all in attendance. Hope you will decide to join us!
