A great quote from a recent article in the New York Times concerning the recent Heartbleed bug and the OpenSSL project says:
“Open source is not magic fairy dust” that happens automatically, said Tim O’Reilly, an early advocate of open source and the founder of O’Reilly Media. “It happens because people work at it.”
Not only is Open Source projects like Joomla "... not magic fairy dust", but neither do any of us walk around with "magic wands". The way to survive, or even thrive, is to combine and share our energies, knowledge and "best practices".
We will meet in the conference room, at the Office of Silicon Valley, which is to your right when you come in the side door.
We look forward to seeing everyone there. If you are driving, or need a ride, please add a comment to the Meetup for this post and "come one, come all"!
