Hello fellow Joomla lovers,
Couple of items today:
1. We've got two workshops coming up:
See https://www.eventbrite.com/e/workshop-bundle-joomla-migration-8914-and-joomla-templates-91314-tickets-11954509259 for more details and to register.
2. There is a pretty icky thing going around lately from a company called JoomlaCheap. Apparently they are doing what we think is unethical and wrong. They are taking third-party extensions and selling them as their own. This has terrible ramifications for everyone and they should be avoided even if you are tempted to purchase these extensions for the reduced rate. We implore you to not be tempted as our happy Open Source infrastructure won't remain that way without us doing our part.
Duke Speer has written an absolutely excellent article in this regard in this months Joomla! Community Magazine. Check it out PLEASE and avoid buying third-party extensions from anyone other than the developer themselves. Support our wonderful devs!
Hope to see you at the migration and/or template workshop!!
p.s. hitting reply to this email will reply to the entire mailing list for our group. :)
