This is a basic overview of Joomla! and we'll be using Joomla! 2.5. If you're new to Joomla, this session may answer many of your questions. Some people get Joomla! installed and then get stuck on the "What now?" obstacle. This session will introduce you to some of Joomla's basic concepts and help you overcome some of those initial hurdles.
The conference link is https://www.bigmarker.com/joomladallas/virtual Please sign in a few minutes early in order to resolve any technical difficulties.
Discussions will be via VOIP (Voice Over IP) and chat during the meeting. If you don't have a microphone or a headset, you can still communicate via chat. To hear the session, you will need either a headset or speakers. (Obviously, you have built-in speakers if you have a laptop.) I will mute all others during parts of the presentation, but will open up microphones for questions at various points. This is because sometimes there is feedback or extraneous noise that can distract others.
