The Joomla User Group Melbourne has been running since 2007 and attracts a regular group of Joomla® users from all over Melbourne including:
beginners - people building their first Joomla site
hobbyists - people tweaking their own Joomla site
designers - people who design Joomla sites for a living
implementers - people who implement more than just basic Joomla sites eg ecommerce, forums, interfaces etc
guns - people who can answer almost any question you may have about Joomla.
Often members are 'multi-functional' with several specialists in hosting, design, security and more.
Meeting monthly (current venue Butterfly (https://www.butterfly.com.au/)'s office in Melbourne CBD - see venue details on each meetup) we cover a number of Joomla topics that ideally provide all members of the group with something each month.
Additionally we're planning a few other meetups during the year with skypecasts with Joomla luminaries, doccamp/barcamp style events, training workshops, and assisting with JoomlaDay Australia (https://www.facebook.com/JoomlaAu/) conference every few years.
