Pitching in at LinuxWorld SF 2007

It’s been a full year (I know, I can’t believe it either) since I had a chance to meet many of the Joomla! folks in person at LinuxWorld SF 2006, so it was great to see Johan, Louis, Rob, and others from the Joomla! community in LinuxWorld SF 2007 this last week.

This year’s three day conference was a great opportunity to share with visitors the work the core team and patch contributors have been doing with Joomla 1.5 RC, as well as meeting new faces in the community from the Joomla! Bay Area community. I also had help this year from another PICnetter, Katie, who joined me in staffing the booth, as can be seen in our stunning Joomla-spectacular outfits below (photo courtesy of our friend Ron Severdia – which reminds me, Shakespeare fans should take a look at Ron’s masterpiece, Play Shakespeare.com, built using Joomla!).

Thanks to everyone at the conference who came to see us, including the folks from IBM and our friends across the floor at FreeBSD! Good times had by all.

  1. Sure was fun. You should have seen the DIY Joomla! shirt I decked out for the fancy female I am (not pictured). It was fit for a couture auction. ;) However, fashion aside, I enjoyed learning more about the Joomla! project and meeting the masterminds behind the operation. The benevolence and idealism was inspiring.

    Let’s give kudos to the Project for the new addition too! Welcome back Andrew- hope to see you on our side of the hemisphere sometime.
