That was the Swiss Joomla!Day

Written by Soeren Eberhardt-Biermann on .

Yesterday I returned from Zurich after I had been visiting the first-ever Swiss Joomla!Day in Lucerne on saturday.

I think the event was a great success for both - speakers and visitors. The organization was excellent and the location was also very nice (directly above the train station where the trains arrive).

I had the chance to meet Wilco Jansen (Development Team Coordinator of Joomla!), Beat (head of the Community Builder team), Yannick Goultier (Developer of sh404SEF), Ivo of the Joom!Fish team, Angie Radtke (accessible web sites - http://der-auftritt.de ) and Johan Janssens (of JoomlaTools , who quickly disappeared before lunch and didn't join the final discussion!).

I talked with all of them - especially with Beat, Yannick and Ivo - because it's important that their extensions work nicely together with VirtueMart. Beat told me about a CB plugin for VirtueMart integration and I think I should talk to Bob (maybe I can help?). Ivo is going to send me small changes to make Joom!Fish work with VM 1.1.

A big "Thank you!" goes out to Pete Coutts, head of the Joomla! association in Switzerland and his team for organizing this event! See you next year. I also hope that the German Community will come up with a Joomla!Day next year (there was none in 2007 + 2008).
