  • Joomla Will Be At The Madison PHP Conference - Come Join Us

    The Joomla project is sponsoring the 2015 Madison PHP Conference as Conference Partner. The conference is being held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin (USA), Saturday, November 14th, 2015.

    Madison PHP provides support, education, and networking opportunities to PHP developers. The group is not-for- profit and run by community volunteers. Membership has been steadily increasing and is now at over 350 members.

    As part of the sponsorship, Joomla will host a booth at the conference. Representing Joomla at the booth will be Jessica Dunbar, PLT, and Robbie Adair.

    A Joomla related session will be delivered by Robbie Adair of Media A-Team of Houston TX, entitled ‘Building Custom Applications With Fabrik’. Fabrik is a popular Joomla extension that provides a framework to rapidly and easily build Joomla based web applications.

    The event focuses on PHP and related web technologies. It is organized by Madison PHP and offers something to attendees at all skill levels. If you are available, it promises to be a day of networking, learning, sharing, and great fun!

    We would really love to meet up with community members at the Madison PHP Conference, so if you’re planning to attend do let us know, and drop by the booth to say hello!

  • Call for volunteers: Trademark & Licensing Working Group (TLWG)

    The trademark team manages and defends Joomla-related trademarks and licensing on behalf of the the Joomla Community. We want to make sure the world respects the policies and regulations we have around the use of the Joomla! name and brand mark.

    This comes with a lot of work. We need active team members that will pick up on tasks such as building our own trademark subdomain on the Joomla!-website, finetuning processes as we want to make it easy for applicants to apply online and follow their submission. Furthermore we need license administrators to take in the requests and give follow up. In time, licenses have to be checked randomly and regularly on proper use.

    Are you interested in taking part in our team? Or do you have suggestions on who would be interested in joining? Please let us know by writing a short (introduction) e-mail to our team-leader, Marco Richter (

    Most roles only require less than a couple of hours per week. No special experience is necessary. As a team we will manage. We will teach you what you need to know.

    We welcome your response!
    You can expect a reply within two business-days.
