Melbourne JUG Feb Meeting :: Wed 20/02/08 6:30-8:30 pm CBD

Post by mraab » Tue Aug 07, 2007 3:43 am

Dear all,

The Joomla MUG is meeting again! I am proposing to hold our next meeting on Thursday, 23 August from 6:30-8pm at Food Inc at 360 Elisabeth St (wireless internet available). Map. The event is also on our website at www.joomlamug.org. Please register through this  website or reply to this thread.

Lawrence, who organized this meeting in the past, moved interstate. While he volunteered me to take over the Melbourne chapter of the Joomla community, I really look forward to meeting you all at one stage. The next meeting should be all about:
  • networking
  • meeting other joomla developers
  • meeting joomla end users
  • discussing hot topics
  • 1.5 training for developers
  • training for end users
  • merging with other Australian Joomla User Groups
  • and much more
If you have any other item you would like to see on the agenda, please let me know.

I also like to mention that Dinah, who looks after the Sydney User Group, runs an important survey on a Joomla 1.5 workshop for developers. If you haven’t done already, please complete the survey on http://joomladay.org.au/phpsurveyor/index.php?sid=1. Dinah and I also discussed the idea of hosting all Australian Joomla User Groups under one roof. Have a few thoughts about this.

I look forward to seeing you on 23 August.

Best wishes,
Matthias

Melbourne JUG Feb Meeting :: Wed 20/02/08 6:30-8:30 pm CBD

Post by mraab » Wed Feb 06, 2008 5:50 am

The next Melbourne Joomla User Group meeting is on Wed, 20 Feb 6:30 - 8:30.

Depending on numbers, it will most likely be at The University of Melbourne. If you intend to come, please drop a line in this Forum or at http://www.joomladay.org.au. The sooner the better...

Major topic for this meeting is Joomla hosting. I like to test ride and demonstrate the pros and cons of different providers, look into their backend and see what they have to offer.

Please come forward and show/tell us about your Joomla host and why you would, or not, recommend them. Godaddy and Rochen are already on the list. We can also demonstrate manual Joomla 1.5 installations for beginners.
