Joomla! Day South Africa – Durban

The South African Joomla! community is pleased to invite you to the first Joomla! Day South Africa – Durban, an event to be held June 20 and 21, 2008, at the Varsity College, Durban North. Durban is the third largest city in South Africa, a popular destination for tourists, and considered to be the busiest port on the African continent. It is an ideal location for those interested in Joomla! to gather.

Joomla! Days offer an excellent opportunity to learn, network with other Joomla! users and developers, and discover ways to contribute to the Joomla! Project. The South African Joomla! community has been hard at work to ensure that this year’s Joomla! Day event is at least as informative and fun as the three previous successful South African events held during 2007.

The Joomla! Day South Africa – Durban Agenda presents two full days of activities:

Day 1: Business Community Day—The agenda for Friday, June 20, is designed around the needs of the business community. Those who have roles like Web master, business decision maker and marketing manager will find helpful, relevant topics. The Business Community Day is a non-technical event focused on helping make a business case for using Joomla. If you need help and information to determine whether or not Joomla is suitable for your business, this session for you.

Day 2: User Community Day—The agenda for Saturday, June 21, is focused on the Joomla! user community. This is a technical and business session, covering topics of interest for those who set up and manage Web sites for themselves or clients. Topics on this day will cover Web site security, migration, templating, extensions, hosting and business strategies for Web site developers.

Joomla! Day South Africa events are run by the Joomla! Southern African Community Portal, a non-profit organization. Register online now to attend. Your registration includes refreshments, a Joomla! t-shirt and an information packet.

Joomla! Days are well-attended worldwide. A key benefit of attendance is the opportunity to connect with members of the Joomla! community, including speakers, designers, Web site builders and developers. We wish the very best and an enjoyable Joomla! Day event to our South African Joomla! community.
