Here we are at the Blenz coffee in Yaletown, Downtown Vancouver, BC. This is me ( Rastin Mehr – Joomla! Development Work Group Member ) and Ash (www.Peerglobe.com) joining our other team-mates around the world. We have all been working for the last couple days from Brussels, Washington DC, New York, and San Francisco. We are connecting through IRC channels as a group effort to fix bugs in the next released of Joomla! CMS verion 1.5 the best open source content management system on the face of planet.
There are currently 42 people on the IRC channel working. For those of you who would like to join us in Vancouver you can contact me right now on my cell: 778 885 0807 or skyp me: webarchitect
You can also join our party virtually on the IRC: #joomlapbf@freenode

I bet if the Ruby on Rails community finds out that I am converting to Joomla! they will cast me out.(lol)
No but seriously I think Joomla! framework and Rails have a lot in common and I couldn’t be happier for joining this team. Also Thanks to Rastin and his community-driven mind for getting all of us together.
Anyway good luck to you all and let’s hope this type of event becomes a norm within the open source community.
Can’t wait to get the new framework out Ash! Joomla 1.5 has been written from ground up based on a completely new MVC Architecture. Way more advanced compare to the 5 year old design in the Joomla 1.0
What I like about this framework is the fact that a business can have a CMS powered website today, and later on convert it to a company Intranet, or Social Networking and online community. This is an ideal modular solution for many organizations who decide not to go for an over bloated expensive applications offered by some software vendors.
You can actually see us on the live webcam here: http://www.mebeam.com/myroom.php?PBF_2007
Nice! Vancouver’s got style! Thanks for all you guys are contributing to the Joomla! community!
Thank you so much Amy! we are really enjoying this event. People here are dropping by to say hello to us.
This has been a great event – I look forward to more in the future… There must be lots more Joomla people out there in Vancouver, hope to see them at the next event.
Thank you Ash and Gwyn for participating. That was a fun weekend wasn’t it? 😀
