  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
