JoomlaDay Chicago Colorful Arrows

Joomla’s ease-of-use and extensibility have made it the most popular website software available. Because of its open source nature, a community of world-wide users has emerged to support the Joomla! end user. Joomla Day is the premier gathering of these individuals, including web designers, site managers and other Joomla users—from novice to experienced—for a day-long conference.

Joomla Day events are held throughout the world, with only one conference permitted to take place on any given day. This unique feature allows attendees to choose the Joomla Day location and date of most convenience to them. This year, Joomla Day took place near Chicago on Saturday, September 23, at the DePaul University's O'Hare Campus in Rosemont, Illinois.

At JoomlaDay Chicago, industry presenters shared their expertise and passion for Joomla! and covered a wide variety of topics for both new and experienced Joomla users. Attendees had a professional and friendly environment with opportunities for broadening their knowledge, networking with the Joomla! community, and connecting with current and potential clients.

Every aspect of Joomla! —from programming, development, planning, and more—is time donated from web professionals worldwide.
