New Ideas on Outsourcing from Copyblogger

outsourcing conspiracy bannerNew Ideas on Outsourcing from CopybloggerBrian Clark and Jon Morrow over at Copyblogger just released an interesting free 31 page report about outsourcing for web entrepreneurs. I think there has definitely been a growth in the perception that outsourcing is the secret to being successful these days:

  • All the "get rich quick" gurus seem to have outsourcing as a key part of their business model
  • Overseas "rent-a-coder" type sites that offer cheap labor are becoming more and more prevalent
  • Quite a few Joomla-based shops even have outsourcing as a key aspect of running their company business
  • Even design is getting outsourced, as evident by all the PSD to HTML sites that have sprung up

Brian and Jon make the argument that outsourcing is not all that its cracked up to be, especially for those who 'they" say its best for... new people with a new idea they are trying to launch.

Joomla Day Las Vegas, Success!

JDay Las Vegas Over the past weekend I had the privilege of attending the Las Vegas Joomla! Day and the previous day's Joomla training.

Attendees were treated to an "un-conference" facilitated by the great Allen 'Gunner' Gunn, including sessions from a packed house of knowledgeable Joomla individuals. From Joomla Core Team members, Working Group members and professionals who work with Joomla on a daily basis, the talent gathered in the room was immense.

For those who've never had the chance to attend a Joomla! Day, I highly recommend looking for one near you. The events are a great opportunity to gather and learn, to share input, and to give back to the project.

Major props go to Toni Marie who organized the event, and all who attended and helped to make the event such a great success.

I can't wait to attend another!

Vote Joomla in CMS before October 20th

HURRY TO VOTE BEFORE MONDAY, OCTOBER 20th!

PacktIt's time for the third annual Open Source Content Management System Awards.

Last year, over 18,000 voters and a panel of judges named Joomla the best PHP open source CMS. Joomla lost to Drupal for best overall open source CMS. But that was before the release of Joomla 1.5.

Voting has begun for the 2008Open Source CMS Awards. Joomla has again been nominated in two categories:

Overall Open Source CMS Award

Best PHP Open Source CMS

To vote for Joomla in either of these categories, click on the links above and then click on the links for Joomla. The "vote now" button is at the bottom of the description.

At stake are bragging rights and $7,000 in prize money for the Joomla Project. So go vote!

Joomla Day New York City

Some Joomlashack friends might have stumbled upon the fact that while our small & lean team is spread all around the U.S. (Alabama, California, Pennyslvania, and Texas), the company's "official headquarters" is here in Vermont. (By headquarters I mean two of us in the same office at the same time occasionally, a wireless network named "Joomlashack," and a P.O. Box for our mail. Our real HQ is a persistent skype chat.)

Needless to say, previous Joomla Days in the U.S. were not anywhere near Vermont, a tiny state 4,000 miles from Silicon Valley and closer to Montreal than any major American city. So when the the first East Coast Joomla Day scheduled just 300 miles away in New York, we jumped at the chance to drive to the Big Apple.
