Chicago Joomla Expo Recap: 300 passionate users in one room

A few weeks ago Team Joomlashack was together for a rare in-person gathering. (Our team is scattered across four states and three time zones, all in the U.S.) JoomlaEXPO in Chicago was a terrific day for any Joomlahead, but especially those new to our wild software scene.

There are several very good recaps of JoomlaEXPO to check out. The organizers of the Expo, Joomla Chicago, have a comprehensive write-up and dozens of pics. The short story: over 300 Joomla fans and potential users spent eight hours covering the sun on all things Joomla.

Joomlashack's Barrie North did double duty at EXPO with two presentations. Read his interesting recap, but also check out the slideshows of his two presentations:

Building a Successful Website with Joomla 1.5

Creating a Pure CSS Template in Joomla 1.5

Joomlashack was a proud sponsor of this very innovative and fun day of Joomla'in. Our good friends John and Linda at The Coffee Group are hoping to organize a few more of these EXPOs, and we're excited. It's a great day when a bunch of passionate Joomla users get together in the same room.

Here's a couple shots of Team Joomlashack sportin' the brand. Enjoy!
