Baby New YearSupport these five charities, but vote for just one!

Last month we asked our Joomlashack community to nominate their favorite charity for a $1,000 USD cash prize. Within 10 days, we had nominees from all corners of the globe and doing incredibly diverse work. Our team carefully reviewed every entry and then narrowed our list down to the five nominees below as our favorite five.

Please check out and then support each of these excellent and deserving organizations with an online contribution, and then vote for the charity that you think is most deserving of our $1,000 USD cash prize.

Joomla Events are growing and Joomla 1.5 is Easier to Use

Last year over 3000 people filled out our first ever Annual Joomla User Survey. Over the last few weeks we have been running our 2nd Annual Joomla Survey and already over 1000 people have told us about how they use Joomla.

There is still time to fill out the survey and enter to win over $1,000 worth of prizes!

We released the results of our first survey last year and found some interesting things. We have been looking at some of the early data, and its been very interesting to be able to analyses trends now we have data over time.

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.
