How Joomla Helped Build a Site for Writers, Readers and Publishers

How Joomla Helped Build a Site for Writers, Readers and Publishers

We held the Joomlashack Conference over 3 days in mid-November.

This was a free conference featuring 20 of the best speakers from around the Joomla world.

I was amazed at how good the presentations were. We're currently editing all the videos and posting them to the Joomlashack YouTube channel. There's a single playlist for all conference videos.

This presentation is from Robert Fairhead, from Sydney, Australia. It is his personal case study. This is the first presentation of this type where the speaker talks about one particular website they built, all the ins and outs and the challenges that were involved in building it.

In 2017, Robert launched Tall And True, a Joomla-based online magazine for writers, readers and publishers he has been dreaming about and working on since 2001.

This presentation is on how Joomla helped Robert realize that dream, from his original idea and thoughts on technology, and the detours and roadblocks he encountered over the years, to his light bulb moment with Joomla and the proud day when he finally launched the website in 2017. He'll also share the lessons he learned along the way.
