The Joomla School of Hospitable Technology

The Joomla School of Hospitable Technology

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

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

I was amazed at how good the presentations were. We posted all of them to the Joomlashack YouTube channel.

This presentation was from Joe LeBlanc. This was the final, the closing session of the event and I don't think we could've picked a more appropriate closing session. Joe is one of my oldest friends in the Joomla community. He wrote many of the first and most useful Joomla extensions tutorials. He certainly wrote the first Joomla development book. We still have some useful tutorials over here at Joomlashack that he wrote over a decade ago.

Joe used Joomla as the jumping off point for a full-stack web developer career. His career has taken him to Ruby-on-Rails, deep into JavaScript and all sorts of other coding skills, working for big e-commerce companies. Joe's topic today is on how you can do the same: how you can get skills you use in the Joomla environment and build a wide-ranging and successful web development career.

For many of us, Joomla was our coding school. We found a friendly place where we could learn PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript together. What will this school’s future be?
