I'd like to take the opportunity to let our readers know of a current open conversation about the future of Joomla's User Interface, or UI as it's commonly referred to, and invite everyone to share their input should they wish to.
Some of you may already know of Kyle Ledbetter's work over the last few months to bring modern standardization to the Joomla admin interface, an effort that many of us are very grateful he began. For a peek, take a look at the screenshot above - yes, that's a possible Joomla admin interface!
Due largely in part to Kyle's efforts to incorporate the popular Twitter Bootstrap framework for use in standardizing the UI and presenting a set of tools for developers, Joomla's Production Leadership Team (PLT) has asked of the larger community what their desires and preferences for the adoption of an underlying framework be.
I invite you to read what Kyle has written in a summary of his overall goeals, and to head over to the JUI forum discussion to share your input.

New Joomla Lessons
Today I am happy to launch our brand new 12 lesson video training course to guide you step-by-step through the process of creating a multilingual Joomla website.
While I was creating this course I realised that much of the available documentation for building multi-lingual web sites makes it seem something very complex and not for the faint hearted.
I have worked hard to remove the mystique by breaking the process down into just a few simple steps that anyone can follow.
