In 2008, our sister site, Compass Designs ran a series of successful single day training classes for Joomla across new England. One question we was asked again and again was "when will you be running classes in 2009?"

You may have noticed that Joomlashack is now running on Joomla 1.5. We did a stealth migration yesterday.

Last month we asked our Joomlashack community to nominate their favorite charity for a $1,000 USD cash prize.

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.
Joomlashack was in the house for CMS Expo Denver last week, and enjoyed a three days of packed Joomla action.
The Expo brought together for the second time a dogpile of friends and colleagues in the Joomlaverse, including our buddies at Alledia.com (SEO Club), Azrul.com (Makers of JomSocial, MyBlog, JomComment, and other excellent extensions for Joomla), and dozens of other Joomlaheads.
