JoomlaDay Florida for WordPress Users
It's not all about Joomla! Yes, this is a JoomlaDay for Joomla developers and users to meet, learn, share and celebrate the CMS, but it's much more! Joomla! Is an Open Source platform and that is at the heart of our connection.
This year for JoomlaDay Florida we have even more sessions and workshops that can bring us together. Our keynotes focus on marketing, blogging, and open source CMS's. The courses also include topics WordPress users will find useful. We have included Workshops on running a web business and using site builders for WordPress and Joomla.
Come to JoomlaDay Florida and learn what's new with Joomla, meet the people behind the project, attend the sessions and Keynotes and meet our friendly community!
