Greetings from The Joomla! Community in Kenya. The fourth annual JoomlaDay Kenya hosted by the Joomla Community in collaboration with CMSAfrica was hosted by Strathmore University. @iLabAfrica is a Centre of Excel­lence in ICT innov­a­tion and Devel­op­ment based at Strath­more Uni­ver­sity. It was estab­lished to address the Mil­len­nium Devel­op­ment Goals(MDGs) and to con­trib­ute toward Kenya’s Vis­ion 2030. The research cen­ter is involved in inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research, stu­dents engage­ment, col­lab­or­a­tion with gov­ern­ment, industry and other fund­ing agen­cies.
Since the first in 2012, this conference has rapidly developed into an important forum where Joomla! ethosiasts can meet, have interactions and network with each other; where mattendees can cooparate and learn from tech exparts about the latest processes in technologies to deliever an even more efficient business. In today’s digital world, we download and upload tons of information from and to the internet. We visit millions of websites in our internet lifetime and sometimes, we even want to make one of our own. However, this could prove to be costly and you may not know how to go about it by yourself. This is where an immensely useful product called Joomla! comes into the picture. Put in simple terms, Joomla! is a software for making and updating a website in an easy way.

The best part about Joomla! is that it requires no prior programming knowledge. This means that anyone can creat and develop a website in easiest possible manner. This is the massage we have tried to spread in all our Joomla! Events throughout East Africa. We have managed to bring enlightment on what joomla! can do and how the community work something that very few people know about. Among the topics where Joomla! 101, by Shadrack Serem, taking us through the Joomla!3.6 including the latest and greatest features from the developers supporting Joomla!, Creating a joomla component in 30 minutes, this was a practical talk which tusked the attendees to participate, learn and show their results, with two keynotes, Payments in Joomla! and Intergrating voice call API to Joomla!

We take this opportunity to thank our speakers who took their time to participate in this event and share their great knowledge to better others.

In the same spirit, to our sponsors, the people who made this day a success, our host Open Source Matters, @iLabAfrica, CmsAfrica, Netrixs Business systems, NorrNext, Akeeba, Web357 and DJ-Extentions and Joomla Monsters.
