This week will mark the end of a long journey we have travelled to make sure that we up an event together. Organising an event in Nairobi is not easy. Its really difficult getting sponsors for IT event and maybe other events. I have had opportunities to be involved in a number of events, Joomla! Day Ke being one of them.
Joomla! is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. Over the years Joomla! has won several awards.It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS that allows you to build powerful online applications.
As of May 2018, Joomla! has been downloaded over 93 million times. Over 8,000 free and commercial extensions are available from the official Joomla! Extensions Directory, and more are available from other sources. It is estimated to be the second most used content management system on the Internet, after WordPress.
Open Source Matters has always supported Joomla Day Events, depending on the budget they have. JoomlaDay events are officially recognized, but not organized, by the Joomla! Project and Open Source Matters, Inc. Each event is managed independently by a local community.
But important to say that the support from Open Source Matters is always not enough to make an event happen, and so the need to bring in more sponsors becomes important. This year Joomshaper came to our rescue.
JoomShaper is the home of beautifully crafted unique Joomla templates and highly functional extensions along with award winning drag and drop SP Page Builder for you to create your dream website in minutes.
We would like to thank Joomshaper for supporting this event, and we hope that they will continue to partner with us in the future.
What’s new during this Joomla Day? Apart from a wide range of topics being covered, we will also be carrying out the Joomla Administrators Exams.
The Joomla! Certification Program has been created to ensure the competence of Joomla! professionals through documented measurement of skills and knowledge. The program aims to establish a certain standard whilst promoting a qualified workforce.
Professional certification can play an important role in the decision of a company or business owner when hiring skilled individuals for specific roles.
We welcome you to come and learn, interact and network with tech enthusiast and professional during this event.
