Wednesday, November 8th is the Extensions We're Thankful For meeting at Joomla User Group Chicago North or JUGCN. This is one of my favorite meetings. It's a chance for everyone to chime in on the extensions that have made their site development easier. There are of course some that are included year after year such as AkeebaBackup and RSForms, but it is also a chance to discover new extensions. With nearly 8,000 (7,948 the last time I looked at extensions.joomla.org) there is bound to be an undiscovered gem of a favorite.
Check out the 2016 Favorite Extensions, share yours and join us Wednesday, November 8th at 11 am online or in-person (we provide lunch and great conversation) to go over this year's 2017 Joomla Extensions We're Thankful For.
HubSpot CTO Dharmesh Shah gave a Keynote Address at #INBOUND2017 and in it he recounted meeting Elon Musk (I'm a big fan!). During that meeting he talked about growing your business by aligning your vectors. I admit I had to read this a couple of times to fully comprehend. Halfway through the second read, a lightbulb went off. I get it. Sum of parts, aligned vectors, everyone rowing the same way is necessary for growth. Mr. Shah has shared both a video and the slides of his keynote address on LinkedIn in a post called, What Elon Musk Taught Me About Growing a Business. Check it out, what do you think?
