JoomlaDay Chicago Sept 19th

JoomlaDay Chicago Sept 19th

So by now hopefully have heard that JoomlaDay Chicago 2015 is coming September 19th to the Donald E. Stephens Center.  This is a great event to connect with open source technology enthusiasts, both in the area and beyond.  The event includes many sessions on Joomla! (obviously) but also information that is helpful no matter the technology.  2015 marks the 4th time this event has been held in Chicago and I can tell you it is truly a labor of love to put this event together.  

The team behind this event has been working hard to bring to you some of the top speakers around.  Last year's event included David Hurley (WebSpark and joomla.org), Michael Babker (Joomla.org), Steven Pignataro ('corePHP'), and many more.  This year's event is shaping up to be just as spectacular.

New Year, New Joomla! Site - Migrating to Joomla! 3.x

New Year, New Joomla! Site - Migrating to Joomla! 3.x

The saying is New Year, New You.  What about New Year, New Joomla! Site?  Dec 31st not only marked the end of 2014 but also marked the end of support for Joomla! 2.5. For those keeping up with updates, there was a reminder in the administrator panel so you would not forget. While unpleasant flashbacks of the experience migrating from 1.5 to 2.5 gripped some. Others were in denial and disbelieve that a migration is needed.  I, however, looked at it with cautious optimism.  While my experience from 1.5 to 2.5 was far from a piece of cake, I’d been following the development and thought perhaps things would be different for the migration to 3.x and you know what?  I was right.

I'm pleased to announce that Danico, is sponsoring a fundraising event to benefit The Bridge Youth & Family Services on Thursday, October 23rd from 6 pm to 8 pm at Lamplighters Tavern & Grill, in downtown Palatine. The event is a Bottle and Bottega instructor-led fun painting session.  If you are not familiar with Bottle and Bottega, it was founded in 2009 as "Chicago's first art and wine entertainment studio offering a fun, unique alternative to an ordinary night out!"   Instead of going all the way to the Glen Ellyn location, we are bringing them to you, right in Palatine, in The Bridge's backyard.   The Bridge Youth & Family Services is a non-profit organization who's mission is to help young people and their families achieve social and emotional health. This organization will be celebrating 50 years of services in 2015 and the funds raised at this event will be put towards next year's marketing and promotions.   To sign-up, go to http://events.danicoenterprises.com. The event is $45 ($20 tax deductible) to participate and you get to take home your very own masterpiece.  Space is limited to 50, so get your seat today!

I Can't Wait for JoomlaDay Chicago 2015

I Can't Wait for JoomlaDay Chicago 2015

This year, I had the privilege of working with the volunteers for the JoomlaDay Chicago event held August 9th at the Microsoft Technology Center in the AON Center building in downtown Chicago.  It was also my first time attending.  Going into the event I didn’t know what to expect and I have to admit I was a little awestruck.  I have been using Joomla for many years and a lot of the speakers and guests were names I’ve seen over and over on whitepapers, articles, extensions, etc.  To see them in-person was a little surreal.
