We have taken the feedback of the hundreds of Joomla users and created a unique training event; we call it our Joomla University!
What is Joomla University?
It is a flexible full-day session where you learn how to build a Joomla website, get traffic for it, and make it convert. You'll be guided through how best to leverage Joomla for your organization and be shown the tricks and tips that the pros use. At the end of the day, you should have a site that's ready to go live online.
Who Should Go?
- Individuals who need to understand how to build a site with Joomla
- Employees who are responsible for running a Joomla-powered website
- Designers who want to offer Joomla sites to their clients
What Will I Learn?
The day-long class is designed to give students a complete picture of everything they need to know to run a successful Joomla website. Starting from the best way to plan and build your sections and categories, optimizing your navigation for usability all the way to hands-on techniques to get traffic and market your website.
Each class will also have time devoted to addressing and answering problems YOU are experiencing with using Joomla 1.5 to create websites.
Who is the Trainer?
There are people who are experts in Joomla, and there are those who are excellent speakers and educators. Your instructor, Barrie North, is a unique combination of both.
Barrie North is the author of the #1 selling book "Joomla - A User's Guide". He has over 15 years of experience with the Internet: as a user, designer and teacher. As a former high school teacher and educator, he has received national awards for innovative educational methods.
He is a partner of Joomlashack, one of the highest traffic Joomla! sites online, providing templates, extensions and custom services. He has helped over 150 businesses and organizations get online with Joomla, including such clients as the University of Delaware and the City of Longwood. He also maintains a blog about all things Joomla! at his own site, Compass Designs.
