The Joomla University in Chicago
Saturday, May 17, 2008 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (CDT)
Last month we sent out a survey of what YOU wanted from a Joomla training event... we listened.....
You didn9t want speakers and lectures, you wanted hands-on workshops and training from the best educators in the Joomlaverse. We have taken the feedback of the hundreds of respondents and created a tailored training event, we call it our Joomla University!
It is a flexible one day session-based training where you can pick and choose what workshops you wanted to attend. Each workshop is 3 hours and taught by a world renowned Joomla expert. The Joomla University has multiple sessions so you can pick the ones that meet YOUR needs.
You told us that one-on-one teaching was important.
Each session is limited to just 12 students!
We have arranged our sessions to be as flexible as possible. You can pick and choose sessions based on your needs.
Are you a designer building Joomla sites for your clients? Then brush up on your template design and Joomla search engine optimization and add value to your services.
Are you the webmaster of a Joomla site in your organization, or responsible for content? Then learn how to create Joomla website9s, from content organization to choosing the right extensions for you. Or understand how to make your site more secure from hackers.
We have sought out the best Joomla experts and educators, including 4 Joomla book authors!
There are six 3 hour sessions being offered in the morning and afternoon.
