Today marks the 10 year anniversary of the release of Joomla 1.0. The now immensely popular CMS was forked from Mambo, and has since come far in terms of the technology.
However, what is most brilliant about Joomla is the community. Personally, I've met so many people that I would never have met otherwise. People from far and near, people from completely different cultures and with totally different backgrounds and interests than myself. What we share is that we enjoy using Joomla and being a part of this inspiring community.
Being a part of the Joomla community has brought me to Stockholm, to Germany and the Netherlands for J and Beyond, and to Spain to speak at a Joomla event. Being part of the community has enriched my life with new friends. And it has challenged me in personal and technical ways I otherwise would not have knows.
How has being a part of the Joomla community impacted you and your life?
