As Joomla site designers, it is easy to forget that the tool we all love so much, is itself a labour of love. Unlike other large Open Source projects, Joomla is an all-volunteer organization. Without the international community of diverse expertise, passion and commitment, the project would not be a fraction of what it is today.

Joomla 3.5 has now been released and can be downloaded from Joomla.org. Along with the usual bug fixes, there are several new features of interest, including plugins to alert you to future updates, to help you provide system information for support and an easier method of customising the Protostar template. All of which make this a very useful upgrade.

I am in the process of creating a new course on how to start a web design business. To help students decide if a web design business is right for them, I am including interviews from current and past developers. If that's you, would you like to be interviewed? I am looking for a few people who started their own web design business and love it. However in the interest of balance, I am also looking for those who started and decided it is not for them. Note that this is NOT directly related to Joomla. It is about your experience with web design as a whole.

I am offering a small payment in return for your time.

To be considered, please write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with one of the following subject lines:

If you are or have been the owner of a web design business and you love(d) it, then make the subject "Web Design is Awesome"

If you tried starting a web design business or if you're in one now and you don't like it, make the subject "Web design Sucks"

Then tell me a bit about your web design business background and if I think this will work out, I will be in touch in a couple of days.

Joomla is a common choice in the community of web developers, as it provides enormous flexibility, vital for creating powerful sites with a minimum effort. This open-source CMS isn’t only easy to install, but also provides advanced support in managing and updating websites. Google and other search engines face no obstacles with the indexation of online portals built with this tool. In such a way, users of Joomla can boost visibility of their web resources and deliver their content to the wider audience.

I am a fan of JoomlArt, one of the oldest and most respected Joomla extension developers. However their latest release has me scratching my head. It’s either fiendishly clever or downright evil. Would you let this extension lose on your website?
