The web has completely changed since its birth, 25 years ago. It has changed from a small niche group of users to a global user base in just a few years. Out have sprung the giants of Tech and the tools to produce and manage ever more content online. Over that time the ecosphere of web creation tools has changed. For example the advent of mobile phones has forced us to change the way we build our websites. Joomla has also had to evolve over the years to stay alive. Even a strong community and good quality code is not enough to keep your place in this competitive world.
In 2014 I decided to help Joomla with the skills I had at hand. I became involved in many different projects. I got the chance to participate in several international meetings. Each of these meetings gave me the opportunity to get to know and exchange ideas with exceptional people from all over the world. Many have become my friends.
Today, I consider the Joomla community as my second family.
During these meetings, I have noticed the passion in the volunteers and the users to help our CMS progress. All of them are motivated by the same desire to see Joomla keep on growing thanks to the work of the enthusiastic teams and aided by its undeniable technical qualities.
As a result of this I tried to imagine how and what would significantly increase the number of Joomla users around the world.
