There are Joomlers in all parts of the world. Groups like ours are only one small part. Joomla is about community and this community has Joomlers helping Joomlers everywhere.
We do our best to highlight and share what the other groups are doing. Discussions and presentations are held in many different languages and timeszones.
To find a group in another area, check out the Joomla User Group Directory on joomla.org community portal.
Visitors to these discussions are always welcome.
