Two Joomla experts will be joining us for this special combined Joomla! Detroit and Refresh Detroit meeting.

Shane Sevo, leader of Joomla! Detroit, will speak about what makes the Joomla! Content Management System popular with many web designers and developers? How does it compare with other open source projects?

Steven Pignataro, of corePHP will also be joining us to discuss how his company’s innovative components can take your Joomla! site further.  Components he’ll be discussing include:

  • WordPress for Joomla!
  • Community ACL
  • jomCDN
  • jomCalendar

If you have questions about this award winning CMS, this is a fantastic opportunity to get them answered.
