Launching Joomla! User Groups is something that I am only more than willing to help with. Last year JoeJoomla helped start the Joomla! User Group Toronto (JUGT). It's been steadily meeting monthly downtown Toronto mostly at Hemmingway's in Yorkville. You can see the events page for JUGT HERE. Now it's time to get something going west of Toronto and what a blast off the inaugural Joomla! User Group Southwestern Ontario meeting is going to be! With no less than FIVE speakers lined up for the meeting with yours truly moderating the evening.
The first meeting for JUGSWO will be held on Thursday October 8th from 710pm at the Personal Computer Museum in Brantford, Ontario. The speakers lined up for the meeting are:
- Greg Caughill of Picasso Fish Corporation, a leading edge solutions firm that provides solutions for web, print, software and design.
- Stacy Bradshaw of Annex Publishing & Printing who is a publisher of on-line magazines.
- Corrie Sloot of Picasso Fish who is a Joomla! developer and is also the primary contact for the new JUGSWO.
- Syd Bolton the curator of the Personal Computer Museum.
- JoeJoomla of joejoomla.com who also hangs out with the Joomla! project Bug Squad Team daily chats.
It should be a fun night with lots of Joomla! chatter, opinions, and rumours galore. Here's the official news release:
