Joomla! is fast becoming one of the most popular content management systems in the world, powering almost 3% of the web and exceeding 30 million downloads - the chances are during your day you probably browse at least one website using Joomla!
Things have been a little busy in the past month, with lots of international speaking engagements and of course, being part of the team behind Joomla!Day UK which took place at the beginning of October.
I am fortunate to have recently returned from a couple of weeks out in America, where I was invited to speak at the first Joomla! World Conference in San Jose, California.
I submitted a few proposals, but the one which was selected was on the topic of Microdata, Authorship and Google+ - something I'm developing a real interest in.
I don't often work as a contractor on ODesk, mainly because when competing against thousands of other developers from other parts of the world who are charging $5 per hour or less, it is difficult to either be awarded a contract in the first place, and to work for an hourly rate which matches your skills and experience.
