I'm super excited to be part of the J4 UX Team. It's an amazing opportunity that I am grateful to have. My goal is to make Joomla 4 awesome in every possible way for Joomla users around the planet.
The purpose of the JUX is to improve the usability of the Joomla project through extensive research and user testing, and to make recommendations to the relevant teams based on findings.
Our goal is to create an intuitive experience for our users, all the way from first landing on our website to maintaining and updating their Joomla sites years from now. We are committed to improving the usability of the Joomla admin interface, and the default templates.
An article I wrote titled "Understanding Joomla! Core Content Features" was published in the May 2015 edition of the Joomla Magazine. It's all about using the powerful built in features of Joomla to make life easier and it's my take on how to utilize these features in real life situations. My hope is that it helps a lot of people and that it's just the first of many contributions that I can make to the magazine. I hope you enjoy reading it.
I was humbled and grateful to have been given the opportunity by the Joomla JET Event Travel Programme to attend the J & Beyond Joomla Conference 2015 in Prague, Czech Republic. It was my first trip overseas and the adventure of a life time.
I made so many new friends from all over the world and soaked up all the knowledge I could. The connections I made there have already changed my life in so many ways. I'll be there every year I can make it from here on out.
I was honored to have the opporunity to travel to Boston and give an all day workshop on Joomla template development. Thanks to Joomla, all the organizers and all the attendee's for letting me and my Wolverine beard make an appearance - it was an awesome weekend. It was great see old friends and make new ones, I hope to see you all again soon.
