I'll be doing a lot at the Joomla World Conference 2016 in Vancouver. If you're going to be there you won't have to look too hard to find me, and there are plenty of opportunities to see my sessions and hang out. Here is my official schedule for the JWC16 weekend. Be sure to find me and say hi!
Thursday Nov. 10th 2016
Pre Event Party
Relish Gastro Pub
Right down the block from the conference hotel
Find me and say hi for a free hug, then watch me drink Canadian whiskey and hear me talk way too much.
Friday Nov. 11th 2016
4:00pm to 4:45pm
Super Ninja Joomla! Workflow
I build awesome websites with Joomla pretty darn quick. Watch me slice and a dice a project and execute my Joomla strategy like a ninja. Beginners, Integrators and website builders - this one is for you.
Saturday Nov. 12th 2016
10:00am to 12:00pm Room D
Building Joomla! Templates
We'll make a Joomla template from scratch. It's a little complicated, but not as scary or difficult as you might believe.
1:30pm to 3:45pm Room TBA
Joomla UX Working Group "Joomla! In Action" community session
Want to be involved with the JUX team or check out what we're up to? Here is your chance. I would love to interact with you and talk about what the JUX team does and what you think would make Joomla! better.
Sunday Nov. 13th 2016
10:00am Parksville Room
Joomla Administrator Certification Study session
I'll be there for a bit, then I need to get ready for my Community session in the main room. I have taken the exam once already so I know what to expect. Do you?
11:00am to 11:45am Main Room
Take Yourself Out Of The Equation
This is my final session of the weekend and it's the session I'm looking forward to the most. I'll be sharing my insights on working together, community leadership and being a cool person. I hope I can inspire positive change in you and in our community.
1:00pm Parksville Room
Joomla Administrator Certification Exam
Join me and many others to take a crack at becoming an Officially Certified Joomla! Administrator.
I didn't pass the exam at JoomlaDay Denver because I didn't have time to study and I was pre-occupied with a million other things that day. I missed my chance to be the first officially certified administrator in the USA, but the number #2 spot is still open. If you want that honor you'll need to get it done faster than me. Good luck.
Shots of Canadian whiskey
I don't know where the nearest bar is, or if there is a post-event reception with a bar, but which ever bar it may be, that is where you will find me immediately after the conference. Decompression will be required to keep my sanity after this is all over.
As a fan of experiencing the regional fare when traveling, and as a whiskey aficionado, this local libation is a much appreciated alternative over hockey slap shots or shots of maple syrup.
It's going to be a great weekend and I'm looking forward to it. Unofficially, I'll be around for a bit before & after the conference, contact me if you want to hang out.
Big thanks to the Joomla! JET program. I would not be able to attend this year's JWC without their assistance. I'll most certainly earn my keep over the weekend. See you in Vancouver.
