In October 2014 I will be attending Joomla! Day UK 2014 at Sunningdale Park, Ascot.

I will also be speaking at the event for the first time.  My talk is under the "Administrators" stream called "How to Build a Club Website"

This will be my 3rd Joomla! Day UK I have attended. The first was in 2011 at Microsoft's Offices in London. In 2012 the Olympics were on in London so we skipped a year.

In 2013 the organisers moved the weekend event to Sunningdale Park which is a lovely location with all attendees on site for the talks, food, accommodation and bar. This means no one separates after the day's talks to separate bars. The park itself is very beautiful.

The same venue has been chosen for 2014.

Joomla! Days are great events with social time to have a drink and a chat and meet interesting characters in the Joomla! world. The 2 days are usually structured with keynote speeches and short (up to an hour) sessions covering advice and guidance to technical workshops.

My session is designed to bridge the gap between the absolute beginner and someone looking for advanced technical advice.
I will attempt to install a site from scratch with Joomla! 3.3 and demonstrate the new web install facility to load 2 extensions enabling a fully functional club website to be set up with discussion forum and private chat.

Come along and see how I get on!
