Winter 2013 Joomla Events You Should Know About

After checking out the post about top WordPress events in winter 2013 I decided to complement the topic and to cover the winter events of another platform – this time Joomla fans should be satisfied.

The name Joomla is phonetically identical to the word “Jumla”, which is translated from Swahili language as “altogether”. So it’s not surprising Joomla team makes the organizing of the different type events a regular practice – as for me, the meaning undoubtedly intimates. Above that, such occasions bring a great chance to rest from working routine; however, the rest is not going far away from job moments: the visitors get acquainted better with the IT community, share their ideas with each other.

Interested? No problem, let me present you some top Joomla events in winter 2013 that will take place in different parts of the world.
