Syndicated : 5 Fantastic years with Joomla. A nostalgic look back...

Birthday cake for JoomlaToday, on the 1st of September 5 years ago Joomla was unveiled to the world for the first time. Its time for celebrations for the Joomla community world wide which is one of the most diverse communities in the Open Source world. With the least entry barriers , here anyone can come in & take leadership & make change happen. It is this marvelous community of users, developers, designers, documentation creators , bug reporters & fixers, evangelists & every single person that has touched & been touched by this piece of software.

 

Joomla has come a long long way since that 5 years ago. Today it feeds many mouths in more ways than one & i am sure that all together, the jobs it has created can compete with any of the top fortune 500 companies in the world. It runs close to 2.5% of the sites on the web today. It is used by organizations as large as Apple, McDonald’s and the United Nations and by millions of people for their companies, hobbies and charities.

Today as we look back, we are hit with a wave of nostalgia..so today, we'll tell you our Joomla Story.
