Topic 1: Joomla 2.5's Hidden Features — User Profiles and Terms of Service with Craig Phillips
In this talk we look at a few features that were slipped into the Joomla! 2.5 releases after the Joomla! 2.5 was released and how they can be useful. Specifically we'll be looking at how to configure and use the the extended User Profiles options and the new "Terms of Service" option. If we get time we'll also look a few of the other changes that have arrived since 2.5.0.
Craig Phillips has been working with the web since before the gold rush days of "Dotcom" and has been working with Joomla! since the early beta's of 1.5 back in the halcyon days of 2006! Starting out on an original Apple I kit and passing through Tandy TRS-80's, Commodore PET's, Apple II's,IIe's, and every Mac since the original 128K — Craig has been an avid software developer with a strong leaning towards system security and embedded applications. Today Craig, runs a small software development company that specialises in bespoke and commercial Joomla! extensions and enterprise IOS applications.
Topic 2: Save my site with Ricardo.
For those that haven't been part of a "save my site" session, this is where one of our users shows off their Joomla website to the group, and talks about any problems they have been struggling with. This is an opportunity for the group to offer advice and constructive feedback on how to improve the website. The two sites Ricardo will be showing off are http://home.exetel.com.au/noviny/ and http://www.coleoptera.org/.
This will be followed by our usual Pizza & Beer, then general Q&A session where you can ask the group whatever you like.
