  1. 1. Where is Joomla going? Joe LeBlanc
  2. 2. The Past
  3. 3. “Joomla will fail because...”
  4. 4. Things Joomla used to lack• Valid Markup• Multi-level categories• Customizable ACL• Support for SSL on specific pages
  5. 5. Yet Joomla is still around!
  6. 6. Technology changes over time• We patch in mature technologies• New features keep Joomla fresh• However, features arent goals
  7. 7. Joomla 3.0 brings new features• Bootstrap-based frontend markup• Complete admin panel overhaul• Responsive design throughout
  8. 8. We could spend hours goingover every new feature in Joomla 3.0, but that wouldnt tell you where Joomla is going.
  9. 9. Joomla has to have a long-termvision that drives the project into the future.

  14. 14. The IntersectionLESS-driven template color chooser Designers Implementers
  15. 15. The features that serve the needs of all four roles simultaneously are the ones that drive us into the future.
  16. 16. Few pieces of software serve the needs of all four groups simultaneously.This is something unique about Joomla.
  17. 17. Conclusion• Joomla needs features, but they arent the essence of the project.• Joomla keeps the bigger picture in mind.• The future depends on serving programmers, designers, implementers, and end users simultaneously.

Use of this logo does not imply endorsementof this presentation by either the Joomla! Project or byOpen Source Matters. Any color mis-coordination isstrictly my fault.
