The Joomla community is HUGE, there are forums, JUGS (Joomla User Groups) blog sites, template clubs, freelance systems, JED (Joomla Extension Directory) and there are hundred of thousands (maybe millions) of people across the globe within this community.

This session will explain how the community works, how to get advice, where to find labour/services and how to find extensions to build up your website. And how to get involved in the Joomla! community.
