Last chance to test Joomla 4.3
Joomla 4.3 RC 2 is out
We can finally test the second RC of Joomla 4.3. This is the last chance to test our sites before the release of Joomla 4.3 stable, which is due on April 18.
New sessions announced for JoomlaDay USA
JoomlaDay USA announced new sessions in a newsletter last week. I have been checking the web and I have found only a new one: Nicholas' talk on security "Site Wars: The Phantom Menace". Catchy, isn't it?
Web accessibility: easier than you think
Piensa Solutions have convened the accessibility consultant Vicent Sanchís and the expert designer Ana Cirujano to talk about accessibility and how we can aim for a more accessible site just paying attention to design. Because not everything is coding... It's in Spanish but for sure YouTube transcripts will help you.
You can now buy your tickets for JoomlaDay DACH
We see on the JoomlaDay DACH Instagram account that you can now buy your tickets for the event. This JoomlaDay will be held in Salzburg, Austria in September and although it is geared towards German-speaking Joomla users, it usually has many talks in English.
Joomlaverse in week 14 of 2023
