This year J and Beyond visits Königstein near Frankfurt Germany, where Joomla enthusiasts from around the world converged to meet, mingle and learn from each other.

I was lucky enough to come along to this years conference as a part of the leadership training.

The events theme this years was all around investing in our future and investing in Joomla! an interesting topic where we could have a good overview over where the project is heading and what has change recently in the last few months.

Between the 30th of May and the 2nd of June we saw around 200 Joomla! designers, developers and implementers join in on various topics and sessions including the great, "Make It Happen" session on the second day where everyone who wasn't already a volunteer for the project get automatically placed into a working group to help out.

J and Beyond - Day 1

Git for Joomla Development (Link to J and Beyond)

If you have never used Git before or don't understand how collaborative coding works, Roberto put together a fantastic presentation in regards to how to get into Git, work with it and maintain your project code within a repository.

These are some of the skills that you will need if you want to start to help and contribute code to the Joomla project.

Parthe is a great advocate for the Joomla Framework and his presentation on the case study where he used the Framework is a great way to showcase just how powerful the Framework is.

Watch all the videos

For those that couldn't be there, you can watch all of the sessions online via YouTube. It's great that you can review the videos after the event or watch what you are missing because you're not there. The videos don't capture the networking, the people and atmosphere of the event though. 

Watch all the videos from the event on YouTube.
