Day 1

As day one of the J and Beyond conference comes to an end, I have put together the feed and a few highlights that I've picked from the day that I hope to hear more about.

The end of the first day also brings the J.OSCARS Award ceremony as well where the community acknowledges the contributions and commitment to the Joomla community.

This year a very special mention goes out to Guillermo Bravo for the "Outstanding personal achievement" award and

  • Watchful.li (Victor Drover)
  • AdminCredible (Steve Burge and TJ Baker)
  • MyJoomla (Phil Taylor)

for "Innovation of the Year"!

The other categories and winners are as follows: (I still don't know who won what in all the categories as the social media from the event is very limited)
