How Joomla! Changed My Life - intentionally supporting community and collaboration

Lyndsey Jackson

If it wasn’t for accidentally stumbling into the world of Joomla! in 2007 Lyndsey would probably be working an incredibly dull job. Fortuitously, the world of technology and open source was opened up to her and she hasn’t looked back. Many of our open source and tech communities are struggling with evolving community challenges, changing demographics and pressures. But finding new ways to bring in new people and work better together will secure the future of projects, and open life altering opportunities for people. Lyndsey will share insights and new ways of thinking from her experience in Drupal, as Chair of Electronic Frontiers Australia, as organiser of grass roots campaign #NotMyDebtand, and as a champion of regional community development.
