Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 23.
Brian Teeman has an interesting piece on the J&Beyond conference and community involvement.
There is also an interview with the Joomlaworks guys as well as a case study showing a big site using Joomla. Enjoy!

Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last few weeks you will know that J&Beyond took place last week in Wiesbaden, Germany.
Over the last 10 years I have attended countless Mambo, Joomla, Linux and other open source events and I'm convinced that this was the best of the lot.

Update: I didn't realise at the time, but literally as this article was being published, Cory from CoryWebbMedia.com was making Demand Media's new Joomla site live. Screenshots have been updated and I've asked him for more details as soon as the launch is over.

Recently the Joomla Community Workgroup came up with an idea to share just how much work is being done with the wider community by way of a monthly team report. You can see the source of the combined report I have compiled below here.

Do you remember having a laugh when Marcos posted "How to prevent community"? Point 6 of the keynote of Josh Berkus at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit was about legalese, and for me it was a bit too close for comfort.

We have now been asked several times regarding our position on Joomla 1.6 and moving forward with our extensions so I guess its time to make the announcement.
Joomla 1.6 is currently in beta 2, following an unlimited number of betas there could be an unlimited number of release candidates before a stable release is made. Therefore the timeframe for a stable release is anyones guess.
How do you judge the success of a conference? This past weekend I was at J and Beyond, the first international Joomla conference ever. It was in Wiesbaden, Germany, May 30-June 1. See the website at http://jandbeyond.org.
