Earlier tonight, the J.O.S.C.A.R.s award ceremony took place at J and Beyond 2012. The conference, which is now in progress in Bad Nauheim, Germany, has gathered over 200 people from almost 40 countries. And they are all here to share their knowledge, contribute to the project or learn something new to bring back home.
The awards ceremony was a lot of fun as always, featuring the duo Teeman and Drover in matching tuxedos. And later, Brian Teeman as the Elvis of Joomla in an outrageous costume worthy of the King himself.
I'm very happy to announce that one of my sites won an award this year, in the category for Best eCommerce website.
The site, www.kaffekapsler.no, is a webshop based on Joomla 2.5 and Redshop. The products are coffee capsules from Caffitaly, Martello and (soon) Nespresso, and the site is selling products to customers in Norway.
