With just a few weeks to go to J and Beyond it’s time to start your preparations. A few minutes spent reading this check list will have a lasting and beneficial effect on your experience at the event. If you have other suggestions then please share them in the comments.
Badges are small and eyesight is bad so don’t make people squint to see who you are. If you have a product then don’t assume that everyone will connect your personal name with your product. If you really want to meet people make yourself easily identifiable and memorable. Business cards might be considered to be old fashioned and too corporate but they are essential. It’s quicker to share your details on a card than to use a high-tech solution. We all have lots of devices that can store contact details but do you really want to “whip it out” when you have your hands full with a coffee and a snack. A good idea is to include a photo so that people can put a face to your name once the event is over.

The first Joomla template for us (and most of the Joomla world) to kick off the whole responsive thing is now available as a Joomla 3 template. We released Responsive back in October 2011 and despite it's simplicity it has proved to be one of our most popular Joomla templates to date.
Core T3 Features
This update of course is built on the powerful T3 framework and comes loaded T3 standards such as:
- Mega Menu
- Granular layout control
- Advanced theming via Theme Magic
- Bootstrap, css and html5
- Responsive menu options such as toggle and off canvas

In the past years Joomla development has progressed at breakneck speed, challenging Joomla extensions developers to adopt new processes and introduce new features. Joomla 2.5 introduced major new features such as the ACL (including the permissions and access levels), multilingual support and new form elements. In Joomla 3, the most exciting new feature is full integration of bootstrap to make Joomla the first major CMS to be responsive and mobile-ready .
In this first post of the series on JCal Pro® — our calendar add-on for Joomla — we examine how JCal Pro® 3 has used Joomla Bootstrap to provide mobile-optimized administration of your calendar as well as the recently introduced responsive template named “Inspired” to provide a true mobile calendar experience for your visitors. Responsive design at very basic level is the use of code to identify the screen size of the device, and adjusts the output to the particular screen size accordingly. JCal
