We are in the final stretch of 2012 which means that Melbourne Joomladay 2013 is just around the corner.  I'm quite excited about this event given that I'll get the chance to meet Brian Teeman and Peter van Westen in the flesh.  Skype is certainly a great tool for building friendship with people in distant parts of the world, but nothing beats sitting down and sharing a quiet brew or two, to really get to know someone - especially if that's on a ridiculously hot Melbourne January day.

Fellow Joomla template creator Bui Huy Thang from Joomlashine will also be giving an indepth session about making the Joomla administrator a better place. Bui was a key player in the Joomla 3.0 UX design team so that will certainly be a must see presentation.
