We are in the final stretch of 2012 which means that Melbourne Joomladay 2013 is just around the corner.

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.
