Joomla Day Pune(India)

On 25th April 2009 we hosted first ever Joomla Day in India. This was made possible by support of Parth and Ashwin who forced me to also think about Joomla Day in last years PHPCamp, where we were planning for Drupal camp.

They were later joined by Shardul, who was already pushing for Joomla day in India at events forum in He was the person who was on our first coffee meet to discuss how to get going so that we get official approval from OSM. He also pushed me to create and register Joomla User Group Pune, for the event.

We met multiple times to talk and plan how things should happen.Volunteers Team on 24th evening for Joomla day

In middle of all this, out of nowhere, Mangesh joined us. He was instrumental in actually making website usable, as Ashwin and Parth could not give the time and attention to it. He also ended up hosting the website on his server, when we started having trouble with dream host.

With organizers team ready, we needed few volunteers,  this is where Tara came into picture, he helped us with venue and insisted that we give I2IT a try. Krity worked on the content of the website and faq’s. Kinjal helped us with photographs, Rucha and Shruti helped us managing the registrations on the day of event.

Finally I want to thank Toby Patterson for coming all the way from Thailand to help us with Joomla Day.
