VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 10, 2016 /CNW/ -- The 2016 JWC (Joomla! World Conference) returns to North America with a conference at the Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel in downtown Vancouver, BC. The global conference event takes place during November 11-13, 2016, and brings together web developers and marketing professionals from around the world.
Here is a quote from TJ Director of the JWC Team: "We are thrilled to hold our event in Vancouver at the Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel, and are looking forward to empowering the local tech and marketing community with how Joomla! can help their businesses thrive."
JWC started in 2012 in San Jose, CA, focusing on web development and content management systems and has since expanded into digital technology and marketing. Previous locations have included Boston (2013), Mexico (2014), and Bangalore, India (2015). The 2016 event in Vancouver has a strong keynote lineup, including speakers from Google, Hubspot, the Digital Services Manager Tadhg Healy from the city of Vancouver, and resident local UX expert Steve Fisher.
Sessions and workshops range from complex web development to system architecture, digital content marketing, and digital user experiences. The event sessions target businesses and organizations with speakers sharing knowledge from the leading experts in their respective fields.
A new initiative this year at the JWC is professional certification. It will be possible to sign up to take the Joomla! Administrator Exam and become certified as an official Joomla! Administrator during the event. There is also a series of information and training about Joomla! during the weekend.
Jisse Reitsma from Yireo in Holland will host a hands-on development workshop on Saturday where he will be teaching developers with ten different lab exercises, how to increase their productivity by better understanding the architecture and possibilities of the Joomla! Plugins structure.
