Joomla Day India a great success !

Joomla Day India 2011 saw people from All over India & in fact even some from UK grace the event. With over 180 people coming to attend some really cool Joomla sessions spread over 2 days, this was India's Biggest Joomla Day till now.

The best part was that people came from all corners of India making it a true Joomla Day "India". The event schedule catered to people from all types of backrounds - from beginners to Joomla end users to developers. The sessions were spread over 2 Days with Brian taking a total of 4 talks !

Adding a truely international flavour to the event were speakers like Brian Teeman, Klas Berlic (Molajo) & Azrul from the JomSocial team who all came all the way to India.

The first session saw Brian getting the audience on their feet & rocking the entire MCCIA Building with "I Say Joomla you Say Rocks" & an Indian version of the same "Joomla Ki Jay !".
