Today is Read a Book Day


September 6th is Read a Book Day

One well-known thing about me is my love of reading.  I read anything I can get my hands on.  I get that from my parents who are voracious readers themselves.  Reading is a great way to keep on top of trends or changes in the industry as well as escaping for a couple of hours.  I’m currently in the middle of reading two books, Joomla 3 Explained and Beach Lawyer.  You may recognize the first title.  A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a contest to win the book with the winner being pulled from those who registered for JoomlaDay Chicago.  The contest came from my reading the book and finding it helpful as it reminded me of the power that core Joomla!, without a lot a of extensions or plugins, can be.

Register for JoomlaDay Chicago and Enter to Win Joomla 3 Explained!

It's getting close to JoomlaDay Chicago and I'm excited. We're at a new location and we're offering the Joomla Certification Exam. In talking with members of Joomla User Group Chicago North (JUGCN) and the JoomlaDay Chicago committee, we were trying to find resources to help those looking to take the test. I started reading this book, Joomla 3 Explained, by Steve Burge and OSTraining.

I like it a lot, both for its structure and content.

I've been using Joomla for about a decade and I still learned a lot. It's because I enjoyed this book so much that I thought it would be a good idea to give away a copy to a fellow Joomler in time to read BEFORE JoomlaDay. So, anyone who is registered by September 1st (including those who registered some time ago - thank you) are eligible to win. You will have your choice of digital or paperback.
