Our Joomla Story goes back a long way! It was back in 2004 that we first looked at Mambo. I was still an Engineering student back then and we were mainly using PHP Nuke and PHPbb among other systems to develop a Non-profit Environment related portal. If you knew PHPNuke back then installing a 'Feature' meant editing a Zillion files based on a Text help file to add code. Coming from there, when we looked at the futuristic 'Extension Installer' in Mambo and the extensive Administration interface – It was love at first sight. That’s how our love affair started and continued with Joomla when it forked in 2006 and it’s been an enduring relationship since then. We had written an article about this in the Joomla community magazine sometime back . Read more about our Joomla Story here :
