Back in the early days of CMS's emerging, I checked out as many as I could before finding one called Mambo, and finding it the easiest to get my head around. Shortly after, the project forked and a thing called Joomla! emerged.

Since then I've made it my niche, building my web design business up from a handful of static html sites to now being involved in building, hosting or consulting on over 200 Joomla sites since 2007.

Having helped found the Melbourne Joomla User Group in 2008, I've been actively part of the Joomla Australia community, contributing to JUGs & attending every JoomlaDay in Australia except for two over the years.

After participating in the Update Working Group for the release of 3.3 in 2015, I've concentrated on using my spare hours to parent twins, able to resurface in 2020 to look at ways to contribute to the Joomla project now that they're a little more self contained (or is it self absorbed?)

In addition to becoming a Joomla Community Magazine Staff Writer, I've been providing support to the Bugs & Fun @ Home events running during isolation, where I've been honing my development knowledge, learning skills relating to Joomla Patch Testing, how to use GitHub, contributing to translations and documentation, and looking forward to the upcoming release of Joomla 4 as a result.

Currently my Melbourne based Joomla consultancy, KPS, are moving to specialise in managed Joomla hosting and support, as well as delivering services to small business to assist them optimising their online and virtual profiles, especially in light of the new normal we'll see once the world recovers from COVID-19.
