Joomla! User Group Toronto, Toronto’s premier forum for Joomla! users and developers, announced today that it will participate with the Joomla! Project in IT360° Conference and Expo 2008, Canada’s leading information technology event.
With an objective of helping web developers and webmasters to better leverage the Joomla! CMS platform, Joomla! User Group Toronto, or JUG-T as they are often referred to, is mobilizing its membership to help staff booth 531 at the upcoming conference, to be held April 7-9, 2008, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building.
“We are very excited to be involved in such a high-profile event,” said Michelle Bisson, Joomla! Core Team member and a member of the JUG-T core team. “JUG-T is pleased to be invited to participate in an expo like this as it is a great opportunity to let people know that we are here for them. We look forward to showing attendees the power of Joomla!.”

We currently have a Facebook Group and a Google Group, and we are looking at other ways of expanding the community.” “Plan to attend the evening Joomla! Birds of a Feather session from 5pm to 7pm as well,” added JUG-T co-chair Norman Di Pasquale, “to see a full demonstration on how to build a Website using Joomla!.
