J and Beyond, is one of two big international Joomla conferences every year, with the Joomla World Conference being the other and it's back for a fourth year.
From May 31st to June 2nd, Joomla! developers and site builders from over 30 countries will gather in Noordwijkerhout, near Amsterdam.
The Keynote - "Life is Short and So Am I".
This is an 18 minute TED style presentation on 'intentionalizing' your life. On January 25, 2013 I turned 19,000 days old. I know - that's kind of weird. Who counts how many days they've been alive? As it turns out, it's a great way to really make each day count and there's a lot of wisdom in doing so.
Sociologists tell us that our 20's are the 'most important' decade of our lives. What I'm going to be sharing is something I wish someone had told me around day 9,000 of my life... not day 19,000. Life IS short and coincidentally, so am I. It gives you an interesting perspective - when all you can see is 'backs and butts' when standing in line for things - its like not seeing the forest for the trees all the time.
I want to help folks see that while not every day can be remarkable, you can make a remarkable difference in at least one person's life, every day.
If you want to find out how many days old you are right now, go to imrodmartin.com/my-days.
The Session - Deliver Great Client Training.
On Sunday, I'll be presenting a similar session to the one I did at the Joomla World Conference - Deliver Great Client Training.
I'm really looking forward to interacting with Joomla devs and users who live mostly outside the U.S. - should be a great time!
