As we approach Joomla's 10th Birthday it is not surprising that my mind is drawn back to the days of August 2005 when it all began. In ten years there is so much history to share but not all of it is well known - or perhaps even that interesting. There is a fun game called "six degrees of separation" and this is my attempt at finding the connection between Hollywood star Vin Diesel and Joomla.
On August 17th Joomla will be 10 years old. That's a truly amazing achievement for any open source project especially one that is 100% community run without any corporate overlord or backer.
10 years of a global community working together motivated not by money or personal gain but solely to create something that the world can use freely.
