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.
10 years ago today I set off on my travels for my first whole day community event. (Obviously it was called a MamboDay and not a JoomlaDay back then as it was six months before the "spork"). Looking back on that event it is great for me to see that I am still good friends with many of the people who were there that day.
