First JoomlaDay Minnesota Set for July 19th

First JoomlaDay Minnesota Set for July 19th(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – CNP Integrations becomes bronze sponsor of the first Joomla Day Minnesota event planned for July 19th at the Aloft Hotel in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

JoomlaDay events had their beginnings in the Netherlands with the first event back in 2006. They were established as a place for Joomla enthusiasts to gather, socialize, network, and learn about what makes Joomla such a special Content Management System and how it can solve real world problems for businesses and organizations. After nearly 8 years, the Midwest takes another leap forward by debuting Minnesota’s first ever JoomlaDay event in the state. CNP Integrations founder Christopher Nielsen, having roots in Minnesota, jumped aboard to sponsor the event as a way to show its support and build continued enthusiasm for Joomla! and the community that surrounds it. The July 19 event has already attracted a good number of professionals in the field to share interesting ideas and present informative tidbits on using Joomla to power better web sites.

JoomlaDay events have grown in popularity over the past eight years. With 2012 events clocking in the most visitors, attracting an average attendance of 320 people with represent participation from all over the world. Aside from powering nearly 3% of all websites in the world, Joomla! speakers and presentations on average also grew significantly for 2011 and 2012. These are all impressive stats that reflect the growing innovativeness the platform has brought to the marketplace.

“What better way to give back to the community than sponsor an event that serves as a gateway for people to ‘Do More’ with Joomla. We’re definitely glad to see this event coming together, in Twin Cities especially. Attendees of the event can connect with international contributors and leaders within the Joomla community. By participating, folks will get to be part of a powerful force that is making the Internet a better place for everyone,” says Chris Nielsen, CEO/General Manager of CNP Integrations.

Mike “Demo” Demopoulos, co-organizer of JoomlaDay Minnesota, also reiterated why this is a momentous event. “Minnesota is a beacon for technology innovation but has been lagging in Web Development as a whole. With three tracks geared from beginners to website and business owners, as well as developers—we are really excited to bring together the community that will help Minnesota shine in web technologies as it does as well in health technologies.”
