    This presentation will cover the advantages for government for using Joomla! It will also cover the challenges that are faced by Joomla! developers when dealing with government. An overview of the government’s take on open source standards, free / open CMS and direction in dealing with website development will be undertaken. A case study (of how not to develop a CMS-based website will be presented). Another quick case study will be presented – Dihlabeng local municipality (www.dihlabeng.gov.za) website – to demonstrate a better approach to ensuring government’s buy-in into Joomla! A few key issues relating to how government should approach open source standards will be discussed. Government’s own hiccups in adopting and employing Joomla! will be highlighted as well – these will include a politically-enabling environment, corruption, lack of knowledge and being out of step with current web trends. A kit of important tools that could be typically used by government will be developed. I will also present a Joomla! package aimed at governments – with very typical ingredients for a government website. The toolkit will be a pre-packaged Joomla installation that governments can use and configure with ease. This toolkit will include an administration component, a typical template, with other components that can be typical to Joomla. All of these will take into consideration licensing issues of each separate template / component etc. Codenamed Mmuso, a conceptual Joomla-built website / template that is aimed at government sites will be unveiled.

          Capital Spreads: http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/ccount/click.php?id=3 Which normally is your busiest trading months? The number of trades we take really does depend on what's happening on the market. In August 2011, which traditionally is a quiet month - we witnessed record trades numbers for instance. So really the busiest trading periods are very much dependent on what the stock markets do and if there are big moves.

                  A case study about a joomla website (http://www.ocsl.ch) using Zoo (yootheme), Morph (joomlajunkie), Acesef (joomace) and other small extentions like simpletitle (module), mission control (rockettheme) etc. Basically, it started from a website made with a software called Webaccapella which allows beginners to get a website up and running without knowing anything about coding. However, it lacks the insight to optimal web performance. For example, every elements are absolutely positioned, the amount of codes per page are insane etc. The goal was to “reproduce” this website, by using joomla and the extensions mentioned above. On the old website, about a 1000 € each month was spent on google add in order to get clients. On the new website, which has been up and running for about 8 months (only 3 month for the stable version), the company is generating more clients with no money spent on google add. For this case study, I will talk about : How we proceeded to reproduce the site Morph (performances, costume php to load css files according to the app being used with zoo etc.) Zoo (Setting up different apps, different layouts, maybe costume elements or using existing elements, types etc.) Acesef (setting it up for zoo, getting the url working well and customising it, metedata, generating sitemap etc.) Simple title (how to get it work well with zoo’s categories, item etc.) Day 2, Track 2 Presenter: Yannick Gaultier (FR) (AnythingDigital) Dates: 19-20 August 2011 Venue: The Pavillion Conference Centre in the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa
