Event Description

We've looked at converting a static Joomla site before and we've looked at creating a Joomla site from a premade Joomla club template. This session we'll look at creating a Joomla template from a PDS design. That is, a designer has presented us with a site design and we'll convert it into a working Joomla website.

This session assumes that you already know HTML, CSS and a general basic understanding of what Joomla is and how to use it


Please arrive between 5:30pm and 6:00pm. We're aiming to get started at 6:00 sharp!

We charge $10 for the night to cover costs of print material and food for the night.
