At the last count, there were over 8000 extensions available in the Joomla! Extensions Directory. Some of these extensions can fulfill specific tasks (such as form creation and shopping carts), whilst others can enhance your entire Joomla! experience.
Sadiq Datoo of LNMO.co.uk has been creating Joomla! web sites for many years. He will share which Joomla! extensions you should be using on your web sites, which ones to steer clear from and how to tell the difference.
In addition, Sadiq will be available to discuss some tried and tested extensions for particular tasks and provide a space for delegates to discuss their 'must have' Joomla! extensions.

There is no getting around the fact that, due to an intriguing history, when it comes to Web standards IE's name is mud with many web developers. The
legacy of IE6, leading edge in its day, still lingers nearly 10 years after its release and the nightmare of browser incompatibilities and CSS hacks still has web developers waking in cold sweats.
The good news is that IE6 usage is down to 3.5% in the UK and the better news is that over the past few years Microsoft has made a concerted effort to
make that challenging history, well, history, and the outcome is IE9. The new browser illustrates Microsoft's focus on standards and speed and has resulted in a browser that has surprised even our fiercest critics. It's been a long journey and in this talk.
Martin Beeby will discuss how the community helped us build our best Internet Explorer yet and the amazing things that it's capable of and what changes you might need to make to your sites to support it. We'll also take a look into the future of IE and Microsoft
plan to maintain the momentum.

Joomla is great, in fact it's fantastic!. Of course you can make websites using it, but you could also sell extensions, build bespoke extensions, sell your time for support per hour etc.
The main question is usually, if your giving your work away for free, how do you make money?
During this session, we will look at how you can make a living from Joomla, and pay your bills!
The session will have multiple people who earn their income solely from the Joomla system in different ways, so you can see the different methods available and have a good cross section of information to help you in your business or career.
