The Joomla! Community

Joomla means All Together, and it is a community of people all working and having fun together that makes Joomla possible. Thousands of people each year participate in the Joomla community, and we hope you will be one of them.

People with all kinds of skills, of all skill levels and from around the world are welcome to join in. Participate in the family of websites (the forum is a great place to start). Come to a Joomla! event. Join or start a Joomla! Users Group. Whether you are a developer, site administrator, designer, end user or fan, there are ways for you to participate and contribute.

The Joomla! Project

The Joomla Project consists of all of the people who make and support the Joomla Web Platform and Content Management System.

Our mission is to provide a flexible platform for digital publishing and collaboration.

The core values are:

  • Freedom
  • Equality
  • Trust
  • Community
  • Collaboration
  • Usability

In our vision, we see:

  • People publishing and collaborating in their communities and around the world
  • Software that is free, secure, and high-quality
  • A community that is enjoyable and rewarding to participate in
  • People around the world using their preferred languages
  • A project that acts autonomously
  • A project that is socially responsible
  • A project dedicated to maintaining the trust of its users

There are millions of users around the world and thousands of people who contribute to the Joomla Project. They work in three main groups: the Production Working Group, responsible for everything that goes into software and documentation; the Community Working Group, responsible for creating a nurturing the community; and Open Source Matters, the non profit organization responsible for managing legal, financial and organizational issues.

Joomla is a free and open source project, which uses the GNU General Public License version 2 or later.

Our Mission

The Law Office of Brodie Hacken's mission is to provide quality, affordable legal representation to the people of Minnesota.  We strive to accomplish this by offering affordable rates, keeping abreast of the ever-changing nature of Minnesota criminal law, and working closely with our clients to best serve their individual needs.

We understand that no two clients are the same, so we focus on treating each individual client with the care and attention they need in order to best understand their situation.  What may be an acceptable outcome for one client could be completely out of the question for another.  We listen to what you have to say and do our best to mirror your values.

Lastly, we carry ourselves in a manner that will make our clients proud.  You won't catch us fighting with opposing counsel, arguing with a judge, or being rude to court administration.  We firmly believe that an attorney can be effective without being abrasive.  The old adage that you can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar holds true for us.  We treat everyone with the respect they deserve so that you won't ever have to apologize for us.


  • Extensions

    The Joomla! content management system lets you create webpages of various types using extensions. There are 5 basic types of extensions: components, modules, templates, languages, and plugins. Your website includes the extensions you need to create a basic website in English, but thousands of additional extensions of all types are available. The Joomla! Extensions Directory is the largest directory of Joomla extensions.
