Joomla! workshop

Last week I conducted a Joomla! workshop in Tamil for mainly North and East people of Sri Lanka. It is a two days workshop and I did it well than I thought. Enjoyed a lot..

I think the participants too. All appreciated well.. Send mails... Called...

The important think is that they really learnt Joomla! almost all the participants were confident that they can develop the site. Thats a great thing and it seems some of them have developed site for their institute and published.

This workshop is organized by ICTA Sri lanka.


LAKapps is a project of localizing Open Source applications in Sri Lankan local languages viz Tamil and Sinhala. I am in the core team.
We are doing various projects and the project that we started are successfully done till now. Thats a great thing I suppose.

We have localized following FOSS into Tamil :
Mozilla Firefox
Mozilla Thunderbird
Squirrel Mail

Also we localized following into Sinhala :
Mozilla Thunderbird

We also prepared user manuals for all the software that we localized. And other than that we prepared Video training for Joomla! and Open Office.

Next 2nd september 2009 LAKapps is going to organize a Symposium on Local Language Application and Systems.
