Technology on the internet changes fast, and seems to speed up every year. Polished Geek has been providing Joomla!® web development services since February 2009, and the Joomla world sure has changed since then!

One of the best ways to stay up to date and ahead of the curve with all things Joomla is to be an active member of the Joomla Community. Here's what's coming up next for us...

JWC13 Sponsors

Polished Geek financially promotes select Joomla events each year. In 2013 we sponsored the Joomla World Conference, helping celebrate the arrival of Joomla 3.2 and two-factor authentication for Joomla with a YubiKey giveaway.

If you are like some of us, you really like to meet new people, but hesitate sometimes without something suitably witty to say to open a conversation. (Our Geeks are certainly no extroverts like Brian Teeman!) All of us historically are a bit shy and introverted at a crowded conference like JWC.

So to connect with our fellow introverts, our sponsorship at Joomla World Conference 2013 provided a built-in excuse to walk right up and say hi.

We gave away over a hundred free YubiKeys at JWC 2013 by inviting attendees to find one of our Geeks and snap a picture with us. Once they did, they got a free YubiKey worth $25.

PG key

Why did we pick YubiKeys? Because Joomla 3.2 released in November of that year was the first Joomla CMS version to support two-factor authentication through a couple of different methods, including YubiKey. 

We're still YubiKey fans to this day. If you are not quite sure what YubiKey is or why you might want one, visit http://www.yubico.com/.

The Obligatory Giveaway Disclaimers:
Supplies are limited! Only 1 YubiKey per person.
We can't promise that we're photogenic or that you will be. Photo bombs encouraged.

JWC13 Presenters

Polished Geek is honored that our CEO Deb Cinkus was selected to present two sessions at the 2013 Joomla World Conference.
