A question we are asked time and again by business owners who have a Joomla website is when should they migrate to the latest version. It's a difficult question to answer because no one size fit all method can be applied due to the variety of different ways Joomla can be used, but here are some of the key decision points to help you plan when you should migrate your Joomla website.
I mostly blog about the Joomla! Content Management System, business networking, and other geeky subjects which I think are interesting.
I am primarily involved with the day to day management of our website projects, ongoing support contracts and liaising with our clients from across the world.
... and I'm feeling good!
Yes, so I have had the Michael Bublé album playing just a little bit too much over Christmas, I admit!
Today is our first day back from the Christmas break, which was definitely much needed after a rather hectic few months! Much has changed over the past twelve months at Virya Technologies, and in the coming weeks and months we've got some exciting developments to announce - make sure you follow us on social media to stay up to date!
Security is something that always seems to be in the headlines - especially when it comes to websites and servers being hacked or organisations losing important data.

With the Suffolk Business Exhibition fast approaching I thought it might be helpful to pull together a few hints and tips that we have learned over the past few years to help you get through exhibitions and still be smiling at the end of it!
For those who don't attend exhibitions, or attend as a visitor, you may still find some helpful tips!
I've spent the last few days over at Joomla! and Beyond in Bad Nauheim, Germany - an international Joomla! conference which brings together Joomla! people from over 30 countries.
Although I've been involved in running Joomla! User Group Suffolk and Joomla! Day UK events for the past few years, I've never yet travelled abroad for a Joomla! event, so it was a first for me!
I've always harped on about the Joomla! community and how it was what originally drew me to Joomla! (I've probably already bored you with my stories of having to figure out from the forums what the default username was when installing Joomla! 1.0.x!) and I still stand by the fact that the community is the most important element of the JoomlaSphere.
