Ep72 - Pizza, Bugs and Fun Event with Nick Savov & My New Co-Host
This week we have the global Pizza, Bugs and Fun event being held virtually around the world on the 17th of October 2014.
I also introduce my lovely new co-host for the podcast, Martina Kocian. Completely new to the Joomla community and I hope will bring some balance to the podcast from the perspective of a site user and newer user of the CMS.

Joomla World Conference is Just Around the Corner
If you are in Central America and you would like a free ticket to the Joomla World Conference this year being held in Cancun, please let me know or use the code.
This week Martina picked an extension from the Joomla! Extension Directory and it is "Latest News Timeline". A great way to display blog posts in the form of a vertical timeline as opposed to a regular long blog page or article list.
