Great Documentation

So much documentation and clear documentation compared to other open source platforms out there.

Extensions to Enhance Joomla

Allows You to Develop a Career in Web Development

Since Joomla is free, it is very accessible in regards to being able to pick it up and start using. Documentation, the CMS and a selection of extensions are all freely available for anyone to start using and developing their own websites.

It Has Given Us a Thriving Business and Has Brought Us Together
