What is Joomla!?
  • Joomla is an award-winning content management
    system (CMS), which enables you to build Web
    sites and powerful online applications. Many
    aspects, including its ease-of-use and
    extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular
    Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla
    is an open source solution that is freely
    available to everyone.

5
What can Joomla! Do?
  • Joomla is used all over the world to power Web
    sites of all shapes and sizes. For example
  • Corporate Web sites or portals
  • Corporate intranets and extranets
  • Online magazines, newspapers, and publications
  • E-commerce and online reservations
  • Government applications
  • Small business Web sites
  • Non-profit and organizational Web sites
  • Community-based portals
  • School and church Web sites
  • Personal or family homepages

How will Joomla! help me?
  • Joomla is designed to be easy to install and set
    up even if you're not an advanced user. Many Web
    hosting services offer a single-click install,
    getting your new site up and running in just a
    few minutes.
  • Since Joomla is so easy to use, as a Web designer
    or developer, you can quickly build sites for
    your clients. Then, with a minimal amount of
    instruction, you can empower your clients to
    easily manage their own sites themselves.
  • If your clients need specialized functionality,
    Joomla is highly extensible and thousands of
    extensions (most for free under the GPL license)
    are available in the Joomla Extensions Directory.

8
What are some advanced ways I can use Joomla?
  • Many companies and organizations have
    requirements that go beyond what is available in
    the basic Joomla package. In those cases,
    Joomla's powerful application framework makes it
    easy for developers to create sophisticated
    add-ons that extend the power of Joomla into
    virtually unlimited directions.
  • The core Joomla framework enables developers to
    quickly and easily build
  • Inventory control systems
  • Data reporting tools
  • Application bridges
  • Custom product catalogs
  • Integrated e-commerce systems
  • Complex business directories
  • Reservation systems
  • Communication tools
  • Since Joomla is based on PHP and MySQL, you're
    building powerful applications on an open
    platform anyone can use, share, and support. To
    find out more information on leveraging the
    Joomla framework, visit the Joomla Developer
    Network.
