As Joomla! professionals in Alberta, Canada, there are many reasons we love this Content Management System, or CMS. In previous posts, we've talked about how Joomla! is a great choice for a professional web design because it's robust, secure and flexible, but one of the things that sets this CMS apart, in our minds, is that they're continuously working to improve the platform for users like you. For anyone who chooses to work with our website designers to create a custom Joomla! site, this is just added reassurance that your website investment is going to be worth every cent.
Here are some recent developments in the world of Joomla! that only add to the awesomeness of this CMS:
Joomla! Voted Number 1 for Best Free CMS - Again!
Back in November, Joomla! was voted number one in the best free CMS category for the CMS Critic Awards 2016.

Accepted for Google Summer of Code 2017
Google Summer of Code is a program that Google runs for college students. Basically, students get credit for improving and writing new features for designated projects. In past years, Joomla! received several new features through this program, including multilingual associations manager (Joomla! 3.7) and the template manager (Joomla! 3.2). This year, 10 students will be working to improve the CMS, which means only bigger and better things are in store for Joomla! users.
