JoomCast 022 - Chat with Hans Van Der Meer - A Joomla volunteer
Welcome to the last episode of JoomCast season #1. Today we speak with Hans van der Meer. Hans has been volunteering with Joomla since the beginning of Joomla and has been an active contributor to the Joomla project. Speaking to Hans was a unique experience since he doesn’t develop websites or extensions for Joomla but still volunteers his time and that is something different between himself and the rest of our guests. Hans Thanks Alison Meeks for her contribution to the Joomla project. With that, we say Farewell for the time being from JoomCast. It has been a very smooth ride meeting all the amazing people from the Joomla Community and we’ll be back with a much more exciting Season soon very soon! Hans is also a certified Joomla administrator. You can know more about him here.
