About Learn Joomla!

Learn Joomla! is aimed at the busy person who wants to get to grips with Joomla! quickly. Are you spending hours ploughing through the very technical online documentation, or Googling for snippets of information and tutorials or laboriously studying hundred of forum posts to try to piece together how Joomla! works?

Learn Joomla! short circuits all that wasted time and energy by putting all the information you need to get started in one place, with either an easy to follow step-by-step book, or a one-day hands on training course in central London, UK.

Learn Joomla! was established in 2006, when Mike Lloyd, an experienced IT entrepreneur, was teaching himself Joomla! to build a website for a new business. Mike was impressed at the power of Joomla! but found that it was very difficult to get to grips with Joomla! quickly, as Joomla! was not intuitive for a beginner and the documentation in those days left a lot to be desired.

The first Learn Joomla! Book was published in January 2007, and new editions have been published regularly since then to keep up with the new Joomla developments.

Our first training course was run in September 2007 in response to requests from readers.

If you are completely new to Joomla! and have reasonable IT skills and ideally a little practical knowledge of HTML (but not essential), our beginners books and courses will introduce you to the basic concepts behind Joomla! and get you to build your first site more quickly than if you have to sift through the Joomla! information on the web and try to piece it all together yourself.

Unlike other books and courses, the emphasis is on learning by doing – not by studying reference handbooks.

We are experts in building Joomla! sites having built some more than 50 Joomla! websites in the last five years. We are constantly updating our knowledge by building new sites and updating others as Joomla! develops. If you need help with building your website please feel free to contact us for more information over at Lloyd Creative, our website development and marketing business.

In summary, our books and course are for people who are short of time and want to build quality content based websites and want to know how to make Joomla! do it for them quickly.

We have books for all the versions of Joomla! from 1.0. to 1.5 and 2.5 available now in our online shop ready to purchase and download.  You can book a place on our  next one day training course online too - click here for details.
