The 9th Italian JoomlaDay was a fantastic event. Just like previous years, there were a lot of happy faces and great sessions. It's a good example of what our Community is all about: have fun, learn and connect with others. JoomlaDay Italy also hosted an exam with great results. Almost 50% of the candidates passed.

Another great milestone has been reached. On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, Marc Dechèvre passed his exam at Joomla! Learning Partner R2H. Although the exam was in The Netherlands, Marc became the first Belgian Joomla! Administrator.

On Saturday, October 15, 2016, Italian Joomlers had the opportunity to attend the first Joomla! Administrator Exam in Italy. This session has been hosted by a Joomla! Learning Partner in a data center in Pisa, where candidates used an incredibly fast internet connection (757 Mbps). Bonaventura Pizzoferro and Mattia Cattaneo became the first two Italian certified Joomla! Administrators. Supervisor Luca Marzo congratulated them on behalf of the Joomla! Certification Program.

We asked organizer Marco Mangione about this experience with the JCP as a Joomla! Learning Partner.
