Interview with the JoomlaBeat Podcast

This week I was interviewed by Pete Bui of the JoomlaBeat Podcast, about my recent visit to the Joomla World Conference.

For someone who doesn't like public speaking and generally tries to avoid the limelight - I'm having an interesting, "extrovert" kind of week... 🤔😱😂

Listen to "Ep108 - Nicky Veitch Talks About Joomla World Conference 2017" on Spreaker.
