Joomla is a content management system (CMS) that allows you to build websites and online applications. Content Management System software enables one to keep on top of all content on a website like text, photos, video, music, documents etc. Because a CMS doesn't require any technical skill or knowledge to operate, it allows many people the ability to manage their own site without having to go to a web developer/master every time changes or updates are needed.
Joomla is an open source content management system that is free and available to all. It is a very popular CMS and is considered the second most used on the Internet after WordPress. Based on PHP and MySQL, Joomla is an open platform that allows developers to create an unlimited variety of add-ons/extensions that increase Joomla's power and capabilities. It is estimated that there are over 9,000 free extensions (software components that add specific abilities) for Joomla allowing it to be a very customizable system.
Joomla is used to power almost any kind of website you can imagine: corporate sites; intranets/extranets; online publications, newspapers, magazines; e-commerce sites; government sites; small business sites; community-based portals; school & church sites; personal or family sites.
Joomla is considered fairly easy to install and set-up with a large growing online community for general support. Joomla has been with us since the beginning of the year 2000, seems to be growing in popularity, and will most likely be around for a while.

A note to let you know how much I appreciate your team's work. Justin is on top of quickly solving any issues, making changes, reliable. Finding you was one of the luckiest days of my 74 years. I'd be honored if you'd add me to your list of references. And please stay healthy and in business. I got enough headaches from other folks.

We discovered an issue with our Oscommerce cart processing images. It is about 14 years old and heavily modified. Looking on google for some expert help I found Rich and reached out to him. We received a response the same day. The next day his team was working on our issue and was able to solve it within a few hours. Price was reasonable and we are very appreciative to find a competent and professional oscommerce expert to help successfully troubleshoot our issue.

"I worked with Rich because my website was not working due to being old and out dated. Rich explained to me the cause of the problems and gave me different options to fix the problems. Rich was able to get my website up and running very quickly and would not even charge me! I am so impressed with Rich's honesty. When it comes time I will be calling on Rich to update my site. He has earned a loyal customer. Thanks Rich!!"

"WOW! I didn't expect my service request to be handled so quickly. I reached out to Rich for a quote to help migrate my WordPress website and heard back from him within hours. He called me to discuss and was super friendly and straight to the point. I couldn't have asked for better service. Computer Geek will definitely be my go-to for all website and IT needs!

I want to commend you on the brilliance of the work Computer-Geek has accomplished for expHand Inc. During certain website issues, the company experienced that had the company website taken down through no fault of the company. After Google did not offer the assistance to reload the website, the work Computer-Geek undertook to have the expHand Inc. website updated and reinstalled was remarkable. I would suggest to any company looking for website assistance from development to rectifying big and small problems that they should contact Computer-Geek.
The personal attention given to expHand by Rich did not leave anything to chance. He worked with us as if he was a treasured employee of long-standing. How Computer-Geek continues to be of assistance delivers a continuous piece of mind. expHand will be a client for life. All the best,

If you're looking for a Joomla expert, look no further. We hired The Computer Geek to migrate our Joomla site last summer. The move was smooth and successful with no down time at all. I've contacted Rich with various web development issues since then and he's always found the solution. Exceptional service at competitive prices.

Rich was friendly & immediately helpful. Couldn't get into my website to update it & had let the situation drag on for months. Clicked on this website & Rich was friendly & immediately helpful, said he could sort things out and did so with promptness & efficiency - not rushing off afterwards, but taking time to make sure the job was done properly. I'd certainly use this company again when I next have a problem. Well worth $120.

"If you have a problem with your website, or want
"If you have a problem with your website, or want to add some special functionality, you need to deal with someone you can trust who will fix your problem without making things worse. Finding someone like this is risky. How do you know he or she can do the job? How do you know you won't be left hanging? From our direct experience you can place your trust in these guys. The word 'fantastic' is much over-used these day but these people really are fantastic. Coming fresh into our site and knowing nothing about the specific software we were using, within minutes they were fixing issues. Frankly, I have no idea how you get this good. It's almost super-human. And when they hit a speed-bump, they don't turn around and place the onus on you like many specialists or blame someone else: they just fix it and move on. I trusted our entire site to them - more than 100 man-years of content - and within days we were completely fixed."
