Who is Jomres for? part 2

The bulk of this post is taken from a comment on the forum, regarding mention of technical aspects of the software on the newly revamped home page of the website.

The commenter rightly questions the wisdom of this and lead me onto one of my, as usual, long winded replies, which I'll share below.

Who is Jomres for? part 1

The key question any business must ask, is who're we hoping to reach? With a business like Jomres, which produces a product, this is an even more important question. Finding the answer is much harder than you might think.

Sometimes, before you can answer a question like that, you first have to understand where a system like Jomres came from.

vince picDeveloped and maintained by Vince Wooll, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. Between 2010 and 2018 he was an integral part of the project and made many significant contributions.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and Vince have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous Valentina Template Override Package.
