Jan van Kuijk

"Joomla is my profession", says Jan van Kuijk.

Jan van Kuijk is a true Joomla fanatic. Starting in 2006 with the construction of its own Joomla 1.0 portal with news from Hungary in Dutch, Joomla became a daily activity and a profession. Each year approximately 100 sites come under his care, where the activities range from installing a plugin, module or component to build complex sites and shops. The continuity of the business is in the daily maintenance of sites for his customers.

Two years ago he was the initiator and stil organizer of the Joomla User Group in Breda, the south west of The Netherlands. The group has meetings every month with about 10 to 20 attendees. Recently he was the initiator of the Joomla User Group in Eindhoven in the south east of The Netherlands.

Besides the JUG in The Netherlands he wants to get involved in the Joomla User Groups in Hungary.

Jan has two home countries: his motherland The Netherlands and his passion-country Hungary.

The nature of its service does not depend on the place on earth where Jan is. A connection to the internet and a cell phone is enough to provide maximum service.

Jan speaks Dutch, English and German.
