In 2002, Chuck left the corporate world and started a new company, Blue Water Associates. This company is located near the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe where he designs, develops, and maintains websites for small to medium sized businesses, both within the U.S. and abroad. Chuck has been developing websites using Joomla! since 2007 with the release of version 1.5 and has developed several extensions for use in the websites he has designed. This is Chuck's first book as an author, although he has reviewed and edited several books and written numerous technical articles for publication. James Kennard is a computer programmer. He has worked with various PHP and MySQL applications, since 2002. He quickly discovered Mambo/Joomla! because of its flexible extension manager.
