Lots of things to be happy about. (That is, if everything in this presentation finds its way into Joomla 3.0)
As Matt Thomas told us earlier this month, Joomla is going to use the Twitter Bootstrap framework. This is great because a lot of developers and companies are already using Bootstrap. Now that it will be shipping with Joomla, they will more likely consider Joomla because they are already using Bootstrap. (FYI: Bootstrap is a responsive CSS/HTML/jQuery framework developed by the UI folks at Twitter. It was originally developed for use with Twitter's in-house projects, and they decided to share it with the world.
Improved admin back end design. Let's face it, Joomla's current and previous back-ends are not nearly as pretty and user-friendly as the one that ships with WordPress, but Kyle has done an amazing job cleaning it up and making it more user friendly. I have been told by more than one user that Joomla's back-end can be intimidating. I was impressed by the new back-end design in Kyle's slides.
Kyle has also done an amazing job designing the Joomla responsive (mobile) template which is based on Bootstrap.
We are very lucky to have Kyle working on Joomla. I have been using his AdminPraise and ProjectFork templates for years and it is great that he is using his amazing talents to improve Joomla core. I met Kyle and his wife at Joomla Day NYC 2011. He is super friendly and he loved his first trip to NYC.
Hopefully, we can bring him back this year.
