In addition to being very friendly to administrators, the Joomla system is also pleasant to developers. Creating an extension (module, component, or plug-in) can be a pleasure, since the Joomla framework is designed with the developer in mind. In fact, since Joomla takes care of most of the interface presentation and has built-in routines for database access and security, creating a Joomla extension can be quite a bit easier than authoring even a simple standalone PHP application.
