A little while ago we made the decision here at OSTraining.com to alter how our name is shown to visitors.
We changed "Open Source Training" to "OSTraining" throughout our site. The main reason? In our user testing and customer interactions we constantly found that people were confused about the phrase "Open Source". We kept on hearing comments like these:
One of our teachers, Gabe Wahhab, runs a Joomla development company called Savvy Panda. They're based up in Milwaukee in the USA and they do great work.
They also have a cool competition going on: they're giving away a free Joomla 2.5 Upgrade.
To help the winner make the most of their 2.5 site, they'll also get:
- A set up of sh404SEF, the top SEO extenison for Joomla.
- Their site mobilized by the excellent Mobile Joomla.
- 6 months of membership to OSTraining.

The history of each reflects the philosophy of two different development philosophies.
