The incredible possibilities offered by the Joomla Task Scheduler

Slides available on https://slides.woluweb.be/tasks/tasks.html 


Since version 4.1 (and so also in 5.x series) Joomla introduced a very interesting new feature called "Scheduled Tasks".

Even though it has been present for more than two years, everytime I exchange with other Joomlers I realize that the majority has overlooked the power of this feature.

So the goal of this session is to shed some light on the possibilities at the hand of different examples / usecases:
- some are native Plugins, ready to be used within Joomla
- some are third-party Plugins, typically open source and available for free on Github
- and of course the whole idea is that you can also create your own, in order to meet your specific needs
