Joomla is best for developers and those that need a powerful, extensible CMS. It is a solid offering that has a lot of functionality, while not being overwhelming on the first login. It can accomplish a lot with only the core, and is especially adept when you consider all of the third-party extensions that are available for it. There is a huge community backing Joomla so the good news is you generally can get fast help on their forums.
Developing themes may not be as easy when compared to other systems. Joomla has a large community devoted to it, with a million module creators, but that can get frustrating to find the right one for your needs. Sometimes you have to resort to using commercial modules which can cost a lot of money.
