  • JWC14 JET Recipients Announced

    The Joomla Event Travel Programme (JET) is pleased to announce that we have selected 15 members from the worldwide Joomla community. With 49 applications to choose from, it was a difficult decision that was made easier because of the criteria point system that was put into place prior to the call for applications.

    We also selected some people who are heavily involved in core teams so they will be able to meet face-to-face with their team members. Next year we will be giving more opportunities to new candidates.

    We would like to congratulate the following JWC14 JET recipients:

    Achal Aggarwal
    Alejandro Pascoli
    Brian Teeman
    Chad Windnagle
    Dawn Russell
    Eric Lamy
    George Wilson
    Jacques Rentzke
    Jennifer Gress
    Jorge Leonardo Soto Pozo
    Kshitij Sharma
    Nadeeshaan Gunasinghe
    Roland Dalmulder
    Ryan Bernstein
    Sigrid Suski

    They will have the cost of admission covered to the upcoming Joomla! World Conference on November 7 - 9, 2014 in Cancun, Mexico, and will receive assistance with travel and lodging.

    The JET Programme is an initiative that was created to support active project volunteers and community members who have dedicated time and energy to make Joomla better; and who would like to attend larger Joomla events, such as J and Beyond and the Joomla! World Conference.

    We wish to thank all those who applied, and congratulate those who were accepted! We look forward to seeing you in sunny Cancun in November!
